When we think of braces, we often think of teenagers with metal brackets and wires in their mouths. Braces are not only for teenagers! There’s truly no age limit to undergo orthodontic treatment. Adults of all ages are seeking out ways to improve the appearance and health of their smiles.
The options for adult orthodontic treatment include metal braces, clear braces, and clear aligners (Invisalign). The type of treatment that is recommended and the length of time depends on the patient’s bite.
If you are a candidate for braces and Invisalign, it is up to you which option you go with. Invisalign are clear aligners that are worn full time, and this option allows you to receive orthodontic treatment with minimal disruption to your everyday life. Compliance is an important aspect in order for this treatment option to be successful.
If you feel that you would be better with something that you don’t have to remove and replace, then braces are your best treatment option. Metal or clear braces are available. Any treatment option you choose will improve your smile and bite, and the choice you go with depends on your personality, lifestyle, and preference.
