About Orthodontic Braces
Traditional orthodontics are one of the most effective techniques to align teeth and prevent oral health troubles that can be caused by nonaligned teeth. Braces can help every patient get their teeth, lips, and jaw in proper alignment to prevent tooth decay, chronic pain, periodontal disease, trouble chewing, speech problems, and more. Orthodontic treatment can also modify teeth that are crowded, protruding, or improperly spaced, as well as cross bites, underbites, overbites, and jaw pain. While orthodontic braces are often associated with children and teens, orthodontic braces by our dentists at DentalWorks - Chicago Loop in Chicago, IL can help patients of all ages get a healthier, more attractive smile.

"My Experience here is great. Above that I’m a new patient. My original dentist is no longer available so I went looking for a new one close to work where I won’t have to leave work early and lose pay. The staff is amazing and beyond helpful and very forward on what is needed for me to take care of myself.UPDATE - I don’t publish feedback unless I mean it. So here it goes. They are still the best! 💪 ❤️ I was out for a year traveling for work and by keeping up with my health and using the necessary tools to stay healthy; as suggested, I was happy to come back for my check up and cleaning. The staff, as always, is Fabulous and the communication with patients is top notch! I recommend anyone who wants a new dentist! I literally now look forward to the dentist... and not many people say that!"- G.H. / Google / Nov 23, 2019

What to Expect
Traditional orthodontics for patients are personalized based on the patient's concerns and needs. The length of treatment will depend on the complexity of the case, but younger patients may take a shorter time and the patient will often prevent other mouth troubles. The metal braces are tiny brackets that are fastened to each tooth that are then threaded with wires that gently, but consistently push the teeth into their proper position. Patients should come back to DentalWorks - Chicago Loop in Chicago, IL to have their traditional orthodontics and mouth checked every month by our dentists at DentalWorks - Chicago Loop until they are ready to be removed. While wearing braces, patients may find it difficult to brush and floss their teeth, but it is crucial to follow a regular home care regimen and keep the teeth healthy and strong during the orthodontic treatment.
After the orthodontics are removed, the patient will generally be provided with a retainer to wear that will stop the teeth from shifting back to their previous position. A retainer can be bonded to the back of the teeth or made as a removable mouth piece depending on the patient's needs and lifestyle. Patients should continue a good home mouth care routine, including regular flossing and brushing, and visiting our dentists at DentalWorks - Chicago Loop for professional cleanings and dental examinations.
Dental insurance usually covers some of the cost of traditional braces, but this varies based on the kind of treatment and the patient's coverage. DentalWorks - Chicago Loop in Chicago, IL will coordinate with every patient's insurance company to determine the benefits and out-of-pocket bill. DentalWorks - Chicago Loop takes several types of payment and offers financing plans for our patients to make traditional orthodontics affordable.
