The Orthodontic Treatments We Offer at our Naperville Office

At Innovative Orthodontic Centers, we’re super tech-savvy and all about providing our patients with the most innovative teeth straightening experiences—with amazing smile results to match. That’s why we offer an expanded Invisalign offering that includes Invisalign, Invisalign Teen, Invisalign expanders, and Invisalign MA for overbite correction.

If braces suit your lifestyle, our Naperville and Shorewood orthodontic team offers Ovation® C self-ligating braces. If the personality quiz revealed you’re a braces person, these self-ligating braces are the cream of the crop. They don’t use elastic or metal ties yet provide the trustedness of braces. You’ll experience a cleaner, more minimal look and greater efficiency. Our self-ligating braces come with SureSmile wires, preprogrammed wires bent robotically to fit Dr. Ibrahim’s or Dr. Gin’s prescription, taking a more direct path to your final smile.

  1. Invisalign: Invisalign clear aligners offer a discreet and comfortable way to straighten teeth using a series of custom-made, nearly invisible aligners. Ideal for adults and teens, these aligners provide the flexibility to enjoy life without the eating restrictions and appearance of traditional braces. In the hands of Top 1% Diamond+ Invisalign doctors like Dr. Ibrahim and Dr. Gin (Hey! We’re also the #1 Orthodontist Invisalign provider in Illinois!), Invisalign can address even complex cases.
  2. Ovation® C Self-Ligating Metal Braces: Combining the efficiency of metal braces with the latest self-ligating technology, Ovation® C custom metal braces provide a highly effective treatment option. These braces feature a low-profile design, which enhances comfort and minimizes the appliance’s visibility.
  3. Ovation® C Self-Ligating Ceramic Braces: These self-ligating custom braces are like the ones above but use ceramic brackets to mimic the color of teeth. They appeal to patients who want a high-tech yet minimal appearance for their braces.
