Orthodontics Jacksonville AL
The Doctors at Designer Smiles are experts in the field of Orthodontics and they are here to guide you to your dream smile. Each Smile is unique, and at Designer Smiles we have a variety of treatments to meet all of our patient’s needs.
Jacksonville AL Braces
Traditional braces are one of the most efficient and effective orthodontic tools in use. First, we attach the metal or ceramic brackets to your teeth. Then we connect the brackets with wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. Through regular adjustments with Dr.Benton these parts work together to apply gentle pressure, gradually moving the teeth where we want them to go.
Jacksonville braces are a superb choice for fixing many tooth issues, both simple and complex. Because they sometimes work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other options, overall treatment time with braces may be shorter. Since braces don’t require some more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can. Jacksonville braces are a cost-effective orthodontic option for patients on a budget.
Jacksonville AL Invisalign
Instead of brackets and bands, the Jacksonvile Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to slowly but consistently move the teeth into alignment. This option is popular with both patients and orthodontists and is the top alternative to traditional braces.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and designed to fit snugly over the patient’s teeth. The trays are virtually invisible, and patients switch them out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series. You’ll wear your aligners 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment for them to do their job. Patients who neglect to wear the aligners as directed can harm the results and make your treatment process longer.
Jacksonville AL Braces and Invisalign: find the right treatment for your smile
Our skilled doctors and staff excel at providing customized treatment plans for each patient we see. When you visit our office for a free consultation, we’ll create your treatment plan based on your tooth shape, lip movement, and face shape. Using these as the basis for treatment will ensure a beautifully aligned smile that’s just right for your face!
The Drs. Benton are orthodontists. Orthodontists are dentists first.
Out of 100 dental school graduates, on average, only six go on to become orthodontists.
To practice orthodontics, the Drs. Benton spent 11 years in training (four years of college, four years of dental school, and three years of orthodontics residency).
The orthodontic student spends three years learning the skills needed to manage tooth movement and to guide facial development.
From the moment you contact our office to your final retainer check appointment, our goal at Designer Smiles by Benton is your complete satisfaction. Dr. Benton will review your photos and X-rays to find the best way to treat your individual needs.
Then you’ll choose the type of braces you want—traditional metal, clear ceramic, or Invisalign.
Our goal at Designer Smiles by Benton is not just to give you the smile of your dreams. We want you to leave our office after every appointment knowing that you got the best possible care.
Gone are the days of painful headgear, clunky bands on every tooth, and overly tight stainless steel wires. Today's orthodontic treatment is much more comfortable than it used to be. This is because of shape-memory NiTi wires.
With the same technology that NASA uses, NiTi wires exert a continuous force against the teeth to move them in the right direction. This gets rid of the need for wire tightening. This means you spend less time in braces, and the time you do spend is more comfortable.
At Designer Smiles by Benton we take pride in making the process of straightening your teeth as comfortable as possible.
The Drs. Benton are up-to-date on the latest in orthodontic treatment and braces technology.
Designer Smiles by Benton is the central location for modern orthodontic treatment. We also offer aesthetic options like ceramic braces and Invisalign.
We also use mini implants and diode laser for faster and more efficient tooth movement and faster treatment times.
Everyone dreams of a medical office that takes pride in flexibility. Yes, we offer flexible appointment scheduling and flexible treatment options, but we also offer flexible payment options.
After we’ve determined your insurance coverage and filed it for you, we'll sit down and come up with a monthly payment plan that fits your budget. You can also get a discount if you pay in full on the front end.
