Bye-Bye Braces!

Bye-Bye Braces!
Posted on 09/02/2015

A straight, beautiful smile comes with many advantages, such as improved self-confidence and better oral hygiene. That’s why wearing braces is almost like a rite of passage for many adolescents. It’s common to see teens walking around with a mouthful of metal. Not everyone, however, has the opportunity to straighten their teeth in their youth. Many adults dreaming of a beautiful smile may feel as if they’ve missed their chance to have their teeth straightened. Furthermore, metal braces can be conspicuous. Well, we at Curry Orthodontics have some good news for those adults. Nowadays, technology has advanced to the point where adults can wear clear braces or Invisalign and straighten their teeth discreetly and comfortably! We’ve outlined the advantages of these alternatives to traditional metal braces for adults below. 

Clear Braces

There’s more than meets the eye with Damon Clear Braces! At Curry Orthodontics, we provide Damon brackets to our patients, as they are a more comfortable and efficient way to straighten your teeth. The clear versions of these brackets have many advantages, including: 

  • A more natural look to your smile without the obvious presence of metal brackets. 
  • State-of-the-art polycrystalline alumina material that is stain-resistant to coffee, red wine, and other agents.
  • Tie-less brackets that will move your teeth into place more comfortably than traditional braces.


At Curry Orthodontics, we are proud to offer the option of Invisalign to our patients. It’s the best option for adults wanting to straighten their teeth without being obvious and without changing their schedule or routine. Invisalign uses state-of-the-art technology to create custom plastic aligners for your teeth. The aligners are changed out every few weeks until correct alignment is achieved. The advantages of Invisalign include: 

  • Removability, so you can eat whatever you'd like and brush and floss more easily.
  • Virtually undetectable aligners; the high quality plastic ensures that you will maintain a discreet look.
  • Being more comfortable than regular braces, since the soft and flexible material will not scratch or irritate the inside of your mouth.
