The American Association of Orthodontists reports that 20 percent of Americans have poor dental bites--that is, their teeth do not meet together properly. At The Brace Place Orthodontics in Jacksonville Beach, FL, your orthodontist, Dr. Josh Goldknopf, offers adults just like you a sure way to a proper, healthy bite. It's called Invisalign, the discreet path to straighten your smile.

Crooked teeth

This is the coverall term for a smile that is gapped, crowded or has a variety of occlusal issues, such as deep bite, open bite, crossbite, overbite, and underbite. Besides being hard to clean and more prone to decay and periodontal problems, misaligned smiles are embarrassing. Yet, older teens and adults alike can hesitate to take on obvious metal braces.

So, Dr. Goldknopf and thousands of orthodontists across the world offer clear Invisalign aligners. These removable appliances are a sure, comfortable, and unnoticeable way to achieve smile goals. Yet, no one but you and your dentist will know you wear them.

What exactly is Invisalign?

FDA-approved in the late 1990s, Invisalign straightens a wide range of smile alignment issues. Composed of a series of clear trays custom-made from patented SmartTrack acrylic, the Invisalign system moves teeth slowly but surely into proper positions. Yes, they work just as conventional braces do but without the complex adjustments, oral irritations, and dietary changes metal brackets and wires required.

Most of Dr. Goldknopf's patients wear 18 to 30 aligner pairs on top and bottom teeth, spaced about two weeks apart. They stop into The Brace Place Orthodontics every month for a progress check-up. Along the way, they wear their aligners 20 to 22 hours a day, taking them out to brush, floss, and eat their meals. That's right. The aligners are completely removable.

Your new smile

Your orthodontist in Jacksonville, FL, likely will ask you to wear a retaining device after your finished treatment. Invisalign smiles finish in about one year or so--a shorter treatment time than conventional braces.

There are so many advantages
