Am I a Candidate for Adult Braces?
Yes, you are absolutely a candidate for adult braces because the types of dental issues that they’re designed to correct can manifest themselves at almost any age. Likewise, we make it a point of pride to offer a wide array of orthodontic treatment options designed for all of our adult patients.
Not only do we serve patients who would like to re-straighten their teeth (as is common), but we also have solutions for people who have never had braces before as well. Your orthodontist will go over all of our treatment options with you well in advance so that you can make the best decision possible moving forward.
Types of Braces
All told, there are a few different types of braces for you to choose from:
Traditional Metal Braces
Here, a series of small metal brackets are attached to each one of your teeth that are then connected together via a metal wire. The strength of that wire is what pulls your teeth into the appropriate position given your end goals.
Ceramic braces work a lot like traditional metal braces but are a much more discreet option due to their construction.
Iconix Aesthetic Braces
Iconix Aesthetic Braces use stainless steel and champagne-colored brackets that are intended to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.

How Long Will I Have Braces?
For the most part, people can expect to undergo treatment with braces for approximately two years. Although it’s important to note that this number will vary a great deal depending on the patient in question. Some types of dental-related issues simply take a longer amount of time to correct than others.
We will work hard to make sure that your treatment doesn’t go on for any longer than it absolutely has to.
