Dr. Langford and Dr. Ringer are orthodontists. Orthodontists are dentists that have decided to devote themselves solely to the development of smiles through braces or other appliances. In order to practice as a specialist in Orthodontics, our doctors spent 11 years in training (four years of college, four years of dental school, and three years of orthodontics training).
During this training, our doctors learned the skills required to manage tooth movement (orthodontics) and to guide facial development (dentofacial orthopedics).
From the moment you contact our Knoxville or Seymour orthodontic office to your final retainer check appointment, our goal is to make you completely happy. One of our family orthodontists, Dr. Langford or Dr. Ringer, will take the time to get to know you and the goals you have for your teeth and smile. Then, he’ll help you choose the best type of appliance to achieve your goal – traditional braces, clear ceramic braces or Invisalign® clear aligners.
Our goal is that you leave our office after every appointment with a new reason to smile. You’ll enjoy working together with us to make sure you achieve the smile of your dreams.
Gone are the days of painful headgear, clunky bands on every tooth, and overly tight stainless steel wires. Today’s orthodontic treatment in Knoxville and Seymour is much more comfortable than it used to be, due to shape-memory NiTi wires.
With the same technology that NASA utilizes, NiTi wires exert a continuous force against the teeth to move them in the right direction, eliminating the need for wire tightening, thus reducing a patient’s overall time in braces and much of the discomfort.
As some of the best orthodontists in Knoxville and Seymour, Dr. Langford and Dr. Ringer stay up-to-date on the latest in orthodontic treatment. From aesthetic options like ceramic braces and Invisalign® to digital scanners and 3D printing, you can get cutting-edge diagnosis and treatment that’ll lead to your best smile in the shortest time.
