Adult Braces are Better Than You Think

The thought of getting braces as an adult can be daunting and downright terrifying to many people. An adult’s confidence and appearance tend to be more on the firing line than they would have in childhood, and it can be tough when an orthodontist tells you they’re necessary.

However, in this day and age, adult braces are a lot better than you think. There are many discrete and common options that allow adults to take care of their teeth without taking a hit to their confidence. At Ipswich Family Dental Practice, we offer a wide range of orthodontic services for both children and adults, and there are a few modern options that are available if you would like to take a more subtle approach to braces.


Clear Aligners

Most commonly known as Invisalign®, clear aligners are a popular orthodontic treatment for adults. They’re made of a transparent plastic that is moulded appropriately and then placed over your teeth so it can align them over time.

They are an option that is less visible than braces. They’re discrete, removable, and allow you to eat, drink, and clean with ease. They’re the perfect grown up approach to braces thanks to their comfortable simplicity and subtlety.



Whether you’re a child or an adult, braces have changed significantly over the years in order to provide a more subtle and manageable approach to teeth alignment.

If you haven’t known anyone who has recently received braces, we tend to imagine thick metal chunks that’s glued to teeth. These days, that’s all very different. There are clear and tooth-coloured options available, and they’re significantly smaller than they used to be. They’re now more comfortable to wear, and while clear aligners allow for a choice in adult orthodontic treatments, braces are still the fastest way to see results in alignment.
