Adult orthodontics have become more mainstream in recent years, but still many people don’t know the difference between adult orthodontics and traditional orthodontics. As its name suggests, adult orthodontics is designed for adults alone and so is often tailored with 2 main considerations in mind, discretion and speed.

Adult patients who wish to avoid traditional fixed metal braces at all costs, can choose from a wide variety of orthodontics in Weybridge from Invisalign aligners to Incognito lingual braces and clear fixed braces, available at dental practices such as Weybridge Orthodontics. Every patient has a different reason for wanting braces, but many adults have one thing in common when choosing discreet orthodontics in Weybridge – they value aesthetics and convenience.

A comfortable option

Invisalign aligners are preferred by many patients because they are more comfortable than metal braces as they are made of smooth plastic which doesn’t irritate the soft tissues of the mouth.

A discreet way to go

Many patients are curious about Invisalign or Incognito because they are very discreet. Invisalign aligners are barely visible because they are made of clear plastic, whereas Incognito braces are attached behind the teeth. In both cases, patients can keep smiling without having to worry about people staring at conspicuous metal braces.

Convenience is king

Another important aspect of discreet braces such as Invisalign is ease. Invisalign aligners are designed in such a way as not to disrupt a person’s lifestyle, since they do not require frequent visits to the dentist for adjustments and the aligners are removable. Patients can therefore enjoy mealtimes as before and toothbrushing is as easy as ever.

Discreet orthodontics can fix a number of issues

Discreet orthodontics in Weybridge are as good as metal braces for fixing a range of dental misalignments. Invisalign can fix open bites, overbites, crossbites, underbites, crooked, crowded and spaced out teeth. Incognito lingual braces can handle more complex problems such as heavily misaligned, rotated and/or twisted teeth. This means even adult patients with severe misalignments that Invisalign cannot resolve can still look forward to discreet teeth straightening. Straighter teeth truly can be achieved at any age.
