Get Started

A lot of adults today think they have missed their opportunity to get straight, beautiful teeth. Many of them believe that they should have worn orthodontic braces during childhood, and now that they're adults, they have lost their chance. Little do they know orthodontic braces are available to them to address teeth or jaw alignment problems and attain a healthy, gorgeous smile.

Getting dental braces is not a foreign idea if the patient is a child. But for adults, it may seem like an unfamiliar concept. Today, adult braces are very popular. These dental appliances are widely used to correct a variety of dental issues like crooked teeth, bite abnormalities, overcrowding of teeth and jaw irregularities.

Without proper orthodontic intervention, these aforementioned problems can increase the risk of gum disease, dental cavities, ear pain, chewing difficulties, headaches and speech problems.

Forget bulky metal braces that are very inconvenient to use. Did you know there are plenty of less noticeable teeth-straightening options today? Here are some of the popular alternatives to old-fashioned braces that adults can use:

Clear Ceramic Braces: With brackets made of tooth-colored porcelain, these braces are similar to conventional orthodontic braces. The only difference is they are barely visible; only the connecting wires are apparent.

Lingual Braces: Positioned at the back of the teeth, these braces are imperceptible. However, they can be irritating to the tongue since these braces are placed facing the tongue.

Clear Acrylic Braces: These removable braces are virtually invisible, can be custom-fitted and are easy to clean.

The duration of wearing orthodontic braces largely depends on the severity of the jaw or teeth irregularities. On average, adult patients are required to wear these dental appliances for two years.

If you're interested in wearing braces, learn about your options with an orthodontist.
