Clear Aligners

This system is available to teens with all permanent teeth and adult patients with certain orthodontic bite problems. Clear Aligners are a simple alternative to metal braces. It is a series of clear, custom-made, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth as you wear them, each aligner moving your teeth just a little bit at a time. In most cases, 60% of Clear Aligner treatment visits, in our practice, can be completed in the comfort of your home. Clear Aligners fit you perfectly, so they are more comfortable than regular braces. Because they're removable you can eat whatever you like and clean your teeth normally. Clear Aligners show off your smile so most people won't even know you're wearing them. Ask us if you're a candidate for CLEAR ALIGNERS. TEXT us directly 423-894-6318 or FB MESSAGE us with any questions you may have regarding types of braces.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material. They are most popular with adult patients due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawbacks to ceramic brackets are that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.

Metal Braces

Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.

iBraces™ are as unique as the people who wear them.
iBraces are a new generation of orthodontic braces for teens and adults. They are the only 100% customized orthodontic braces available on the market today. Because no two people are alike, no two sets of iBraces are alike.

iBraces are 100% customized.
Braces are placed behind your teeth so no one will know that you are wearing braces unless you tell them. These unique braces are created using state-of-the-art technology and are 100% customized to the shape of your teeth and to your dental situation. iBraces have the unique prescription that your orthodontist creates for you built-in to ensure you get the results that you want. With iBraces, you get efficient, effective tooth movement and great aesthetics.

Almost anyone can wear iBraces.
iBraces have been used to treat men and women ranging from the age of 13 to 60+. Most people who can be treated with regular braces can be treated with iBraces, but only your orthodontist can tell you if iBraces are the right treatment option for you.
