No matter how old you are straight teeth are easier than ever. In the past anyone who wanted a straight smile had to contend with traditional wire braces: ugly, uncomfortable, and seriously damaging to your social and professional life! At Panama City Smiles that isn’t a concern anymore – we offer multiple orthodontic solutions that are sure to fit your needs.
Whether you want braces for yourself that will be as invisible as possible, or you need braces for a teenager in your family we can make it happen, often in less time than you ever thought possible!
The Importance Of A Straight Smile
Like it or not your teeth are one of the first things people notice about you. In many cases you don’t even have control over the look of your teeth but that won’t stop people from judging you, unfortunately. As you get older your teeth become more and more important – they can influence your love life, your career, and your ability to be comfortable enough to have the confidence you need to succeed in most areas of your life.
Many adult patients who had braces when younger end up with slightly crooked teeth later on, often due to not wearing a retainer. Others couldn’t afford orthodontic care and still think it’s as uncomfortable and bulky as it was when they were young. No matter why your impressions of dentistry are stuck in the past we want to help you change them – braces and other orthodontic treatments have become easier for children and adults alike!
Treatments We Offer
While we do have a variety of orthodontic treatments available at Panama City Smiles we need to be clear on one important thing: the treatment we recommend will be based on your individual needs for smile correction. We do offer short-term cosmetic orthodontic solutions but if you have serious needs these may not be best for you. We want your orthodontic work to really WORK!
Traditional Orthodontics are still the same as they ever were, and that means they’re tried, true, effective and predictable. If you have bite issues, suffer from temporomandibular joint disorder, or have serious alignment trouble these may be best for you. We use state-of-the-art orthodontic technology and planning to make your treatment as efficient and effective as possible, so hopefully it will take less time than you expect!
Lingual Braces are very similar to traditional braces but with one big difference: they sit on the backs of your teeth. This amazing innovation allows you to straighten the same serious issues that normal braces would resolve, and all without the visibility that they typically have. You’ll be able to get a straighter, more comfortable smile without anyone ever knowing you’re undergoing treatment. Lingual braces are more expensive than traditional ones but the tradeoff is worth it, especially if you’re an adult who needs to look their best.
Ceramic Braces are another great alternative to traditional braces that have the same results all without the need for visible wires and brackets. Ceramic braces are essentially identical to traditional orthodontic treatment with the big exception of being the same color as your teeth, and therefore completely unnoticeable! They’re a great way to get the same results without as much high-visibility!
ClearCorrect Short Term Braces are the ideal treatment for patients wanting to correct simple alignment issues. These clear plastic aligners fit right onto your teeth completely invisibly, allowing you to live without the hassle and inconvenience of any braces at all! You take them out to eat and brush your teeth, leaving very little in your day that they can interrupt.
ClearCorrect are best for patients with minor correction needs, such as a gap, crooked tooth, minor crowding, and other problems that may not require traditional long-term orthodontic treatment. Most patients complete their treatment in just about a year. In many cases people won’t even realize you were going through orthodontic treatment – they’ll just see your great new smile!
