There’s no need to be ashamed of a crooked smile. At Renken Dentistry, we want every patient to feel confident in their teeth. That’s why we offer orthodontics, or corrective dentistry, for our patients looking to straighten teeth, fix alignment, and close gaps.

With modern dental technology, straightening your smile doesn’t mean years of uncomfortable metal braces anymore. You can have a beautiful, straight smile without metal brackets and tight wires. At our Springfield, IL dental office we use the most effective and innovative advancements in dentistry in a welcoming and comfortable environment. Throughout the orthodontic treatment, our dental team develops long-term relationships with our orthodontic patients. We celebrate with you when the process is complete!


We are happy to provide Invisalign for our patients. The clear aligner trays are barely visible and much less obtrusive than traditional metal braces. Invisalign is the perfect choice for patients who want to straighten their teeth without the inconvenience of metal braces. While Invisalign should be worn at least 20 hours a day for maximum effectiveness, they are taken out to eat, brush, and floss. This means no food will get stuck behind metal braces, causing stains and tooth decay. It also means you can take off the clear aligner trays for special occasions, such as a wedding. There are no uncomfortable wires to tighten or metal brackets in your mouth. Instead, you will receive a progression of clear aligner trays that move your teeth towards the desired position. The process is usually faster than metal braces as well, and can be completed in about a year.

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles is another orthodontic treatment that shifts and straightens teeth gently and quickly.  As you can tell by the name, Six Month Smiles gets the job done faster! Like traditional braces, Six Month Smiles uses fixed brackets and elastics that remain in place during the treatment process. Much like Invisalign, 6 Month Smiles is highly effective at unobtrusively correcting imperfect teeth. Six Month Smiles uses clear brackets and wires to straighten teeth. This system takes the benefit of traditional braces with the minimal visibility of modern orthodontic treatment.
