Absolutely! Regular checkups are an important part of the equation to maintaining healthy structures. Continue to visit your dentist for regular checkups to prevent or detect decay and to monitor your overall dental health. Periodic professional cleanings by your dentist or dental hygienist are also important towards your overall dental health and for preventing dental disease.

Frequently asked questions

We understand your busy schedule and concerns about missing school or work. We make every effort to schedule your appointment so that each patient receives a fair amount of afternoon appointments, in an attempt to minimize morning appointments. Excuses can be provided when needed.

When will my appointments be scheduled?

Orthodontic emergencies are rare, but if you do have one, we make every effort to respond quickly. Emergency care is provided at all times. We're the only full-time orthodontic office in Greeneville, and we are here whenever you need us.

What happens if I have a problem with my braces after hours?

Studies have repeatedly shown that the mouth and face are focal points of communication and social interaction. Your appearance is related to interpersonal popularity, social behavior, self-expectation, personality, and self-image. There's little doubt that the feeling of an attractive face and smile improves your life in many dimensions. All these factors are considered by your orthodontist in planning your individual treatment.

How does orthodontic care improve self-image?

Frequently our adult patients are being treated for issues that were never corrected during their childhood. These individuals realize how important the health of their mouth is, and the attractiveness of their smiles and appearance often results in positive changes in all facets of life.

Why do people choose to have braces during adulthood?

While many of our patients are referred to us by their family dentist, an increasing number of our patients come to us through word-of-mouth referrals from others who have benefited from orthodontics. We always appreciate and welcome the recommendation from friends and patients. In all cases, we carefully communicate and coordinate care with your family dentist to ensure you receive the absolute best in comprehensive treatments.
