Parris Orthodontics is a professional dental office offering high-quality orthodontic work. We work with adolescent and adult patients in Germantown TN and surrounding areas. Our services include braces, after-braces retention, Orthognathic surgery, and Craniofacial Anomalies.
We use three types of braces- traditional metal, clear, and Invisalign. We use either metal or clear braces on both children and adults, and only adults are eligible for Invisalign
Traditional metal braces are the most popular type. They are the least expensive and most durable. They typically move teeth in the shortest amount of time as well.
Invisalign allows you to get a straight smile discreetly. Limited to adults, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to move your teeth to their desired positions. They are convenient, as you are able to remove your aligner in order to eat, drink, or brush your teeth.
Clear braces are another discreet way to get a straight, beautiful smile. Using ceramic brackets, they are not as noticeable as metal braces. With clear braces, you do have to be a bit more careful, as they can sometimes become discolored and aren’t quite as strong as metal braces.
The retention phase of your dental treatment starts as soon as your orthodontist removes your braces. It can last anywhere from six to nine months. In this time, you be required to wear a retainer, as your teeth will be most vulnerable to shifting out of their desired positions.
We work with children with a variety of Craniofacial Anomalies, including but not limited to cleft lip palate, Crouzon Syndrome, and Apert Syndrome. We work closely with dedicated specialists to fix such conditions.
We offer Orthognathic Surgery, or corrective jaw surgery. This type of surgery treats and corrects abnormalities of the facial bones, mainly the jaws and teeth. It can improve the overall appearance of your facial profile, as well as correct difficulties with sleeping, talking, chewing, and more.
