Skokie Orthodontist Speaks on Craniofacial Orthodontics at French University

Dr. StosichSKOKIE, IL-Practicing orthodontists are usually thought of as doctors who straighten teeth with appliances or braces. But Dr. Michael Stosich of iDentity Orthodontics does so much more.

He recently traveled to France and spoke to the pediatric surgeons and residents at the University of Dijon on craniofacial orthodontics, as well as cell-based therapies.

He talked about his treatment philosophy, methods of treatment, diagnosis and stem cell-based reconstruction research.

One Size Does Not Fit All: Patients Know!

One Size Does Not Fit All Patients

ROUND LAKE, IL-Traditional braces are usually discussed when a patient needs orthodontic care. In recent years, however, some orthodontists have encouraged the advantages of self-ligating braces, such as Damon braces.

According to the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, self-ligating braces remain very similar to traditional braces following an extended clinical trial (American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, 2013).

Nine Essential Food Guidelines For Orthodontic Patients

Nine Essential Food Guidelines For Orthodontic Patients

WILMETTE, Ill.– Your appetite doesn’t change when you receive braces or Invisalign, but your diet should. Most sticky, chewy and crunchy foods must be avoided during treatment. At iDentity Orthodontics, we understand adjusting your food choices to accommodate treatment can be challenging.

“You could say the dietary changes that come along with braces is the downside of orthodontics, but there doesn’t have to be a drastic change,” says Wilmette area orthodontist Dr. Michael Stosich. “By making a few simple tweaks, patients can still enjoy the foods they love and actually help facilitate their treatment.”

How Orthodontics Helps Prevent Gum Disease

Periodontal gum disease

GRAYSLAKE, Ill.- Orthodontics can benefit many aspects of your smile, including periodontal health. Despite this fact, gums and orthodontic treatment seem to have a love/hate relationship.

A brief period in braces or Invisalign leaves patients more susceptible to gingivitis, yet the treatment’s outcome of aligned teeth reduces the likelihood of acquiring periodontal disease in the future.

Dr. Stosich Shares Cover, Talks Tooth Movement in Orthodontic Practice US

Orthodontic Treatment

KENILWORTH, ILLINOIS- Check out the latest issue of Orthodontic Practice US and you’ll see a familiar name on the cover. Dr. Michael Stosich lent his expertise in tooth movement to the magazine by writing an article for the November/December 2013 issue.

“Orthodontic Practice US asked me to write a piece discussing the biology of the jaw bone as teeth shift during orthodontic treatment,” says Wilmette area orthodontist Dr. Stosich. “They’re a well-respected publication for professionals in my field, so I was happy to contribute.”

From Science Fiction to Science – 3D Printing Could Change Complicated Orthodontic Cases

Orthodontics 3D Technology

GRAYSLAKE, ILLINOIS – The power of 3D technology is becoming more widely used in orthodontic circles for fabricating appliances such as aligners and retainers.

But Grayslake and Skokie orthodontist Dr. Michael Stosich sees a day on the horizon when 3D printers will do far more for serious craniofacial orthodontic cases and patients stricken with cancers in the oral cavity.

Orthodontic Treatment Can Help Prevent Tooth Trauma

Overjet In ChildrenPrevent Tooth Trauma

Dr. Michael Stosich, a Kenilworth orthodontist warns parents to correct overjet in children to prevent trauma.GRAYSLAKE AND KENILWORTH, ILLINOIS – Our desire here at iDentity Orthodontics is for every child to have a healthy, beautiful smile composed of beautifully aligned teeth and a proper bite that promotes lifetime oral health.

If your child has significant overjet that goes uncorrected, a 2013 study shows – again – the likelihood of this being the case is slim without interceptive orthodontic treatment.

Overjet is the term used to describe the condition where the front teeth in the upper jaw advance well in front of the lower jaw’s front teeth, says Dr. Michael Stosich, a Grayslake and Kenilworth orthodontist. You probably have heard people use the term “buck teeth,” which is a common way of referring to overjet.
