Our Braces for Adult Teeth
Fredericksburg Orthodontics offers several options for adults interested in braces:
- Traditional Metal: Adult metal braces involve metal brackets bonded to each tooth, so they can hold archwire to exert gentle pressure to move teeth into shape. Today’s metal braces have smaller, more rounded brackets and are made of durable materials for better comfort.
- Clear ceramic: Ceramic braces use clear brackets rather than metal, making them less visible for a discreet option.
- Lingual: Lingual braces have metal brackets on the back of the teeth, so no one but your orthodontist will see them.
- Iconix: Iconix braces use stainless brackets in a warm white gold color for a sophisticated and trendy look. They are often paired with clear elastics and gold archwire.
Offering Invisalign® for Adults in Fredericksburg
Invisalign® for adults is an alternative to braces. While all braces work by bonding brackets to the teeth, Invisalign uses a series of clear acrylic aligners to shift teeth into place gently. You wear your aligners for two weeks before moving to a new set. You wear each aligner for 20-22 hours a day.
Adults love this option because aligners can be removed during eating and when brushing your teeth, meaning it’s easier to care for your oral hygiene and there are no diet restrictions. Best of all, Invisalign is discreet, comfortable and removable for ultimate convenience.
