straighten my teethPatient question: I’d like to straighten my teeth, but I’m embarrassed to have braces as an adult. What do you suggest? 

Today people see adults wearing braces as doing something proactive for their oral health.

Having straight teeth and a better bite means less wear, cracking or damage of teeth, fewer fillings throughout your life and healthier jaw joints in later life.

Straighten my teeth:

Straighter teeth are also easier to keep clean, and cleaner teeth can mean less chance of gum disease and dental decay.

Orthodontic treatment has come a long way since the days of metal braces; today, contemporary orthodontic treatments are designed to be as unobtrusive and practical as possible so patients can get on with their lives… with confidence.

While metal braces are still an extremely effective way of straightening teeth and achieving a perfect smile, orthodontic treatment options for adults now include Ceramic Braces, Lingual (inside) Braces and Clear Aligners (for example Invisalign / Clear Correct and others).

Whether you’re considering traditional braces or an alternative to braces, only an orthodontist has the training, experience and expert knowledge to be able to offer you the full suite of treatment options and give you the confidence you’re in the best hands.
