Orthodontic treatment options for adults at Belle Mead Orthodontics

If you're an adult with any of the aforementioned dental issues or others, it's a sure sign that you require orthodontic treatment. At Belle Mead Orthodontics, we believe you are not too old to achieve a brilliant smile. Our popular orthodontic solutions are:


Invisalign is one of the most efficient ways to treat adult orthodontic problems and achieve a straighter and attractive smile. It involves wearing a series of removable, comfortable, and transparent aligners.

You wear each set of aligners for about a week, taking them off only to floss, brush and eat. The longer you use the aligners, the more your teeth lock into the proper position until they're straightened.

Traditional braces

Although the first generally accessible orthodontic solution, traditional braces remain popular today, thanks to their cost-effectiveness and proven results. Braces have evolved through the years, with modern ones made with durable stainless steel and small brackets with efficient archwire material.

To get the best out of braces, you'll have to wear them for 1-2 years, after which you'll need to wear retainers for a while to prevent the teeth from falling out of alignment again.

More comfort, shorter treatment time, and discreet orthodontic care

Orthodontic technology has improved so young people and adults can benefit from the treatment. With options like Invisalign, you won't have to undergo treatment with metal braces sticking out your mouth.

In addition, Invisalign is a clear aligner. So others won't notice its presence, ensuring discreet orthodontic care. With Invisalign, you also won't have to endure episodes of pain to get a prettier smile, as it is super convenient.

At Belle Mead Orthodontics, we offer remote dental monitoring for busy individuals like you, allowing you to submit progress photos and make treatment-related inquiries without scheduling appointments, reducing the number of trips you make to the office.
