Adult Orthodontics Q & A

Am I a candidate for adult orthodontic treatment?

Schedule an orthodontic consultation at MyOrthodontist to see what adult treatment options make the best choice for you. Many adults are turning to orthodontic care to improve the look and function of their smile. 

The team of professionals offers many orthodontic options to help you get the look you want. Whether you have a serious bite problem, one out-of-place tooth, or overcrowding, the team can help. Getting the smile of your dreams has never been so easy. 

How does adult Orthodontic Treatment work?

Adult orthodontics improve the alignment of your teeth and may use a system of wires and brackets that apply continuous pressure over a set period of time. The pressure slowly moves your teeth in a specific direction.

What types of adult treatment options are available?

MyOrthodontist offers several types of braces for adults: 

Traditional metal braces

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces. And with advances in dental technology, metal braces are more comfortable than ever. Made from high-grade stainless steel, metal braces are durable and effective. 

Ceramic braces

Ceramic braces are more discreet than metal braces. These types of adult braces are made from a tooth-colored ceramic material so they blend in with your teeth. 

Ceramic braces are a popular choice, but require more attention to oral care because these types of braces are larger and less durable than metal braces. The team typically uses ceramic braces on the upper front teeth.


MyOrthodontist is now offering a patent-pending Clear Aligner solution called MyClearALIGN! which, when paired with a Dental Monitoring Scan Box, allows you to be treated almost entirely remotely under the direct care of one of our licensed orthodontists. The most advanced care managed conveniently to your busy schedule.


Invisalign uses flexible, clear plastic aligner trays that focus on your alignment and bite concerns and needs, to swiftly correct any issues you have. In addition, the innovative align trays are custom fabricated to your teeth to ensure a perfect fit every step of the way.

With Invisalign clear aligners, like with MyClearALIGN!, it may take 8-12 months to fix most alignment issues, but every individual is different and complex issues may take a bit longer to fix. Treatment and results will vary for each person and their concerns.

What can I expect during my consultation?

When you visit MyOrthodontist for adult braces, you can expect attentive, professional, and patient-centered care. Before making any recommendations, the team schedules a complimentary braces consultation.

During the consultation, your orthodontist asks detailed questions about your medical and dental history and your smile goals. Then, they create your personalized adult braces treatment plan and discuss in detail what you can expect.

The carefully selected team at MyOrthodontist works closely with you to assist you on your smile journey. They guarantee you leave every appointment happy and smiling.

You’re never too old to get the smile you want. Call MyOrthodontist or request your complimentary adult orthodontic consultation online today.
