Which Adult Braces Are Right for You?

posted in: Orthodontics | 0

Stop what you’re doing and look in the mirror. Now, smile.

Do you show your teeth when you smile? If you hide your teeth because of gaps or crookedness, it’s time for a confidence boost. You’re never too old to feel great about yourself, so you’re never too old for teeth straightening.

Getting braces as an adult can seem daunting. Will your coworkers still take you seriously? Will your teenage son get matching brackets just to spite you (or vice versa)? Adult braces aren’t that scary, we promise. Dental technology has advanced so much, there are now options for clear or invisible braces and aligners. It’s like magic. Are you ready for the best part? Most of these methods don’t take as long as traditional orthodontics do.


Which Adult Braces are Right for You?

Here at Pacific Sky Dental, we offer two teeth straightening methods that are suitable for adults and young adults, depending on the degree of straightening desired.

Invisalign Aligner Therapy

Invisalign Aligner Therapy

Invisalign is a mild straightening treatment. Using a series of clear, custom-made aligners, Invisalign repositions your teeth over time to give you a beautifully straight smile. If you’re getting ready to go out for dinner or would rather not wear your aligner while playing rugby, just pop it out for a few hours. As long as you wear it approximately 20 hours a day, you’ll get noticeable results.
