Improve Your Smile Subtly and Discreetly
Have you always dreamed of having straighter teeth, but you didn't want to wear traditional metal braces? Perhaps you investigated Invisalign® treatment, but were put off by the cost? At Chattanooga Family Dentistry, we offer patients an affordable alternative to braces that is custom designed, comfortable, and nearly invisible. Through the use of innovative cutting-edge technology, our skilled cosmetic dentist, Dr. Andrew Lunn, can reposition misaligned teeth and correct crooked bites. By using the invisible braces system, Bioliner™, our team in Chattanooga will work to improve the look, feel, and natural function of your smile. Dr. Lunn requires patients to pay per tray, making the custom procedure more affordable.
What Is Bioliner™?
Similar to Invisalign®, Bioliner™ is an affordable solution for correcting minor to moderate tooth and jaw misalignment or spacing through the use of clear plastic dental trays. The invisible braces are nearly transparent. The soft, silicone based aligners gently shift teeth, over time, into their optimal position. Bioliner™ can adjust a patient's bite in half of the time of other conventional orthodontic methods.
Will Bioliner™ Work for You?
Bioliner™ trays are a more affordable treatment for patients than Invisalign. Bioliners™ are used on patients experience minor crowding in their mouths, have had their braces taken off early and want to ensure that there will be no undesired movement in the teeth, or do not want a to wear fixed mouth appliance.
Warped, crowded, and overlapping teeth can all seriously compromise your oral health, potentially leading to decay and gum disease, deterioration of the teeth gums and jawbone, joint injury, temporomandibular (TMJ) disorder, headaches, and neck aches.
Since opening his own practice in 1996, Dr. Lunn has been vigorously learning about treatments for TMJ disorder. Dr. Andrew Lunn has trained with Dr. Riley Lunn, his father and one of the South's leading TMJ experts. He continues to study alongside an acclaimed dental expert in Chattanooga, developing pain-free solutions and helping patients suffering from TMJ regain the full function of their smiles. Dr. Lunn is proud to assist patients with mild to moderate cases of TMJ disorder, and provide them with well-rounded, personalized, and long-term orthodontic solutions that fit their needs.
Diadvantages of Bioliner™
Developed by Five Star Orthodontic Lab and Supply, Bioliner trays must be created by a special laboratory, which requires a patient to pay additional lab fees. Because the invisible braces must be replaced, you have to come to our Chattanooga dental office for adjustment and fitting appointments every few weeks. Bioliner™ trays do not correct extensive dental problems; therefore, the treatment isn't appropriate for all cases. Although the silicon trays are clear, they are made with a denser, less transparent plastic than the competitor's aligners.
