At Greater Houston Orthodontics, we specialize in discreet and convenient treatment options for adults. Many people don’t realize, but orthodontic treatment is incredibly common amongst adults—in fact 3 out of 5 of our patients are over the age of 18. Advancements in orthodontics allows for a lot of patients’ treatment to go unnoticed by others. If you want to improve your smile for a wedding, big event, career advancement, or just to feel your best, you don’t have to put your life on hold to see great results.
Here is a rundown of our top three picks for discreet orthodontic treatment options for adults:
Invisalign is nearly invisible and is a top choice among adult patients. No one will notice that you are wearing aligners! People will, however, notice your confidence boost! You can also eat what you please without the fear of food getting stuck or damaging your braces because the aligners are removable. Greater Houston Orthodontics is also a Diamond Plus level provider. Dr. Davoody, Dr. Mehr, Dr. Ioannou, and Dr. Panos have been recognized because of their experience and expertise in working with the Invisalign system.
Lingual braces are just like traditional braces but they are placed behind the teeth in order to hide them. The inside, or reverse side, of the teeth are referred to by orthodontists as the lingual side, hence the name. Greater Houston Orthodontics offers two systems, both Incognito and BRIUS. Lingual braces can correct most orthodontic problems, including misalignments and closing gaps. People who play sports or a wind instrument also opt for lingual braces because their placement will not interfere with performance. Like other braces, they are a fixed appliance. This makes them a great option for patients who prefer a “set it and forget it” approach to ensuring their smile goals stay on track.
Clear ceramic braces are a great option for patients who are considering traditional braces but want to opt for something less noticeable than traditional metal brackets. Ceramic braces utilize tooth colored brackets and clear materials that blend in with your smile. At Greater Houston Orthodontics, we offer the Damon System of clear ceramic braces. Because the system does not require the elastic ties of traditional braces, the brackets will remain clear throughout the entire treatment. Clear Ceramic braces offer many of the same benefits as traditional metal braces and are a popular discreet option for adults.
