Gain a Straighter Smile Through Orthodontic Care

Orthodontics is a field of dentistry that focuses on improving the alignment irregularities of the teeth and jaw. With our quality alignment services, your new smile can also enhance the appearance of your face and dental structure. Dr. Nils Sandstrom and our team provide select orthodontics in Palos Heights, Illinois, to help our patients achieve more confidence with a healthy, functional smile.

With an improper bite or smile alignment, you may experience jaw pain or dental attrition. A misaligned smile can also be more difficult to clean and maintain, which can result in the development of decay, gum disease and eventually, tooth loss. Other orthodontic issues can create insufficient chewing function and increased stress on your teeth’s supporting gum tissues and bones. As a result of this added stress, you may have headaches or jaw issues, such as TMD.

With orthodontics, those with crooked, crowded or gapped teeth can renew their smile’s appearance and function. Even those with an underbite, overbite, open bite or crossbite can have a flawless and straight smile with the effects of advanced alignment services. Patients who complete their orthodontic care can also gain a boost in self-confidence and sociability.

If you are interested in achieving a bright, healthy and straight smile, please contact us and arrange a consultation with our dentist. For those whose smile requires more care than our resources and skills can provide, we will refer you to a trusted specialist. So, please call 708-388-2500 today to learn more about orthodontics and schedule your appointment.
