Is Invisalign the best way to straighten your smile? It’s time to find out.

Are you unhappy with your smile? Do you find that you hide your teeth in photos because they are crooked or misaligned? If you said “yes” Invisalignthen you’ve come to the right place! Our Jacksonville Beach, FL, orthodontist, Dr. Josh Goldknopf, has helped countless patients get the smiles they want. Here at the Brace Place, we believe it’s never too late to get a straight smile. Read on to find out if clear aligner therapy is right for you!


What is clear aligner therapy?

Instead of using brackets and wires to shift teeth, this unique orthodontic treatment uses clear, custom-made aligners. These trays are made from a flexible plastic that rests against the teeth to apply just the right amount of pressure to shift your smile into its ideal alignment. Here at our Jacksonville Beach office, the clear aligner therapy that our orthodontic specialist uses is Invisalign.


What issues can Invisalign treat?

When Invisalign first came out, it was best for handling more minor issues. However, these clear aligner systems have been perfected more and more over the years, allowing them to handle a wide range of issues including,

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Open bites
  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowding or overlapping teeth
  • Gapped teeth

Of course, while Invisalign can be used to treat a variety of orthodontic issues, it’s important to note that it can't effectively treat all problems. Sometimes, more complicated tooth or jaw movements are better suited for traditional braces, which is something that we can discuss during your consultation.


I’m interested in Invisalign. What’s the next step?

The next step involves a smile examination and discussion of treatment goals at our Jacksonville Beach so that we can determine whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign treatment.

When you come in for your consultation, we will ask you questions about what you wish to correct with Invisalign. From there, we will examine your mouth to make sure everything looks healthy. If you are a good candidate for treatment, the next step is to take molds of your teeth and to map out your treatment plan so you can get started!
