Your St. Augustine Orthodontist
Alan R. Ossi, DMD, MS
It has been an honor and pleasure working with so many families in Jacksonville and St. Johns County improving smiles since 2000. Adults and parents of children trust me with their care, and I don’t take that for granted. I am committed to continue creating beautiful smiles in a fun and relaxing environment.
I was born and raised in Jacksonville in the same part of town in which my father was brought up. He practiced orthodontics for over 40 years in the Jacksonville San Marco area.
I have continued his reputation of predictable, conservative, and honest treatment plans for my patients. I love my hometown and enjoy caring for its family and residents.
St. Augustine Braces
Traditional braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. They're made out of metal or ceramic brackets that are attached to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. These brackets, wires, and bands work together to apply the gentle pressure that will gradually move the teeth into the positions we want them to be in if you have regular adjustments with Dr. Ossi.
St. Augustine braces are an excellent choice for correcting complex tooth issues. Because they can sometimes work faster at aligning teeth and closing gaps than other treatments might, overall treatment time may be slightly reduced. Braces don't need some of the more complex technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, making Jacksonville braces a cost-effective orthodontic option.
St. Augustine Invisalign
Invisalign is incredibly popular with both patients and orthodontists and is the top alternative to traditional braces. Instead of brackets and bands, Jacksonville Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and customized to fit snugly over your teeth. In order to keep your teeth moving in the direction you want them to, you'll generally need to switch your invisible trays out every 1-2 weeks for the next in the series. The Invisalign system can only work if the recommended guidelines are followed exactly! Aligners should be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment. If patients neglect to wear the aligners as directed, it can impede the results and also add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign is at its most efficient when correcting many of the most common orthodontic issues. For some complex cases, Invisalign may not be a good option. A free consultation with Ossi Orthodontics will allow Dr. Ossi to determine your Invisalign eligibility.
