At Carlyle Orthodontics you can expect orthodontic solutions for the whole family in that Carlyle Orthodontics offers braces for kids, teens, and even adults. A variety of orthodontic solutions are available.

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that parents of kids ages 7 and older might want to consider braces, as many permanent teeth including molars may have already come in.

It’s usually easier to make incremental adjustments along a child’s natural developmental path because issues like crowding, spacing, and crossbites are often easier to address early.

That said, adult braces and the hugely popular Invisalign braces are available to residents in Lake Nona and the surrounding central Florida region. It’s never too late to achieve a beautiful smile!

A Range of Customized Orthodontic Solutions 

The most popular type of braces are metal braces, but Carlyle Orthodontics offers clear braces and Invisalign as well.

Metal, or traditional, braces are great at addressing overcrowding issues, which can cause a malocclusion or misalignment of teeth and difficulties with chewing and biting.

The interesting thing about metal braces that many people don’t know is that—partly because metal braces are made of high-grade stainless steel—you can expect a shorter overall treatment period. Metal braces are that effective, and they’re now more discrete, comfortable, and affordable than ever thanks to recent advances in orthodontics.

In fact, metal braces are usually considered the most affordable option when it comes to braces for most patients. Having said that, Carlyle Orthodontics works with you to find the payment plan that matches your needs.

TRICARE, Cigna, and Delta Dental are all accepted. Contact Carlyle Orthodontics to find out if your current insurance will cover braces and orthodontics treatment.

Invisalign and Clear Braces

The Invisalign system that uses customized clear aligners to gradually improve your smile is an option seemingly every adult patient has questions about. Read more about Invisalign here.

Clear braces are great too because they’re effective and made from a discrete translucent (or transparent) biocompatible material that derives from ceramic. A lot of people have seen clear braces and appreciate the chance to really own a beautiful smile.

Clear braces are the most popular kind of braces for adults, according to Colgate, because they are very discrete and can be removed between meals or to brush and floss your teeth.

Another benefit to clear braces is that they can reduce the chances of developing gum disease since straighter teeth should mean fewer chances for food particles and plaque to get stuck in your teeth’s crevices.

Clear braces can also help ensure a beautiful smile for life as reducing malocclusion or misalignment can mean less wear and tear on your teeth over time.In effect, clear braces could mean lowering your chances of developing gum disease and wearing down your teeth because of misalignment issues. It’s a wonderful chance to invest in a beautiful smile for life!
