How treatment from your orthodontist in Jacksonville Beach, FL, can give you an outstanding smile
It’s important to have an outstanding smile, and one of the factors that makes a smile outstanding is having straight teeth. You may think orthodontics is just for teenagers. In fact, it’s become a popular treatment for adults too. The variety of orthodontic options has made achieving a straight smile easier, more comfortable, and more affordable than ever.
Dr. Josh Goldknopf at The Brace Place Orthodontics can give you the outstanding smile you deserve. He has two convenient office locations in Jacksonville Beach, and Ponte Vedra, FL, to help you and your smile.
Let’s take a look at some of the orthodontic options you can choose from:
- Braces, which consist of traditional brackets and wires; this is the tried-and-true method of orthodontic treatment. It’s what you think of when you consider orthodontic treatment. Today’s braces are more comfortable, more discreet, and more beautiful. You can choose from:
- Traditional metal brackets and wires
- Ceramic (tooth-colored) brackets and clear wires
- Lingual braces, which are attached to the back surfaces of your teeth
Aligners, which are custom-made appliances of clear plastic; you receive a set of aligners, which you wear for 2 weeks, and then you move on to a new set of aligners, which you also wear for 2 weeks. You change aligners every 2 weeks until your treatment is complete, which usually takes between 9 and 15 months. Aligners have advantages like these:
- Comfort, because they have no sharp parts to irritate tissue
- Beauty, because they are clear and virtually undetectable to people around you
- Convenience, because you can remove them to eat and to brush and floss your teeth
A straight smile can enhance your appearance, and improve your chewing ability. A straight smile also decreases wear-and-tear on your teeth and your jaws. Fortunately, you can achieve a straight smile easily.
