More adults are seeking orthodontic treatment, perhaps because they never had the opportunity as a child or because of an orthodontic relapse. Whatever the reason, adult braces, for example Invisalign can discreetly and effectively straighten teeth. We can also provide extremely nice fixed braces that have clear brackets and extremely thin wires.
An initial consultation will allow you to discover much more about adult orthodontics and all suitable options. Our dentist can carefully assess your teeth and jaws, including your occlusion, which is the relationship between your upper and lower teeth. This will allow us to determine which options will work best for you. If the problems requiring correction are quite straightforward, a removable brace such as Invisalign may work well for you. Invisalign uses clear removable aligners that fit tightly over your teeth. These gently move your teeth into positions pre-determined during your treatment plan. More complex problems may require correction with fixed braces. If this is the case, there is no need to be concerned as modern fixed braces are very discreet and can provide wonderful results.
This depends on the complexity of your treatment. Some orthodontic problems are very quick to correct and you may complete treatment within just a few months. More complicated problems affecting your occlusion will take longer.
