When we talk about braces, we often imagine the awkward adolescent years with huge brackets and wires on our teeth. Yet, this is not at all what braces look like today. We have a variety of innovative orthodontic appliances that are perfect for the working professional. Achieving a beautiful smile doesn’t have to add a burden to your busy schedule or appearance. With Invisalign and other virtually invisible braces, adult treatment is now more convenient and discreet than ever before!
Oral health problems are not exclusive to any age group. Even if you had braces as a child, it is very common for teeth to shift with age or injury. In addition to straightening your teeth, adult orthodontic treatment can provide many health benefits, as well as social and professional benefits, including:
- Preventing periodontal disease and gum disease
- Fixing jaw joint problems
- Correcting incorrect jaw positioning
- Boosting your self-esteem
Embrace the Options
The different types of braces and aligners we have employ varying methods on applying force to your teeth, but ultimately achieve the same goal. You can choose, based on personal preference and orthodontist recommendation, the braces that will best fit your needs and your teeth!
Clear braces are similar to in structure to your traditional metal braces, but are composed of ceramic and plastic. The clear coloring of the ceramic brackets make them virtually invisible, aside from the thin wire than runs through the brackets.
Lingual braces, also know as incognito braces, are metal braces that are applied to the back of your teeth, instead of the front. The adjustment period for lingual braces is typically longer than that with traditional metal or clear braces.
Invisalign treatment consists of a series of customized, virtually clear plastic trays that go over your teeth. The aligners are removable, so you can continue your regular oral hygiene routine and diet without special adjustments.
