What are adult orthodontics?
Adult orthodontics are a braces systems created especially for late teens and adults. Adult orthodontics typically handle many of the issues this group of people want most–namely, to get a beautiful, straight smile. Though adult orthodontics systems often can repair some of the more complex issues with bites, etc, their main function is to provide attractive smiles.
What adult orthodontics braces systems does Salt Lake Dental Care provide?
Dr. Blackwood is pleased to offer two amazing adult orthodontics braces options.
Invisalign® Clear Braces
- Invisalign clear braces are a fantastic adult orthodontics option. Invisalign clear braces are invisible plastic aligner trays that give you the confidence to smile, laugh and get your picture taken all the while you are getting your teeth straightened.
- Invisalign clear braces are far less painful than traditional braces methods because they use a consistent, gradual, progressive pressure to straighten your teeth. No jerking pain when the wires are tightened with metal braces. And because they are made of plastic, there is no metal to cut and scar your gums and the inside of your mouth.
- Invisalign clear braces are fantastic when you’re dealing with dental hygiene. When you want to brush and floss your teeth, you simply remove the trays.
- Invisalign clear braces usually take less time than metal braces. This is one of the big advantages to this adult orthodontics option.
- With the Invisalign clear braces system, you change out the aligner trays every two weeks, but Dr. Blackwood will give you several sets of trays at one visit. This saves you time because you don’t need to come in to see us as often.

Six Month Smiles®
- Six Months Smiles is an excellent adult orthodontics system because they take six months to give you a beautiful smile. Yes, you read that right.
- Six Months Smiles are less painful because the brackets placed on your teeth are made of plastic so no metal that can cut or scar your soft tissue. Additionally, the Six Months Smiles system uses a wire that is bent in the shape you need for straight teeth and bends to move your teeth consistently and quickly.
- Six Months Smiles is created to straighten the teeth seen in your smile so it is really an excellent adult orthodontics method.
- Six Months Smiles use clear brackets and a tooth-colored wire so they are almost undetectable.
