Alternative Adult Orthodontics

July 22, 2012

Some adults may feel embarrass to wear braces. For one, it may limit the kind and amount of food you can eat. Gone are the days when conventional braces were your only option to straighten misaligned and crooked teeth. Here are two alternative adult orthodontics solutions allowing you to do the same, but in an unconventional and discreet way.


These dental appliances are modern alternatives to conventional braces. Invisalign is a type of clear tooth aligner intended for people who find conventional metal braces, brackets, and wires unattractive. It allows you to straighten teeth in the most discreet way possible.

Invisalign treatment involves using aligner trays made of smooth, comfortable, and practically invisible plastic material worn over the teeth. One of the biggest draws to this dental appliance is it is removable, allowing you to eat, clean, and brush your teeth easily. It offers a level of flexibility and convenience other orthodontic services cannot.

Ideal as it sounds, however, Invisalign may not be a viable solution for all dental cases. Consult with your dentist to learn if you would make a viable candidate for this custom solution.

Clear Ceramic Braces

These dental appliances are also alternatives to traditional metal and bulky orthodontics. These have practically the same benefits, but also incorporate cosmetic elements. The transparent material blends in with any natural teeth color, making it a more discreet teeth-straightening solution. This adult orthodontics solution is also highly durable. Brackets rarely break and usually boast of anti-staining properties.

Think of these two alternatives if you plan to straighten your teeth. They are great choices allowing you to improve teeth alignment in a discreet and easy manner. Call us today for more information on orthodontic options that will best suit your condition.
