adult Braces treatment options

Treatment for Adults

Adult braces are more popular than ever before. If you’ve always wanted straighter teeth, or had braces as a kid but your teeth have shifted, Durham Orthodontics can help.

Why Adult Braces?

Adult orthodontics can improve the look of your smile as well as your overall oral health. When crowded teeth and alignment problems are present, it can cause multiple problems such as tooth decay, TMJ pain, and difficulty speaking or eating. If you are susceptible to cavities, speech impediments, or constant headaches, orthodontic treatment may be the answer you’re looking for.

In addition, when orthodontic issues are left untreated, they may worsen over time. Some adult patients find they should have received treatment earlier for a less invasive process and lower overall cost.

What We Offer

We know that adult patients prefer a subtler treatment option that is convenient and comfortable to wear. We offer the following treatment types.

  • 3M Victory Series™ Active brackets for those who want traditional metal braces with added comfort and efficiency
  • Clarity Advanced ceramic braces for those who are looking for a natural-colored bracket that blends in with their teeth
  • Invisalign clear aligners for those who want a removable, invisible braces option
