Saint Augustine orthodontics
Among the varied dental services we’re pleased to offer here at Dental Doctors of Florida are our Saint Augustine orthodontics. If your teeth are crooked or misaligned, there are complications and difficulties that are associated with that situation. First and foremost, for most patients, is that it is not cosmetically appealing. You might find yourself reluctant to smile or even speak so as to not show your teeth to other people. In addition, you might notice discomfort from the position your teeth are in. And your oral hygiene may also be less efficient, since flossing between teeth is more challenging. This could lead you to tooth decay and gum disease, putting your oral well-being in jeopardy. All of these are great reasons to come see us and find out what options you have.
Metal braces are a common way to move your teeth into a more ideal alignment that promotes better dental health and makes your teeth look better in the process. There was a time when braces meant a clunky set of criss-crossing wires and brackets that looked as if you were conducting a science experiment instead of getting your teeth straightened. But our Saint Augustine orthodontics represent a new era and a modern take on metal braces. The ones you wear will be lightweight and even stylish, especially when compared to the braces of the past. One thing that is certain: they are very effective in doing the job for which they are intended. And in the case of particularly stubborn teeth misalignment issues, they may be the only choice to achieve the results you want.
If you would like to avoid metal braces entirely, there is another possibility that is very exciting. Invisalign is a system of clear aligners that do the same job as traditional dental braces, but with some distinct advantages. For one thing, Invisalign is made from plastic that is nearly undetectable when you wear it. This means you won’t have to feel self-conscious about being treated with our Saint Augustine orthodontics. No nosy questions will be coming your way, either, because the rest of the world won’t need to know that you are wearing anything on your teeth. Furthermore, Invisalign aligners are comfortable to wear, won’t irritate your mouth, and won’t dig into your gums.

Our St. Augustine orthodontist will work with you to correct your bad bite. The most popular orthodontic service offered by us is that of Invisalign clear plastic aligners. Our patients enjoy being treated with Invisalign because it means that they can receive orthodontic care in a discreet manner, without others needing to see wires and metal brackets on your teeth. In fact, when worn, Invisalign aligners are just about invisible to others; no one is able to tell you are wearing them. For this reason, our patients are able to attend work meetings and social situations without any fear of experiencing embarrassment that might occur from wearing traditional metal, or even ceramic, braces.
Patients also enjoy being treated by our St. Augustine orthodontist with Invisalign, because it means they will be able to eat anything they want during the treatment process. Treatment with Invisalign takes about the same amount of time as treatment with traditional metal braces. However, since the clear aligners are removed for eating and cleaning, patients can also thoroughly brush and floss their teeth on a daily basis. This means that their teeth will be as clean and as beautiful at the end of treatment, as they were the day they started treatment with Invisalign. Treatment with Invisalign is much more comfortable for many patients because they do not have metal wires or brackets in their mouth. Unfortunately, not all patients’ smiles qualify for treatment with Invisalign. If you would like to meet with our orthodontists to see if Invisalign will work for you, contact us today for an appointment.
