Braces & Clear Aligners | Dothan, AL
Modern Treatment Options
As you know, having straight teeth can not only affect your oral health, it can impact your professional and social life, too. You and your family can find the latest braces options from Dr. Katie B. Lewis, making your treatment fast, affordable, and with stunning results.
Clear aligners are a common choice at KBL Orthodontics because they get the job done without interrupting your daily routine. These clear, removable appliances are personalized to fit easily over your teeth.
At our Dothan office, we offer Invisalign and 3M Clarity clear aligners to kids, teens, and adults alike. These aligners are made of a nearly-invisible plastic material.
They not only straighten your teeth but allow you to continue to brush and floss as usual because you can take out the trays when you wish.
Clear aligners with Dr. Lewis offer you a less intrusive way to get the same results as traditional braces. For a similar cost and treatment time, this option allows you to straighten your smile comfortably and discreetly.
Clear ceramic braces give you the confidence you need to flash an amazing smile, both during treatment and after. Clear braces are made from a translucent ceramic material that blends in with the color of your teeth and resists staining.
At KBL Orthodontics, we use Clarity Advanced clear braces.
With a small, low-profile design, our Clarity Advanced braces are virtually unnoticeable, making them perfect for adult and older teen patients in Dothan looking for the confidence and the freedom to smile on any occasion.
Modern Metal Braces
At KBL Orthodontics, traditional metal braces are our most popular treatment choice. These braces are made of high-grade stainless steel and straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires.
Modern metal braces have advanced and no longer require the bulky headgear of years past. Dr. Lewis adheres the brackets directly to your teeth and connects them with wires that gradually straighten your smile.
Our Dothan office creates metal braces using Victory SeriesTM Low Profile brackets.
Unlike other metal brackets, they use a subtle approach that improves the look and feel of the braces.
They look better, feel better, and, because of their lower profile, our patients are more comfortable wearing them.
On top of comfort, Dr. Katie B. Lewis’s patients can add fun colored elastics (rubber bands) with metal braces for a more colorful smile.
Dentofacial Orthopedic Appliances
Dentofacial orthopedics direct the face as the jawbones, facial muscles, and teeth grow and develop. Since facial growth happens mainly during the younger years, children commonly receive dentofacial orthopedics.
Dr. Lewis uses special appliances, including expanders, the Herbst appliance, and other devices to move any facial irregularities into better condition.
Patients who get traditional braces or orthopedic appliances can benefit from the full range of our dental specialty—orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics.

Metal Braces & Other Options
Metal braces are the most common orthodontic treatment in Dothan and surrounding areas, but you have other options.
Fixed Appliances vs. Removable Appliances
At KBL Orthodontics, we want you to be fully informed regarding your treatment. To help our Dothan patients, we want them to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances.
Dr. Katie B. Lewis attaches fixed appliances, like braces, to your teeth and don't take them off until you complete your treatment at our Dothan office.
Traditional metal braces cannot be removed and have particular food restrictions. It takes some adjustment to clean your teeth effectively with braces, but we'll make sure you're prepared.
Clear aligners offer a less intrusive way to get the same great results. This treatment allows you to straighten your smile comfortably and discreetly for a similar cost and timeframe.
When Dr. Katie B. Lewis prescribes a removable appliance like Invisalign, you'll wear it most of the day, but you can take the trays out of your mouth. Besides the noticeable differences, Dr. Lewis uses clear aligners to treat mild orthodontic problems and fixed appliances for more severe treatment cases.
