An Excellent Smile Designed Just for You
Dr. Buttram is an orthodontist. Orthodontists are dentists first. On average, six percent of dental school graduates go on to become orthodontists.
In order to practice orthodontics, Dr. Buttram spent 10 years in training (four years of college, four years of dental school, and two years of orthodontics residency).
Orthodontic students spend two or three years learning how to manage tooth movement (orthodontics) and to guide facial development (dentofacial orthopedics).
From the moment you contact our office to your final retainer check, our goal at Buttram Orthodontics is for you to leave as happy as possible. At your first appointment, Dr. Buttram will review your records - photos and X-rays - to create a treatment plan that’s personalized to you.
Then you’ll choose the type of braces you want - traditional metal, clear ceramic, or Invisalign. Our goal at Buttram Orthodontics is not just to give you the smile of your dreams. We want you to leave our office after every appointment knowing that you were treated like family and given the best possible care.
No need to worry about painful headgear, clunky bands on every tooth, and overly tight stainless steel wires. Today's orthodontic treatment is much more comfortable than it used to be. This is because of shape-memory NiTi wires.
With the same technology that NASA uses, NiTi wires put constant force on your teeth to move them in the right direction. This means you won’t need to have your wires tightened. You’ll spend less time in braces, and the time you do spend is more comfortable.
At Buttram Orthodontics, we take pride in making the process of straightening your teeth as comfortable as possible.
Everyone dreams of a medical office that takes focuses on flexibility. We offer flexible appointment scheduling and flexible treatment options, as well as flexible payment options.
This means that after we have determined your insurance coverage and filed it for you, we will sit down and come up with a monthly payment plan that fits your budget. We also offer discounts to patients who can pay in full at the start of treatment.
Dr. Buttram is always working to stay up-to-date on the latest advances in orthodontic treatment and technology.
At Buttram Orthodontics, we set the standard for modern orthodontic treatment. We offer aesthetic options like ceramic braces and Invisalign. We also use mini implants and diode laser for faster and more efficient tooth movement and treatment times.
