Find out if Invisalign is the best orthodontic alternative to correct your smile.

If you’re an adult you probably think the ship has sailed on getting a straighter smile. Not so fast! If you are dealing with a bad bite, crooked or misaligned teeth, or gaps between teeth then you could just be a great candidate for Invisalign, which our Jacksonville Beach, FL, orthodontist Dr. Josh Goldknopf is happy to offer to his older teen and adult patients.

What Makes Invisalign Different

One of the biggest concerns our older patients have is that their braces will be visible. They don’t want to walk into an important conference or meeting just to have everyone stare at their braces. We get that, which is why our Jacksonville Beach, FL, orthodontist offers Invisalign in the first place. It’s completely discreet, using specially crafted and completely transparent plastic aligners that fit snug against the teeth.

Computer technology is used to determine every little shift and movement of your teeth that is required to get your smile into the ideal alignment. This data is then set to an Invisalign-approved lab, where they will make your set of aligners. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced with the next set. The number of aligners you have will depend on the severity of your dental issues. The average number of Invisalign aligners in a treatment plan is between 20-30.

Who is a Good Candidate for Invisalign

Invisalign is approved for older teens and adults whose teeth have fully matured and are done growing. Since little kids’ teeth aren’t done growing, this means that aligners won’t provide the appropriate fit needed to properly move teeth around, which is why teeth must be fully developed before Invisalign can be offered. Invisalign is a great way to treat,

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overbites
  • Crowding
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Open bites
  • Overlapping teeth

Dealing with one or more of these issues? If so, Invisalign could easily correct these problems and give you the results you’re looking for. What are you waiting for?

If Invisalign sounds like the ideal option for you, then it’s time to sit down with our orthodontist Dr. Goldknopf at our Jacksonville Beach, FL, or Ponte Vedra, FL, location. To schedule an orthodontic consultation, call The Brace Place at (904) 249-0037.
