Adult Orthodontic Treatment vs Kids Braces

Interdisciplinary Dental Care

The options for orthodontic treatments of adults are different from those of kids. For example, most orthodontic treatments for adults is combined with addressing other oral health issues.

The options for orthodontic treatments of adults are different from those of kids. Some common dental problems include gum disease (gingivits or periodontal disease), jaw disorders, misalignment of teeth, and root resorption caused by skeletal issues.

Cosmetic Treatment Options

Adult patients, in contrast to younger patients (adolescents), are mostly interested in cosmetic treatment options. Adult treatments at PORTH includes clear aligners (Invisalign), lingual braces, or ceramic braces. These can address all orthodontic problems like overbite, underbite and openbite.

More than Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are the conventional option to fix crooked teeth. New types of braces and clear aligners are available with orthodontic treatment.

The American Association of Orthodontists says that new advances can help adults get orthodontic treatment without these risks. The advances can straighten their teeth and prevent bone loss, tooth decay, and chipped enamel.

Adults who want orthodontic treatment can benefit from these advances. Collectively, this helps improving standards of dental health.

More than Straight Smile

Adults seek orthodontic treatment to improve their self-esteem and build self confidence. Orthodontic treatment for adults may be for more than simple tooth movement and straight teeth. Adult orthodontics can help with restorative plans like veneers, optimizing spaces for dental implants, or addressing sleep apnea

More Treatment Options

Esthetic Adult Braces


Ceramic esthetic braces are tooth colored. These ceramic braces are one option for adult braces. This makes the appearance of the braces less visually “loud” as the brackets almost blend in with the teeth. 

Adults who want to straighten their teeth without traditional braces can choose clear braces instead. Invisible braces are both clear aligners (Invisalign) or lingual braces.

Accelerated Orthodontics


Accelerated orthodontic treatment is often a favorite choice for adult patients. Bone micro-perforation is currently the only available option that is most likely to speed up the treatment.

During your consultation and treatment, we will discuss all your options for accelerated orthodontics. We will explain the advantages and disadvantages of this treatment in detail. Dr. Rooz uses special tools to make small holes in the bone around your teeth. This causes inflammation and helps your teeth move more quickly.

Orthognathic Surgery &
Treatment for Sleep Disorders


Jaw surgery is now simpler with the help of digital technology in orthodontics. Appliances help to set the jaw in the correct position after repositioning it. We work with some amazing surgeons, and our team has helped many patients with bone problems.

Dentistry has been focusing on sleep disorders. To help with these issues many apliances exist. Orthognathic surgery is a successful treatment for sleep disorders by advancing the jaw.

Once your orthodontic treatment is complete and your teeth are straight, you will receive a clear plastic retainer to wear. 

These clear retainers are removable. Whether your treatment plan had Invisalign or clear braces, you will have two plastic trays.

You will wear these retainers full time in the beginning, and later you may only wear them at night. Faster treatment time requires slightly more wear of clear retainer wear. Additionally, maintain good oral hygiene helps with overall health.

Why Ariel opted for PORTH
clear aligners instead of mail order aligners

Ariel switched to PORTH clear aligners because it addressed the root of her issue, her bite, and the cost was the same as current treatment.

Dr. Rooz performs miracles. My teeth have been a challenge as an adult, I would never smile for pictures and I was so self conscious.

Dr. Rooz explained every step and procedure and he is very responsive. I would recommend him to my family and friends. He is a caring , personalized, and very passionate at what does. Thank you Dr. Rooz and everyone that made my beautiful smile.

Yoli G.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! I had braces before and never wore my retainer. My teeth had shifted and I hated my smile.

This place had great reviews so I took a leap of faith. Staff so was friendly and the office is beautiful. I am 8 weeks into my treatment and I am extremely happy with my results using the clear aligners. The payment plan also make it easy and affordable to maintain.

Alexis N. 

I have wanted to have my teeth straightened for years. As an adult, I was hesitant to get braces and bother with the process; it seemed like a big ordeal with lots of ortho options out there to research.

I am so happy I went to Porth! I highly recommend Porth to anyone, any age.

My experience here has been excellent from start to finish. Dr. Rooz has been so patient, helpful, and kind. I can text when I have a question or concern and hear back quickly. I love the ability to have weekend and evening appointments. The office is clean and modern and the staff are warm and friendly.

And most importantly - I am thrilled with the progress of my new smile! I have so much more confidence and can't wait until masks are off so everyone can see.
