Adult Orthodontics

One of the most common questions we get asked from adults is "Am I too old for braces?" The answer is an emphatic NO. No one is too old to have their teeth straightened or their smile improved. However, we understand that traditional braces may not fit into an adult’s lifestyle. Therefore, we have esthetic alternatives for our adult patients.

Clear Braces

Clear braces work the exact same way as traditional metal braces. Instead of the braces being made from metal, they are made from a clear ceramic material. The treatment time is the same with metal and clear braces.

Invisalign

Invisalign is a series of invisible, comfortable retainers that no one knows you are wearing. This is the most esthetic alternative to wearing braces. Dr. O’Hea will determine if you are a candidate for invisalign at your consultation appointment.

The course of Invisalign treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into straighter position step by step, until you have a more beautiful smile. And unlike braces, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth as usual.
