Orthodontic care is so essential because straight, properly aligned teeth are associated with optimal oral wellness and a more appealing smile. Here at the practice of Sheldon Jay Rintel, DDS, PC, we combine the benefits of tradition with the benefits of technology to provide outstanding treatment for our patients of all ages. Our office is a pleasant and friendly environment, welcoming to kids as well as adults. And our Elmhurst orthodontist makes your comfort a high priority. There has never been a better time to get teeth straightened and there’s no better place than our office for it.
It’s a good idea to be proactive when it comes to teeth positioning issues. Kids should get their first evaluation by the time they turn 7, regardless of whether they are exhibiting any signs. However, it is crucial to keep a close eye on what’s going on to determine if symptoms like finger or thumb sucking, jaws making noises, misplaced teeth, and mouth breathing, among others should arise. Interceptive orthodontics is a method of treatment that is based on getting started early, around age 7 or sooner. Doing that makes future needs for treatment typically less complex and time-consuming, not to mention less expensive. Our Elmhurst orthodontist has both traditional metal braces and Invisalign, the system of clear aligners. Which is most appropriate will depend on various factors, but consider that metal braces today are more lightweight and stylish, without sacrificing any of their ability to move your teeth into a more ideal position as prescribed by our Elmhurst orthodontist. And Invisalign gives you the cosmetic edge with clear aligners, which are also more comfortable, and can be removed to eat, brush, and floss.
We look forward to being able to help you and your entire family with your orthodontic needs. Please contact us to arrange an appointment.
