Options For Adult Orthodontics in Old Bridge

Adult orthodontics in Old Bridge NJ have significantly improved in the last few decades. There are many solutions available to achieve a patient’s desired outcome more comfortably and in less time than ever before. In addition to traditional braces, Family Orthodontics offers a comprehensive range of alternatives that provide the ultimate discretion. We understand having visible braces as an adult may lead to self-conscious emotions. Family Orthodontics’ customized treatment plans are designed with your unique anatomic needs (meticulously evaluated by our skilled team) and your personal preferences in mind. Our orthodontists will review each option with you until the perfect technique is agreed upon together.

Adult Braces Vs. Children’s Orthodontics

Adult and child orthodontics vary in numerous ways. Adult facial structures have been fully developed, which makes the tissues less malleable than those of children. Some adults have insufficient bone, gingivitis or limited space within their mouth. For this reason, some patients need to be assessed for a customized plan of action. Adults are also more cooperative when it comes to treatment because their smile is something they want to transform. Once an adult’s cosmetic goals are identified, and there are no other functional concerns, our adult orthodontic office will tailor the treatment to optimize your outcome.

We recommend this orthodontic method to those with fully matured jaws and the dedication to follow the regimen – making it ideal for adults. Invisalign clear braces can straighten your teeth while remaining under the radar; others won’t be able to notice that you’re wearing a dental appliance.

Invisalign requires the wearer to keep the trays in place for 22 hours a day, only removing them when eating or brushing their teeth. To determine if Invisalign treatment is the right option for you, our Old Bridge orthodontists examine your smile and evaluates the extent of orthodontic work you require. Invisalign clear braces are most effective for patients with mild to moderate alignment or crowding issues.

If a patient chooses invisible trays and Invisalign aligners as the solution for their needs, our orthodontists will take impressions of your smile and send them to the Invisalign lab. Invisalign would then fabricate and ship your aligners. You then return to Family Orthodontics to receive your aligners along with instructions on when to change them as you progress through your treatment.

Ceramic or Clear Bracket Braces in Old Bridge

If a patient needs complex care, but also wants to avoid silver metal orthodontics, Family Orthodontics offers ceramic, clear, or tooth-colored bracket braces. These appliances are made from high-quality materials and are color-matched to the shade of your teeth to leave you with a seamless appearance. They are also stain-resistant and will not discolor over time.

Ceramic or clear bracket braces are highly recommended by our Old Bridge orthodontists for patients who have a difficult time managing removable aligners. These discreet braces still use the same framework as traditional metal wire orthodontics to provide you with effective treatment, but offer an improved appearance for our adult patients.
