Your Chicagoland Family Orthodontist
A native of the Chicagoland area, Dr. Brady moved south to Davidson College to earn a BS in Psychology and met his wife Misty along the way. He considered a career in medicine before falling in love with dentistry and the way it combines artistry, science, and the chance to build significant bonds with patients and their families.
Dr. Brady decided to continue his education and earned a Doctor of Dental Medicine from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry.
While in Dental School, he was a Dean’s Scholar and joined the Delphi Society and Omicron Kappa Upsilon academic honor societies.
To complete his orthodontics training, Dr. Brady returned to the Midwest to attend the University of Iowa College of Dentistry where he received his Masters and Certificate of Orthodontics.
Orthodontics for the Entire Family
Here at Brady Orthodontics, we want to keep your whole family smiling for years to come. We recognize that adults will have different orthodontic needs than children and teens, and each will need unique treatment strategies and care. Our talented team will work with you and your family to ensure that you always receive the most appropriate treatments and that your needs are met with understanding and respect from us.
Chicagoland Orthodontics Treatment Options for Children
There is no exact minimum age for children to begin orthodontic treatment, but the American Association of Orthodontists recommends children receive their first orthodontic evaluation by no later than the age of seven. By this age, most children will have a good mix of baby teeth and adult teeth, making it easier for orthodontists like Dr. Brady to diagnose and correct tooth and jaw problems early. This reduces the risk of dental issues becoming more severe and requiring more serious treatment in the future.
Chicagoland Orthodontics Options for Teens
If you suspect your teen could benefit from orthodontic treatment, you’re both likely to have questions. You may be feeling nervous about the unknown, and your teen may be feeling worried when considering wearing braces or aligners. This is an entirely common reaction, but fortunately, it’s also a temporary one! The bulky, uncomfortable metal braces of the past have given way to the smaller, sleeker braces available today. Modern orthodontic appliances are comfortable, stylish, and available in a variety of styles, materials, and colors.
Brady Orthodontics offers a variety of orthodontic appliances to teens in need of corrective treatment. Fixed and removable options are available depending on the individual case. These options include:
Chicagoland Orthodontics for Adults
Many adults are now choosing to seek orthodontic care later in life. In fact, about 1 in 5 current orthodontic patients is over the age of 21! Modern orthodontics offers multiple discreet but effective ways to straighten adult smiles, including clear braces and clear aligner systems like Invisalign.
Some of the most common issues we see in adult patients contemplating orthodontic treatment are:
- a bad bite (malocclusion) causing the teeth to fit together incorrectly
- the teeth are too crowded, or spaced too far apart
- any abnormal jaw pain, or pressure that is caused by crooked teeth
Seeking orthodontic treatment as an adult can help your confidence and success soar. But improving your dental health can have a positive impact on your overall health and that’s more important in the long run.
