Kenilworth, IL – Self-ligating braces have become a more popular orthodontic treatment option recently, thanks in part to the marketing behind them. Makers of these braces claim faster and more comfortable treatment times. But they also make the claim that self-ligating braces can eliminate the need for tooth extractions or the use of palatal expanders.

Dr. Michael Stosich, an orthodontics expert in the Chicago-area, believes these claims are not accurate, however.

Clear Braces

Clear braces are a wonderful option for patients who want the reliability of traditional braces, but in an aesthetically pleasing way. Today’s clear braces are made of high grade polycrystalline ceramic and do not stain easily. But, there are some steps you can take to ensure your clear braces, as well as the clear ligature ties, stay as fresh as possible. Dr. Michael Stosich offers the following tips to keep your clear braces clean and fresh throughout your orthodontic treatment.

Celebrities wear braces

Orthodontic braces can offer many benefits, including a prettier and healthier smile. And they aren’t just for kids and teens. One in five orthodontic patients today is an adult, and braces aren’t just relegated to the everyday people – even celebrities understand the importance of orthodontic treatment.

Braces as Hot New Fashion Accessory

Did you ever think you’d see the day when braces would become the latest fashion trend? There’s good news for all of you currently in orthodontic treatment – that day has arrived!

Models in braces walked the catwalk during last spring’s New York Fashion Week, and graced the cover of a popular fashion magazine. Seventeen-year-old model Kitty Hayes was on the cover of CR Fashion Book, smiling big and proud with her braces and blue ligatures.
