Franklin & Smyrna, TN Orthodontic Services

Orthodontic Specialties

In dentistry terms, an orthodontics handle the diagnosis, positioning of the jaw, and correction of misaligned teeth. We use devices such as braces to correct these issues.  In addition to general dental care, MidTN Dentistry offers orthodontic procedures including braces and clear aligners.

Braces

Traditional braces are constructed to correct the alignment of your teeth using a framework of metal straightening wires and brackets. While braces certainly have cosmetic benefits, they also benefit you by making it easier to care for your teeth. Crooked and misaligned teeth are frequently more difficult to brush and floss effectively. By straightening your teeth, braces make it much easier to maintain oral hygiene.

Clear Aligners

 Clear aligners are orthodontic devices made from transparent materials that adjust your teeth without the “hardware” traditionally associated with braces. In some instances, crooked or misaligned teeth can cause challenges with speech, such as a lisp when speaking. By aligning teeth correctly with Clear Aligners, these types of speech impediments can often be remedied.

What are the Different Kinds of Braces?

Metal Braces

Metal braces are often what we imagine when we think of traditional braces. Modern metal braces however are more compact and less visible while also being much more comfortable than the traditional metal braces of the past. Metal braces continue to remain one of the best ways to straighten and align teeth quickly and effectively.

Ceramic Braces / Clear Braces

Ceramic Braces are often referred to as Clear Braces, Tooth-Colored Braces, or Aesthetic Braces. While they function like traditional braces, ceramic braces are made of a ceramic material and are designed to be less noticeable on your teeth than metal braces. When paired with clear, white, or tooth-colored wires, ceramic braces are a way to straighten your teeth in a less noticeable fashion than traditional braces.

Clear Aligners / Invisalign

In recent years, we’ve seen the emergence of Invisalign and other forms of Clear Aligners. These removable trays are customized and crafted for each individual and are an excellent way to achieve a straighter smile. Since Clear Aligners can be taken out, they make eating, brushing and flossing teeth, and cleaning the aligners much easier. They’re also called invisible aligners because they are entirely transparent and nearly unnoticeable when being worn.

What Ages Are Best for Getting Braces?

Kids

The earlier problems with teeth are discovered, the more easily, affordably, and effectively they can be treated. We recommend that children showing indications of crooked or misaligned teeth as young as 7 years of age begin to plan for and take steps to address these challenges as soon as possible. There are significant benefits to starting an orthodontic journey at a young age, and Dr. Singh is Franklin and Smyrna's finest pediatric orthodontist and able to help you choose the best path for your child's plan.

Teens

While starting braces earlier is always a better option, many times it isn’t until a child reaches the teenage years that the need for braces becomes obvious. The good news is that the braces of today and the options available are vastly superior than those of years past. Today’s teens can choose from ceramic / clear braces or clear aligners to make them much less noticeable, easier to maintain, and also (in the case of Invisalign Aligners) provide the flexibility of being removable. The braces of today can even be a fun experience for you and your teen as you watch their smile and confidence improve with each passing day.

Adult Braces

The best time to get braces is as soon as you’re able to, and for many of us, that isn’t until we’re adults. The great news is that it’s never too late to enjoy the many benefits that come with straighter and properly aligned teeth. Adults today have many options when it comes to braces and clear aligners, and Dr. Singh and the MidTN team will work with you to choose the perfect options to make sure that your orthodontic journey is an experience that truly does make you smile.

What issues can be corrected with Braces?

Overcrowded and Unevenly Spaced Teeth

It isn’t uncommon to have overcrowded teeth or gaps between teeth, and it is the most common problem that braces are used to correct. Braces can help to straighten and space your teeth properly by applying a gentle yet effective pressure to the teeth and moving them into a more aligned position.

Overbites and Underbites

Overbites and Underbites, known as malocclusions, are another common problem that can typically be solved with braces. Dr. Singh can talk you through the process and explain all of the available options. Many patients are surprised to learn how easy and affordable it is to fix their overbite or underbite with braces.

