Treatment Options

According to the American Association of Orthodontists, 20% of all orthodontic patients in America are more than 21 years of age. While traditionally, braces were seen as dental treatment for teenagers, today’s patients are realizing that adults have options, too. We offer a variety of braces to meet the individual needs and desires of each of our adult patients, and retainers are always included for free with treatment.

Traditional Braces

ABQ Orthodontics specializes in braces and with our focused care, you can rest assured you will receive treatment from experienced professionals who understand how to give you your best-looking smile! Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces used in orthodontics, as they are the tried-and-true method to straightening teeth, regardless of the severity of the case.

Metal braces are made of high-grade stainless steel and utilize brackets, small rubber bands, and archwires to straighten your teeth during the course of your treatment process. They have progressed a long way in the past decade, so they can now ensure better comfort while you wear them.

Clear Braces

As effective as metal braces, clear ceramic braces are a popular choice for adults who want to make a less noticeable statement with their commitment to a healthier smile. You’ll be struck by the natural look of these smooth, sculpted, and completely clear ceramic braces, which will not stain or discolor and which can be blended in with your unique tooth shade.


For adults who don’t want the look or feel of traditional methods, we offer a clear alternative. Invisalign works by using a series of custom-made aligner trays that you wear over your teeth. The trays are made of clear plastic, are virtually invisible when worn, and move your teeth into their optimal position. This treatment is equal to traditional metal braces and typically is achieved in less time.

Benefits of Adult Orthodontics

No matter your age, straighter teeth provide multiple benefits for your oral health as well as your personal well-being. For adults, the advantages are even greater. They include:

  • Enhanced appearance & smile
  • Increased oral health
  • Improved self-confidence
  • Prevention of oral health issues like gum disease and tooth decay
  • Prevention of bone loss caused by improperly positioned teeth
  • Improved ability to bite and chew
