No More Metal Mouth

April 2016

Braces are a common way to straighten your smile but are not the most attractive option for some, especially adults. According to Humana, more than four million people in the U.S. wear braces and 25 percent are adults. For those looking for the same straightening results may consider these options that are much less noticeable: lingual braces and Invisalign®.

Lingual braces are much like traditional braces, but the brackets are applied to the back of the teeth. The process takes more time, but the brackets, wire and elastics are much less visible compared to traditional braces.

Invisalign® is much different than traditional braces. There is no wire or brackets, but instead a clear tray custom molded to fit your mouth. These trays gradually shift teeth into the correct position over time.
