Orthodontics is the study and treatment of dental displacement and malocclusions. As an expert at issues pertaining to the jaw, we can move and adjust teeth even if they are fully formed and hardened. This makes it possible to straighten teeth in adults, rather than children only.

Today adults are seeking orthodontic treatment at a historical rate. It is true, you are “never too old” for orthodontic treatment. In fact, almost 1 in 5 new orthodontic patients are adults. What’s the reason behind this? The availability of more attractive and esthetic alternatives. Ceramic clear brackets and invisalign are a few of the available options.A healthy bite and a good looking smile is as important at age 60 as it is at age 16. Even though adults are no longer growing, they can still enjoy improvements that come from orthodontic treatment. Your age is not a consideration for orthodontic treatment. Healthy teeth can be moved at any age. If you are looking for clear braces, then Suliman Orthodontics is the clear choice.
For our adult patients, we recommend and provide the following treatment methods based on popularity among adult patient in our office and in the U.S.
Clear Ceramic Braces for Adults
Clear braces have revolutionized the delivery of orthodontic treatment in adults. They are a very poplular choice among adults who want to make a lasting impression and who want to make a less noticeable statement during treatment. Since the introduction of ceramic braces to the market in 1980’s, they have significantly improved the appearance of braces. Today, these brackets offer unmatched esthetics and proven to be as efficient as traditional metal braces. There is often a slightly higher cost for these brackets but the esthetics they offer are priceless.
Invisalign® for Adults
If you need orthodontic treatment, but you’re worried about how braces will look, don’t worry. Invisalign can treat many cases, and uses nearlyinvisible aligners that won’t show up in school photos or interfere with sports. You can also remove them to brush and floss to maintain good oral hygiene. This option is not for everyone however since compliance is very critical to the success of the treatment. Invisalign treatment consists of a series of clear aligners that are worn at least 20-22 hours a day and are changed every 1-2 weeks until treatment is completed. If worn correctly as prescribed by Dr. Suliman, then you can achieve very similar results as with conventional braces.
