If you are an adult who has been living with crooked teeth all these years, you might be considering orthodontics. Many adults today opt for braces to address a multitude of problems with their teeth. When seeking orthodontics in Aurora, CO, you might be wondering what type of braces might be the best match for your lifestyle.

Traditional Braces

There are plenty of adults who opt to go for the traditional route when it comes to braces. No, the metal wires and brackets are not subtle, but traditional orthodontics mean that even the most complicated issues can be addressed. Today’s options mean that you can get braces that are almost white and blend in better with your teeth, so they are not as noticeable. After all, after just a couple of years of treatment, you will have the smile you wish you had been born with.

Invisible Braces

For most adults, invisible braces are their orthodontics of choice. Using clear plastic aligners to gently nudge teeth into place, invisible braces are virtually undetectable—even to someone standing right next to you.

Invisible braces can’t fix all orthodontic issues, but it can address many:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Gaps in the teeth
  • Open bite

Invisible braces also eliminate any social stigma that comes along with wearing braces. Older teens and adults, in particular, appreciate that they have nothing to hide with invisible braces. They can laugh, speak, and smile without feeling self-conscious.

Invisible braces generally mean shorter treatment times as well, with most cases lasting from about six months to 18 months.
