Adult braces are more popular than ever before. Did you have braces as a child and your teeth have shifted? Or have you always been self-conscious about your smile and want to start treatment? You’re not alone. Many of our patients at Olson Orthodontics are adults.
Types of Adult Braces
We offer multiple types of braces to suit every orthodontic need. Whether you’re looking for traditional metal braces or invisible braces, we have different options to choose from.
Dr. Lauren specializes in Invisalign clear aligners for practically invisible braces. Invisalign comes in sets of upper and lower aligners that you replace each week. Each set moves your teeth little by little until they’ve reached the desired positions. Adult patients love clear aligners because they are so convenient. During treatment, you can remove your aligners before meals, which means you can eat whatever you like! We will send you home with multiple sets, so office visits are minimal. Patients also report less soreness than with traditional metal braces.
Our traditional braces are efficient and comfortable, unlike braces of the past. In addition to standard metal brackets, we also offer self-ligating, rose gold, and clear braces options. Self-ligating braces come without elastic bands or ties. Instead, they use clips to quickly yet gently move teeth into position. Our clear braces also allow you to more discreetly complete treatment.
To make treatment even faster, we also use Acceledent. This device uses a strong yet slight vibration to stimulate the teeth to move. We’ve been able to help patients complete their treatment 50% faster than ever before!