Jaw Misalignment

When teeth do not align correctly, the misaligned or crooked teeth can also cause a misalignment of the jaw. When the jaw doesn’t align correctly while biting or chewing, it can eventually lead to pain or discomfort in the jaw. In some cases, it can cause issues with your temporal mandibular joint (TMJ) - leading to more pain and additional complications. Braces are often the most effective way to fix this kind of jaw misalignment. By correcting the crooked teeth, the jaw can again align correctly, and the pain and discomfort is eliminated.

 

Chewing and Speech Problems

We use our teeth every time we chew food or speak (although hopefully not at the same time). When teeth are crooked and misaligned, it frequently causes difficulties in chewing which can lead to pain or uneven wear on the teeth. It can also cause lisps when speaking or other speech related issues. Both of these issues are able to be with the use of braces. 

Self-Esteem

While this is a complex issue, we can safely say that many people suffer from some degree of self-esteem challenges because of crooked or misaligned teeth. One of the most lasting benefits to braces is the confidence they can give to someone who now has a smile they’re not trying to hide any longer. Dr. Singh and the MidTN team are here to put those lasting smiles on the faces of our patients. Call us today and see how we can help make positive changes in your self-esteem or the self-esteem of your child or teen.

Braces

Traditional braces are constructed to correct the alignment of your teeth using a framework of metal straightening wires and brackets.

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are a removable, discreet orthodontic treatment. They consist of a series of trays that you wear for several weeks at a time. As your teeth gently move into position, you start using the next set of trays.

Dental Bridges

A safe, low-risk way to replace one or more missing teeth. Natural teeth or dental implants can be used as anchors to support the suspended replacement teeth.

Dental Crowns

Decay or trauma can cause loss of tooth structure and can compromise function as well as esthetics. Extensive loss of tooth structure can best be replaced with a restoration that covers your entire tooth as in a crown. This “full coverage” restoration can strengthen your tooth and in the hands of an expert can provide a long-lasting esthetic and functional result.

Orthodontics

Welcome to the home of MidTN Orthodontics, where Dr. Singh and the MidTN team have created thousands of smile transformations. By using the latest innovations in traditional metal braces, ceramic braces, and clear aligners, we are able to offer our patients a variety of ways to achieve the smile they’ve always wanted.

Dental Exams And Check-Ups

There are two parts to your MidTN Dentistry visit – examination and cleaning. Your exam will check for cavities, plaque, and tartar on your teeth.

Dental Implants

Implants are made of titanium and have special coatings that encourage the fusing of human bone. The top of each implant has an internal screw channel so that crowns, bridges, and or dentures can be screwed in place.

Dental Sealants

Sealants are a thin, protective coating that bonds to the surface of your teeth. When properly applied, sealants can help prevent cavities.

Dentures

If you have lost most or all of your teeth, wearing dentures can be a difficult experience. Worrying about loose or painful dentures can be a drain on your patience and your health. Dental Implant supported dentures made by a specialist in Prosthodontics can change your life.

Emergency Services

You never know when a dental emergency will happen. Thankfully, MidTN Dentistry is Nashville’s most trusted Dental Emergency team. We have a team of dental experts to serve you.

Tooth Extractions

While many of us do our best to keep our teeth healthy, sometimes a tooth needs to be taken out to keep you healthy. In these cases, an extraction is necessary.

Fillings

Dental fillings are the most conservative way to restore smaller areas of tooth decay. In a dental expert's hands, these types of restorations can be made to conserve as much of your natural tooth as possible while providing a restoration that is almost indistinguishable from the natural tooth. Both resin and porcelain fillings can be adhesively bonded to your natural tooth to add strength.

Root Canal Therapy

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges.

Teeth Cleaning

At MidTN Dentistry, we believe that getting your teeth cleaned every 6 months keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible.

Teeth Whitening

Let our team help you determine what whitening process is right for you, based on the current color and condition of your teeth.

Veneers

A wafer-thin glass shell that can be bonded to the front of your teeth to mask their shape, color, or size. The highest quality veneers are made individually by hand and are hard to distinguish from natural teeth. veneers can be used to remarkably transform the smile of patients who have worn, chipped, or discolored teeth. Slightly crooked teeth can be straightened as well. Hand-made porcelain veneers are typically very translucent and when bonded to your teeth they are very lifelike.
