frequently asked questions

What is the age range of patients that Orthodontic Experts of Waukegan treats?

At Orthodontic Experts of Waukegan, we treat patients of all ages. In fact, we believe that orthodontic treatment is beneficial for individuals at any stage of life. We specialize in a variety of orthodontic treatments, including Traditional Braces, Clear Aligners, and more. Our experienced orthodontists have treated children as young as 7 years old and adults in their 70s!

Can Clear Aligners damage gums?

Clear Aligners are a popular option for orthodontic treatment, and many patients wonder if they can cause gum damage. The good news is that Clear Aligners are designed to fit snugly against your teeth and gums, and they should not cause any harm. However, it’s essential to practice good oral hygiene during your aligner treatment to prevent any potential gum issues.

Do teeth move more at night during braces treatment?

Teeth are constantly moving throughout the day and night, regardless of whether you’re wearing braces or not. However, some people may experience more significant movements at night, which is why it’s crucial to wear your retainer as prescribed by our Waukegan orthodontists. Our orthodontists will provide you with personalized instructions to ensure that your teeth move correctly throughout the day and night.

Will getting Clear Aligners from Orthodontic Experts of Waukegan damage my dental fillings?

If you have dental fillings, you may wonder if Clear Aligners can cause any damage. Fortunately, Clear Aligners should not harm any existing dental fillings. If you’re concerned about your fillings, our orthodontists will examine your teeth and provide personalized advice to ensure that you receive the best treatment possible.

Do braces affect my lips?

While braces may take some getting used to, they should not significantly affect your lips or other facial features. However, some patients may experience slight lip or cheek irritation in the first few weeks of wearing braces, which can be alleviated with orthodontic wax or other preventative measures.

What happens if I don't get my braces adjusted on time?

If you miss a scheduled appointment or don’t get your braces adjusted on time, it can delay your progress and potentially prolong your treatment period. It’s important to stay on top of your orthodontic appointments and communicate with our Waukegan orthodontists if any issues arise.
