Adult Treatment

When we think about orthodontics, we often picture colorful and clunky metal brackets. Fortunately, this is not at all what orthodontic treatment looks like today. With the new technology available, there are a variety of discreet orthodontic appliances that are perfect for the working professional. Achieving a beautiful smile no longer means that you have to sacrifice time or your appearance. Our doctors at Ekim Orthodontics are proud to offer Adult Treatment options.

Orthodontic Treatment Is Beneficial For All Ages

Oral health problems can arise at any age. It is not unusual for teeth to shift as a result of age, even if you previously had braces. Having properly aligned teeth can be beneficial for your overall health. Other than improving the appearance of your smile, straightening your teeth can:

  • Prevent periodontal disease and gum disease
  • Correct jaw positioning
  • Treat jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain
  • Prevent abnormal wear of tooth enamel
  • Boost self-esteem

Brace Yourself

It’s never too late to start orthodontic treatment. During your initial consultation, we will help you determine the best possible treatment for your specific needs. You have three options to choose from:

Metal Braces

Metal braces are now composed of smaller, more discreet brackets. Metal braces have developed to feel more comfortable than they have in the past. They are made of strong, high-grade stainless steel.

Clear Braces

Clear braces are similar to metal braces, except that they use ceramic brackets. These brackets are virtually invisible, making your braces more discreet. The only noticeable feature of clear braces is the thin wire that runs through the brackets.


Invisalign has become increasingly popular among adults. The Invisalign system is a series of customized, clear plastic aligners that go over your teeth. A convenient feature of Invisalign aligners is that they are easily removable. You won’t have to worry about making significant dietary or oral hygiene routine modifications during treatment.
