It’s never too late to get adult braces!

Did you know about one in four orthodontic patients are adults? It’s true! Adult braces are a lot more common than you may think.

There’s a common misconception that braces are only for children or teens. We understand that traditional metal braces may not be the most desirable choice for everyone; that’s why Dr. Jewett offers a number of modern treatment options!

We don’t expect all of our patients to prefer the same treatment. Each of our patients is unique, with different needs and preferences. At Local Orthodontics, you aren’t limited to one type of braces. You aren’t even limited to just braces!

Dr. Jewett provides Invisalign® and invisible braces for adults in Johnson City.

Can adults get braces?

Of course they can! Fortunately, advanced technologies have made orthodontics more practical for adults too. With Invisalign® clear aligners, you may not even realize someone you see everyday is undergoing orthodontic treatment.

Orthodontic treatment is for anyone who wants to experience their greatest quality of life. From your sleep quality, to your breathing quality, your chewing functionality and your self-esteem, braces or Invisalign can transform your life

Invisible Braces for Adults

For adults who prefer an invisible treatment option, we offer Invisalign, lingual (behind-the-teeth) braces, and clear ceramic braces! In other words, you’ve got plenty of options with Dr. Jewett.

Invisalign is the most common form of invisible braces. This modern technology uses clear, flexible plastic aligners that cover the entire surface of the top and bottom teeth to shift the smile toward a perfect alignment.

Invisalign is virtually-invisible and undetectable! Clear aligners are a convenient treatment option that can be removed to eat, brush your teeth and floss your teeth.

INBRACE Lingual Braces
INBRACE braces use unique, custom-designed “loop” brackets positioned behind the teeth. These lingual braces are bonded to the back surface of the teeth, so nobody will be able to see your braces!

These are 100% invisible braces for adults. Using Smartwire technology combined with GentleForce technology, INBRACE braces are designed to allow for optimal movement of each individual tooth, by applying light, persistent force to move the teeth.

Ceramic Braces
Ceramic braces are made of a transparent, high-quality, durable ceramic material. These ones use rubber bands to hold the archwire to the bracket, so they resemble traditional braces closer.

Ceramic braces use ceramic brackets and transparent rubber bands for a less noticeable appearance than metal braces.

Cost of Braces for Adults

The cost of braces is affordable with us! At your first visit to our office, we’ll work with you to create a payment plan that meets your needs, fits your budget, and enables you to experience a healthy, beautiful smile.
