What are Adult Braces?

Adult braces refer to orthodontic appliances designed for individuals who wish to align their teeth and improve their smile aesthetics in adulthood. They address various concerns, such as overcrowding, gaps, crooked teeth, and bite irregularities.

Benefits of Adult Braces

By choosing adult braces, you open the door to numerous advantages, both cosmetic and functional. These benefits include:

  • Enhanced smile aesthetics

  • Improved oral health and hygiene

  • Proper bite alignment

  • Reduced risk of tooth decay and gum disease

  • Increased self-confidence and self-esteem

Types of Adult Braces

When it comes to adult braces, different options are available based on individual preferences and requirements. Let’s explore the most common types:

Metal braces are the traditional orthodontic option, consisting of metal brackets and wires. They are durable, effective, and suitable for various dental conditions.

Ceramic braces offer a more discreet alternative to metal braces. They blend in with your natural teeth due to their tooth-coloured brackets, making them less noticeable while still delivering effective results.

For those seeking ultimate discretion, lingual braces are a fantastic choice. These braces are placed on the back surface of your teeth, hiding them from view while straightening your smile.

Invisalign represents a revolutionary approach to orthodontic treatment. It utilizes a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually shift your teeth into proper alignment. Invisalign offers unmatched convenience and aesthetics.
