Kenilworth, IL – Our world is full of new and exciting technologies, and we see these technologies advancing on an almost daily basis. Technology can improve our lives in many ways and can help us streamline our lives. However, some orthodontic offices may offer hyped up claims about AI technology and computer monitoring being able to provide superior treatment. Dr. Michael Stosich warns us not to get caught up in these claims.

Kenilworth, ILDr. Michael Stosich of iDentity Orthodontics is a board-certified orthodontist who has treated patients of all ages, and with all types of malocclusions. It is not uncommon to treat a patient who has either an extra tooth (or teeth) or who is missing teeth. But in the hands of a skilled orthodontist, missing or extra teeth are not an issue on the road to a beautiful smile.

Temporary Anchorage Devices

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.
