Braces: They’re Not Just For Kids

Orthodontics Lakeland, FLHaving straight and aligned teeth is not only a cosmetic preference but a healthy choice as well. A straight smile diminishes the chance of developing TMJ or other tooth and gum problems throughout one’s life. For adults who did not have braces as children and feel like they need them now, there are some great options available. In fact, the amount of adults opting for orthodontic care continues to increase. Here we will discuss what your options are and what to expect to help you achieve a straight smile!

Damon Braces

Damon braces are also called “fast braces” because they are more efficient at moving the teeth into the proper position. This gentle and effective system uses wires that require less force to move the teeth than traditional steel wire. Children, as well as adults, are great candidates for Damon braces if they have moderate to severely crowded teeth. Damon braces are effective because the brackets slide on soft wires that create nearly zero friction. This allows the teeth to slide into place more easily and comfortably.


For those adults who want to make their orthodontic care less obvious, Invisalign may be the right choice. Invisalign stands as an excellent alternative to traditional braces. At Agnini Family Dental, we use state of art equipment and imaging to create “invisible” plastic aligners that you switch out every few weeks. These aligners are produced to fit the exact mold of your mouth while gently moving your teeth in the direction they need to go for a straight smile.

With Invisalign, you can still eat food with ease, but make sure you avoid particularly sticky foods like caramel. Invisalign also allows for better at home care because they can be removed to allow you to floss and clean all sides and areas of the teeth. It is important to make sure that you wear your aligners on your teeth at least 20-22 hours per day.

Straighten Your Teeth Without Braces

Orthodontics Lakeland, FLStudies show that people with straighter teeth are more likely to get a job promotion and are perceived as more capable and confident. Maintaining a straight smile will also help guard against other dental issues that can form due to crooked teeth, like a bad bite or chipped tooth. With the help of Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth without metal braces.

What Invisalign Can Do For You

At Agnini Family Dental, we pride ourselves in using state of the art 3D computer imaging technology to create the invisible plastic aligners that will give you a straight smile. With Invisalign, you switch out your aligners about every two weeks. Every aligner you use is fabricated using unique specifications according to the size, shape, and needs of your teeth. These aligners will carefully and gradually move your teeth into their correct position. Of course, when we say “invisible” aligners we are referring to the fact that they are nearly imperceptible, but strong and effective enough to straighten out your teeth. You can remove your Invisalign inserts from your mouth when you eat or brush your teeth.

Am I a good candidate for Invisalign?
