Orthodontics - Norridge, IL | Schaumburg, IL
Achieve a Straighter, Healthier & More Self-Confident Smile
Misaligned teeth can cause damage to confidence and self-esteem and may even be responsible for intense pain. Orthodontics refers to the treatment of teeth and jaws using various methods, the most popular of which are braces.
Orthodontics is a specialized form of dentistry. In some cases, it may be considered cosmetic dentistry, but other times it corrects non-cosmetic issues. There are numerous types of orthodontic treatments. With today’s advanced medical science, these methods are constantly changing and evolving.
Our staff provides orthodontic treatment for both children and adults. Orthodontics is designed to not only straighten teeth for a more attractive smile, but also provide a proper bite relationship between the upper and law jaw. Treatment can also address jaw and other issues related to facial growth and its relationship to the bite. Through braces, we help our patients establish a foundation for future dental health. In addition to traditional metal braces, we also provide porcelain braces to minimize the visibility of orthodontic treatment.

Phase 1 Orthodontics
Many common orthodontic problems are much, much easier to correct if they’re addressed early in a patient’s life. That’s where Phase 1 treatment comes in! We’ll work closely with your child to create space for developing permanent teeth and provide guidance for their bite as the jaw continues to grow and develop. We can also provide helpful tips to parents regarding how to positively end bad habits like thumb and finger sucking, which can negatively impact teeth over time. As a result, it’s likely that the need for traditional orthodontic treatment will be greatly minimized or even eliminated altogether later down the road.
Traditional braces have been used to correct mild to severe orthodontic concerns for decades now, and they’re still a highly reliable system that benefits children and adults alike here at Royal Dental Care. The system is simple and effective – brackets are connected to orthodontic wires with elastics, which gradually exert pressure on teeth over a span of months or years. In addition to the silver metals we’re all familiar with, more image-conscious patients also have the option of choosing porcelain braces for a much subtler and more aesthetically pleasing treatment process.
Invisalign® Clear Braces
Through the Invisalign® system, many of our patients can enjoy effective orthodontic treatment without the need for traditional metallic braces. In the past, when faced with wearing metal braces, many people simply chose to live with their crooked teeth. Instead, through Invisalign® virtually invisible braces, these individuals can obtain straight teeth and health smiles. Adults considering orthodontic treatment many times wonder how metal braces might be perceived in the professional setting. With Invisalign®, most people will not even realize you are undergoing orthodontic treatment, unless, of course, you decide to tell them.
The Invisalign® system uses a series of clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth. Each aligner is designed to apply the appropriate pressure necessary to move teeth into a more beneficial position. Each Invisalign® aligner is worn for about two weeks, and the overall treatment time is about the same as traditional metal braces. Aligners are worn 24 hours a day, except during meals. The revolutionary nature of Invisalign® has opened the door to high quality, effective orthodontic treatment for many.
Traditional braces can often require up to two or three years of continual wear to be fully successful – many of our patients simply don’t have that kind of time. That’s why Royal Dental Care is also happy to offer Fastbraces, which is a revolutionary alternative that realigns the root and crown portions of natural teeth simultaneously for maximized efficiency. Some patients see positive improvements in just three weeks, with most treatment plans only requiring up to a year at the very most!
Six Month Smiles®
If you’re focused on wanting to correct the alignment of teeth that are very visible in your smile, Six Month Smiles could be the best orthodontic service for your goals. Like the name implies, this system can create beautiful, dramatic improvements over an average of just six months – it accomplishes this by focusing its full energy on correcting prominent teeth. Better yet, the components of the braces are either clear in nature or tooth-colored, which means they blend right in with a patient’s confident image.
AcceleDent is a modern orthodontic technology that can help speed up the effectiveness of traditional braces and more aesthetic services like Invisalign alike. It comes in the form of a lightweight device with a mouthpiece that covers the patient’s braces or aligners in a hands-free manner. You only need to wear it for around 20 minutes daily; the mouthpiece will apply gentle, consistent micropulses to the teeth, accelerating the bone remodeling process. In many cases, treatment speed can be improved by up to 50% as a result!
