Modern orthodontic appliances can be quite aesthetically pleasing. The left side of this photograph shows conventional metal fixed appliance brackets and the right side shows clear (made from a ceramic material) fixed appliance brackets. It is not uncommon now to see adult patients with fixed orthodontic appliances.
If you are concerned about the appearance of the brace, we are also able to provide various alternatives to the conventional metal fixed appliance brackets, such as ceramic fixed appliance brackets, lingual braces that are fitted to the tongue side of the teeth and clear aligners such as "InvisalignTM". These braces are much less notice able than conventional fixed appliance brackets.
Patients interested in lingual braces and "InvisalignTM" braces should make an appointment with Graham Edwards.
