Available Treatment Options for Adults
If the idea of wearing traditional metal braces is keeping you from a beautiful set of teeth, then you’ll be glad to know that advancements in modern orthodontics mean you now have multiple options. In addition to traditional metal braces, we offer options below for adults who prefer a more discreet treatment method.
Clear Braces – Designed to work just like traditional metal braces, but they are made with clear or tooth-colored pieces that fit on your teeth so that the braces are nearly undetectable.
InvisalignⓇ Clear Aligners – Wearing clear teeth aligners is a virtually undetectable way of straightening your teeth. With this form of invisible treatment, you are able to hide your smile transformation, but not your smile! Additionally, the clear aligners are removable so you can eat what you want and maintain your oral health with ease.
Advanced Braces – Forestadent self-ligating brackets are firmly affixed to your teeth with a strong, safe adhesive. They are small and utilize a locking-door mechanism to hold the wire in place instead of using fragile rubber bands. With smaller brackets and no bands, less of your smile is obstructed, allowing you to smile confidently throughout your treatment.
