There are many benefits to adults having orthodontic treatment. Some of these benefits can be:
In some of these cases, the orthodontist will need to work with other specialists such as Periodontists (gum specialists), Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, or Prosthodontists (implants/crowns/veneer specialists) to achieve the best result.
Understandably, many adults can be concerned about the appearance of traditional metal braces. Invisalign™ sequential plastic aligners can be a great alternative to braces. For more complex cases, where braces are the most suitable option, we offer Damon Clear ™ tooth coloured ceramic braces.
