Should adults get braces?
Adult braces give you the chance to improve your smile and your oral health. Adults who want straighter teeth can get braces and go through a process similar to the one used to align teeth in teens and children.
Our braces can address:
While treatment for adolescents and adults is similar, some minor differences exist. Adults are at a higher risk for periodontal diseases, so we encourage careful cleaning, flossing and brushing during any treatment. Unlike children, adults have fully developed jaws, so we may apply different techniques to address jaw issues.
Adult metal braces are a classic option for straightening teeth and adjusting your bite. This type uses metal brackets attached to metal wires with colored rubber bands. You will come into the office every few weeks or months so we can reposition the wire, which moves your teeth gradually.
Our adult clear braces function like metal braces, only they use tooth-colored ceramic brackets to minimize their appearance. They can treat a variety of orthodontic issues with less metal.
