Braces in Oak Ridge, NC

Don't let misaligned teeth prevent you from feeling confident in your smile or your overall appearance. Instead, visit Olmsted Orthodontics, your local source for children and adult braces. Traditional metal teeth braces are some of the most common and least expensive teeth straightening products available - that's why they're always available at our family-owned office, along with innovative Damon™ system braces.

If you're unsure whether your teeth are eligible for correction with traditional or Damon braces, don't hesitate to meet with a member of our team. We're more than happy to examine your teeth and provide a professional recommendation as to which course of action can best help you secure the smile you want.

Braces in Oak Ridge, NC

Do You or Your Loved Ones Need Teeth Braces?

Are you tired of living with crooked teeth? Perhaps you find yourself avoiding pictures and finding excuses to hide uneven pearly whites. Our dentist believes you don't have to settle for a smile that makes you self-conscious. Create the smile you've always wanted with help from our team. We're happy to install teeth braces for teens and adults interested in enhancing their smiles.

Our solutions consist of teeth braces that offer plenty of perks for individuals struggling with uneven teeth. Most importantly, the majority of dental insurance providers cover the partial or full costs of the treatment; this is a boon for many families since many providers do not cover the cost of other types of braces, such as clear or lingual braces. Metal braces are effective in treating a number of dental problems, including:

Correct Severe Overbites with Children’s & Adult Braces

Additionally, traditional adult braces and children's braces can help to correct a number of other orthodontic problems, such as crooked, misaligned, and overcrowded teeth. That isn't all adult and children's braces are used to treat. Orthodontists commonly use braces to fix bite and chewing issues, as well as jaw pain.

When you begin to wear braces on your teeth, you will need to visit our orthodontist regularly to allow our team to tighten the wires and encourage movement. All patients will feel some discomfort when the wires are tightened at first; however, this discomfort will soon go away.

Learn About Traditional Metal Braces

Though they've been around for quite a while, traditional metal braces are anything but outdated. In fact, they're considered one of the most effective and affordable methods for straightening teeth. The fact is that metal braces remain the go-to teeth-straightening devices of choice for many families throughout our service areas.

Traditional braces usually consist of stainless steel. They're composed of square-shaped brackets and wires which, when fitted over crooked teeth, are bonded to the teeth until the treatment is complete. Most adults and children require these kinds of braces for two to three years. In some instances, the treatment can be done in as little as one year. The wires, or ties, act as anchors that gently pull the teeth into the proper positions, eventually creating a beautiful, even row of pearly whites.

We Offer Innovative Damon System Braces

In addition to traditional braces, our dentists offer braces that require much less regular maintenance. Perhaps you don't have the time or energy to visit our office for essential braces adjustments. If this describes you, talk to our oral health specialists to learn whether our Damon system braces are right for your lifestyle.

This system is an innovation in the orthodontic industry. It uses an entirely new way to treat patients from the more traditional metal braces. Rather than using palatal expanders and/or removing healthy teeth, this system combines the effectiveness of teeth braces; however, these are self-ligating and, therefore, eliminate the need for elastic or metal ties.

Our Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the wires in place. The elimination of the traditional ties allows the teeth to move more freely and comfortably. In the end, you or your child will obtain beautiful, straight teeth faster than ever before.
