Our doctor and his team are committed to creating a friendly and comfortable environment while treating each patient with the most efficient and effective care. We are happy to provide multiple treatment options, from early treatment and adolescent treatment to adult treatment. If you are interested in orthodontic treatment, please review our different options for braces below!

Traditional Metal Braces

Glass Orthodontics offers traditional metal braces for patients of all ages even though they are typically seen on early treatment and adolescent treatment patients. Metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment. This type of orthodontic brace is made of high-grade stainless steel. Although metal braces used to be very noticeable, today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive. With metal braces, you are able to change the band color for your personal preference, making them your own!

Clear Braces

Dr. Glass also offers clear ceramic braces, which tend to be the most popular amongst the adult patients. Ceramic braces are much like traditional metal braces except for that they are made of a clear material making them less noticeable to the eye. If you are interested in a clear option that has the efficiency of traditional braces, come in and see us today!


Invisalign braces are an option for adults that do not wish for people to know that they are undergoing orthodontic treatment. This option allows patients to straighten their smile without anyone knowing they are wearing braces! The Invisalign system is a series of clear aligners that will be computer generated to gradually move your teeth. This system is great as the aligners are removable and makes it easy to eat and brush and floss your teeth whenever you would like! Contact our Atmore, Daphne or Bay Minette office today to find out if you are a candidate for the Invisalign system.

SmartClip™ Braces

The SmartClip appliance is a unique bracket system that uses technology known as “self-ligation”. This allows the wire to slide back and forth within the bracket and creates less friction and results in greater comfort for the patients. This system often reduces both the length of treatment as well as the number of adjustments that are performed by the orthodontist.
