At Moody Orthodontics, we provide exceptional results for exceptional people. Dr. Moody believes every smile is unique and loves the art involved in creating the perfect smile for every individual. See below and check out our Facebook page for before and after photos of real results and really happy patients.

SID

MAIN CONCERN:

Sid had severely crowded teeth and a crossbite (top teeth sit behind bottom teeth) when he came to see us. He was very self-conscious about his smile and was motivated to do something about it.

SOLUTION:

Based on Sid‘s facial features, bone structure and lip prominence he was treated without extractions of any teeth. Dr. Moody used braces and Damon wires combined with elastics to give him a broad and balanced smile. Sid and his mom could not believe his results and were absolutely thrilled with the outcome. Total time: 20 months



ELIANNA

MAIN CONCERN:

Ellianna had several baby (primary) teeth left and did not have enough space for her permanent teeth to erupt due to a narrow (V shaped) upper jaw. Ellianna and her parents were unhappy with her front teeth sticking out (protruded front teeth) and it was affecting her self-esteem.

SOLUTION:

We did early or Phase I treatment on Ellianna with a palatal expander appliance and limited upper and lower braces. This early treatment (before growth is complete and the sutures in the bone are fused) allowed us to change the shape of her jaw and create more room for her adult teeth to come in thus avoiding future extractions. We also dramatically changed her smile and gave her more self confidence! Total time: 10 months



ELIANNA

HAILEY

MAIN CONCERN:

Hailey was referred to us by her dentist for an anterior crossbite (top teeth sit behind bottom teeth) of all of her front teeth. Hailey was unhappy with the appearance of her smile and also her ability to bite into food. She told us she didn’t like smiling or showing her teeth because of the way they looked.

SOLUTION:

Hailey was treated with braces and elastics to correct the crossbite and give her a big beautiful smile. It was fun to watch Hailey’s self esteem sky rocket and to hear that she was smiling for all of her pictures. Total time: 17 months



JACOB

MAIN CONCERN:

Jacob came to us with a complaint about his excessive overjet (his front teeth sticking out) and spaces between his teeth. Jacob’s bite was significantly off (Class II) and his lower jaw was too far behind his upper. This resulted in an unattractive profile with a deficient chin. Jacob was told he would need jaw surgery when he stopped growing but his parents wanted to try avoid it if possible.

SOLUTION:

Jacob was still growing when he came to us so we utilized an appliance to modify his growth (Forsus appliance) and braces to fully correct his overjet and overbite while avoiding jaw surgery. Jacob and his parents were thrilled with the results and the minimally invasive treatment plan. Total time: 23 months



MADELINE

MAIN CONCERN:

Madeline didn’t like her crowded and turned front teeth or her overbite. Madeline was like most of our teen patients, she wanted a beautiful smile but she was very busy with extracurricular activities and she didn’t want traditional or clear braces.

SOLUTION:

Invisalign Teen was the perfect option for Madeline. This option allowed her less frequent visits, the ability to eat what she wanted and the convenience of taking her aligners out to brush and floss. We used Invisalign Teen to align her teeth and give her a big smile.  She was excited to get the smile she always wanted without having to wear braces or disrupt her busy schedule.  Total time: 18 months



NOELLA

MAIN CONCERN:

Noella came to us concerned with her canine sticking out and crowding of her teeth. Noella was a busy college student who really wanted Invisalign but was told by other orthodontists that braces were the only way to correct her smile and bite.

SOLUTION:

We felt Noella was a great candidate for Invisalign treatment and that all of her problems could be corrected with Dr. Moody’s expertise using Invisalign. We were able to bring down her canine and correct all of her crowding and bite issues without braces. Total time: 23 months



ROSE

MAIN CONCERN:

Rose had extreme crowding and bite problems when she came to us. Rose wanted a beautiful smile and ideal bite and her parents wanted something that would be stable last a lifetime.

SOLUTION:

Due to the severe crowding and the fact that her midline was significantly off center, Rose was treated with extraction of four bicuspid teeth and braces. Even with extractions, Dr. Moody gave Rose a big wide smile and took special care to give her an ideal outcome where nobody could tell any teeth had been removed. Treatment time: 22 months



SHEA

MAIN CONCERN:

Shea came to us because she could not bite into anything with her front teeth and hated her smile.  Shea had a severe openbite (front teeth don’t meet) and a tongue thrust problem. Multiple orthodontists told Shea she needed extractions and jaw surgery to correct her bite. Shea turned to Dr. Moody to get the best results possible with the most conservative treatment.

SOLUTION:

We agreed to treat Shea conservatively, as she and her mother did not want extractions or jaw surgery. Dr. Moody carefully and precisely placed Shea’s braces with indirect bonding and combined this with elastics (rubber bands) to close her bite. The outcome we achieved with only braces is astonishing! Shea, her mother and her dentist were amazed with the results. Shea is now biting into all the food she desires. Treatment time: 18 months



BRITTANY

MAIN CONCERN:

Brittany came to us after seeing several different orthodontists. Brittany was looking for someone detail oriented and experienced with surgical treatment that she could trust to give her a perfect smile AND bite. She was concerned with her overjet (front teeth sticking out), Class II bite and her profile (deficient chin and lower jaw). Brittany was excited to learn that Dr. Moody is extremely experienced with surgical orthodontics and that Dr. Moody had jaw surgery herself.

SOLUTION:

Brittany was treated with low profile braces combined with orthognathic (jaw) surgery to move her lower jaw forward. Dr. Moody worked hand in hand with the surgeon to ensure Brittany achieved an ideal result and walked Brittany through every step of the process. Brittany finished with a beautiful big smile and an ideal bite and profile. Total time: 22 months



BENJAMIN

MAIN CONCERN:

Ben came to us because he didn’t like his narrow smile and he had trouble biting with his front teeth (openbite). He was missing an upper tooth and was unhappy that his front teeth had shifted over (midline was off ) and were not centered with his face. Ben had a demanding career as a police officer and was getting married so he did not want braces on for his wedding.

SOLUTION:

We treated Ben with Invisalign to give him a big broad smile to fit his face and corrected his midline by opening space for an implant to replace his missing tooth. We also corrected his bite so he can now bite into food with no problem. Ben’s smile looked great for his wedding and he was thrilled with his results! Total time: 23 months
