After dental school, Dr. Anderson moved to Columbus, Ohio to attend one of the top orthodontic residencies in the country at The Ohio State University where he served as Chief Resident.

Thanks to his research during residency, Dr. Anderson also recognizes the role that the orthodontist can have in helping to diagnose and treat patients with sleep and breathing issues when appropriate.

Clear Aligners in Decatur
Clear aligners are incredibly popular with both patients and orthodontists in Decatur and are the top alternative to traditional braces. Instead of brackets and bands, the clear aligner system uses a series of removable trays to gradually straighten your teeth.
Clear aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and customized to fit snugly over your teeth. To keep your teeth moving in the direction you want them to, you’ll need to switch your invisible trays out for the next one in the series every one to two weeks as directed by Dr. Clinebell or Dr. Anderson.
The clear aligner system can only work if the recommended guidelines are followed exactly! Aligners should be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment. If patients neglect to wear the aligners as directed, it can impede the results and also add time to the orthodontic process.
Clear aligners are most efficient when correcting many of the most common orthodontic issues. For some complex cases, clear aligners may not be a good option. A free consultation with Dr. Clinebell or Dr. Anderson at Clinebell & Anderson Orthodontics in Decatur will allow us to determine your eligibility for clear aligners.
Braces in Decatur are an excellent choice for correcting complex tooth issues. Since they can sometimes work faster at aligning teeth and closing gaps than other treatments might, overall treatment time may be slightly reduced.
Braces don’t require some of the more complex technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, meaning Decatur braces are a cost-effective orthodontic option.
Traditional metal braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. They’re made out of metal or ceramic brackets that are affixed to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics.
These brackets, wires, and bands work together to apply the gentle pressure that will gradually move the teeth into the positions we want them to be in as long as you have regular adjustments with our doctors.
