You’ve put up with crooked teeth for far too long as it is and 2018 is the year that you should finally do something about it. If you’re ready to make your New Year’s resolution improving the alignment of your teeth, call Panama City Smiles at 850-588-0185 to book a free consultation with us to learn about our various orthodontic options.
Our Panama City, FL dentist office services our local community and the entire Bay County area as well. We want to be your one-stop shop for teeth-straightening treatments, cosmetic dentistry, and much more. If you’ve seen another dentist and had reservations about what they said to you, visit us for a free second opinion for any service we offer that you’re interested in.
You can trust our expertise when it comes to teeth-straightening options in particular because our very own Dr. Anish Patel finished an advanced training course specifically in orthodontics that took three years. And that’s on top of his dental degree and other continuing education courses he regularly completes! With our help, you’ll be able to straighten your teeth and:
- Feel more confident about your appearance when you’re out in public or even just catching glimpses of yourself in the mirror
- Improve your bite and your overall oral health because you’ll chew as you’re supposed to and be able to brush and floss your teeth more easily and thoroughly
- Actually enjoy taking group portraits and snapping selfies
We understand that part of why you’ve put off straightening your teeth for as long as you have could be related to financial concerns. To take some of the financial stress out of the equation, we accept a large variety of payment options, including third-party financing through CareCredit. We’re also more than happy to customize a payment plan that suits you.
We open a little earlier than some dentists do. You can visit us as early as 8:00 a.m. Monday through Friday and take care of your appointments before you have to go to work or drop the kids off at school!
Get Help Finding The Best Orthodontic Solution For You
Every patient has unique needs and we want to do our best to give you the treatment that suits your smile and your goals best. To help you determine the best orthodontic treatment for your particular case, we will thoroughly assess your situation before making any recommendations. To help you feel better prepared before your initial orthodontic visit, we will also provide:
- An estimate of the time your treatment will take
- A review of the various orthodontic services that may work for you
- A general rundown of what you should expect when you visit us to start your treatment
If possible, please bring any X-rays that you have from your previous dentist with you to your initial consultations and visits.
One treatment that has stood the test of time is traditional metal braces. While braces have been around for quite some time now, they have gotten better and better for patients (and dentists) with time. Depending on how severe your misalignment is, this may be your best option for completely straightening your teeth from the roots up.
For patients that require something like traditional braces but want to get a treatment that is slightly more discreet, we can also provide clear ceramic braces. These work just like the traditional treatment but use clear brackets and tooth-colored wires so they are far less noticeable. They’re slightly more expensive than traditional options, but some find it worth it.
We also offer lingual braces, which are so-called because they work like traditional braces but are attached to the back of your teeth, near your tongue, instead of on the front of your teeth. Like traditional braces options, they will take some getting used to but they’ll deliver excellent results and will be extremely difficult to notice.
For patients with only minor misalignment, we also provide short-term ClearCorrect aligners. These use a series of custom-made plastic aligners similar to retainers to gradually straighten teeth. They are removable for meals, oral hygiene, and specials occasions. They are also very discreet and, depending on your case, typically work faster than other orthodontic options.
Regardless of which teeth-straightening treatment you see us for, we will do our best to make your overall experience a pleasant one.
