Personalized Orthodontics in Greenville

At Capps & Woods Orthodontics in Greenville, we pride ourselves on offering you personalized orthodontic care utilizing the latest advancements in dental technology.

Dr. Capps and Dr. Woods provide you with the most modern treatment options, ensuring that your journey to a perfect smile is customized to your needs and preferences.

Expertly Realign Your Smile

Orthodontic issues impact people of all ages. Kids, teens, and grown-ups all need help renewing their smiles. Most people need some help achieving the smile of their dreams.

Bad bites (or “malocclusions”) can make life seem harder for you. If you leave these issues untreated, bad bites can lead to difficulties in chewing, maintaining oral hygiene, and talking. They can also affect how you look.

Bad bites can be genetic (inherited from your parents). But they can also result from habits like sucking your thumb. Other causes include delayed or insufficient dental care, illnesses, accidents, disabilities, or other health conditions.

At Capps and Woods Orthodontics, our team combines state-of-the-art technology with expert orthodontic techniques to move your teeth where they need to be.

This advanced approach allows Dr. Woods and Dr. Capps to address different dental dilemmas, such as:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Protruding teeth
  • Impacted teeth

Traditional Braces

At Capps and Woods Orthodontics, many patients go with traditional metal braces to align their teeth.

Though metal braces remain a staple in our orthodontic arsenal in Greenville,  we also have various other alternatives.

How can you determine which treatment is right for you? Dr. Woods and Dr. Capps will talk over your needs and goals during your first consultation.

Fixed Appliances Vs. Removable Appliances

At Capps & Woods Orthodontics, we’ll keep you fully informed about your treatment. We’ll go over your orthodontic problems and help you understand the difference between removable and fixed appliances.

Dr. Capps and Dr. Woods use fixed appliances, like metal or ceramic braces, for more comprehensive, serious treatment. As their name implies, we’ll attach these appliances to your teeth for the duration of your treatment.

For mild to moderate orthodontic problems, Dr. Capps or Dr. Woods might prescribe a removable appliance.  Wear your clear aligners for 20 – 22 hours of the day.

Thankfully, you can take them out for meals, brushing and flossing, and special occasions. If you play an instrument, are part of a sports team, or make speeches at work, clear aligners might be best for you.


At Capps & Woods Orthodontics, Dr. Capps and Dr. Woods utilize the cutting-edge Miniscrew-Assisted Rapid Palatal Expanders (MARPEs) technique.

This sophisticated approach is ideal for older adolescents and adults, skillfully widening the upper jaw in cases where traditional expanders may not suffice.

MARPEs with specialized mini-screws offer a robust solution for intricate orthodontic challenges. This method exemplifies our team’s dedication to providing you with Greenville's most advanced and comprehensive orthodontic care.

Traditional Expander & Surgical Treatment

We recognize that different age groups require distinct approaches to jaw expansion.

Traditional expanders are ideally suited for younger patients whose jaw structures are still developing, whereas surgical interventions are tailored for adults with fully fused palatal sutures.

Regardless of your age, you will receive the most appropriate treatment for your specific needs. This commitment ensures the best possible outcomes regarding your jaw alignment and overall oral health.
