Adult braces

Portland Adult Braces

Adults seeking treatment will discover a much wider array of options than they remember.  Conventional braces hold wires with a bracket cemented on the front of the tooth, with a few bands anchoring the wires in the back.  Self-ligating braces are also an option.  Self-ligating braces eliminate the need for elastic bands by using a wire that passes through a metal clip on the bracket. Treatment is usually finished the soonest with conventional braces, however, if appearance is a large concern, aligners and lingual braces may suit your particular needs best.  The treatment time, however, may take longer than conventional braces.
