Most adults understand that improving the appearance of their smiles can have a positive effect on their personal, social and professional lives. Age is not a consideration for orthodontic treatment. Although sometimes they move more slowly, generally teeth move in a similar manner at any age as long as the teeth are healthy and have good bone support.
Some adults simply want straight teeth, others want to have cleaning made easier to improve the overall health of the teeth and gums, while others want to improve function. During your consultation our specialist orthodontists will advise you as to the most appropriate treatment and appliance options available for you. We have a wide range of appliances available for adult patients including tooth coloured braces, invisible braces (lingual braces on the inside of the teeth) and clear removable aligners called Invisalign.
Major changes can nowadays also be made using small skeletal anchors as well as more radical cosmetic changes with surgical orthodontics.
