Adult Invisible Braces
Because orthodontic treatment very often takes a year or more braces essentially have to become part of your public life, an idea that has put off many adults from seeking help in the past. Thankfully that’s changed with invisible braces, an easy way to get the smile you want without making it obvious you’re wearing a brace.
Two alternatives are available at Embrace; lingual braces which are fitted behind your teeth, making them impossible for others to detect, and aligners.
Lingual braces are fixed in position and can be suitable for anything from minor problems all the way up to complex, comprehensive treatments where your upper and lower teeth are moved until they are aligned and function correctly.
Our specialist orthodontists only recommend aligners, which are worn like translucent mouth guards, for minor problems where small adjustments are enough to improve the appearance of your teeth — evidence shows aligners cannot reliably correct more complex problems, but they do work well in specific and more minor cases.
A major advantage of aligners is that they are removable, so they might be suitable if you go out to dinner a lot or do public speaking, and they also lack wires and brackets that can irritate your mouth.
