What To Do When You Are Wearing Braces

Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Elk Grove Village IL

Did you know that after braces are removed anywhere from 30% to 70% of people have unsightly white spots on their teeth that can often be permanent?  Our goal as a preventative office is to help you maximize your chances at an excellent final outcome!

Our office provides Invisalign “invisible braces” orthodontic care in Elk Grove Village, as well as surrounding areas such as Itasca, Mount Prospect, Arlington Heights, Schaumburg, and Wooddale.  We always strive to provide the best outcomes possible for our patients.  One of the most important things a patient can do during treatment with Invisalign or traditional braces is to make sure they have excellent home care.

Brushing two times per day for two minutes, as well as flossing, is the standard care for people without braces.  However, there are several options for people that will help them enhance their oral hygiene.

We base our advice on what will be best for the individual patient.  Below are some of the options we may recommend to you:

  • The use of an electric toothbrush
  • A high fluoride prescription toothpaste
  • A cleaning every 3 months instead of the traditional 6 months
  • Professionally applied fluoride varnish every 6 weeks
  • The use of MI paste, with our without delivery trays
  • A fluoride mouth rinse

These are not the only options available but are typically the most common.  If you are interested in “invisible” braces (Invisalign) or have a child that needs braces, we hope you to visit our Elk Grove Village office so we can help you reach your goals.

Our Clients

Most caring dental staff I’ve ever encountered. Every experience has been extremely professional, from just calling to ask a question to cleanings for my whole family and beyond.

Dr. Homann goes out of his way to make sure you understand each step of the process and are comfortable the whole way. Each member of their team genuinely cares about their patients, and knowing I will have the best care every time I walk in the door makes going to the dentist a whole lot easier. Thank you to all the kind and wonderful staff, you make all the difference.

Dr. Homan is the best dentist I've ever been to. Most of my co-workers go to Dr. Homan and that's how I heard about him.

I needed a lot of work on my teeth and I'm so glad I found such a great dentist. He explains everything to you and also is very upfront on all posibiltys that's can happen to the tooth he works on and also explains what you can expect after the dental work. He's also very friendly and everyone at the office makes you feel comfortable. Karen and Sandra in the front office are wonderful as well. They also have wonderful dental hygienist. My insurance is not in network with Dr. Homan but it's well worth the extra money to still go to the best!

Dr. Homann's practice is very clean and up to date. His practice also has televisions to watch when you are getting your teeth cleaned or any other work done which is awesome!

The chairs are very comfortable and the staff is very polite. Dr. Homann is also a very knowledgeable dentist with the ability to make every patient feel calm and comfortable no matter what the situation. He also has done volunteer work for the homeless donating his time and resources to help the less fortunate, if that doesn't let you know what kind of practice this is I don't know what will. I will definitely be coming back here again!
