Whatever your reason might be, you are now grown and wondering:
At Ocean Orthodontics, we believe two things:
Everyone deserves to have a beautiful smile no matter what their age is.
It is never too late to get started.
We understand the unique orthodontic concerns you may have as an adult and we are prepared to address those with treatments that are perfectly suited to the needs and preferences of adults.
We do recommend starting braces in childhood when it is easier to correct orthodontic irregularities. However, you can still benefit from braces even if your childhood years are far behind you.
Improved oral health
A more youthful and sophisticated appearance
A more comfortable and balanced bite
Lowered risk of gum recession and enamel erosion
Access to a wider range of discreet and comfortable orthodontic treatment options
Most importantly, new orthodontic technologies have yielded treatment options that are also virtually invisible.
Like many other adults, you may be concerned about how you will look while wearing braces. This is natural since braces are typically associated with a childlike appearance.
We offer advanced orthodontic treatments that can help you to straighten your teeth discreetly.
You can opt to have traditional braces with a tooth-coloured ceramic finish. The result blends in with your natural teeth so well that your braces will not be readily noticeable.
We also provide Invisalign® here at Ocean Orthodontics. These clear aligners are an excellent choice for busy adults who wish to maintain their professional image because they can be removed for special events and photo ops.
When you visit Ocean Orthodontics in Maroochydoore or Warana, you will experience the latest orthodontic techniques in a relaxing and welcoming environment. Our team is constantly learning new ways to help more adults on the Sunshine Coast to benefit from orthodontic treatment.
For example, at our Maroochydore location, we offer digital 3D scanning with iTero® technology. This eliminates the need for messy dental impressions.

There is no official age cutoff for getting braces. All that matters is having good oral health and being able to take good care of your teeth while having orthodontic treatment. Adults of any age can benefit from having a more beautiful smile with straighter teeth. Schedule an appointment to discuss your individual qualifications with one of our orthodontists to find out if braces are right for you.
It depends on what kind of braces you get. Traditional fixed braces require special daily cleaning to keep your teeth healthy and can limit the types of foods you are able to eat. Clear aligners, on the other hand, are removable and will not require any special changes in your regular daily diet or oral hygiene routine. Choosing a discreet braces option will allow you to go about your daily life without making any dramatic changes to your appearance.
It is true that there are more financial resources and insurance plans that cover orthodontic treatment for children. However, paying for adult braces may be easier than you think. At Ocean Orthodontics, we offer several flexible payment plans and financing options to our adult patients to make treatment as affordable as possible.
Even if you do not mind having teeth that look crooked, it is important to at least consider the health benefits of straightening them. Getting braces at any age can help improve your oral health, balance out your bite and boost your confidence.
