The Benefits of Seeing an Orthodontist In Your Local Community

If you are from the Burlington or Hillsborough areas in North Carolina, you know just how special this community is. Mack Orthodontics has been a part of this community for many years, and we love how our jobs allow us to build relationships and support the health and happiness of so many people in the surrounding area. 

This is why we’re passionate about encouraging people to go to their local orthodontist rather than choosing other online options. While convenient, there are so many perks to investing in your local community through your orthodontic treatment, both benefitting the community as well as your own health and well-being! Keep reading to learn more about why choosing a local orthodontist office is the right move!

Focus on Health and Cosmetics

Many people who want orthodontic treatment are interested in having a more beautiful, confident smile. This is a great reason to get orthodontics and is just as legitimate as needing to support your oral health through treatment interventions. But why should you choose just one or the other? 

We think that your most beautiful smile is only possible when it’s also your healthiest smile. Dr. Mack is an expert at making sure both happen at the same time, ensuring that the stunning smile that you are investing in will last a lifetime and keep your teeth, jaws, and gums in great condition too. This isn’t guaranteed when you opt for an online aligner option, which is why we don’t recommend it!

Support a Local Business

It is each person’s responsibility to invest in our local community to keep small businesses open and the local economy thriving. By spending your hard-earned dollars at a local orthodontist office, like Mack Orthodontics, you will be a part of supporting our families and those of our amazing team, and allow us to be active in supporting our favorite causes in the community, too. 

Plus, you will be a part of keeping our office open and available for more people nearby who desperately need orthodontic care! There are so many reasons to shop local, and we are incredibly grateful to our wonderful roster of patients who are already a part of our Mack Orthodontics family! 

Multiple Treatment Options

When it comes to excellent orthodontic care, we believe that you deserve options. You shouldn’t have to settle for just one approach when there might be another one that is better suited to your unique dental needs or preferences. The truth is if you don’t know what your options are, how can you make the best decision? That’s why we are so happy to offer our patients so many different treatments and walk them through each choice to find what will work best for them. Let’s learn about them. 

Braces of All Kinds

Braces have evolved so much over the years. Of course, we provide the traditional metal braces that you think of when you think of old-school orthodontics, but we also offer ceramic and INbrace lingual braces at our offices. 

Ceramic or clear braces are made from a discrete tooth-colored ceramic that will blend right in with your natural teeth, rendering them nearly invisible. Many adults and teens love their ceramic braces for all the super-effective aligning power and their not-too-obvious appearance. Ceramic braces do have a tendency to stain when not properly looked after, so be ready to keep them extra clean throughout treatment!

INbrace lingual braces are a unique and completely invisible option where the braces are placed on the inside of your teeth. They will adjust your teeth effectively completely from the back, and are our most discreet options for people concerned about their appearance during treatment! 


Invisalign retainers are our most popular treatment option and for good reason. They tend to be the most convenient and comfortable choice since they are completely removable and you won’t need to have something permanently secured onto your teeth during treatment. With a little practice, you will learn how to discreetly slip them out and store them during meals and otherwise.

Many people think that if aligners are that simple to use and wear, they can get away with just ordering them online. But remember, it’s important to have an orthodontist observing your treatment to ensure that it is happening as safely as possible. Like we said before, just shifting your teeth around arbitrarily or too quickly can cause catastrophic results like damaged nerves and tooth loss, and we want to prevent that at all costs! 

Care From a Board-Certified Orthodontist

You know you’ll be safe when you receive your orthodontic treatment from Dr. Mack. He is a board-certified orthodontist, which means he spent many years specializing in his profession and continues with ongoing education to make sure he is up to date on all the best options for you and your family. There really is no replacing that, no matter how convenient.
