Trends in Orthodontics for Adult Patients

June 29, 2012

As orthodontic treatment technology improves, adults are finding it easier and more convenient to achieve a beautiful smile than ever before. Professional working adults may have worried in the past about braces, because older orthodontic systems proved to be bulky and uncomfortable. However, today’s solutions for straighter teeth and jaw alignment are aesthetically pleasing and relatively low maintenance. Here is a look at a few of the orthodontic treatments available to adult patients :


The Invisalign treatment plan uses a series of customized clear liners that fit over the teeth to gently move teeth into their ideal positions. Invisalign liners are undetectable when they are in, and they can be easily removed to eat and brush the teeth. The treatment system uses no brackets, wires, or metal to create a better smile.

Damon Braces

By revolutionizing the design of the brace bracket, the Damon system has made braces much more comfortable. The teeth are moved gently and quickly, so treatment time is reduced compared to that of traditional braces. Damon braces are available in clear styles, which blend beautifully into the smile so they are only noticeable from close up.

Incognito Braces

The Incognito system is a completely custom orthodontic treatment that utilizes brackets that fit onto the back of your upper and lower teeth. The braces are visually undetectable, but they work effectively to move the teeth and create a more pleasing smile. Plus, Incognito braces have a minimal disturbance of your speech, as they blend so well into your oral anatomy.
