In recent years, an increasing number of adults have been seeking out orthodontic treatment to straight crooked teeth, correct their bite, and improve the overall appearance of their smile. For many adults, traditional metal braces are not an appealing option because of the way they look, and how intrusive and impractical they can be. Thankfully, today’s adult braces options are more varied and convenient than ever before. Our experienced Cherry Creek orthodontist Dr. Rudman offers the following types of braces for adults:
- Clear braces – Similar to traditional braces, but with wires and brackets that are virtually invisible, making them less obvious at a glance.
- Invisalign® – An innovative technology that uses clear plastic teeth aligners to straighten teeth. Invisalign® “trays” are custom-fit to your smile, and can be removed whenever you need to eat, brush, or floss. Dr. Rudman is the most experienced Invisalign® dentist in the city of Denver, and in the top 1% of all Invisalign® providers worldwide.
- Incognito™ – Incognito™ braces are placed on the backside of your teeth, hiding them from view. They also require fewer wire adjustments than traditional metal braces.
- Synergy R – A new bracket system that is self-ligating, meaning it does not require the usual o-shaped rubber bands to hold the brackets to the wire. Synergy R involves lighter force, lower friction, and more comfortable tooth movement. The self-ligating system also takes less time to be adjusted.
