It’s estimated that one third of today’s orthodontic patients are over 18. Treatments typically take longer than those for teenage patients, but still yield great results.

While the smile and confidence that come along with orthodontic treatment can be enough of a change for many, the benefits go much further. In general, straight teeth are easier to clean and less prone to decay. Correcting misalignment may also help to alleviate other health concerns.

Virtually unnoticeable new alternatives to traditional metal braces are further tipping the scales in favour of treatment for adults. There have been great advances in adult braces technology.

Our office offers a range of treatment options, including:

Metal (traditional) braces – a metal bracket affixed to each tooth, attached to an arch wire with tiny rubber bands (ligatures) or tiny wires. The orthodontist adjusts the arch wire every few weeks to gradually move teeth.

Ceramic Brackets – tooth-coloured and used with clear ligatures for a much more discreet look. The system is otherwise the same.

Self-Ligating Braces – use brackets that fasten to the arch wire without ligatures, offering a discreet look and generally requiring fewer adjustment appointments over the course of treatment.

Invisalign treatment isn’t braces at all, but a series of custom-molded clear aligners that are virtually invisible when worn.
