Short-Term Orthodontics Can Quickly Improve Your Life

Short-Term Orthodontics Can Quickly Improve Your Life

Hello and welcome back to our oral health blog!

If you live in Florida, we are more than ready to improve your life through modern dentistry. Not only do we have several highly experienced dentists around here, we also have multiple specialists among us in order to make sure you will never be forced to visit a new and unknown office that handles the “outsourced” procedures. You can trust that won’t ever happen at Clearwater Dental Associates. Our oral surgeon, endodontist, periodontist, and orthodontist will be able to handle your ever-evolving needs!

Speaking of the later, do you have any issues that you would like to straighten out once and for all?

We can certainly help you get the smile you want, even if you are well beyond your teenage years. Not surprisingly, we still offer classic metal braces that can tackle most problems, especially in adolescent patients. That said, that treatment is not without its own disadvantages, especially for certain populations who don’t have time for the hassles associated with traditional orthodontics.

That’s why, for adults who are interested getting treatment, we also offer two forward-looking systems that can deliver great results without all the embarrassment of wearing metal brackets and wires for two or more long years.


Invisalign brings a new approach to shifting adult teeth into proper position. This system works through a series of clear, plastic aligners, that are worn in short-term increments for about one year.

Rather than insisting that you come in for monthly tune-ups to your hardware, you will just need to replace each aligner with the next in the series, on your own every two weeks or so. That means no unnecessary time off of work.

Plus, Invisalign aligners will fit snugly over your teeth without causing any discomfort or mouth sores, thus eliminating the need for special waxes. They can be popped out any time you want a snack, which means you don’t need to change your diet along the way, either.

With Invisalign, cleaning your gear is a snap! You just run your aligners under lukewarm water. You won’t have to carry around special tools to dig out food that gets stuck in your metal since there is no metal.

Because they are more or less invisible , the aligners won’t be noticed any anyone at your work or anywhere else for that matter. This means that your treatment won’t bring on unwanted nicknames or rude comments.

In 12 months or so, when treatment wraps up, you’ll have plenty to smile about.

We think Invisalign has a lot to offer. But we like to offer a lot of options so that our patients can find a program that matches their specific needs. That’s why we have another good treatment for adults to consider.

Incognito Braces

If you are an adult who has had to live with troublesome teeth, we have a solution that’s invisible, comfortable, and effective: Incognito Braces.

Unlike old school braces, Incognito Braces are actually placed on the back of your teeth, so there won’t be anything for people to stare at.

These braces are actually based on an impression of your teeth which means that they will rest comfortably in place and won’t poke or irritate your tongue.

In the end, they will still deliver the same great results as conventional braces. It is just an easier road to travel.

Make It Happen!

We hope you have been inspired to schedule your consultation with our team.
