It’s never too late to get the smile you’ve always wanted – our adult braces in West Sussex are more popular than ever.

Teeth straightening as an adult is very effective and can bring about life-changing differences in how you feel about yourself. What’s more – there’s no need for clunky traditional metal braces. With the likes of Invisalign, adult braces are less conspicuous than ever.


We often see more commitment to following our teeth straightening guidelines from our adult patients compared to younger patients. This tends to result in a very successful outcome for those undergoing adult orthodontic treatment.

We’re passionate about finding the right orthodontic treatment for each patient’s specific needs at our clinic in West Sussex.

Adult orthodontics: Why it's not too late for a winning smile

Staring at ourselves on Zoom all day has given rise to the number of us seeking adult orthodontic treatment. Missing teeth or slight misalignment can make anyone self-conscious over their appearance when they smile or talk.

The introduction and popularity of clear braces have also made it easier to address orthodontic problems as an adult.

It’s safe to say that most of us wouldn’t choose to have unnecessary dental work and may shiver at the thought of having invasive, traditional braces as adults.

But with the introduction and popularity of solutions like Invisalign, orthodontic treatment on adults has never been easier and less noticeable.

What types of braces are available for adults?

There are several options available to you if you’re considering teeth straightening treatment:

Clear Aligners

Clear braces from Invisalign are one of the most popular choices for straightening teeth. The treatment consists of using sets of clear plastic aligners that will gradually shift your teeth into the desired position. These braces can be removed for eating and teeth cleaning, and are hardly noticeable when worn.

Clear Ceramic Braces

This treatment option comprises clear braces made from ceramic that work in the same way as traditional braces. Small brackets are fixed to the front surface of the teeth in a tooth-coloured material that makes them less noticeable than their metal counterparts.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are another discreet way to improve the alignment of your teeth. They are fitted behind the teeth which is why they’re sometimes called hidden braces. They’re very effective at moving the teeth but treatment time can take a little longer compared to Invisalign and traditional braces.

Metal Braces

Metal braces are still a highly effective teeth straightening treatment for adults. Advances in orthodontics have made these braces far more comfortable and less intrusive than they once were.

How long does orthodontic treatment take as an adult?

As adults, our teeth have generally settled into position and the bone metabolism and blood supply are reduced. Therefore tooth movement can take longer in adults than in children.

You also need to bear in mind that many adults will have had some form of restorative treatment on their teeth whether it’s fillings, crowns, dental implants or veneers. While it’s still possible for restored teeth to be treated, your dentist will need to take this into account when devising your treatment plan.

What is the oldest age to have braces?

There really is no age limit when it comes to adult braces. During consultation, it will be determined if you’re suitable for teeth straightening treatment but this is down to the condition of your existing teeth rather than your age.
