Your Seymour orthodontist
Dr. Allen Langford was born and raised in Knoxville before attending the University of Tennessee Knoxville for his undergraduate education. He went on to attend the University of Tennessee School of Orthodontics, where he completed his residency in 2001 with a certificate in orthodontics and a Master’s degree in Dental Science.
Dr. Langford and the team at Langford Orthodontics are dedicated to providing healthy, beautiful smiles to patients of all ages in Seymour, Knoxville and the surrounding areas. We’re dedicated to continuing our education to provide our patients with the most state-of-the-art treatments and technology. Dr. Langford is a member of the following organizations:
Traditional braces continue to be the most popular and effective orthodontic treatment year after year. Dr. Langford will attach metal or ceramic brackets to your teeth, then connect them using wires and rubber bands. Through regular adjustments at check-ups in our office, these parts will work together to gently apply pressure to your teeth, moving them to the desired positions.
Seymour braces are a great option for correcting many tooth issues, from simple to complex. Since they can work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other treatments might, time in braces can be slightly reduced. Braces also don’t require some of the more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, so they can be a great option for patients on a budget!
Instead of the brackets and bands of metal braces, the Seymour Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to slowly and consistently move the teeth into alignment. This option is incredibly popular with patients and orthodontists alike and is currently the top alternative to traditional braces.
Invisalign aligners are made from a comfortable plastic material and are designed to fit snugly over the patient’s teeth. The trays are nearly invisible and are typically switched out every 1-2 weeks for the next aligner in the series. This keeps the movement of the teeth on track! Aligners must be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment in order for them to be effective. Patients who neglect to wear their aligners as directed by Dr. Langford can have a negative impact on their results and add time to their treatment.
Invisalign is most effective when used to correct many of the most common orthodontic issues. For more complex cases, Invisalign may not be the best option. A free consultation with Langford Orthodontics will help you determine your eligibility for Invisalign clear aligner therapy.
