    Damon Braces

    The journey to a beautifully aligned smile has taken a significant leap forward with the advent of Damon braces. These innovative orthodontic devices have transformed how we approach teeth straightening, offering a more comfortable, efficient, and aesthetically pleasing experience. At Woodfin Cabassa Orthodontics, we use Damon braces because they are a revolutionary orthodontic treatment option that combines advanced technology with a patient-centric approach. Unlike traditional braces that use elastic bands to hold the archwires in place, Damon braces feature a self-ligating mechanism. This mechanism employs a sliding door or gate to secure the archwire, reducing friction and allowing for more natural and efficient tooth movement. THE BENEFITS OF DAMON BRACES  Faster Treatment  One of the standout advantages of Damon braces is the potential for shorter treatment times compared to traditional braces. The self-ligating design enables smoother tooth movement, potentially reducing the number of necessary adjustments.  Enhanced Comfort  Damon braces in Pensacola, FL, are designed with rounded contours and smoother edges, reducing irritation to the lips and cheeks. Additionally, the self-ligating system decreases the pressure on teeth, often resulting in less discomfort during the adjustment phase.  Improved Oral Hygiene Damon braces are easier to clean and maintain with no elastic bands to trap food particles. This helps prevent plaque buildup and promotes better oral hygiene throughout treatment.  Efficient Tooth Movement  The self-ligating design of Damon braces allows for more controlled and efficient tooth movement. This can result in a more predictable treatment outcome.  THE PROCEDURE FOR DAMON BRACES  During your first appointment, our orthodontist in Pensacola, FL, will assess your dental needs, discuss your goals, and determine if Damon braces are ideal for you. Damon braces are tailored to your smile and our orthodontist will design a treatment plan that addresses your specific dental issues and aligns with your preferences. The braces are carefully placed on your teeth. Whether you choose metal or clear brackets, the self-ligating mechanism will be integrated, setting the stage for your transformative journey.  Throughout your treatment, you'll visit our orthodontist for adjustments. These appointments are spaced further apart than traditional braces adjustments due to the self-ligating mechanism's efficiency. Proper oral hygiene is essential to ensure a successful outcome. Our orthodontist will guide you in cleaning and maintaining your Damon braces for optimal results. As with any orthodontic treatment, a retainer phase follows the removal of your Damon braces. This phase ensures your newly aligned smile remains stable and beautiful for years.  Damon braces have redefined the orthodontic experience, offering an effective, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing solution for achieving a flawless smile.

  • Invisalign


    Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth without metal brackets and wires. Instead, it uses a series of custom-made, clear aligners to transform your smile. The aligners are removable, so you can take them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss. This is more convenient and makes it easier to maintain good oral health during your treatment. At Woodfin Cabassa Orthodontics, we are Platinum Invisalign Providers and recommend Invisalign to adults and teens who want to improve their smiles discreetly. Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible when worn and made from smooth plastic, so they won't be noticeable or irritate your cheeks or gums like traditional braces may. They also won't cause mouth sores or other types of discomfort. HOW DOES INVISALIGN WORK? If Invisalign suits your needs, our orthodontist in Pensacola, FL, will create a personalized treatment plan. Advanced digital imaging technology, such as 3D or intraoral scans, will be used to create a precise digital model of your teeth. Based on the treatment plan, a series of custom-made aligners are designed for your teeth. These aligners are made from a clear, smooth, and BPA-free plastic material. They are virtually invisible when worn, making them an attractive option for those who desire a discreet orthodontic solution.  Once your aligners are ready, our orthodontist will guide you on how to wear and care for them. You'll wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, 20-22 hours a day, removing them only for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. The aligners are designed to shift your teeth into their desired positions gradually. The aligners exert gentle and controlled pressure on your teeth, moving them slightly with each new set. The treatment plan is based on the predetermined movement of your teeth from the initial digital scan. You'll have periodic check-up appointments with our orthodontist throughout your Invisalign treatment to monitor your progress. These appointments allow our orthodontist to ensure that your teeth are moving as planned and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment. THE BENEFITS OF INVISALIGN  Discreet and Comfortable Traditional metal braces can be painful and unsightly. Invisalign aligners in Pensacola, FL, are virtually invisible when worn. Made from a clear, smooth plastic material, they blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth. This feature allows you to undergo orthodontic treatment without attracting attention, making Invisalign a popular choice among adults and teens.  Convenient  With Invisalign, you do not have to worry about food getting stuck in your brackets or wires because you can remove your aligners to eat, drink, brush, and floss. You also do not have to change how you brush your teeth or worry about brushing around brackets and wires.  Invisalign provides a modern and effective approach to achieving the beautifully aligned smile you've always wanted. If you want a discreet way to improve your smile, visit Woodfin Cabassa Orthodontics at 4857 N 9th Ave., Pensacola, FL 32503, or call (850) 477-2180.

