Orthodontics in Bloomington, IL

Are gaps between your teeth or a crooked front tooth making you avoid showing the world your smile? If so, an expert in dental orthodontics could change your life.

The Definition of Orthodontics

Orthodontics is a sub-specialty in the dental field that relates to the proper placement and position of the teeth and jaw. Orthodontic abnormalities affect more than just your smile as they can make your teeth more vulnerable to decay and lead to symptoms such as jaw pain, headaches, and problems with chewing and speech. Orthodontics in Bloomington focuses on helping you achieve a healthy mouth; the great smile is a bonus.

How Is an Orthodontist Different?

In addition to four years of standard dental school, orthodontists receive two years of specialized training in the field of orthodontics. An orthodontics specialist uses various types of appliances and systems to reposition teeth and correct jaw problems for both children and adults. If you or your children require braces, retainers, or other corrective devices, your general dentist will refer you to an orthodontics provider.

Conditions Treated by an Orthodontist

An orthodontics specialist provides relief from symptoms and corrects structural problems relating to the following conditions:

  • Rotated or crooked teeth
  • Temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJ)
  • Tooth crowding
  • Inappropriate gaps or spaces between teeth
  • Advanced malocclusion
  • Underbite, overbite, and crossbite

What Is the Orthodontic Treatment Process?

Before developing a treatment plan, your orthodontics specialist will perform a comprehensive exam and offer various treatment options. Your options may include orthodontic braces, clear aligner trays, retainers, space maintainers, night guards, and more. Your provider will work with you to find a treatment that complements your lifestyle and fits your budget. Because treatments may take many months and occasional adjustments are required, you may be under the care of your orthodontics team for an extended period of time.

Is Orthodontics Treatment Expensive?

The price of orthodontic devices and treatments can vary widely from patient to patient. Your dental needs, insurance coverage, and treatment options all play a part. Paying for orthodontic treatment doesn’t have to be stressful. Our providers offer convenient and flexible payment options and discounted rates that make getting affordable orthodontics in Bloomington easier for many patients.
