Experienced and Knowledgeable Orthodontist in Birmingham for Children, Teens & Adults
Welcome to our friendly, fun-loving practice. We look forward to being able to help you or your child achieve a healthy, fully functional, straight and beautiful smile!
Dr. Debbie Sema is a board certified orthodontist with extensive post-graduate training. She offers orthodontic services, including braces, Invisalign and TMJ (jaw joint) alignment. She partners with local oral surgeons to provide care for her patients with more severe malocclusions that need jaw surgery for their best result. She uses state-of-the-art orthodontic procedures, such as the self-ligating Damon Braces system and Insignia Advanced Smile Design for precision planning. This advanced technology can significantly reduce treatment times and makes treatment more comfortable.
Invisalign® Clear Teeth Straightening
Dr. Sema is an Invisalign Preferred Provider. Her knowledge and skill allows her to obtain excellent teeth straightening results for her patients. Invisalign clear aligners are removable, making it easy to eat and care for your teeth.
Damon Braces & Damon Clear
Based on her advanced training in all orthodontic treatments, Dr. Sema has decided that Damon Braces are one of the best arch-wire and bracket systems available. This system can decrease treatment time compared to traditional braces. There is also the option for Damon Clear Braces, making them a great option for anyone who wants to straighten their teeth without it being easily noticed.
Insignia Advanced Orthodontic Design system
With this computerized design system, Dr. Sema can decrease orthodontic treatment times even more. This interactive software uses digitized information based on an individual patient’s dental condition and allows for custom design of wiring and brackets for the most comfortable and effective teeth straightening.
Our fun environment for kids
Our office features fun entertainment for your children. We have an Xbox and PlayStation, a miniature train on tracks and freshly baked cookies and drinks. We also hold in-office contests for prizes and hold sports memorabilia giveaways.
The Oxmoor office is located in what was previously the North Birmingham Train Depot. It was built in the 1870s and operated at the corner of 29th Street and 29th Avenue. It was moved to our current location 30 years ago and restored by George and June Ritchey when they opened their Interior Design business.
The office still has the feel of an old train depot and is decorated with fun train memorabilia. We even use a system of depot train tickets that we give kids when they start treatment. They get their ticket punched each time they come in, and they can collect them and trade them in for gift cards, ipods, video game consoles and more! Tickets are fully punched out if you refer a patient and you receive an additional three tickets when your referral starts treatment.
Dr. Sema offers a complimentary consultation to determine what needs to be done to improve your or your child’s smile and to discuss treatment options. Click here to learn more about this special offer.
