Your orthodontic options include:

  • Traditional metal braces
  • Clear ceramic braces
  • Invisalign

We also offer retainers or brackets that can help young children avoid extensive orthodontic treatments in the future, as well as space maintainers that proactively allow their permanent teeth to come in properly.

In a free consultation, Dr. Mark Van Buskirk or Dr. Michael Krischke will help you determine which solution best fits your needs. To book your consultation, call Van Buskirk & Krischke DDS, LLC at 219-641-3422.

Braces Can Solve Many Orthodontic Problems

Traditional metal braces are the most common form of orthodontic treatment, and for good reason. They can solve the broadest range of problems, from minor cosmetic issues to severely misaligned bites. Unlike some other teeth straightening options, they are appropriate for all ages. They are also more affordable than some other options. And if you want your braces that reflect your personality, you can customize them with different colors for brackets and/or elastic ties.

Braces are also more comfortable and effective than you may remember thanks to advancements like:

  • Smaller brackets and wires
  • Metals that last longer and require fewer adjustments

You Have Less Obvious Orthodontics Options

If you’d prefer an orthodontic option less conspicuous than traditional metal braces, we offer two choices. Chances are, no one will even know you are wearing them!

  • Invisalign, which uses a series of clear plastic aligners instead of wires and metal to shift your teeth into the proper position.
  • Clear ceramic braces, which straighten teeth like traditional braces but are made of clear materials so they blend in seamlessly with your smile.

No matter which option you choose, Van Buskirk & Krischke DDS, LLC in Crown Point, IN provides both fixed and removable retainers after your treatment to ensure your smile remains straight and beautiful.
