About Rush Orthodontics

Rush Orthodontics provides a comprehensive approach to the care and treatment of orthodontic disorders to improve your dental health and boost your self-esteem. When teeth are properly aligned, they’re easier to keep clean, so it’s easier to prevent cavities and gum disease — and a straight, healthy smile can help you face the world with confidence.

If you or a loved one has crooked or crowded teeth, gaps between teeth, a misaligned bite or any other issue that stands in the way of a confident smile, the Rush Orthodontics team is here to help. These are some of the issues we address and services we offer:

  • Aligning teeth using traditional braces or clear aligners
  • Helping you break habits such as thumb sucking, lip biting, cheek biting or tongue thrusting
  • Covering an opening in the roof of the mouth
  • Creating custom-made mouth guards and night guards to protect teeth from injury
  • Enhancing speech
  • Managing spaces between developing teeth
  • Managing unerupted or impacted teeth
  • Relieving temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) with splints
  • Repositioning jaw bones gradually (dentofacial distraction)
  • Reshaping an infant’s gums, lips and nostrils with nasoalveolar molding before surgery for cleft lip and palate
  • Restricting or enhancing the growth of upper and lower jaws
  • Providing temporary appliances to help protect form and function during extended periods of craniofacial surgery
  • Treating sleep apnea
