When it comes to orthodontics for kids, Panama City Beach and Destin-area orthodontist Dr. Scott Runnels offers a broad range of treatment plans to ensure that your child achieves a stunning smile.
A father himself, Dr. Runnels is able to truly connect with young patients so that they feel confident and comfortable throughout the orthodontic treatment process. If your child is ready to pursue orthodontic treatment, we invite you to learn more about the many kid orthodontic options offered at our Panama City Beach and Destin offices.
Kids’ Orthodontics Options
Many of our younger patients view treatment with braces as a sort of rite of passage and have many friends who wear braces, so they may be just fine with traditional metal braces. Other patients, especially our patients in their teen years, may be concerned with the appearance of braces and are better served with tooth-colored or clear ceramic braces or even totally invisible lingual braces. These patients are also often relieved to learn that Dr. Runnels offers Vivera™ retainers, which allow our patients to maintain the placement and positioning of their teeth without the telltale metal wires of traditional retainers. Parents also like Vivera™ retainers because they receive four sets of retainers, so keeping retainers clean and losing retainers become less of a concern. For our younger patients concerned with the amount of time they will be wearing braces, Dr. Runnels is pleased to offer AcceleDent™, which can speed up orthodontic treatment time by up to 50 percent.
Dr. Runnels knows that our younger orthodontic patients often lead very active lifestyles. To help protect the beauty and health of these patients’ smiles, Dr. Runnels can custom-fit them with durable sports mouth guard.
