You may already understand the importance of having a smile you can beam proudly. Whether you want a straight smile because you spend a lot of time talking to people, you want to smile brighter in pictures, or you simply want to increase your confidence, orthodontic treatment at Baker Orthodontics is your solution.
For treatment options, we offer braces that are more comfortable, faster, clear, or even completely invisible. Considering your particular case, combined with your lifestyle, Dr. Baker will be able to recommend a course of treatment that suits your needs.

Since Invisalign® is nearly invisible, you can straighten your teeth without anyone really noticing. Dr. Baker is a Preferred Invisalign® provider in Calhoun, GA, and has treated many patients with Invisalign® clear aligners.
Invisalign® and Invisalign® Teen:
Ceramic braces are made of clear materials which makes them less visible on your teeth than traditional metal braces. For this reason, it gives the ceramic braces a more modern look and feel that tends to be very popular choice among our older teens and adult patients. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to your oral hygiene. Ceramic braces are larger in form and considerably more fragile than that of your traditional metal braces. For those reasons, we tend to use ceramic braces on your upper front teeth than on lower teeth for durability reasons.
At Baker Orthodontics of Calhoun, GA, you can get your braces off faster than traditional treatment with our Odyssey Diode Laser treatment. This is an extra service we offer to help speed up treatment by uncovering slow-to-erupt teeth early. This can also improve your overall results using gingival recontouring. Additionally, if you develop fever blisters or aphthous ulcers during treatment, this laser can help treat the area.
We also offer Propel, an orthodontic treatment that reduces the density in the roots of your teeth, allowing them to move quicker and easier. The procedure only takes 15-20 minutes, without any downtime!
You may also be a candidate for TADs (Temporary Anchorage Devices), which are used to enhance anchorage to decrease treatment time. These devices are immobile and are designed to help push, pull, lift or intrude teeth that are being straightened.
When you want the most comfortable braces at Baker Orthodontics, Dr. Baker will be able to create a custom solution for you! We offer Mini-Twin brackets, which have a mesh bonding base that allows them to curve and more accurately conform to your teeth. Over the course of the treatment, the Mini-Twin bracket system needs fewer archwires than standard brackets, which increases the overall comfort of the patient over the duration of the treatment.
Many patients enjoy its smaller, more compact size, which enables it to be less noticeable, while retaining the capability for effectiveness. While its profile is up to 30% smaller than its competition, it maintains the standard size for its bracket slots, which enables it to maintain the stability and control so important to the treatment process.
The size and the structure create an aesthetically pleasing effect while the added comfort and basic efficiency of the appliance make it a good choice for most patients.
Another treatment solution Dr. Baker will be able to draw from are low-profile brackets. Low-profile brackets are smaller and sit closer to your teeth, reducing protrusion overall. This reduced protrusion will result in less gum-to-bracket contact and friction, allowing for a better treatment experience overall.
When we remove your braces, we will begin the retention stage of your treatment. Your final orthodontic result depends on your retainers, so follow through to maintain for the hard work you’ve put in during treatment. Remember to remove your retainer before brushing, and brush your retainer before returning it to your mouth!
When you become a patient at Baker Orthodontics, you not only are going to be receiving the most comprehensive treatment, you will also be rewarded with the tools necessary to keep your braces clear of any foreign food particles! This kit was designed to keep your gums healthy and your teeth bright – a $150 value, yours FREE!
