All orthodontists are dentists first, even though not every dentist is qualified to be an orthodontist. As orthodontists, Dr. Barry Booth and Dr. Ryan Booth have spent years studying nothing but how and why to move teeth. This includes what to do, how to plan, and how to execute the appropriate treatment plan. All orthodontists, including Dr. Ryan Booth and Dr. Barry Booth, have to continue their formal education for 2 or 3 additional years before receiving their license and certification.
Lockport, IL Braces
If you need to correct simple or complex tooth issues, Lockport, IL braces are a great option. Traditional braces sometimes close gaps and align teeth more quickly than other options might. In addition, braces don’t require some of the more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can. This makes Lockport, IL braces a cost-effective orthodontic option for patients on a budget.
Lockport, IL Invisalign
The Lockport, IL Invisalign system uses clear and removable aligners that will gradually move your teeth into alignment as you move through the series. This option is extremely popular with both patients and orthodontists and is currently the top alternative to traditional braces.
Your Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and designed to fit snugly over your teeth. The virtually invisible trays need to be switched out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series to keep your teeth moving in the right direction. Aligners must be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment in order for them to do their job.

Testimonials from Lockport, IL orthodontist patients
Everyone here is super kind and friendly. I especially appreciate how great they were with the pandemic going on. I spent a little over 2 years with them and I could not be happier with my new smile!! Although I’m happy to be gone, I’ll miss the great staff and awesome customer service. - Samantha
We love Booth Orthodontics and Dr. Booth! My son, Russell has a great straight smile because of his great work! He also fixed my son’s underbite. My son gets his braces off soon and I can’t wait to see his smile without braces. Dr. Booth is the best and he does great work. I would recommend him to my friends. We love him! - Debbie
