Why Straighten the Teeth

A beautiful smile boosts your self-confidence and improves aesthetics. In addition, straightening the teeth can help prevent a variety of dental problems. Misaligned teeth may contribute to periodontitis, Temporomandibular Disorder (TMJ), tooth injuries, and uneven wear. We can show you how teeth can be straightened using fixed braces or customized aligning trays. Orthodontic braces are worn for a period of time and removed when treatment is complete. Aligning trays are removable.

Invisalign Invisible Braces

If the idea of wearing metal braces is discouraging you, Invisalign offers an alternative to straighten the teeth. This treatment option uses a series of custom aligning trays to change the configuration of the teeth. Invisalign corrects the same problems as metal braces, but the trays are nearly invisible and can be removed for eating, drinking, and oral hygiene.

The problems that can be corrected with Invisalign include:

  • Overcrowding
  • Cross bite
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Gaps between teeth

Dr. Kinsey begins by taking 3D images of the teeth and jaw to create a custom treatment plan and a custom set of aligners. The number of aligners varies from patient to patient, but between 20 and 29 sets is the usual range. About every two weeks, you will switch to the next set of aligners in the series to gradually and gently reposition the teeth. This treatment method is known for being comfortable and effective. The development of Invisalign aligning trays has revolutionized orthodontics in St. Augustine and across the country. Dr. Kinsey will assess your smile and recommend the most effective treatment method for your unique needs.
