At Oakbrook Orthodontics, our ultimate goal is to provide each patient with a beautiful, radiant smile that projects assurance and confidence. For those living in Wheaton and surrounding communities, Dr. Neal LaRoia and his staff provide expert orthodontic care individually designed for each of our patients.
When you come to us for treatment, we want you to feel comfortable and confident, and we want you to know that our staff will always provide you with the quality dental care you deserve.
Orthodontic treatment works with appliances made of metal, ceramic, or plastic to correct dental imperfections, and may be either removable aligners or traditional brackets bound to your teeth.
After your initial consultation with Dr. Neal, whatever approach is taken, the duration of your treatment can last from one to three years, depending on various factors. The treatment time variables include things such as your age, how minor or severe your dental situation is, and the orthodontic treatment method that is used.
When you come to Oakbrook Orthodontics, you can be assured that we will work with you and give you all of your treatment options to find the one that is best for you.
Oakbrook Orthodontic Services in Wheaton
At Oakbrook Orthodontics we use today’s most modern technology to help enhance your smile. We are here to help you find the best treatment plan for you and your dental situation.
Invisalign® is one of our most popular treatments, especially among older teens and adults as an alternative to traditional metal braces.
Though either traditional braces or Invisalign® aligners will help straighten your teeth, many see Invisalign’s benefits as more appealing than metal braces. The positives include your overall personal comfort, being able to temporarily remove the aligners so there are no food or drink restrictions, and not having to worry about tightening wires or fixing loose brackets.
Invisalign® uses 3D computer imaging to create your aligners and has been proven to provide impressive results. If you choose this option, Dr. Neal will help determine the right treatment process, including the duration of your treatment and the number of different aligners you will need.
Other Orthodontic Treatment Options
In addition to Invisalign®, our other orthodontic treatments include the following.
- Traditional Metal Braces
- Lightforce™ Braces
- Spark Aligners
- Surgical Orthodontics
Providing mouthguards is another treatment option we provide at Oakbrook Orthodontics. Whether they’re wearing braces or not, mouthguards play an important role in protecting your child’s teeth when they’re playing sports, especially contact sports.
Sports such as football, hockey, soccer, and lacrosse, to name just a few, can all lead to serious mouth injuries and you want to make sure your child is adequately protected.
Types of mouthguards include pre-made, boil-and-bite, and custom-made. Pre-made and boil-and-bite guards can be purchased at sporting goods stores. However, a custom-made guard is highly recommended, and is by far the better option for both comfort and protection, especially if your child is wearing braces.
Whatever type is used, a mouthguard should be tear-resistant, comfortable, and easy to clean.
