Adult Braces – You Are Never Too Old For Anything!

Braces once mean thick brackets and wires and years of awkwardness. Today, however, this is most definitely not the case, with discreet and effective adult braces made to suit every individual person. Below are some of the best braces available today and who they are best suited to.

Clear braces Clear braces are a bit of a revolution in the orthodontic world. Composed of a set of clear plastic aligners, clear braces are not only highly discreet they are also removable, meaning the wearer has much more confidence and flexibility when wearing their braces. Every two weeks you change to a new aligner, which is slightly different in shape to the previous one. This then encourages your teeth to gently move into place. Clear braces are an ideal treatment for adults looking to improve the appearance of their teeth, as they don’t cause that much of a change to a person’s appearance or daily routine.
