Orthodontics in Battle Creek

Offering a variety of orthodontic services at our practice, Dr. Morris is passionate about helping patients achieve the straight, beautiful smile of their dreams. In addition to providing comprehensive cosmetic and general dental services, Dr. Morris possesses additional education and training in orthodontics from the United States Dental Institute. Helping patients of all ages, including adults and young children, orthodontics promotes more than an attractive appearance. In fact, possessing a straight smile is good for overall oral health. From traditional braces to clear aligners like Invisalign, crooked, overlapped, and gapped teeth can be moved to healthier, straighter positions in a matter of months.

Interceptive Orthodontics for Children

Taking a preventive approach, interceptive orthodontics involves straightening smiles during the period of tooth transition, when permanent teeth replace baby teeth. This time is perfect for creating room in the mouth for new, emerging teeth so that existing teeth do not become crowded or overlapped. While the jawbone is still developing, the palate can be expanded with oral appliances, which can eliminate the need for oral surgery or tooth extraction in the future. Interceptive treatment can help reduce orthodontics cost in the future.

Dr. Morris believes that orthodontic treatment for children should be a fun and exciting experience. To help encourage our younger patients, we offer brackets and elastics in fun, vibrant colors to suit every personality.

Discreet Braces for Adults

More and more adults are receiving orthodontics to straighten and enhance their smiles. To help patients achieve a straighter smile discreetly, we offer tooth-colored orthodontic appliances and clear aligners through the Invisalign system.

Like traditional braces, Invisalign applies gentle force to slowly shift teeth to a straighter position over time. The Invisalign system offers benefits that are unique when compared to traditional orthodontics. The aligners are removable so that patients can clean their teeth and eat food comfortably. They are also far more discreet than traditional metal-and-wire braces. In fact, Invisalign is almost undetectable to others.
