For over 30 years, Dr. Greenlee has been correcting bites and beautifying smiles through orthodontic treatment. He and Dr. Schmoyer wanted non-extraction treatment for their orthodontic patients; this prompted Dr. Greenlee to pursue extensive continuing education on functional orthodontic treatment. This type of treatment involves using appliances in a young child to influence the growth of their jaws so optimally all permanent teeth will have the room they need to erupt. This type of “early intervention” or “Phase I” treatment could possibly begin as early as age 6, depending on the child.
Dr. Greenlee has treated many patients utilizing functional appliances as well as traditional braces and has incorporated the newest techniques, including TOMAS (temporary orthodontic micro-anchorage system), self-ligating brackets and the Propel System. These advancements have made orthodontic treatment more time efficient for the patient.
Whether you are a child, teenager or adult, orthodontic treatment could be your answer for a healthy and beautiful smile that will last a lifetime!
