The world of dentistry has made massive strides over the last twenty years. We are more than able to provide services with high success rates, such as adult orthodontics, with beautiful and long-lasting results. Dental Partners of Boston are proud to continually optimize the practice of excellent dentistry, and we are all continually learning in our fields and specialties.
Our own Dr. Yael Frydman is a Boston Top Dentist who provides orthodontics for adults who wish to straighten their teeth. While most alignment corrective dental work takes place over the course of a person’s childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood, adults in need of restorative work may not have had the opportunity or access to receive orthodontic care. We know that adults sometimes feel ashamed of how their teeth look or the condition they are in and hesitate to seek a solution, but 1 in 5 of Dr. Frydman’s patients are adults! An adult having orthodontic work is not uncommon.
However, braces themselves can be perceived as unfashionable and an inconvenient dental tool, despite how temporary their use can be. We understand and empathize. Thankfully, we have many other alternatives available, including the best discreet braces for adults including Invisalign.
Highly recommended“Dr. O’Toole and his staff are extremely competent; they take the time to explain the process, their findings and options. They are also very pleasant and do not attempt any “hard sell”. I recommend them.”
Almost 20% of those who where braces are those making use of adult orthodontics care. This shows that there is no shame and only wisdom in having your teeth fitted to regain their natural straightness. But what options are there?
Invisalign Clear Aligners
Invisalign is a hugely popular and proven form of brace adjustment, helping to straighten misshapen or misdirected teeth in as little as six months (compared to two or three years using more traditional methods). These aligners are constructed from clear plastic and are custom-made for the dental environment you possess. They are developed via 3D imaging of your mouth, and snap-on aligners are developed to help them comfortably sit within your mouth. They are, far and above, the most popular choice for discreet dental orthodontic care available today.
Clear braces are traditional braces that offer clear designs. They are much less noticeable than traditional metal braces and provide you all of the redirecting and positioning force of tried and tested methods. They are more than worth your attention.
Ceramic braces are constructed from simple ceramic brackets that help fix bite problems and are attached with wires and rubber bands. As the brackets are completely transparent they allow the natural enamel of your teeth to shine through, dramatically lessening the noticeability of brace wear.
Lingual braces are braces that are fitted behind the teeth, allowing them to remain secure yet mostly invisible during the course of normal daily life. They are a popular option for those who return for several fittings over the years.
