Need braces for adults or teenagers in Barcelona?
Are you unhappy with the appearance of your smile but reluctant to start orthodontic treatment for fear of having to wear highly visible metal braces for many months? We understand.
However, you should not forget that orthodontics allows you to correct not only the alignment of your teeth, and in this sense the aesthetics of your smile, but also the functions of chewing, phonation, swallowing and breathing.
In addition, orthodontics also improves dental hygiene because teeth and gums are easier to maintain once the teeth are better positioned. It is also one of the techniques that can correct TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders and all that is associated with them, such as difficulty chewing, limited mouth opening, night-time bruxism, etc.
Fortunately, there are now many invisible orthodontic techniques that allow adults and teenagers to benefit from braces without compromising aesthetics. At Turó Park Clinics we offer lingual orthodontics and Invisalign for those who need to realign their teeth discreetly.

Invisible orthodontics : the alternative to braces for adults and teens
With lingual orthodontics, the braces or brackets attach to the back of your teeth, so that they are not visible when you smile.
Lingual orthodontics work best for adults and adolescents who already have all of their permanent teeth (with the exception of the wisdom teeth). Patients typically complete treatment with lingual braces in 18 months.
Our English-speaking orthodontist works in close collaboration with a computer technician to design the system of brackets and pins attached to your teeth and the dental arch which gradually moves the teeth with adjustments over time.
The advantages of lingual braces
Besides being completely invisible while straightening your teeth, lingual braces effectively correct most bite problems.
In addition, lingual braces are custom fit to each patient, which ensures a higher level of comfort.
Our tips for adults with braces
The importance of caring for your teeth during your time in braces cannot be stressed enough. Our orthodontist recommends to brush your teeth after every time you eat using a a soft toothbrush with round bristles, or an electric toothbrush if you prefer. In addition, you can use a floss threader or orthodontic flosser to clean the spaces between your teeth.
If you use Invisalign aligners, you should also keep them clean, soaking them at least once a day in a denture cleaner or in Invisalign cleaning crystals and brushing them soflty.
In addition to maintaining a good oral hygiene, you also need to be more aware of what you eat when you wear braces. You should especially avoid sugary food, as it can cause plaque to build up around the brackets, as well as sticky and chewy foods that can become stuck and be hard to remove from braces.
