With advancements in technology and treatment options, achieving your dream smile as an adult has never been more accessible or discreet.

What is Adult Orthodontics?

Adult orthodontics is a specialized branch of orthodontic care that focuses on correcting misaligned teeth and jaw discrepancies in individuals over 18. While the basic principles of orthodontic treatment remain the same, there are unique considerations when treating adult patients. Dr. Steven Speaker has extensive experience and expertise in addressing adult orthodontic patients’ specific needs and concerns.


One common misconception about adult orthodontics is that it’s too late to pursue treatment. However, with advancements such as clear aligner therapy and discreet braces, adults now have more choices. Whether you’re dealing with crowded teeth, spacing issues, bite problems, or other orthodontic concerns, Speaker Orthodontics offers personalized treatment plans designed to suit your lifestyle and goals.

What are the Benefits of Adult Orthodontics?

Investing in adult orthodontic treatment offers numerous benefits beyond just a straighter smile. Improved oral health, enhanced confidence, and a boost in self-esteem are just a few of the positive outcomes you can expect. Additionally, properly aligned teeth are easier to clean and maintain, reducing the risk of oral health issues such as gum disease and tooth decay.

By choosing Speaker Orthodontics for your adult orthodontic needs, you’re not just investing in your smile – you’re investing in your overall health and well-being. Our compassionate team supports you every step of the way, from your initial consultation to the day your braces come off, or you wear your last aligner.

Our Adult Orthodontic Options

We understand that every patient is unique, and we offer various orthodontic options to suit your individual needs, lifestyle, and aesthetic preferences. Whether you’re looking for a discreet solution or prefer a more traditional approach, we have the expertise and technology to help you achieve the smile of your dreams. Our adult orthodontic options include:

Invisalign Clear Aligners: Invisalign is popular among adults seeking a discreet orthodontic solution. These clear aligners are virtually invisible and provide a comfortable alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign gradually shifts your teeth into alignment using a series of custom-made, removable aligners. With Invisalign, you can easily enjoy the freedom to eat, drink, and maintain oral hygiene, making it an ideal choice for busy adults.

Traditional Braces: Metal braces are reliable and effective for correcting orthodontic issues. Traditional braces consist of brackets, wires, and bands that gradually move your teeth into their desired positions. While they are more visible than clear aligners, technological advances have made modern braces more comfortable and efficient than ever before.

Clear Traditional Braces: Clear braces offer a discreet alternative to traditional metal braces. Clear braces blend seamlessly with your natural tooth color, making them less noticeable while providing effective orthodontic treatment. Clear braces are an excellent choice for patients who desire a more subtle aesthetic during their orthodontic journey.

Ceramic Braces: Ceramic braces combine the effectiveness of traditional braces with a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. These braces feature clear or tooth-colored brackets and wires less conspicuous than metal braces. Ceramic braces are popular for adults who want a subtle orthodontic option without sacrificing treatment efficiency.

Self-Ligating Braces: Self-ligating braces offer several advantages over traditional braces, including quicker treatment times, fewer office visits, and reduced discomfort. Unlike traditional braces, self-ligating braces use specialized brackets that do not require elastic bands or metal ties to hold the wires in place. This allows for smoother tooth movement and easier maintenance throughout your orthodontic treatment.
