There are two common misconceptions about teeth straightening.
The first is that straightening treatments need to be performed while you are young in order to be effective. The second is that the only means of straightening teeth is with traditional braces.
While the expert orthodontists at Yardley Ortho feature highly effective teeth straightening services using traditional braces and treat many young people, we are glad to inform Yardley teeth straightening patients that neither of these notions is accurate. Teeth straightening treatments at Yardley Ortho produce dramatic improvements among patients of all ages, including teeth straightening for adults. And our treatment options include many innovative and effective alternatives to traditional braces.

Yardley Teeth Straightening Options for Adolescents and Teens
Yardley Ortho offers a number of orthodontic teeth straightening services for adolescents and teens. Listed below are our key services for these age groups:
- Traditional Braces
Braces are the most common and familiar treatment for adolescents and teens with malocclusion (crooked or crowded teeth). Braces not only straighten the teeth; they also correct the alignment of the upper and lower jaws.
- Palatal Expanders
Palatal expanders work to increase the space along the roof of the mouth and upper jawline, to help address crooked, crowded teeth, posterior crossbite, impacted teeth, and breathing issues.
- Teen Invisalign
Teen Invisalign is an exclusive alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed during meals.
Yardley Teeth Straightening Options for Adults
If you did not undergo teeth straightening treatment as a child or teen, or if you have experienced tooth movements since your youth treatments, it doesn’t mean you have to spend the rest of your adult life with crooked teeth. Yardley Ortho offers straightening options specifically designed for adults.
- Traditional Braces
While braces are most commonly prescribed for teens, adult braces can produce equally impressive results. Many adult braces options have less metal for reduced visibility.
Invisalign aligners are made from clear plastic. They are easily removable and are one of the best options for adults who wish to avoid the appearance of braces.
- Incognito Braces
Incognito braces are another exclusive alternative to traditional braces. Attached to the inside surface of the teeth rather than the exterior, they straighten your teeth without covering your smile
