How Round Lake Orthodontist Can Give You a Straighter Smile in Six Months

6 months clear aligners

Round Lake, IL – In today’s world, consumers often want instant results. In a world where almost everything we can imagine is available at the tip of our fingers, the idea of waiting for orthodontic treatment to finish can be frustrating. The good news is, in the hands of the right orthodontist, you may be able to see your treatment finished in no time.

“We live in a fast-paced world, and orthodontic patients are anxious to see their treatment zip by,” says Dr. Stosich, a board certified orthodontist in Round Lake IL. “The good news is that technology has improved, so when we use scientifically backed methods and treatment planning, we can treat patients more efficiently and effectively than ever before. Sometimes, that means patients can be in and out of braces in as little as six months.”

In the orthodontic world, there are often a lot of grand claims. Certain treatments are faster than others, or add-ons can speed up your treatment time. The truth of the matter is, even the most advanced and sophisticated treatment options can’t be efficient at moving your teeth if the hands behind them aren’t well-trained and versed in orthodontic treatment.

Luckily for Dr. Stosich’s patients, he marries cutting edge technology with his advanced skills, allowing patients to enjoy their new smiles in the least amount of time possible.

“It’s important when seeking out treatment that you look carefully at any claims being made,” says Dr. Stosich. “If your provider tells you that using a certain treatment, such as Invisalign, will guarantee you will only be in treatment for six months, investigate that claim. This is important because there is no treatment that is one size fits all, and not every patient will have the same results. Orthodontic treatment should be as individual as the patients seeking it out.”

Dr. Stosich creates exceptional smiles with faster treatment times because of his scientifically backed methods and careful treatment planning. He utilizes 3D computer technology to customize treatment plans for every patient. This careful, scientifically backed planning, paired with his knowledge and experience, allows patients to see shorter treatment times than they may otherwise.

When it comes to the length of time you’ll spend in treatment, one of the main factors determining it will be the skill level of your orthodontist – not the treatment option used. In fact, it’s a good idea to seek out an orthodontist who is skilled in a variety of treatment methods, as well as in treating all types of malocclusions. Some treatment options may not be the ideal method to treat a certain patient’s orthodontic issue, but if that is the only treatment option offered by your provider, you may not end up with the results you had hoped for.

Dr. Stosich is dedicated to providing the most exceptional orthodontic treatment found anywhere in the world. That means pairing cutting edge treatment with careful scientific planning and skill. His years of research and treating patients has allowed him to create precise plans that effectively move teeth in the shortest amount of time possible.
