Knoxville Orthodontics Is The Exclusive Providers of Brava by Brius

At our orthodontic practice, we proudly utilize Brava by Brius, a groundbreaking method that helps in the independent and simultaneous movement of teeth. Placed discreetly on the back of the teeth, Brava by Brius ensures both effectiveness and visual appeal, even in complex cases. The absence of wires connecting the teeth means that each tooth can be moved individually without affecting others nearby, enabling our orthodontist to achieve highly effective and efficient results. It is worth noting that we are currently the exclusive provider of this cutting-edge technology in Knoxville, setting ourselves apart from other practices in town.
