Problems Caused by Misalignment: Why You Need Orthodontic Care

Malocclusion is both a cosmetic problem and a dental wellness issue. It can negatively affect your diet, your looks, and even the way you feel about yourself. If you have been suffering with crooked teeth, our dentists, Drs. Joseph Sutton, David Sutton, and Hanna Yi, can coordinate with orthodontists to help you.

Cosmetic Concerns

Crooked teeth, jaw misalignment, and spacing issues can all detract from an otherwise beautiful smile. For people whose careers involve a lot of public interaction, it is especially important to have an even smile.

Dental Health Problems

When your teeth are not properly aligned, it can make eating certain foods difficult, and can eventually lead to TMJ disorder. Crooked teeth are also more difficult to brush and floss, which can lead to cavities.

Low Self-Esteem

If you don't feel happy about your smile, it can affect your confidence and self-image. Crooked teeth can lead to severe self-consciousness while smiling, speaking, and laughing, even around family members and close friends.

Our Orthodontic Treatment Options: Traditional Braces and ClearCorrect

We offer two primary orthodontic treatments to help improve the alignment of your smile: traditional braces and ClearCorrect invisible orthodontics.

Traditional Braces

Traditional braces apply controlled tension using brackets, wires, and bands. Over time, this tension improves dental alignment, making your smile healthier and more attractive. We coordinate with the area's best orthodontists to help patients achieve outstanding results.

Ask Us About Braces


ClearCorrect is a modern alternative to braces. Rather than brackets and wires, patients wear clear plastic aligner trays. These aligners are practically invisible and are custom-crafted to gradually improve tooth alignment. Because they are removable, you can eat any foods you choose, and you can brush and floss as usual throughout treatment.

Combining Orthodontic Treatments The Best of Both Worlds

While braces are often recommended for severe misalignment and clear aligners are often used to fine-tune minor concerns, certain patients can benefit from both. If you have severe dental misalignment but are put off by the idea of wearing braces for your entire treatment, our Newport, TN, dentists can start you off with braces and then switch you to ClearCorrect to finish out your treatment.

Your Orthodontic Timeline Depends on Your Concerns

Your orthodontic solution can take months or years to straighten your teeth to the degree that you want, but the results are well worth it. Here's what you can expect based on your concerns:
For the most effective treatment, wear your aligners for 20-22 hours each day or visit your orthodontist routinely to tighten your braces.
For the most effective treatment, wear your aligners for 20-22 hours each day or visit your orthodontist routinely to tighten your braces.

Minor Misalignment

Minor cosmetic concerns like slight tooth gaps and a single misaligned tooth can often be corrected in about six months using ClearCorrect or braces, though the timeline will depend on patient compliance.

Moderate Misalignment

Cases of moderate misalignment can take an average of 12-18 months to correct.

Severe Misalignment

Complex cases of dental misalignment will require braces and can take three years or more to correct. If this timeline seems intimidating, keep in mind that our dentistry office can switch you to ClearCorrect aligners after the heavy lifting with braces is complete.

Orthodontics for All Ages

Although orthodontic treatment is often associated with young patients, the truth is that it's never too late to achieve a straighter and healthier smile. Our dentists work with the area's best orthodontists to help any patient suffering from malocclusion experience the benefits of a properly aligned bite:

Adult Orthodontics

Adults who have suffered from malocclusion their entire lives may be candidates for braces or ClearCorrect. While adults often prefer the discreet and simplified nature of the ClearCorrect system, our team can accommodate more complex cases with traditional orthodontics and the help of an area orthodontist.

Orthodontics for Adolescents

Treating dental misalignment in young adulthood can set the stage for a lifetime of excellent oral health and confident smiles. We can tailor a custom treatment plan using either ClearCorrect or traditional braces to benefit your child.

Maintaining Your Results Into the Future

You've finished your orthodontic treatment and you're thrilled with the results. So how can you maintain them? 

Wearing a retainer can keep your straightened smile in place. Our dentists may recommend wearing a retainer or your final set of aligner trays full-time for a few months, and then every night indefinitely. Be sure to follow your dentist's instructions to maintain your newly-aligned smile. Without proper maintenance, your teeth can shift back into their old misaligned positions.

Developing a Treatment Plan

Once we've assessed the health of your smile and listened to your needs, we can develop a custom treatment plan. We will explain what your orthodontic treatment will involve as well as all risks and benefits.

The Cost of Orthodontic Care

During your consultation, we'll also explain the cost of your care and give you an estimate. Though the price is different for everyone, traditional metal braces can cost $3,000 to $7,000 and ClearCorrect can cost anywhere from $4,000 to $5,500.
