Quad City Orthodontics is proud to offer a variety of treatment options to find a custom fit for each patient!
It is our goal to give you a smile that you can be proud to show off. We are proud to offer many different treatment options so that you can get straighter teeth and a nicer looking smile. We are dedicated to showing you all of our options and discussing them thoroughly with you. We want you to find the best treatment option for you, no matter what you choose.
To give you straighter teeth and a more perfect smile, we to offer the following services:
We use braces to treat many orthodontic irregularities such as overcrowded teeth, malocclusions (bad bites), and much more. We also work to relieve the jaw pain of those who suffer from TMD. Most often we use the traditional metal and wire braces. They are also known as fixed “train track” braces.
The Damon® System employs a unique treatment philosophy that goes beyond straight teeth to create broad beautiful smiles. We take into account each patients’ face, profile and other factors, anticipating what patients will look like in their 40’s, 50’s and beyond. The days of having braces tightened are over. The Damon® System uses tie-less brackets that reduce the pressure on your teeth, allowing them to move more comfortably to their correct positions. This innovative approach to orthodontics ensures greater comfort throughout treatment.
The results are often better than if we wait, and require less work. We may not need to keep braces on your child, as long when they are younger, which means less expense for you.
A set of clear aligners is the newest form of braces. The aligners are invisible and removable, making them very popular. The system uses clear, acrylic trays that straighten teeth similar to braces, but are less noticeable.
No matter your age, you deserve a smile of which you are proud. You might not realize that we can fix
your tooth alignment no matter what your age is. Braces are not just for children anymore. We can get you the smile you deserve!
After you have worn your braces for the appropriate amount of time, we move into the retention stage of your treatment. It is very important not to skip this step or all of your hard work will not pay off as you had hoped. Your teeth may move back instead of staying in place. During retention, you will have to wear retainers as your teeth adjust to staying in their new place without braces.
