Orthodontic Braces for Adults

You don’t need to be a child to benefit from braces. At Cantor & Team Orthodontics, we offer a wide range of options for adults who are looking to improve their smile. We have a great deal of experience in fitting braces for adult patients, and we will make sure you make the decision that is best for you.

Options for Adults Needing Braces

Whether you are looking for Invisalign® or other types of braces in the Greater Carlisle Area, you have plenty of options at Cantor & Team Orthodontics. Here are some things to consider for each one.


You might have heard of Invisalign braces, which are clear, nearly invisible alignment trays that gradually straighten your teeth. If you are a candidate for this option, you will use several different trays over a period of a year or two. You’ll use each tray for an average of two weeks — the number of trays will depend on the amount of correction that you require. There will probably be a bit of discomfort as your teeth start to shift, but the trays are easy to remove when eating, drinking, brushing, or flossing. If you have major straightening needs, however, this might not be the best option.

Metal Self-Ligating Braces

These are metal braces that don’t need ligatures to hold the archwire in place. You won’t need to go to the dentist as often to have them adjusted, and you’ll experience less irritation than with traditional adult braces.

Clear Braces

Clear adult orthodontic braces are a popular update to traditional metal braces. They are made of materials that are close to the color of your natural teeth so it is not as obvious you’re wearing braces.
