Which Braces are Best for Adult Patients?

It is not just teenagers getting braces these days, but now many adults are visiting the orthodontist to have their teeth examined and straightened. The popularity of adult braces and orthodontics may be due to the number of different treatment options now available. Often, patients are asking which braces are best for adult patients? While only your orthodontist can give you a personalized answer for your teeth, there are a few advantages of choosing clear braces for adults, such as Invisalign.

Why go With Invisalign?

Invisalign braces are a series of clear plastic aligners that can treat a wide range of orthodontic issues. As previously mentioned, these aligners are very discreet, and most people will not even be aware that someone is wearing one.

Invisalign braces are also removable. There are a few advantages to this. The removability allows you to keep up the same high level of dental hygiene without worrying about flossing and brushing around metal brackets and wires. Also, being able to remove Invisalign braces means you can remove them when eating, meaning you do not have to avoid hard or sticky foods that could damage conventional wire braces.

Invisalign braces have to be worn 22 hours per day to be effective. If you think you may struggle to consistently wear the aligner, then it may not be the best option for you.

If you are after the smile you have always wanted, then now may be the time to consider getting adult braces such as Invisalign. Make an appointment with Maduke Bulat today to determine if Invisalign, or other adult brace options are right for you.
