Orthodontic Options

Tampa Invisible Braces

Welcome to my Tampa cosmetic dental blog. I’m Dr. Richard Kernagis of Kernagis Dental Excellence.

I have been practicing orthodontics since 2001. During this time, I have developed many rewarding relationships with my patients and staff members.

Many dental patients have chosen orthodontia to adjust crooked teeth. Children with less-than-perfect smiles often feel self-conscious about their teeth. It is extremely satisfying to help a child or teen obtain a smile they can be proud of. Attractive teeth boost self-esteem for individuals of all ages.

What type of braces are available?

  1. Self-ligating
  2. Self-ligating clear ceramic
  3. Invisalign
  4. In-Ovation–Mini-metal and Clear

We will help you choose the best kind for you.

How do braces work?

Braces exert force on the teeth to slowly move. As they move, new bone develops to anchor your teeth in their new, correct locations.

Self-ligating braces

Traditional braces have brackets and an archwire. The brackets are mounted to the teeth. The archwire is attached to the brackets. The archwire is shaped for your bite. With self-ligating braces, the archwire is connected to the brackets with a spring clip. This replaces the plastic color band necessary with old-school metal braces.

Invisalign

Invisalign uses clear aligners instead of metal or ceramic brackets. With Invisalign treatment, you switch aligners every couple of weeks as your teeth shift into place.

If you would like to consider teeth-straightening options, I invite you to schedule an orthodontic dental consultation by calling 813-321-3261
