Orthodontics for Adults Surrey
The Orthodontists at Maduke Bulat specialize in Orthodontics for Adults in Surrey / Delta / White Rock area of Greater Vancouver
Are you an adult considering orthodontics to straighten your teeth?
Healthy teeth can be moved at any age. The Canadian Association of Orthodontics suggests that 1 in 4 patients seeking orthodontic care is over the age of 21. More adults than ever are choosing to straighten their teeth. Braces worn by adults into the ages of 50’s and 60’s is not uncommon.
At Maduke Bulat, we are committed to providing quality care and the individual attention you need if you are an adult seeking braces.
Braces for Adults: What are the Options?
Adults seeking aligned teeth today have many different treatment options. In the past, the idea of visible metal braces may have discouraged you from considering orthodontics, however, now there are a variety of options available including ceramic braces & Invisalign.
The health of your teeth, gums and supporting bones will help determine what type of treatment will be best for you. We will work closely with you to come up with a solution that will suit your lifestyle and budget.
Why should an adult consider orthodontics?
Orthodontic treatment, at any age, is always a change for the better. Many adults are seeking orthodontics to make their appearance and overall oral health better.
An adult may consider getting braces if:
- The teeth are overly crowded or spaced apart
- They wore braces as a teen and their teeth have shifted, or their treatment wasn’t complete
- They are experiencing problems with their bite
- They simply desire straight teeth
Braces vs Invisalign for adults.
Depending on the complexity of your situation, instead of braces, Invisalign may be a solution for adults wanting orthodontic treatment. The Invisalign system is a series of clear plastic aligners that gently and gradually move your teeth into position. Invisalign is a popular option because it is convenient and comfortable for most adults. Wearing Invisalign enables you to work and not feel self-conscious about your orthodontic treatment.
Any adult with a busy lifestyle can have Invisalign and be assured that they can carry on with their daily routine.

What is the estimated length of orthtodontics treatment?
When is the best time to begin treatment?
What are the costs of orthodontic treatments, and what financial arrangements are available?
If orthodontics treatment is indicated, we will need to take diagnostic records to determine the best approach. These would consist of plaster study moulds of the teeth as well as x-rays and photos of your face and teeth. Most times we can accommodate a records appointment within this initial consultation if required. Please call our front desk staff to arrange an appointment.
During the course of orthodontic treatment at Maduke-Bulat, we encourage patients to regularly visit our Surrey office with their families, parents and siblings to observe and support the process.
Ortho for Children
Children’s braces are best determined earlier than later. It’s best for the orthodontist to see children by age 7 to advise if orthodontic treatment is required and the best time for that patient to be treated.
