It’s a luxury to be able to get so many things done on the internet. We can deposit checks, have food delivered, and reserve a parking spot. But some things can’t be properly obtained online. One thing you can’t get online is quality orthodontic care. Windy City Orthodontics will explain why to see an orthodontist near you in this blog. Dr. Pakravan and the rest of our team proudly serve the greater Chicago area.
Certified Professional Care
Some options, like mail-order orthodontics, promise you ease and efficiency. You’re exchanging seasoned, practical expertise for convenience and cost. A mail-order plan gives you no access to a Board Certified Professional. The mail-order approach attempts to solve a problem by using an assembly line. At Windy City Orthodontics, you get attention from a Board Certified Professional orthodontist.
Dr. Pakravan has enough experience to provide you with a specific treatment plan. At Windy City Orthodontics, we establish what your needs are. Then, we implement a treatment plan. With the data, we uncover during your in-office visit and X-rays of your jaw, we can make a customized treatment protocol just for you.
Become Familiar With Your Orthodontist
One problem with a corporately-owned orthodontic office is that you feel like a number. The machinery of that environment doesn’t lend itself well to building relationships. Each time you go in for an appointment, you see someone new. We’ve discovered that many patients feel anxiety in that kind of environment.
Letting a stranger handle your smile can feel daunting, especially if you see someone new every visit. But Dr. Pakravan intends to know every patient’s face. Our entire staff remembers each patient on a “first smile basis.” For that reason, seeing a local orthodontist helps uncomfortable patients feel at ease. We promise you’ll see familiar faces if you consider Windy City Orthodontics as your orthodontist in Chicago.
Find Early Problems
Most people are aware that they need to brush and floss their teeth. However, we recommend in-person visits to detect issues early. Some problems brushing and flossing alone cannot solve. Therefore, another benefit of in-office orthodontics care is early detection. Detecting an apparently small tooth problem today can prevent it from getting out of control tomorrow. Some patients require more in-depth treatment than others. You might be surprised at just how quickly orthodontic problems can get out of control. Fortunately, Windy City Orthodontics is a Chicago-focused office capable of early detection.
Treatment For Moms, Dads, and Kids
Forgive the cliche, but Windy City Orthodontics is a family. But beyond our work family, we also have individual families. We’re moms and dads just like you. So we understand the daily grind of work, school, homework, extracurricular activities, and family time. That’s why we’re proud to serve patients of all ages. That’s right! Our patients range in age from single digits all the way to triple digits! When you book an appointment, you might as well book one for each household member. Because at Windy City Orthodontics, we want to see all the smiles – regardless of their age.
No two smiles are exactly alike. So, the treatment plans we design will be different. Either Dr. Pakravan will determine the particulars of your plan. Below, you’ll find a few braces options the doctors might discuss with you.
This is most people’s image when they think of “braces.” They’ve earned something of a stigma over the years, but Windy City Orthodontics intends to change that. Modern metal braces have lighter wires and sleeker brackets. For you, this means less pain and irritation. Our braces are compact and comfortable.
What if you had braces that you could remove whenever you wanted (within Dr. Pakravn’s guidance, of course)? Our team uses clear, lightweight plastic aligners by Invisalign® and Spark™. They offer the wearer much more comfort and convenience than conventional braces. Generally, you’ll wear your aligners for 12-18 months and you’ll use between 36 and 60 sets. We recommend keeping the aligner on for 22 hours a day.
You may also hear clear braces referred to as ceramic, tooth-colored, or aesthetic. This is because they are designed to blend in with the teeth. Clear braces empower you to continue your daily routine without fretting about your appearance. They are more discreet and less obvious than metal braces.
