Investigating the Breast-Feeding & Orthodontic Connection

breast feeding

GRAYSLAKE, SKOKIE AND KENILWORTH, IL – If you were to think breast-feeding and orthodontics have about as much in common as auto mechanics and gardening, you would be wrong.

The February 2013 issue of the Journal of the American Dental Association included an article about the oral and general health benefits of breast-feeding, and the results are quite interesting to family orthodontists throughout the country.

Four Orthodontic Problems Best Corrected Early

Four Orthodontic Problems Best Corrected Early

GRAYSLAKE, ILLINOIS – As a parent, you want what’s best for your child. That includes a healthy and beautiful smile.
Dr. Michael Stosich says there are four orthodontic problems that are most easily corrected at a young age, making it easier (and sometimes cheaper) for you to give your child that confident, healthy smile:

  • Protruding teeth
  • Crossbites
  • Poorly developed jaws
  • Severe crowding

Early orthodontic care can reduce or even eliminate the need for surgery in the future in some cases, such as underbite correction.

Aesthetic Options Keep Orthodontic Treatment on the Down-Low

GRAYSLAKE AND KENILWORTH, ILLINOIS – Aesthetics dominate many decision-making processes in our lives today, including orthodontic treatment.

It may seem silly that anyone would be concerned about how their teeth look while they’re in orthodontic treatment. After all, isn’t the very purpose of orthodontic treatment to correct aesthetic flaws, as well as bite and alignment issues?

Why Orthodontic Treatment Alone May Not Treat Some Diastemas

GRAYSLAKE, ILLINOIS- When we devise a treatment plan for our patients, it’s our goal to offer care that’s tailored to their specific needs. Even though many of our patients seek care for similar orthodontic problems, not every situation- such as diastemas- can be addressed using the same approach.

The Truth About Underbite Correction

Underbite Correction

KENILWORTH AND WILMETTE, ILLINOIS – If you see that your child is suffering from an underbite, call for an orthodontic consultation as soon as possible.

An underbite is a noticeable dental problem, and early intervention is key to correcting the issue without a surgical route. This Class III malocclusion happens when the lower jaw protrudes out over the upper teeth when biting.

The Causes Of Protruding Teeth And How To Fix It


KENILWORTH AND Skokie, ILLINOIS – Protruding teeth can create many problems for you or your child. Correcting them as soon as possible can alleviate difficulties down the road.

Teeth that stick out are more prone to injury and trauma, especially during contact sports. Also, the teeth may wear unevenly, due to their positioning.
