Orthodontics for Children
Did you know that the American Association of Orthodontics suggests that children get an orthodontic evaluation by age 7? That's because finding and treating orthodontic issues early on can help prevent more severe problems from developing in the future.
Luckily, Ossi Orthodontics has a lot of options for kids when it comes to orthodontic treatment, like metal braces, clear braces, and clear aligners.
How We Help Your Child
Getting braces or other orthodontic treatments might make kids a little nervous. But at Ossi Orthodontics, our team is here to make the process as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
We'll work with you and your family to develop a customized treatment plan that fits your child’s specific needs and goals.
Ossi Orthodontics Has Options for Kids
Metal braces are a great choice for children because they’re affordable and work well. They consist of metal brackets and wires put on your child’s teeth and then adjusted over time to move them where they need to be.
Clear braces are similar to metal braces, but they’re made of clear or tooth-colored materials that make them less noticeable. Depending on your child’s orthodontic needs, Invisalign and other clear aligners may also be an option.
However, some orthodontists, including Dr. Ossi, may not recommend aligners as a treatment option for children.
These clear, plastic trays must be worn for 20 – 22 hours a day except when eating or brushing, which can be a lot for a young child to keep up with.
Orthodontics for Teens
Are you a teenager in Jacksonville or St. Augustine? Then you might consider starting regular orthodontic treatment.
That's because most of your permanent teeth have come in by now, which makes it easier to fix any orthodontic issues you might have.
What We Do for Teens
We get it — your teen has unique needs and concerns when it comes to orthodontic treatment. At Ossi Orthodontics, we've got many treatment options for teenagers, including:
- Metal braces: Traditional braces are a dependable and practical option for Jacksonville and St. Augustine teenagers. They're made up of metal brackets and wires that adjust over time to move your teen’s teeth where they need to be.
- Clear braces: Clear braces work like metal braces — and they’re especially great for teenagers who might be feeling self-conscious about their appearance.
- Clear aligners: Invisalign and other aligners are popular because they’re almost invisible, and your teen can take them out to eat and clean their teeth.
Dr. Ossi and our team of experts work closely with you and your teenager to develop a customized treatment plan for your teen’s needs and goals.
Plus, we're super flexible with scheduling to work around your teen’s busy school and extracurricular schedules.
Orthodontics for Adults
Did you know that orthodontic treatment isn't just for kids and teenagers? Lots of adults around Jacksonville and St. Augustine can benefit from it, too!
At Ossi Orthodontics, we know that you might be concerned about the appearance and convenience of orthodontic treatment as an adult.
Don’t worry — we’ve got you covered with a bunch of different treatment options to fit your lifestyle.
Metal & Clear Braces for Adults
Traditional metal braces might be a good fit if you're looking for something tried and true.
With metal braces, Dr. Ossi uses brackets and wires that he adjusts over the course of your treatment to gradually and comfortably move your teeth into place.
If you're feeling anxious about wearing metal braces, you might consider clear braces. Clear braces provide a comparable transparent alternative to conventional metal ones.
Clear Aligners for Adults
If you want something even more discreet, clear aligners from Dr. Ossi might be perfect for you. They're invisible and can be removed when you eat or clean your teeth — and even when you need to feel more confident during a big interview or presentation.
Plus, we'll work with you to come up with a customized treatment plan that fits your needs and goals.
