Find out why more and more adults are turning to our Ponte Vedra and Jacksonville Beach, FL, Orthodontist for braces.

While most people think of braces and think that it’s only something that children and teens have to go through, this couldn’t be further bracesfrom the truth. In fact, many adults are able to get the smiles they want with help from orthodontic treatment. If you’ve ever wished that your smile was straighter and more aligned then it’s time to turn to our Jacksonville Beach, FL, orthodontist Dr. Josh Goldknopf to find out about your treatment options.

As an adult you could benefit from braces if you are dealing with:

  • Crowding
  • Crookedness
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Cross bites
  • Open bites
  • Gaps between teeth

Why should you straighten your smile?

Besides the obvious benefit of having a more attractive smile, a straighter smile is also easier to care for than a misaligned one. In fact, misaligned smiles are more likely to develop cavities because certain areas may be more challenging to clean properly.

Also, teeth that are misaligned may also take on more chewing and biting pressure, which can lead to cracks or fractures over time. By getting a straighter smile you can maintain better oral health and protect your teeth from potential damage.

What are my orthodontic options?

When it comes to getting braces adults have many options. The type of braces you choose will depend on the severity of the issue you want to treat. The most common types of braces include,

Metal braces: traditional metal brackets and wires that are bonded to the front of your teeth

Clear braces: a traditional bracket-and-wire system that uses clear material instead of stainless steel

Lingual braces: traditional braces that are bonded to the back of your teeth

Clear aligners: this includes Invisalign and other removable aligner systems

We know that most adults are keen to find an orthodontic treatment that fits into their lifestyle and is more discreet; fortunately, there are several options that can help. More and more adults are turning to clear aligners such as Invisalign to help straighten their smiles without having to wear brackets and wires. Instead, they are given several custom-made aligners that cover the teeth and apply just the perfect amount of pressure to shift teeth into their ideal position.
