When Might Adults Need Braces?

Going to the orthodontist as an adult is more common than you may believe. Many adults have lived much of their lives with a smile they don't love. An aligned smile is a powerful confidence boost, and we'll help you get there. We offer adult orthodontics so you can enjoy a happier and healthier smile.

Any adult with untreated orthodontic issues can qualify for treatment, regardless of age. For many, orthodontic care is a necessary process that can prevent speech impairment, gum disease or further stress on your bite. If you have any of the following dental problems, we may recommend adult braces or aligners:


  • Crooked or crowded teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Open bite
  • Jaw alignment issues
  • Protruding teeth


Choices of Braces for Adult Teeth

Many adults are looking for quick or discreet orthodontic treatment. When you come to Unger Orthodontics, we give you options based on your individual needs and lifestyle. Choose from any of the following adult orthodontics treatments when you visit our Saint Peters office:


  • Invisalign: Invisalign is a series of clear aligner trays that gradually shift your teeth to create a straighter smile. We recommend Invisalign for adults who prefer discreet treatment or want to remove their aligners while eating or brushing their teeth.
  • Metal braces: Adult metal braces are a tried-and-true alignment method for various dental needs. Made with stainless steel brackets, these fixtures adjust over time and guide your teeth in the right direction.
  • Clear braces: Clear braces, also known as ceramic braces, are similar to traditional metal fixtures. However, adult ceramic braces use clear or tooth-colored brackets to create a more discreet appearance.
