Besides the devastating physical pain of living with dental problems that make it difficult to eat, speak, smile or “smooch”, people living with serious orthodontic issues also suffer from terrible self-image and low self-esteem. Crippled by fear, these people tend to mask their teeth and smile when they laugh, talk or chew.

Orthodontic Options

At the Center for Advanced Dentistry in Nashville, we recommend orthodontic evaluation and treatment when the arch of the teeth is narrow, or when teeth, jaw and face muscles are crowded or crooked. This is also a solution when teeth are missing due to under-development, or previous tooth removal has jeopardized proper occlusion (bite position).

Before using orthodontic treatments to address painful conditions, we feel that a neuromuscular exam will reveal alternative solutions.

Dr. Forbes can offer the following orthodontic treatments:

Invisalign® – This is a removable, metal- and wire-free alternative orthodontic treatment. These “Clear Braces” are a fitted tray customized for each patient that gently realigns teeth and corrects a patient’s bite so that the jaw rests in a more natural, comfortable position.

Full face orthodontics – This approach harnesses your body’s natural growth mechanisms to do more than move your teeth. Using advanced new methods to diagnose and treat the orofacial system, Dr. Forbes can reshape your face, improving the appearance of your profile, the function of your bite, and the clearance in your airway. Thanks to a new understanding of epigenetic potential, this technique can benefit both children and adults.
