An increasing number of adults are looking at improving their appearance by enhancing their smiles. As a person ages, their teeth tend to shift, even if they have worn braces as a teenager. Orthodontists now use modern, non-invasive ways to straighten teeth, which can be used by children and adults alike.

Here are some of the most popular options for adult braces.

Metal braces – Metal braces are a common option as they allow to adjust many issues relating to tooth alignment and bite. However, these braces will need to be worn for 2.5 to 3 years, with adjustments by the orthodontists every couple of months. Adults may feel self-conscious in metal braces as they are not as discreet and make eating certain foods difficult.

Clear braces – Clear braces are less visible making them a popular choice among adults. They are made using clear plastic, porcelain, or ceramic. In some cases, only the brackets are invisible, while the wire can be seen. However, adults will still need to be careful when eating certain foods and be mindful of staining.

Invisalign – Invisalign braces are popular as they are the most discreet form of braces in the market today. These braces can be removed at any time by the patient to eat and brush their teeth. However, the aligners need to be changed every few weeks as the patient’s teeth shift. Invisalign is a convenient option for adults as it gives the wearer flexibility while straightening and improving their smile.

Straightening teeth as an adult can have an overall health benefit apart from being purely cosmetic. Straight teeth are easier to keep clean and as a result, have less chance of decay and damage.
