Misaligned teeth can make us embarrassed to smile, but they can also lead to serious oral health problems.

Orthodontics can straighten your teeth, boosting your confidence and preventing oral health problems from developing.

Elite Dental Care can help you achieve a straighter smile with one of three orthodontic treatments, without requiring an orthodontist.

We Make Orthodontic Care Convenient

Elite Dental Care has five locations, all with flexible hours:

  • Jackson, TN
  • Germantown, TN
  • Dyersburg, TN
  • Trenton, TN
  • Eads, TN

What Can Orthodontics Fix?

Orthodontics can correct a variety of cosmetic concerns and oral health problems, including:

  • Misalignment
  • Overbites/underbites
  • Open bites
  • Crowding
  • Gaps
  • Asymmetry

During a consultation, one of our dentists can determine which orthodontic treatment will best address your problems.


Elite Dental Care offers orthodontics to children and adults throughout Western Tennessee. Whether you want your child to have a more functional bite and better oral health or you're an adult who wants to fine-tune their smile, our doctors have the solution you need.

Our dental team prides itself on providing a warm and comfortable environment with effective treatment options for all ages. Patients looking for an extra level of care know to turn to us since we are one of the few practices providing  sedation dentistry in Western Tennessee. They also appreciate that we make a point of getting them in for appointments quickly.

If you are interested in orthodontics for yourself or your child, leave us a message or call one of our offices serving the people of Jackson, TN; Germantown, TN; Dyersburg, TN; Trenton, TN; Eads, TN; and beyond. You can reach our Jackson office at:

The Orthodontic Process

Just like orthodontists, our doctors in Western Tennessee are knowledgeable about orthodontics and which types of braces are suitable in each case. You or your child can undergo your entire treatment without having to familiarize yourself with an outside orthodontist.

Your treatment timeline will include several steps:

Our mission is to provide patients with the kind of caring and compassionate dental treatment that we would want to receive.
Our mission is to provide patients with the kind of caring and compassionate dental treatment that we would want to receive.

​Orthodontic Consultation

You will first meet with one of our doctors to explore your options and determine if you're a candidate for orthodontics. Your doctor will examine your bite, discuss your cosmetic goals, take X-rays, and give you an estimate on how long your treatment will take.


Just like an orthodontist, our  doctor will then take impressions of your teeth so they can plan how to best move your teeth into their optimal positions. These impressions are also used in the fabrication of your brackets or aligner trays.

Receive Orthodontics

At a follow-up appointment, your doctor will be able to place your braces or deliver your clear aligner trays.

Wear Your Orthodontics

Over the next several months, follow the instructions given to you by your doctor so your orthodontic treatment can effectively reposition your teeth and jaw. These instructions may include following an at-home oral hygiene routine, attending regular check-ups to tighten wires, or keeping appointments to monitor progress with aligner trays.

​Complete Treatment

At your final appointment, your doctor will remove your braces or confirm that you've finished your Invisalign treatment.

Are You Ready for a Dazzling Smile?

Maintaining Your Results  

Following your orthodontic treatment, you'll have to use a retainer to hold your teeth in place as the bone heals around them, securing them in their new position. Your doctor may provide you with a retainer and instructions on how to use it. You may have to wear it for several hours each day and every night indefinitely. Failure to wear the retainer may result in your teeth shifting into their original, misaligned position.

If you've received Invisalign, your final aligner trays may be used as a retainer.

Paying for Your Orthodontics

Dental Insurance

All of our Elite Dental Care locations accept a wide range of dental insurance plans to keep orthodontic treatment affordable in Jackson and throughout Western Tennessee. Our friendly staff members will work directly with your provider to ensure that you're getting the most out of your coverage.


Orthodontics may not be covered by insurance for those over the age of 18, so our staff at Elite Dental Care works with CareCredit® to help patients manage out-of-pocket costs. CareCredit allows patients to pay for their treatment in affordable monthly installments.

Shouldn't I Seek Treatment With an Orthodontist?  

Though orthodontists are known for correcting misalignment, you can receive quality orthodontic treatment from the doctors at any of our practices, including our offices in Jackson, Trenton, and Germantown. Like orthodontists, our doctors have undergone extensive training in this field and we offer the same kind of quality dental care. In addition to providing orthodontics, we also perform a wide variety of other dental procedures that contribute to  overall oral health.
