“My teeth are gorgeous! Dr. Mann worked his genius mechanical skills and I now have a gorgeous smile!
It's one thing to have superior clinical skills but Dr. Mann has the best bedside-manner of any of my physicians. Loved his positive and sunny personality! I highly recommend Dr. Mann; especially to adults who have waited to get braces or perhaps need braces again! My husband said that if Dr. Mann can get me to comply with all the care needed then Dr. Mann can get any teen or child to comply!
Tampa's gain is Gainesville's loss of a great orthodontist!“

Self Ligating Braces
Self-ligating braces are made from the same materials as traditional braces. However, self-ligating braces do not require the use of elastics, meaning fewer appointments and less friction being placed on the tooth. Self-ligating braces come with traditional metal, ceramic, or clear brackets. They are the same size as metal braces, but use a specialized clip in place of elastics to help the archwire guide teeth into place. The clip helps reduce the amount of pressure being placed on the tooth, and requires fewer adjustments because there are no elastics to replace.
