Adult Braces & Invisalign

Get Straight Teeth Up To 40% Faster With Braces & Invisalign


Orthodontics is not just for children and teens. In fact, 1 in every 5 patients in orthodontic treatment is an adult. No one is too old for braces and orthodontic treatment.

Adults seek braces and orthodontic treatment for many of the same reasons as children. Some adults had orthodontic problems as children but were unable to correct them until now. Others, who had treatment as children, may need further treatment as adults due to relapse or limitations in initial treatment.

Benefits of Adult Braces
Adults can benefit from braces and orthodontic treatment in many ways. These include:

  • Align the teeth to create a more aesthetic and beautiful smile
  • Correct relapse after previous orthodontic treatment due to lack of long term retainer wear
  • Improve the ability to brush and floss, especially for crowded or overlapping lower front teeth
  • Create a better or more comfortable bite and ability to chew
  • Address missing teeth
  • Close spaces between the teeth
  • Reduce excessive wear on the teeth due to grinding or poor bite
  • Jaw surgery to correct discrepancy between the upper and lower jaws.

Appearance of Adult Braces
Many adults are concerned with the appearance of braces. Often, Invisalign® (the invisible alternative to braces) can be used to treat adults. This technology involves clear removable aligners, fabricated through advanced 3D imaging to align the teeth. For more severe problems, we have the option of clear ceramic braces instead of metal.

Comfort Level With Adult Braces
Orthodontic treatment is no more uncomfortable for adults than children. Adults undergoing orthodontic treatment report the same level of soreness as children (although adults are more willing to tell us about the soreness).

Typically, the teeth are most uncomfortable 12-24 hours after an orthodontic adjustment and will disappear within only 3 to 5 days. Modern appliances are smaller and more comfortable to wear. Modern techniques, with the new titanium technology, put less pressure on the teeth to cause discomfort, while moving the teeth more rapidly and efficiently. It also decreases the time required between adjustments to every 8 – 10 weeks. Treatment time, on average, is completed in 15-18 months.

Cost Of Adult Braces
The fee for adult braces and orthodontic treatment is determined the same way as child or adolescent treatment. It is based on the severity of the problem, the complexity of the correction, the appliances used and the length of time to correct.

Read a review from a Wilson Orthodontics Invisalign patient

“My dentist Bart Cleary suggested that I let Dr. Wilson see what he could do for me because I was grinding during sleep and wearing down my bottom teeth. Dr. Wilson explained the Invisalign method to me and I decided to go for it. It was the right solution for me at my age of 56 at the time and for my busy lifestyle. Soon after I started Invisalign I started making other decisions about my health that I had not anticipated. I started dieting and walking and soon lost 15 pounds. I then hired a concierge doctor in Durham and had a very thorough physical. Then I stepped up my exercise to include running. In 3 months I had lowered my cholesterol by 75 points. Then I hired a personal trainer who I still work out with 2-3 times per week for 10 months and have no plans to stop. I ran a 5k three months later. 4 months later I added cycling to my weekly routine and now go on rides as long as 75 miles per day with my husband. Our marriage of 34 years is rejuvenated and my life is so great. I just celebrated my 57th birthday and I haven’t felt this good my whole life. Thank you Dr. Wilson and staff for kick starting my transformation. Who would have thought things would have turned out this way? Maybe you did but I didn’t. Thanks again!”
