Your Lincoln Park orthodontist
Dr. Darran Pakravan graduated with a degree in environmental sciences at Northwestern University before attending the University of Illinois Roscoe Village for his Doctorate of Dental Surgery. He completed one year of hospital dentistry at Evanston-Northwestern Healthcare before completing his Master of Science and specialty training in orthodontics.
The Windy City Orthodontic team and Dr. Pakravan attend many hours of continuing orthodontic education and study topics ranging from orthodontic mechanics and appliances to advances in diagnostic and developmental understanding. We also focus on learning how to manage our practice management better.
Lincoln Park Braces
Traditional braces are one of the most reliably effective. We attach metal or ceramic brackets to your teeth, connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. Through regular adjustments with Dr. Pakravan, these parts work together to apply gentle pressure, which will gradually move the teeth into the desired positions.
Lincoln Park braces are an excellent choice for fixing a lot of simple and complex tooth issues. Because they sometimes work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other options, overall treatment time with braces might be shorter. Since braces don’t require some more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can. These factors that patients on a budget will see Lincoln Park braces as a cost-effective option.
Lincoln Park Spark Aligners
Instead of brackets and bands, the Lincoln Park Spark system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to slowly but consistently move the teeth into alignment. This option is popular with both patients and orthodontists and is the top alternative to traditional braces.
Spark aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and designed to fit snugly over the patient’s teeth. The trays are virtually invisible, and you’ll switch them out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series to keep your teeth moving in the right direction. Aligners have to be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment for them to do their job. Patients who neglect to wear the aligners as directed can hurt the results and also add time to the orthodontic process.
Spark aligners works best when used to correct common mild to moderate orthodontic issues. For certain complex cases, Spark may not be a reasonable option. A free consultation with Windy City Orthodontics will help determine your eligibility for Spark.
