Adult Braces are More Popular Than Ever

Have you ever noticed that celebrities always seem to have flawless teeth? Their perfect pearly whites grin at you from the big screen and the pages of magazines. The truth is that stars aren’t all born that way. Some have even sported orthodontic gear on the red carpet!

For instance, big stars like actor Tom Cruise and country singer Faith Hill have made braces downright fashionable.

In the past, adults  – both celebrities and not - may have been hesitant to inquire about using braces to straighten their crooked teeth. One common misconception about braces is that they only work in young mouths; however, braces do work effectively in adulthood.

You may also be concerned about the appearance of braces; however, modern alternatives to traditional braces have made orthodontia more palatable to adults. The development of discreet orthodontic treatments, like ceramic brackets and Invisalign, have encouraged more adults than ever to seek treatment.

The American Association of Orthodontics (AAO) reported that the number of adult orthodontic patients increased by 14 percent between 2010 and 2012. Regardless of your age, our team at Dr. Kaplansky's office can help you achieve your smile goals through comprehensive orthodontic treatment.


Invisalign is a method of repositioning teeth using clear, almost undetectable aligner trays. Pop star Justin Bieber reportedly used clear aligners to straighten his teeth. This type of very subtle treatment may also be appropriate for professionals and other adults who are hesitant to wear visible wire-and-bracket braces.

Besides the aesthetic benefits, Invisalign allows you to take aligners out for effective brushing and flossing.


Traditional braces use the wire-and-bracket system. The bracket is attached to the tooth, and a wire is fastened to the bracket with a small elastic band called a ligature elastic. This system can correct even most severe bad bites. What makes our braces special is that the brackets are designed to only exert very light forces on teeth making treatment more comfortable and actually faster than other bracket systems. It's called "Light Force Orthodontics" and Dr. Kaplansky has achieved a prestigious Diplomate status in the Light Force America dental society.
