Nearly one third of current orthodontic patients are adults. With modern advancements, braces for adults have become incredibly comfortable, and treatment time is shorter than ever.
At Providence Dental, we provide versatile and effective braces for adults. You can learn more about your options by reading on below.
How Can I Benefit from Adult Orthodontics?
It’s never too late to create a beautiful smile with braces for adults. When you correct crooked and unsightly teeth, you will enjoy benefits like:
- Reduced risk of tooth decay
- Decreased likelihood of advanced gum disease
- Better-functioning bite and reduced TMJ pain
- Elevated confidence and self-esteem
- Enhanced social interactions and overall quality of life
Traditional Metal Braces for Adults
Metal braces have come a long way in recent years. They are smaller and more comfortable than the original “train track” brackets.
Metal braces are the ideal adult orthodontics for some patients. They do not stain easily and are more sturdy than other braces options. They are also powerful and capable of improving almost any smile flaw.
Traditional braces for adults are not removable, so you can rest assured that your smile is constantly progressing. You won’t have to keep track of removable aligners.
What are my Clear Braces Options?
If you are interested in discreet clear braces, you can choose from clear wire braces or Invisalign aligner therapy. Clear wire braces have all of the same perks as traditional braces, but they are designed to blend in with the teeth.
Invisalign clear braces are virtually undetectable, and they are also removable. Invisalign is often referred to as “braces for adults” because they offer extreme convenience. You can remove your aligners at any moment to eat, drink, or clean your teeth.
Dr. Bollu has advanced training in adult orthodontics. He provides late and weekend hours to accommodate even the busiest patients.
