An Overview of Orthodontics

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry specializing in diagnosing, preventing, and treating dental and facial irregularities. The word “orthodontics” comes from the Greek words “orthos,” meaning straight or correct, and “dontos,” meaning teeth.

Types of Orthodontic Treatment We Offer

At Happy Harpeth, we offer a variety of orthodontic treatments to meet the needs of our patients. We offer traditional braces that use metal brackets and wires to straighten teeth.

We also offer Invisalign clear aligners, which are virtually invisible and can be removed for eating and brushing. We also offer other services for kids, teens, and adults.


Braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment. They are made up of metal brackets that are glued to your teeth and connected with wires. The wires are adjusted periodically to gradually move your teeth into the desired position.

They help with certain types of malocclusions, including overbite, underbite, crossbite, and gap teeth.


Invisalign® is a type of clear aligner that is virtually invisible. It is made up of a series of clear, plastic trays that fit over your teeth. The trays are replaced every few weeks as your teeth slowly move into place.


Retainers hold your teeth in place after braces or other orthodontic treatments. They are usually made of plastic or metal and fit snugly over your teeth.

Other types of orthodontic treatments are available, such as tooth-colored brackets, Damon braces, and palatal expanders. These treatments can be used to correct a variety of dental problems.

Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontic treatment can offer many benefits, both cosmetic and functional. Some of the most common benefits of orthodontic treatment include:

  • A straighter, more attractive smile
  • Improved bite alignment
  • Improved speech
  • Easier to keep teeth clean and healthy
  • Boosted self-esteem and confidence
