Your Winnetka IL orthodontist
Dr. Patrick Brady received his B.S. in Psychology from Davidson College, his Doctor of Dental Medicine from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry and his Masters and Certificate in Orthodontics from the University of Iowa College of Dentistry.
In dental school, he was a Dean’s Scholar and was accepted to both the Delphi Society and Omicron Kappa Upsilon, academic honor societies. Today, he is an ABO certified orthodontist and provides top-quality care to each and every patient. Dr. Brady has presented research at national meetings for both the American Dental Education Association and the American Association of Orthodontists.
Winnetka IL Braces
Traditional braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. The metal or ceramic brackets are attached to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. Through regular adjustments with Dr. Brady, these components work together to apply gentle pressure, which will gradually move the teeth into the desired positions.
Winnetka IL braces are an excellent choice for correcting a number of tooth issues, from simple to complex. Because they sometimes work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other options might, overall treatment time can be slightly reduced. In addition, braces don’t require some of the more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can. This makes Winnetka IL braces a cost-effective orthodontic option for patients on a budget.
Winnetka IL Invisalign
The Winnetka IL Invisalign system uses a series of clear removable aligners rather than brackets and bands to gradually move your teeth into alignment. This option is incredibly popular with both patients and orthodontists and is currently the top alternative to traditional braces.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and designed to fit snugly over your teeth. The trays are virtually invisible and are usually switched out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series. This keeps your teeth moving correctly. Aligners must be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment for them to do their job. Patients who neglect to wear the aligners as directed can have a negative impact on the results and also add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign works best when used to correct many of the most common orthodontic issues. For certain complex cases, Invisalign may not be a viable option. A free consultation with Brady Orthodontics will be able to help determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
