Braces & Invisalign | Jackson & Charlotte

Your Treatment Options

It’s good news for people in Jackson and Charlotte to find out that dental technology improves all the time — and Dr. B is committed to giving you the most up-to-date treatments available.

You and your family can find the latest braces options at Summit Orthodontics to make your new smile fast and affordable to meet your unique smile goals.

Straighten Your Smile

Orthodontic problems can impact kids, teens, and adults — in fact, it’s rare that anyone’s born with perfect teeth. Malocclusion, or a “bad bite,” can cause problems with chewing, oral hygiene, and speaking — not to mention looks.

A bad bite can be genetic or can be caused by thumb sucking, dental disease, poor dental hygiene, accidents, birth defects, or other medical conditions.

Dr. B pairs cutting-edge tech with the skill of moving teeth. This helps Summit Orthodontics successfully treat many dental issues, like:

  • Gaps between your teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Protruding teeth
  • Impacted teeth

Metal Braces & Other Options

Most patients we treat at Summit Orthodontics choose traditional metal braces to straighten their teeth.

Metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment in Jackson and Charlotte, but you have other options, too.

After your first free consultation exam, Dr. B will talk to you about which treatment would be right for you based on your unique needs and smile goals.

Fixed Appliances Vs. Removable Appliances

At Summit Orthodontics, we believe you should be fully educated when it comes to your treatment. The first step to correcting an orthodontic problem is learning about it.

It’s helpful for patients around Jackson and Charlotte to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances. Dr. B attaches fixed appliances, like braces, to your teeth and won’t take them off until you complete your treatment at Summit Orthodontics.

When Dr. B prescribes a removable appliance like Invisalign’s aligner system, you’ll wear it most of the day but you can take the trays out of your mouth.

Besides the obvious differences, Summit Orthodontics uses Invisalign aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems. Dr. B generally uses fixed appliances for comprehensive and serious treatment.
