Adult Braces

Award-Winning Orthontic Treatment

Invisible braces offer discrete treatment with lasting results! An alternative to Invisalign® treatments, invisible braces are virtually unnoticeable, comfortable to wear, and easy to use. Treatment with invisible braces can improve your confidence and eliminate any reservations you have about the appearance of traditional braces.

Braces for Adults

Invisible braces are actually clear aligners or custom retainers made to fit your teeth. For your treatment, a series of aligners is made, which you’ll wear according to your treatment plan. These clear aligners will gradually move your teeth into the desired position over the course of treatment.

Types of Adult Braces

Adults can be treated with either metal or ceramic braces. Many adults prefer ceramic braces because of their minimal appearance, which can make wearing braces as an adult less concerning. Upon consulting with Dr. Dierkes, you’ll learn which type of braces will be best to treat the issues you’re experiencing.

Length of Treatment with Adult Braces

Adult teeth can take longer to move into correct positions compared to younger teeth, which can affect the length of treatment. The amount of time you will need to wear adult braces will be determined by your individualized treatment plan. Most adult braces patients wear braces anywhere from 12 to 44 months.

Why Choose Dr. Dierkes?

Dr. Dierkes is committed to providing patients with a naturopathic approach to orthodontic and TMJ treatments. His “All Things Considered” approach to orthodontic treatment carefully considers the relationships among teeth, bone, muscles, TMJ, airway, food allergies, nutritional deficiencies and excesses, and endocrine balances and how each will affect the treatment of the patient.

With a holistic approach to the care he provides, Dr. Dierkes believes in patient education and effective communication which allows each patient to make informed choices about their care and treatment as well as fosters a positive working relationship between doctor and patient. While the naturopathic approach may take more time, the outcome is better for the patient, and the results extend beyond orthodontics and facial esthetics to improve the patient’s overall health.
