Kenilworth, IL – Overbites are one of the most common malocclusions affecting the population. In fact, it is estimated that as many as 45% of the population may have some degree of an overbite. Severe overbites may not only make a person self-conscious about their appearance, but can have a negative impact on their daily lives.
Kenilworth, IL– One of the most commonly asked questions when patients get braces is how long will treatment last? Unfortunately, there isn’t an exact answer to that question. But, Dr. Michael Stosich of iDentity Orthodontics regularly treats patients with shorter treatment times and higher comfort levels. How does he do it?
For orthodontic patients with certain malocclusions, braces alone cannot create the ideal bite needed for a healthy and stable smile. Orthodontists use appliances such as headgear and elastics, and in extreme cases even surgery, to ensure patients have properly functioning bites. Temporary anchorage devices are a great tool many orthodontists use instead of headgear or surgery for eligible patients.
If you are one of the many Americans who suffer pain or discomfort in your jaw, head, neck, or ears, you may have a bite issue. Misalignment of your teeth can cause a host of problems, and can lead to even bigger issues if not corrected. A misaligned bite isn’t only uncomfortable, it can cause improper wear of your teeth that can lead to chipping, cracking and breaking.
The technology used in orthodontics advances in a fast paced way, and to ensure the best outcomes, orthodontists need to keep up with it. One way to provide the best in orthodontic treatment is by using 3D treatment planning.
The world of orthodontics has come a long way in recent decades, and advanced technology continues to improve the field. Dr. Michael Stosich has dedicated his career to improving the orthodontic experience for his patients, and his research is often used to advance patient care.
