East Village Dental Center in West Town Chicago.


An orthodontist specializes in the straightness of the teeth and correcting bites. At East Village Dental Centre, we have all your dental needs under one roof. If a patient has a crooked teeth or an overbite, Dr. Treinkman will most likely refer them to our in house orthodontist. It will then be decided whether braces will be required to help the patient improve their bite or align teeth. If you are considering traditional braces or clear aligners (Invisalign), our in house orthodontist has the training and experience to advise you of all your treatment options.

At East Village Dental Centre, many patients come to us with problems caused by improper bites and crooked teeth. These problems occur as a result of tooth irregularity and/or disproportionate jawlines. With the help of our experienced staff, these problems can be fixed with the two different options we offer:

Traditional Braces
Traditional braces are made up of metal brackets that attached to the teeth, and wires that are threaded through the slots of these brackets. These wires are held together by small rubber bands called “o-rings” or “ligatures.” Over time, these brackets are tightened according to the progress needed to give the straight and beautiful smile that the patient is looking for. The treatment time will depend on the individual patient and their needs.

The Invisalign process uses a series of clear, plastic aligners that effortlessly fit over your top and bottom sets of teeth. They gradually help your teeth move to a more naturally aligned position. This treatment is the perfect solution for those who only need mild changes to the position of their teeth. On average, the total treatment time for your Invisalign braces is about 10-16 months, but our team of experts will give you a better idea once you have your initial consultation. Once you begin wearing your Invisalign braces, you’ll continue to have appointments about every four weeks to make sure that you are on the way to a brighter, straighter smile.

If you believe braces are the extra step of what your smile needs, or you are having trouble due to jaw problems or crooked teeth, call us at East Village Dental Centre and make an appointment today. Our staff of experienced professionals will be happy to answer all questions and go over your options for braces.
