Your Lynn Haven orthodontist

Dr. Buttram attended Harding University in Arkansas on a football scholarship and completed a Bachelor of Science in Biology with honors.

He then went on to earn his DMD from the University of Florida College of Dentistry, also with honors. He completed a 12-month hospital-based advanced general dentistry residency at University Hospital in Jacksonville.

Dr. Buttram received a specialty Certificate in Orthodontics after successfully completing a two-year residency at the University of Pennsylvania. He works to make sure he has to most up to date orthodontic knowledge.

He devotes more than 20 hours each year to continuing education focusing on developing an efficient orthodontic treatment, cosmetic options like Invisalign® and clear braces, soft-tissue lasers, and mini implants (TADS).

Dr. Buttram is devoted to using his expertise to help you discover the right solution for your smile.

Lynn Haven Braces

Through regular adjustments with our doctors, the sophisticated parts of your braces work together to apply gentle pressure to your teeth. This will gradually move the teeth into the desired positions. Traditional braces continue to be one of the most efficient orthodontics treatments cools that we have. We’ll attach metal or ceramic brackets to your teeth, and then connect the brackets with wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics.

Lynn Haven braces are an excellent choice for correcting a number of tooth issues, from simple to complex. Lynn Haven braces are also a cost-effective option for patients on a budget. Because they sometimes work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other options might, overall treatment time can be slightly reduced. In addition, braces don’t require some of the more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can.

Lynn Haven Invisalign

The Lynn Haven Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually move the teeth into alignment instead of brackets and bands. This option is incredibly popular with both patients and orthodontists and is currently the top alternative to traditional braces.

Invisalign is at its most effective when used to correct many of the most common orthodontic issues, and may not be the best option for patients with especially complex cases. A free consultation with Buttram Orthodontics will be able to help determine your eligibility for Invisalign.

Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and designed to fit snugly over the patient’s teeth. The trays are virtually invisible and are usually switched out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series. This keeps the teeth moving in the right direction! Patients who neglect to wear the aligners as directed can have a negative impact on the results and also add time to the orthodontic process. Aligners must be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment in order for them to do their job.
