Invisalign & Braces for Adults

Adult Orthodontics

Orthodontic treatment is not just for children and teens. As long as your teeth and gums are healthy, it’s never too late to straighten them! Healthy teeth can be moved at any age and in fact, more than half of our patients in our clinic are over the age of 18. Our office has treated individuals in their 50’s and even their 60’s.

Teeth shift with age, and some adults have found that their previously straight teeth have become overcrowded and crooked. This could cause jaw pain and make it difficult to clean the teeth.

Adults are seeking treatment to make it easier to bite, chew, speak and improve their overall health and self-esteem. A patient’s need and suitability for orthodontic treatment is not determined by age, but rather on each individual patient’s condition. Nothing is more beautiful than an impeccable, sparkling smile, and an attractive smile is a valid reason to want braces. Getting braces as an adult can not only dramatically improve your smile, it can also reduce premature wear and tear on your teeth, discomfort due to misaligned jaw position and reduce your chances for gum disease by making cleaning easier.

Does Treatment Differ with Adults?

When treating adults, we aim to keep things simple, the treatment objectives realistic and treatment times as short as possible. As you might expect, adults often have dental issues that younger patients don’t such as missing teeth, severe wear or gum disease. Adults’ facial bones have also stopped growing. So, we modify our treatment plans accordingly.

What Are My Options?

Recent technologies in treatment make it possible for adults to perfect their smiles with less discomfort, and shorter treatment times. Braces (clear/metal) and invisible braces (Invisalign/Incognito) are more comfortable and esthetic than in the past.

Now, through improved technology and techniques, orthodontics for adults can, in most cases, give perfect, lasting results. Nowadays, braces are comfortable, smaller and less visible than in days gone by. Here are some of the latest treatment options we offer:

  • The Damon Braces are self-ligating low friction allowing the arch wire to move freely and that means less force, faster treatment, fewer adjustment visits and far less discomfort and pain than ever before.

  • The Clear Ceramic Braces are worn just like metal braces, but they are the color of your teeth, so they are much less noticeable. They are more delicate than metal braces, so you need to be more careful of what you eat.

  • The Invisalign® System is also a discreet, effective teeth straightening alternative that's effective for adults of all ages.

  • The Lingual Hidden braces that are worn on the back of your teeth and are completely hidden could be another discreet option for your orthodontic needs.

How Much Does It Cost?

The cost of your orthodontic treatment depends largely on case complexity, the type of orthodontic brace and the duration of the treatment required.

We offer 15 minute FREE Initial Consultations with our specialist to discuss your orthodontic problems, treatment options and how much orthodontic will cost with a detailed quotation. If you decide to proceed with treatment, we will then book a 30 minute records appointment (digital x-rays, 3D scans of your teeth, photos) which will be followed by a follow-up 30 minute treatment planning discussion visit.

The cost for the Full Consultation is €130 for Adults and covers both appointments. This non-refundable consultation fee will be deducted from the overall cost of your orthodontic treatment if you decide to start treatment with us within the next 12 months.

Are Your Prices All-Inclusive?

Discounts and Tax Relief

Tax Relief is available on orthodontic treatment at the standard rate allowing patients claim back 20% of the costs through the Med2 scheme. A 10% discount is also available to second and subsequent family members. 

Are Your Fees Expensive?

Our fees are very competitive given that you will be treated by Dr. Kostas, the Orthodontic Specialist himself at each and every appointment and not by an Orthodontic Therapist or Assistant that works under his instructions. All orthodontic procedures will be carried out by the specialist with great attention to detail ensuring full control of your orthodontic treatment. That's what makes our services stand out.
