metal braces

Metal Braces

Dr. Spector uses her patented, low-profile metal braces for patients looking for traditional and effective treatment. The brackets are designed to be sleek and the entire system is more comfortable and efficient than other metal braces.

ceramic braces

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are designed to be as efficient as metal braces but are much more discrete. The brackets are tooth-colored or clear and fit in with your natural smile.

lingual braces

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces offer the highest level of discretion. These braces fit on the tongue or lingual side of your teeth. They are hidden from view so others won’t even know you have braces.

id clear aligners

Clear Aligners

Dr. Spector is also proud to offer her iD Clear Aligners by SureSmile. They are the most efficient clear aligner option available. They are also more effective, requiring fewer aligner sets and fewer office visits.

invisalign braces


Invisalign was the first brand of aligners introduced. The aligners are clear, comfortable, and removable. The aligners are made from thin, flexible plastic that you wear over your teeth for about 22 hours each day. You replace one aligner with the next every two weeks until all of them have been worn.

At iDentity Orthodontics, we see many patients from the Gurnee area. We provide a free initial consultation and affordable monthly plans with zero financing options.

Providing Orthodontic Care for Kids, Teens and Adults

iDentity Orthodontics is proud to provide high-quality orthodontic care to Gurnee patients of all ages. No matter your age, we can help you achieve the perfect smile you have always wanted.


Orthodontic Treatment for Children

The American Academy of Orthodontists states that children should visit an orthodontist by the age of seven. The orthodontist can see how the smile is taking shape and monitor the growth of the jaw. Then if treatment is needed, it can begin when it will have the most impact.


Orthodontic Treatment for Teens

Teens love the discrete, comfortable, and removable options offered at iDentity Orthodontics. iD Clear Aligners and Invisalign allow for discretion during the sometimes difficult teen years.


Orthodontic Treatment for Adults

Healthy teeth can be moved at any age, so whether you are 12 or 62, you can still discover the power of orthodontics. Call today to learn more about the treatment options available for adult patients in Gurnee.

Retainers Replacement, Checkup and Correction in Gurnee IL by iDentity Orthodontics

Retainers serve an important purpose once your orthodontic treatment is completed. Your retainer will work to hold your teeth in their new locations. Gurnee patients who have completed treatment may receive a removable or fixed retainer.

Removable retainers

Hawley retainers and Essix retainers are the two types of removable retainers. Hawley retainers are made of a plastic piece that sits on the palate and a wire that holds the teeth in place. Essix retainers are similar to clear aligners.

Removable Retainers

Fixed retainers

Fixed retainers are bonded directly to the back of the teeth. They can only be removed by the orthodontist and are used in patients who have a higher indication of relapse.

Your teeth may be feeling unaligned. Or, it could be the retaining wire keeping them in place is too loose. We recommend making an appointment to get your retainers checked!

Orthodontic Emergency Care in Gurnee, IL

Minor inconveniences can occur during your time in treatment, but true emergencies are rare. Some of the most common issues you may encounter are:


  • Pain or discomfort – Unfortunately, moving teeth through bone isn’t without a little bit of discomfort. You can take over-the-counter pain relievers to help. Use warm salt water rinses and warm compresses as needed. Place orthodontic wax over any areas that cause discomfort.
  • Loose brackets – Loose brackets can be bonded back in place at your next visit. Use orthodontic wax to hold the bracket in place until your appointment.
  • Poking wire – Use a sterilized pair of nail clippers to clip a wire that is poking your cheek. Place orthodontic wax over the area to prevent further irritation.

If you experience a true emergency or have any questions, contact iDentity Orthodontics.
