You and your family can find the latest braces options at Premier Orthodontics & Dental Specialists to make your new smile fast and affordable to meet your unique smile goals.
SureSmile Clear Aligners
If you’re interested in achieving a beautifully straight smile without having to wear braces, SureSmile® clear aligners may be the right treatment for you.
SureSmile clear aligners are recommended for adults and teens and offer increased comfort, high flexibility, lower maintenance, fewer dental visits, and high-quality results.
Today's metal braces are smaller, lighter, and more comfortable to wear than ever before.
There are many varieties of braces including conventional metal braces that consist of high-grade stainless steel and self-ligating braces that allow for faster tooth movement and fewer adjustments.
Clear braces use the same parts as traditional braces, but instead of metal, the brackets on the front side of the teeth are made of see-through ceramic material.
These braces are less noticeable and blend in with your natural smile.
These brackets are placed on the backs of your teeth so no one will ever see them. This gives you a completely invisible option to straighten your smile.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Our dentists at Premier Orthodontics & Dental Specialists are medical professionals trained to recognize symptoms and provide therapeutic care for sleep apnea in children and adults.
Symptoms of sleep apnea can include snoring, waking up with headaches, unusual sleeping positions, inability to focus during the day, feeling tired during the day, heart palpitations, and waking up with dry mouth/sore throat.
Straighten Your Smile
Dr. Radu pairs cutting-edge tech with the skill of moving teeth. This helps Premier Orthodontics & Dental Specialists successfully treat many dental issues, like:
- Gaps between your teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Protruding teeth
- Impacted teeth
Fixed Appliances Vs. Removable Appliances
At Premier Orthodontics & Dental Specialists, we believe you should be fully educated when it comes to your treatment. It’s helpful for patients in our Elmhurst and Downers Grove offices to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances.
Dr. Radu attaches fixed appliances, like braces, to your teeth and won’t take them off until you complete your treatment at Premier Orthodontics & Dental Specialists.
When Dr. Radu recommends a removable appliance like Invisalign’s aligner system, you’ll wear it most of the day but you can take the trays out of your mouth.
Besides the obvious differences, Dr. Radu uses Invisalign aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems and fixed appliances for comprehensive and serious treatment.
Metal Braces & Other Options
Most patients we treat at Premier Orthodontics & Dental Specialists choose traditional metal braces to straighten their teeth.
Metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment in Elmhurst and Downers Grove, but you have other options, too.
After your first free consultation exam, Dr. Radu will talk to you about which treatment would be right for you based on your unique needs and smile goals.
