Though orthodontic work is generally associated with children and teenagers, adult orthodontic patients have increased in recent years. This trend is expected to grow as treatment options become more flexible and less noticeable. But why are adults seeking treatment, and what type of braces are best for adults? Cowan & Whitaker Orthodontics can answer this question!
There are a few reasons why an adult would be a great orthodontic candidate.
Improving one or more of the above with orthodontic work can significantly boost your quality of life!
At Cowan & Whitaker Orthodontics, we proudly offer multiple non-invasive treatment routes.
If you desire braces but don’t want anyone to know you have any, Invisalign clear aligners are for you! These braces are best for adults with mild to medium bite connection needs. Clear aligners are removable, custom-made trays that allow the most flexibility for patients because you do not have to change your diet or oral hygiene routine.
This traditional go-to is known for its ability to fix even the most complex orthodontic problems. Modern technology has made metal braces more efficient and comfortable than ever. Their durability makes them the best choice for most lifestyles and needs, though you must change your diet and oral hygiene routine because they are not removable.
These are identical to metal braces in every way except for their materials! Clear braces use brackets made of a polycrystalline ceramic material, which is less durable than its metal predecessor. However, they are still strong enough to address severe orthodontic cases! These are best for adults who don’t qualify for Invisalign but don’t like the look of metal braces.
No matter why you want braces in adulthood, Cowan & Whitaker Orthodontics can help! Schedule your free consultation with us in Tuscaloosa to learn more about the options available and which is best for you!