  • Surgical Orthodontics

    Surgical Orthodontics

    Orthodontics is a dynamic field that goes beyond aligning teeth for cosmetic purposes. In cases where more complex issues affect the jaw and facial structure, surgical orthodontics, also known as orthognathic surgery, emerges as a transformative solution. This specialized approach combines orthodontic treatment with surgical intervention to achieve a beautifully aligned smile and improved functionality and facial harmony. At Woodfin Cabassa Orthodontics, we typically recommend surgical orthodontics to address severe skeletal and dental irregularities that cannot be solely corrected through orthodontic treatment. THE ORTHODONTIC SURGERY PROCESS  The process begins with a thorough examination, including X-rays, scans, and photographs. This helps the orthodontist and surgeon accurately diagnose the issues and plan the treatment. Before surgery, the patient wears braces or aligners to align the teeth as much as possible. This sets the stage for optimal surgical results. Our orthodontist in Pensacola, FL, plans the surgical procedure using advanced imaging technology and 3D models. The aim is to achieve facial balance, proper bite, and optimal aesthetics. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia in a hospital setting. The orthodontist repositions the jaws according to the pre-planned adjustments. Tiny screws, plates, or wires may be used to stabilize the bones. Following the surgery, the patient continues with orthodontic treatment to fine-tune the bite and ensure teeth are ideally aligned within the new jaw position.  THE BENEFITS OF SURGICAL ORTHODONTICS  Corrects Severe Malocclusions Surgical orthodontics in Pensacola, FL, is particularly effective in treating severe misaligned bites, such as deep overbites, underbites, and crossbites. The bite can be appropriately aligned by repositioning the jaws, improving oral function and aesthetics.  Enhances Facial Aesthetics In cases where jaw misalignments contribute to facial asymmetry or imbalance, surgical orthodontics can significantly improve facial aesthetics. By achieving better facial harmony, patients often experience enhanced self-confidence and self-esteem.  Improves Oral Function  Jaw misalignments can lead to chewing, speaking, and even breathing difficulties. Surgical orthodontics aims to correct these functional issues, improving speech clarity, chewing efficiency, and oral function.  Boosts Self-Confidence  Surgical orthodontics can be life-changing for individuals who have struggled with significant dental and facial irregularities. The transformation in appearance and function often results in increased self-confidence and an improved quality of life.  Prevents Dental Complications  Severe malocclusions can lead to dental problems such as excessive tooth wear, uneven tooth pressure, and increased risk of cavities. Addressing these issues through surgical orthodontics can reduce the risk of complications.  Reduces TMJ Discomfort  Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders can result from jaw misalignments. Surgical orthodontics can help alleviate TMJ discomfort by properly aligning the jaws and reducing joint strain.  Surgical orthodontics represents the pinnacle of orthodontic care for individuals with complex jaw and facial irregularities. If you or a loved one are struggling with severe malocclusions or jaw discrepancies, visit Woodfin Cabassa Orthodontics at 4857 N 9th Ave., Pensacola, FL 32503, or call (850) 477-2180 to explore the potential of surgical orthodontics.
