Adult Treatment

When we think about orthodontics, we often think of big, colorful and clunky braces. Fortunately, this is not what orthodontics looks like now. With the advancements that orthodontic technology has made, there are a variety of convenient and discreet orthodontic treatment options that better suit the working professional’s lifestyle. Our doctors at Delaware Orthodontics are proud to offer Adult Treatment.

Benefits Of Adult Treatment

Oral health problems aren’t exclusive to any one age group. It is fairly common for teeth alignment to shift with age, even for adults who have had braces in the past. In addition to straightening the alignment of your teeth, orthodontic treatment can provide many other health benefits, including:

  • Easing jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain
  • Correcting jaw positioning
  • Preventing periodontal and gum disease
  • Preventing excessive wear of enamel
  • Boosting self-esteem

Brace Yourself For Adult Orthodontics

At Delaware Orthodontics, we offer a wide range of solutions for straightening teeth. Each treatment works by applying carefully controlled force to your teeth. Your orthodontist will help you determine which specific treatment would best fit your needs.

Metal Braces

Metal braces are your traditional braces. With the technology available today, metal braces are smaller and more comfortable than they have been in the past. They are also very strong, and made with high-grade stainless steel.

Clear Braces

Clear braces are similar in structure to metal braces, but use ceramic brackets instead of metal brackets. The ceramic material makes these braces more discreet than traditional braces. The thin wire that runs through the brackets are the only noticeable feature of clear braces.


SureSmile is an innovative orthodontic feature we have available at Delaware Orthodontics. With SureSmile, you receive custom archwires shaped by a robot. Treatments under SureSmile general produce quicker, effective results. Not only do SureSmile patients spend less time in treatment, but they also have fewer visits to the office.


Invisalign is a popular treatment among adults. The Invisalign system is a series of virtually invisible plastic aligners that go over your teeth. These clear aligners are easily removable, meaning you won’t have to make any modifications to your current diet or regular oral hygiene routine to accommodate for the appliance.
