Quality Orthodontic Care in Bloomington, IL

Our doctors and highly trained team of orthodontic specialists have years of experience helping patients in the Bloomington & Lincoln areas achieve beautiful smiles, and we strive to design specialized treatment plans that perfectly suit our patients' unique orthodontic needs. While we see patients both young and old, the most common time for orthodontic treatment is during adolescence - and there's good reason for that.

Helping Teens Achieve Healthy Smiles

Generally, we'll start orthodontic treatment between the ages of 9 and 14. There are a number of reasons that make this a great time to start - for one, all of the baby teeth will have fallen out by this age, and most permanent teeth will have already erupted. Additionally, teens have a naturally high metabolism, allowing us to take advantage of the growth spurts they experience to help aid tooth movement and speed up treatment time. Finally, adolescent treatment is so common that it's become something of a rite of passage for teens. In fact, many teenagers tell us they want braces just so they can fit in with their friends!

We offer a wide range of treatments and procedures to meet a diverse array of patient needs. While traditional metal braces are still the most popular form of treatments, we also offer discreet options like clear braces or exciting treatment alternatives like Invisalign. No matter what your situation, we'll work with you to select the best treatment and design a comprehensive plan that will help you achieve a beautiful smile that'll last the rest of your life.
