Orthodontic Treatments For Adults
Braces and orthodontic treatments are not just for children. Almost half of our patients are adults requiring adult orthodontic treatments. Modern orthodontic treatments by experienced Orthodontists can help treat dental concerns for patients of all ages, so if you have a bite discrepancy, crooked teeth, overlapping teeth, a misaligned jaw, ‘buck’ teeth or one of many other dental complaints, Orthoworx can help find the adult brace you need.
See the smile, not the brace
Modern braces work hard to fix your smile. Cosmetic braces (including the Invisalign range) treat your condition without attracting unwanted attention. As a Platinum Elite Invisalign Provider, Orthoworx offers the complete range of braces for adults, including Invisalign and ceramic braces.

Most health insurances don’t cover the cost of adult orthodontics. If you have private health care, you may have to consider purchasing ‘extras covers’ or upgrading your current plan to claim the benefits of orthodontic treatment for adults. Many private health insurers in Australia will contribute to orthodontic treatment including traditional braces, aligners and retainers as part of ‘Extras’ cover where Medicare can not.
While fixing crossbites whilst jaws and teeth are still in the developing stage is easier, and less complex, it is possible for orthodontists for adults to fix crossbites in adults. Adults with mild to moderate misalignment may get away with traditional orthodontic braces, but in some cases, adults may require jaw surgery and other invasive solutions as part of their treatment plan. Most orthodontists will suggest multiple treatment options to fix more serious crossbites, including orthodontic braces to move the teeth back into the correct position, using an expander to widen the jaws and a combination of aligners.
Adult braces are usually more expensive than children’s braces due to the longer treatment length. In Australia, the cost of ceramic braces can range from $5,000 to $8,500 for a standard 18-month treatment. Meanwhile, traditional metal braces can cost up to $8,000 or more.
Compared to children, it takes about two to three years for adult braces to deliver the desired outcomes on average. However, this is dependent on the circumstances and the severity of your orthodontic issue.

Braces, metal or ceramic, are just as viable a treatment option as lingual braces, Invisalign and retainers. With modern advancements orthodontic treatment is an option for most adults with crooked teeth or uneven bites, just as it is for children and teenagers. For some adults, the thought of having traditional braces is unappealing and could negatively impact their social and work lives. Thanks to leading industry technology, adult braces are now available in a much wider range of discrete options.
Whether you’re uncomfortable with your current smile, have trouble with maintaining oral hygiene due to the crooked placement of your teeth, or experiencing pain or oral discomfort from eating, opting for adult braces could be beneficial for you in the long run. Like children’s and teenagers braces, adult braces aren’t permanent. Once treatment ends, you’ll be left with a sparkling smile that you’ll love.
