When not outfitting mouths with dental implants, Dr. Michael McCracken dons his professor’s cap at the University of Alabama School of Dentistry and lectures around the world on implant dentistry. Dr. McCracken, who holds a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering, also teaches other dentists how to perform dental implants at Alabama Implant Education LLC. Sessions include live patient surgeries and post-operative treatment plans acted out with sock puppets.

The Invisalign process straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics, and Dr. McKinney’s spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Invisalign eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. A comprehensive oral exam (a $100 value), including x-rays and photos (a $150 value), and models of your mouth terrain (a $75 value) will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment or braces treatment varies with each customer (the average cost is $4,950 for a full Invisalign treatment, $3,950 for Invisalign Express, and $4,950 for a braces treatment).
It's clear that Orthodontics South PC is unique as soon as patients enter the office. A curved line of treatment chairs snakes around the windowed perimeter of the lobby, affording each guest his or her own scenic view. Wood floors, glossy tabletops, and earth tones cultivate a calmly contemporary feel. And most importantly, there's Dr. Brandon Boggan, who helps addresses oral issues, straightens teeth, and make smiles shine brighter than a lightbulb winning a spelling bee.
PC Cosmetic & Family Dentistry’s Dr. Amanda L. Thompson tends to tooth needs with general and cosmetic dentistry, treating gum problems, whitening teeth, and installing ceramic veneers. While she performs a dental checkup or fills a cavity, patients watch TV or zone out as a relaxation CD pipes gentle music into the treatment room. She even improves the rest of the face with the help of beauty injections such as Juvéderm and Botox, which smooth wrinkles and plump up deep lines next to the mouth.
