Adult Braces: Your Options

invisalignredlipsSure, when you’re a kid the idea of wearing braces is a little bit scary but it’s not the end of the world. After all – half of your friends will probably be walking around with a mouth full of metal, too. However, once you have become an adult and are busy with friends, family, and school or a career, orthodontic treatment can seem too disruptive. Fortunately, we offer a variety of adult braces that can assist you in achieving the beautifully aligned smile you want (with minimal interference in your daily life).

Clear Braces

Are you suffering from misalignment that affects your entire smile? Improving this problem can result in a beautiful, straight smile and may also protect you from frustrating side effects like worn tooth surfaces and even jaw joint discomfort. The good news is that we offer clear adult braces, so you can enjoy orthodontic treatment without others noticing. We provide two systems, Invisalign or ClearCorrect. Each relies on the use of aligner trays crafted out of clear plastic. You will wear sets in a series until your teeth have shifted into their final alignment.

Accelerated Treatment

Is your alignment okay for the most part but the visible portion of your smile could use some improvement? Fortunately, we can offer accelerated treatment with a system called Six Month Smiles. In this case, you will wear clear brackets and wires, so few (if any) will notice you’re undergoing treatment. In addition, the course of treatment typically takes around six months. Using low-force technology, we will improve the beauty of your smile in a fraction of the time required of traditional braces.
