Frequently Asked Questions About Adult Braces
Question: Will my braces be noticeable?
Answer: Often, people feel apprehensive about receiving braces. After all, a mouth full of metal brackets and wires can make a person feel self-conscious. Thankfully, breakthroughs in modern orthodontics allow us to offer smaller, less noticeable, and more comfortable braces.
Question: What is Invisalign?
Answer: Instead of traditional braces, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gently and gradually reposition teeth. The aligners are removable and practically invisible. Invisalign is a popular option with both teens and adults.
Question: Does Dr. Alpan offer lingual braces?
Answer: Yes. With Incognito, you can have your braces placed on the backside, or tongue facing side, of your teeth. As a result, your braces remain completely hidden from view. We offer both Incognito Light, in which we only correct the front eight teeth, and Incognito Full, which addresses your entire smile.
