Has always been associated orthodontics with children and adolescents, but more and more adults who also use this technique, as it is known for its comfort, efficiency, hygiene and aesthetics, and that opens the door to many adults who before would never have brackets carried.

Adults who come today to our clinics to undergo orthodontic are between 30 and 60 years, a modern mentality, and are usually very busy at work. These patients decide to use orthodontics because understand that this is the best way to keep your teeth in good condition.

Types of braces for adults

Currently, in the world of dentistry , there is a wide variety of types of braces for adults:

  • Invisalign: system comprising a set of transparent ferrules transferring patients every 15 days. It is characterized by its discretion (it is practically invisible) and comfort (not annoying when eating and sleeping).
  • Conventional orthodontics: be metal braces (uncomfortable, less aesthetic but the most effective and traditional) or porcelain brackets (have the same color of the tooth, so they are more discreet).
  • Lingual orthodontics: a system that involves placing the brackets on the inside of the teeth, so it is more aesthetic but very uncomfortable for the patient's tongue. As for accuracy, this technique requires a very fine control and hands very experienced to get good results.
