Today, more and more adults are choosing orthodontic treatment to create a healthier, more attractive smile. And many professionals choose orthodontic treatment to increase their self-confidence on the job.
At Smile Team Orthodontics, we're treating more and more adult patients who have decided they still want to achieve their dream smile, no matter what their age. And we're getting great results too. All of our orthodontic treatments are suitable for adult cases. We can recommend which one you'd benefit the most from at your initial assessment.
Types of adult orthodontic treatment
Invisalign has been created with adults in mind. This innovative method of treatment uses small, clear, plastic aligners to move teeth into the desired position. The aligners are comfortable to wear, removable, virtually invisible and effective.
Invisalign aligners are a registered medical device, you should always read and follow the label and the instructions of your treating orthodontist.
Incognito lingual braces are another popular treatment among adult patients. Fitted to the inside surface of your teeth, these braces are virtually invisible. Although they will affect speech for the first couple of days, once your mouth has grown accustomed to the appliance you won't even notice you're wearing them - and neither will anyone else!
Clear (ceramic) braces are another effective orthodontic treatment option for adults. They work in exactly the same way as traditional metal braces do, but the ceramic brackets blend in with the natural colour of your teeth, meaning they're less noticeable than the original appliance.
Why use adult braces?
As an adult, choosing to embark on an orthodontic treatment plan is about much more than perfecting your smile. Depending on the nature of your misalignment, you could also make chewing easier, improve speech and reduce pain.
At Smile Team we believe it's never too late to try to correct a misaligned smile and we specialise in adult orthodontics. We understand that adults may shy away from braces because they are conscious of their appearance, so we provide a range of discreet orthodontic options.
Braces and Invisalign for adults
If you’re seeking Invisalign for adults, you’ve come to the right place – Smile Team has over 50 years experience in teeth straightening and is recognised as a Diamond Invisalign provider. Invisalign is a revolutionary method of teeth straightening, consisting of a series of completely clear custom-fit braces that fit over your teeth. Because it’s almost invisible, Invisalign is a popular choice for adults.
If Invisalign isn’t right for you, we offer other adult braces:
- Traditional metal braces
- Clear braces, which have a tooth-like colour
- Lingual braces, which rest behind your teeth instead of over them
If you have an idea of the type of braces you want, we’re happy to help you reach your treatment goals. However, after a detailed consultation, we may suggest an alternative fitting to better suit your clinical requirements.
Choosing the right braces
Finding the right braces for you is a combination of personal preference and clinical suitability. Invisalign for adults is the most popular choice but while it’s effective in treating many types of misalignment, it won't tackle all adult orthodontic problems. Your orthodontist is happy to discuss your preference for certain types of braces, and if your first choice isn’t appropriate, they will be able to suggest an alternative to suit you.
