At Davis Orthodontics, we offer a variety of braces options for kids, teens and adults. Today’s braces will shift your teeth into place more comfortably and in less time all while looking fantastic, of course. How do they work? Well, first we take a precise digital scan of your mouth. Then, Dr. Buddy designs your new smile so your braces are customized just to you. The braces brackets are bonded to your teeth and we thread an archwire through them. The wire exerts gentle force and guides the teeth into their new positions.
Our metal and clear braces are placed on the front of your teeth. While you can see metal braces, the brackets are smaller and more streamlined than they were in the past and the wires are thinner. Clear braces work in the same way but because they blend in with your teeth, they’re less noticeable. Want something completely invisible? You’re in luck. Dr. Buddy happens to be the only Premier Provider of Incognito™ lingual braces in the Upstate of South Carolina. These revolutionary braces are bonded to the back of your teeth and can’t be seen at all when you smile.

What are Braces?
Braces involve brackets and wires that apply gentle pressure to move your teeth into place.
Hint: The process starts with a consultation and ends with you having a gorgeous, healthy smile.
