Types of Braces for Adults

Traditional braces

These are strong metallic or tooth coloured ceramic braces with individual brackets cemented onto each tooth. These brackets are connected with an arch wire which exerts constant gentle pressure onto the teeth.


These are clear, tray-shaped aligners which are placed for a certain amount of time daily. They are nearly invisible, can be removed whenever necessary, and these are more comfortable than the traditional braces.

Adelaide Adult Braces FAQs

What types of braces are available in Adelaide?

Adelaide offers a wide range of braces to cater to various orthodontic needs. Traditional metal braces are commonly available and are known for their effectiveness. For those seeking less visible options, ceramic braces and clear braces are popular choices.

Another alternative gaining popularity, especially among adults and teenagers, is Invisalign, which consists of clear, removable aligners. Lingual braces, which are attached to the back of the teeth and are invisible from the front, are also an option provided by some clinics. Additionally, lingual braces, which are attached to the back of the teeth, are offered for individuals prioritising aesthetics however they can severely impact speech in some cases.

How much do braces typically cost in Adelaide?

The cost of braces in Adelaide varies depending on the type and complexity of the braces. Traditional metal braces are generally the most affordable option, with prices typically ranging between AUD 5,000 and AUD 8,000. Ceramic or clear braces, which are more aesthetically pleasing, tend to cost a bit more, usually around AUD 6,500 to AUD $10,000.

Invisalign aligners, known for their convenience and aesthetic appeal, are in a similar price range. These are approximate figures, and the actual cost can vary. Most clinics offer consultations to provide a more accurate cost estimate, and many have payment plans to help manage the cost.

How long does a typical braces treatment last in Adelaide?

The duration of braces treatment in Adelaide typically ranges from 18 to 24 months, but it can vary depending on the individual’s orthodontic needs. Simple adjustments might take less time, whereas more complex alignments and bite corrections can take longer. Factors such as the patient’s age, the type of braces used, and adherence to treatment recommendations also influence the treatment length. Regular appointments for adjustments are essential for the progress of the treatment.Other treatments such as 6 Month Smiles may take only 6 months to achieve a straight smile. Dr Jack uses many of these techniques to reduce the time taken with braces.

Are there any age restrictions for getting braces in Adelaide?

There are no strict age restrictions for getting braces in Adelaide. While braces are often associated with children and teenagers, adults can also undergo orthodontic treatment. The primary consideration is the health of the teeth and gums. Children typically start treatment between the ages of 7 and 14, which coincides with the development of their permanent teeth. However, adults seeking to improve their dental alignment are increasingly common, and options like Invisalign make braces more appealing to this demographic.

What should I expect during the initial consultation for braces in Adelaide?

During the initial consultation for braces in Adelaide, a comprehensive examination of the teeth, jaws, and facial structure is conducted. This includes taking X-rays, photographs, and digital scans to assess the bite, teeth position, and any specific orthodontic issues.

The best person for your orthodontic needs will discuss your dental history, address any concerns, and understand your treatment goals. They will recommend the most suitable type of braces, explain the treatment process, estimated duration, and the costs involved. This consultation is also an opportunity for you to ask questions and discuss any apprehensions. The aim is to provide a clear understanding of the treatment plan and to ensure it is tailored to your individual needs.
