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.
