Do I need braces again as an adult?

Sometimes adults need braces even though they had them as children. Usually this is due to not wearing your retainer regularly after you had your braces removed. If you're in the Portsmouth area, we have the adult braces solution for you.

Generally, adults who need a second set of braces have teeth that have shifted mildly. This is easily corrected with our adult braces options. With the invention of clear braces and Invisalign®, you won't have to endure more years of metal mouth.

In consultation with Dr. Michael Folck, you can discuss your options and decide which orthodontic solution is right for you.
  • Clear braces are more like traditional braces that attach directly to your teeth. Some patients are hesitant to choose traditional braces because of the difficulty maintaining dental hygiene with braces.
  • Invisalign provides a convenient solution with removable plastic aligners that are custom-made for your mouth.
  • Porcelain veneers, sometimes called instant orthodontics, can cover your natural teeth and be a great way to restore your smile without months of wearing braces.

If you are looking for adult options for braces in the Portsmouth area, please call 877-206-3444 or contact Dr. Michael Folck, DDS today to schedule your initial consultation.
