A Trusted Orthodontist
in Peoria & Metamora

Dr. Greg Long, deeply rooted in the Central Illinois community, embarked on his journey to become an orthodontist with a strong foundation in science and a passion for dental health.

After graduating from Metamora Township High School, Dr. Long pursued his bachelor’s degree at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, followed by his Doctorate of Dental Medicine at Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine.

Dr. Long then honed his expertise in orthodontics by completing his master’s degree and Certificate of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics at the University of Alabama Birmingham. Throughout his academic career, Dr. Long has been recognized for his dedication to excellence and leadership in the field of dentistry and orthodontics.

His commitment to his patients and his craft is evident not only in his educational pursuits but also in his continued involvement in professional organizations and community service.

Peoria & Metamora Braces

Braces in Peoria and Metamora are an excellent choice for correcting complex tooth issues. Since they can sometimes work faster at aligning teeth and closing gaps than other treatments might, overall treatment time may be slightly reduced.

Braces don’t require some of the more complex technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, meaning Peoria and Metamora braces are a cost-effective orthodontic option.

Traditional metal braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. They’re made out of metal or ceramic brackets that are affixed to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics.

These brackets, wires, and bands work together to apply the gentle pressure that will gradually move the teeth into the positions we want them to be in as long as you have regular adjustments with our doctors.

Peoria & Metamora Clarity Clear Aligners

Clarity clear aligners are incredibly popular with both patients and orthodontists in Peoria and Metamora and are the top alternative to traditional braces. Instead of brackets and bands, the Clarity clear aligners system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth.

Clarity clear aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and customized to fit snugly over your teeth. To keep your teeth moving in the direction you want them to, you’ll need to switch your invisible trays out for the next one in the series every one to two weeks as directed by Dr. Long.

The Clarity clear aligners system can only work if the recommended guidelines are followed exactly! Aligners should be worn 20 – 22 hours per day throughout treatment. If patients neglect to wear the aligners as directed, it can impede the results and also add time to the orthodontic process.

Clarity clear aligners are at their most efficient when correcting many of the most common orthodontic issues. For some complex cases, Clarity clear aligners may not be a good option. A free consultation with Dr. Long at Central Illinois Orthodontics in Peoria or Metamora will allow us to determine your eligibility for Clarity clear aligners.
