  • To correct bite issues so that eating and chewing becomes easy
  • To get even and straight teeth for flaunting a confident smile
  • To prevent gum disease in adults
  • To stop extra spacing or crowding of teethwhich results in tooth decay

Orthodontic Treatment Options for Adults

With the advancement in the field of orthodontics, there are numerous adult orthodontic options from which you and your orthodontist can choose. However, the following are the most common and effective solutions:-.



When it comes to adult orthodontics, Invisalign aligners are the most popular choice for obvious reasons. Invisalign for adults is super convenient as you don’t have many food restrictions. This is because you can remove them when you eat. But you should not forget to wear them again. Moreover,Invisalign is a set of clear aligners which are not visible to others. So your orthodontic treatment can be done discreetly.

Metal Braces

It is one of the most conventional types of braces for adults and kids as well. Metal braces are tied with the help of a wire to your teeth. The wire is periodically adjusted according to the movement of your teeth in the correct position. Metal braces are ideal for adults as they restore the misaligned teeth within a short span of time. You might initially feel uneasy with metal braces, but the discomfort mostly disappears in a few days.


Clear Braces / Ceramic Braces

Orthodontists prefer clear braces for adults as these braces are non-visible to others. This is because they are made of porcelain or ceramic, which is similar to the color of your teeth. They are also known as Invisible braces or ceramic braces. Clear braces are tied to your teeth with wires like traditional metal braces, but they are much discreet. They can pretty much treat every misalignment of teeth that metal braces can treat.

  • I rated them a 5/5, but would give them more stars if possible! We chose Rome Orthodontics after we went for our complimentary consult and were greeted warmly and professionally. During the initial consult every detail of the process was explained to us fully and they even offered numerous payment plans that worked for us to put braces on two teenagers. The staff are always friendly, the environment is meticulously kept, appointments are simple to make, and most importantly the dentists and assistants make the experience relaxing and fun for our children. We are so glad that we are part of the Rome Orthodontics family. You will not be disappointed in their service!

  • Staff is amazing!!! The entire staff is super friendly! We have seen Dr. Patel both times and he is great with kids, explains and shows everything. They are very accommodating and work with you to give you the best experience. The staff jokes around with the kids and makes them feel at ease... they take their time to answer questions that your child might have. It’s a great office, music playing , relaxing and clean! The welcome package your child receives when they get braces on is super nice!

  • My daughter has had a wonderful experience at Brite Orthodontics. Her appointments are timely and staff are always friendly. Kudos to Sue!! The office is inviting and the atmosphere demonstrates the attitude of quality care that is provided. Unfortunately, I have had an experience at another provider that has not come close to the quality of care that is provided at Brite Orthodontics. I could not be happier with the orthodontic care my daughter has received at Brite Orthodontics.

Benefits of Adult Orthodontic Treatment

  • They Reduce Oral Health ProblemsMisaligned and crooked teeth are not merely an inconvenience. They can develop into severe dental issues such as gum disease, chipped teeth, thinning of the jawbone, tooth decay, etc. many of these concerns arise due to uneven pressure of teeth on your jaw. This uneven pressure can also lead to chronic pain in TMJ. It is imperative to address these issues with the help of braces.
  • They Boost Self-Confidence – Makes You Look Good and Feel ConfidentIt’s natural to aspire for a confident smile and presentable appearance.
