Dr. Najjar obtained his Doctoral of Dental Medicine Degree from Boston University School of Dental Medicine, where he received awards for ‘Excellence in Orthodontics’ and ‘Excellence in Restorative Dentistry’.
Dr. Najjar’s fascination with the biomechanics of Orthodontics and the magic of creating beautiful smiles moved him to pursue Advanced Education in Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics at the Stony Brook University School of Dental Medicine in New York.
Clear aligners are an orthodontic treatment that uses removable alignment trays to straighten teeth. Your dentist will fit you with custom-designed alignment trays that slowly shift your teeth into the desired position. Every few weeks, you will receive a new set of trays until your teeth are perfectly aligned. The trays are barely visible in your mouth – your friends, family and coworkers may not even notice they are there. The smooth plastic surface will not scratch or damage the inside of your mouth and you can remove the trays for eating, cleaning, and special occasions.
Traditional brackets are small brackets that are bonded directly to each tooth and attached with a wire. These traditional brackets and wires are far less noticeable than they used to be! Children and adults of all ages are choosing traditional brackets for their orthodontic needs near 60561.
Clear braces are similar to metal braces but are made of white material and are virtually undetectable! They bond to the front of the tooth and are connected by a wire. These braces are used mostly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. They do require a little more attention, which is why Dr. Anas Najjar in Darien, IL will let you know if they are the right options for you!
