Your Mobile orthodontist
Dr. Todd Bennett attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for undergraduate studies, as well as his Doctorate of Dental Surgery. He then served his Orthodontics residency at the University of Connecticut Health Sciences Center. In order to give his patients the best care possible, Dr. Bennett attends numerous continuing education classes and seminars, while participating in numerous online training courses each year. He is also a member of several prestigious orthodontic organizations such as:

Dr. Bennett strongly believes in giving back to families in his community. He’s honored to be a Partner in Education with several local schools and has been named Partner in Education of the Year several times. He also participates in the nationally recognized Smiles Change Lives program, which provides orthodontic treatment to children in need.
Traditional braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. The metal or ceramic brackets are attached to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. Through regular adjustments with our doctors, these components work together to apply gentle pressure, which will gradually move the teeth into the desired positions.
Mobile braces are an excellent choice for correcting a number of tooth issues, from simple to complex. Because they sometimes work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other options might, overall treatment time can be slightly reduced. In addition, braces don’t require some of the more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can. This makes Mobile braces a cost-effective orthodontic option for patients on a budget.
Rather than brackets and bands, the Mobile Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move the teeth into alignment. This option is incredibly popular with both patients and orthodontists, and is currently the top alternative to traditional braces.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and designed to fit snugly over the patient’s teeth. The trays are virtually invisible, and are usually switched out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series. This keeps the teeth moving in the right direction! Aligners must be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment in order for them to do their job. Patients who neglect to wear the aligners as directed can have a negative impact on the results and also add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign is at its most efficient when used to correct many of the most common orthodontic issues. For certain complex cases, Invisalign may not be a viable option. A free consultation with Bennett Orthodontics will be able to help determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
