Can I Get Braces Even Though I’m an Adult?

July 31, 2021 4:27 am

When you think about someone with braces, you probably think about a teenager with a mouth full of metal brackets. But if you’re an adult that has crooked teeth, misalignment, or bite issues, you’re probably looking for a more age-appropriate option for your smile. Meason Orthodontics caters orthodontic treatment plans to each individual patient. We offer options that are subtle and effective for adults.

What Is Invisalign?

Instead of brackets and wires, Invisalign® uses clear, subtle aligners that slip over your teeth to subtly shift them in their proper places over time. Your aligners are custom-made for you. Every two weeks, you will receive new aligners that will help push your treatment along.

What About Food Restrictions?

The good news is that there aren’t any! Because aligners are removable, you can enjoy your favorite foods at mealtimes without having to make any major adjustments. Except for during meals and oral care, you should wear your aligners throughout the day, including while you sleep.

What About Oral Hygiene?

You can clean your aligners just as you would a retainer by brushing them thoroughly and rinsing them with warm water every time you brush. If you stick to your treatment plan, you can achieve the smile of your dreams in as little as 12 to 18 months depending on the state of your smile.

Who Is Eligible for Invisalign?

Invisalign is great for individuals who have spacing issues and gaps, crooked teeth and minor bite issues. If you have advanced rotation needs or jaw issues, metal braces might still be the best option for you. We’ll help you decide which option is best for your smile and budget during your initial consultation with us!

In-House Aligners

For a more affordable and equally effective option, we offer in-house aligners to cut out the middleman and provide our patients with another treatment possibility.
