Local Orthodontist in Meridian

Orthodontic treatment is best for patients who require adjustments to the positioning of their teeth or the alignment of their jaw. Teeth positioned improperly or a jaw that is misaligned can cause severe problems for an individual. These issues can compromise the look of your smile, cause considerable discomfort and make it more difficult for you to clean and maintain your teeth. Some problems that may arise due to crooked or misaligned teeth include tooth decay, gum disease, jaw pain or tension headaches.

Not only can orthodontic treatment improve the look of your teeth, but it can also help you prevent and overcome many of the issues mentioned above. These treatments typically involve applying gentle pressure to move the teeth and jaw into a more desirable positioning. There are many types of orthodontic treatments available, and the treatment chosen will typically depend on the needs of the patient. Our dental professionals can help you to determine the kind of orthodontic treatment that is right for you.

McMillan Family Dental offers the following orthodontic treatment options:

  • Traditional Braces: Traditional braces consist of a series of metal bands, wires and brackets that are secured to the front of the teeth. These structures are then tightened to make the needed adjustments. Most braces can be removed after a period of one to two years.



Limited time offer.
For new patients only.
  • Invisalign: An alternative to braces, Invisalign clear aligners are tightly fitted over a patient’s teeth and worn inside the mouth for 20 to 22 hours per day. The aligners are only removed for eating and cleaning purposes. Some of the most notable benefits to using Invisalign treatment are that the patient can eat and drink whatever they want during treatment and their overall convenience.
  • ClearCorrect: Another alternative to traditional braces, ClearCorrect uses clear aligners to gradually shift the position of your teeth to make them straighter. When worn for 20 to 22 hours per day, ClearCorrect offers effective results with the convenience of removable aligners, all while being virtually invisible!
