Adult Orthodontics Services

Clear braces (ceramic), lingual appliances (on the tongue side of the teeth) and invisalign (clear aligners) can be used to make orthodontics less conspicuous.

In the US, Lesley studied a technique of accelerated orthodontics that can reduce treatment time up to 2/3rds (6 to 9 months) if the orthodontics is carried out with gum surgery. This technique has the advantage of adding bone. Lack of bone is a problem that can complicate adult treatment.

If there is a problem with jaw alignment or the profile, orthognatic surgery can be included to produce a dramatic improvement in facial aesthetics.
