Our orthodontic treatment for children and adults includes:

  • Incognito™ Appliance System: Features fully customized brackets, archwires and bonding trays for more efficient and effective treatment.
  • Invisalign® clear aligners: Uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners crafted with 3D computer imaging technology.

What Our Patients say about us…

“Dr. Balakrishnan’s practice was a wonderful experience for our family. The staff is outstanding and flexible. The results for both of my teenage boys was great and it only took 18 months. I highly recommend Downers Grove Orthodontics to everyone in search of an excellent orthodontist.”

Julie L.

“I came to Dr. B because my teeth were crowding and became very crooked after I turned 40. Dr. B was honest about my treatment. I had braces on for 1 year and my teeth completely straightened out. Dr. B and her staff were friendly and professional. Now I love my teeth!”
