id clear aligners

iD Clear Aligners by SureSmile provide the most precise way to move teeth using clear aligners. Designed and patented by Dr. Spector, these require fewer aligner sets than Invisalign, and because of their efficiency, they require fewer office visits, as well.

Orthodontic Treatment for Children

Beginning a relationship with an orthodontist at the right time is crucial for children’s developing smiles. The American Academy of Orthodontists recommends that children visit an orthodontist for the first time at the age of seven. Ther allows the orthodontist to see how the smile is taking shape, and then if treatment is needed, it can begin at the time it will have the most impact.


Orthodontic Treatment for Teens

Dr. Spector knows the teen years can be rough, which is why he works hard to provide cutting edge treatment options that even teens will love. With options like iD clear aligners and Invisalign, teens don’t have to worry about sticking out during some of the most crucial years.

iDentity Orthodontics provide Retainers for Waukegan Patients

Retainers are a very important part of your orthodontic treatment. They work to do exactly what their name implies – retain your teeth in their new locations. Dr. Spector offers removable and fixed retainers for her patients in Waukegan.

Removable retainers

Removable retainers can be either a Hawley retainer – a metal wire that goes over the teeth to hold them in place and a plastic piece that sits on the palate, or an Essix retainer – a clear and removable retainer that looks like a clear aligner.

Bonded or fixed retainers

Fixed retainers are bonded directly to the teeth and are used in patients who have a high 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!

Waukegan Braces Orthodontic Emergency Info

During the course of your treatment, you may encounter some minor inconveniences. True emergencies are very rare, but some of the most common issues that may arise can be taken care of at home until your next scheduled appointment.

  • Orthodontic treatment is not without a bit of discomfort, so if you experience pain or soreness after your braces are placed or after an adjustment, you can take an over-the-counter pain reliever to help. Warm saltwater rinses can also provide relief. Use orthodontic wax to cover any areas that irritate the inside of your mouth.
  • If a bracket should come loose, don’t worry – it can be bonded back into place at your next visit. If it bothers you, you can use a bit of orthodontic wax to hold the bracket in place.
  • If your wire is poking you, you can use a pair of sterilized nail clippers to clip off the offending part of the wire. Then place orthodontic wax over the area.

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