Invisible Braces–Not Just for Kids!

Categories: Orthodontics

invisalign St. AugustineHave you spent your whole adult life wanting to straighten your teeth? Thanks to recent advancements in the field of orthodontia, no teenager or adult needs to have a mouthful of metal.  The experienced staff at Christopher Henry, DMD will work with you to come up with a plan.

We offer Invisalign, a popular brand of clear braces designed to correct your bite without covering up your teeth. Over a period of several months, your teeth slowly shift in your mouth without anyone really noticing. Our orthodontists take care to ensure you’re comfortable and that the procedure is progressing as planned.

As many of our patients can attest, we have a high success rate when it comes to teeth straightening procedures. Some adults may think they don’t need procedures to correct their “malocclusion” (aka “bad bite”), but crooked or crowded teeth can lead to tooth decay and other serious dental health issues. If your pre-teen or teenager is showing signs of misaligned teeth, schedule a consultation with us as soon as possible. Braces are an extremely effective treatment when administered early. Most adult teeth appear in children between the ages of 6 and 12.

Not sure if braces are the type of orthodontic procedure you need? No worries! We also fit patients with retainers and perform orthognathic surgery (corrective jaw surgery). This procedure corrects malformed jaw bones. Patients with this condition often suffer from problems with eating, breathing or talking.

When it’s determined that orthodontia is needed, your family dentist may refer you to a specialist. We will work with your insurance and health care providers to come up with a plan that is as affordable as it is convenient. Call us at 904-342-3684 today to schedule a consultation. Feel free to let us know if you have any questions or concerns. We look forward to hearing from you?
