At Crovatto & Edwards Family Dentistry, we strongly believe that it’s never too late for patients to pursue the smile improvements of their dreams. If you are frustrated with misaligned teeth or gaps in your smile, talk to our dentists about the possibility of orthodontic treatment.
Contrary to popular belief, braces aren’t just for children – their use at all ages can have very positive benefits on a person’s self-confidence, dental health, oral function, and more. For more image-conscious patients, we also offer Invisalign® treatment as a subtler and more aesthetic alternative. To explore the options for yourself or a loved one, contact our Orange Park, FL practice today.
Metal braces have been around for many years now, and they’re still a reliably effective method for correcting even the most complex cases of crooked teeth, overcrowding, misaligned bites, and more. Adults and children alike can be good candidates for this type of treatment, which relies on brackets and wires to gradually guide teeth towards their desired positioning. Elastics are used to attach the two together, which come in a variety of fun colors that can be used to showcase the patient’s one-of-a-kind personality!
Of course, we understand that many adults in the professional world don’t like the idea of wearing noticeable metal braces for a significant period of time. That’s why Dr. Crovatto and Dr. Edwards also offer Invisalign, which is an image-friendly alternative that can be used to correct mild to moderate orthodontic concerns. Instead of dark-colored wires and brackets, patients will wear clear, comfortable aligners that are barely noticeable in the mouth. Better yet, the aligners are removable, which means you can continue to enjoy your regular diet and oral hygiene routine without restrictions.
