If you are looking for an orthodontic correction that’s inconspicuous, clear aligners like Invisalign® might be a perfect choice. The thin aligners make this one of the easiest forms of orthodontics because they can slide over your teeth easily.
Clear aligner systems like Invisalign include a series of clear trays created using a computer simulation. These will move the teeth gradually and are available to adult patients with specific orthodontic bite problems.
At your consultation, ask us if you are a candidate for a clear aligner treatment system like Invisalign.
Clear braces come with tooth-colored ceramic brackets which blend in with your natural smile. They are most popular with adult patients due to their cosmetic appeal.
The only drawback to ceramic brackets is that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.

Fixed Appliances Vs. Removable Appliances
At Orthodontic Associates, we believe you should be fully educated about your treatment. It’s helpful for patients around the Tampa Bay area to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances.
Dr. Adam attaches fixed appliances, like braces, to your teeth and won’t take them off until you complete your treatment at Orthodontic Associates.
If Dr. Adam prescribes a removable clear aligner system like Invisalign, you’ll wear the trays most of the day, but you can take the trays out of your mouth whenever you’d like to.
Besides the noticeable differences, we use may use these treatments differently. Dr. Adam generally uses clear aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic issues and fixed appliances for more severe problems.
