Can you guess the Percentage of our Orthodontic Patients that are Adults?

There are more adult patients undergoing orthodontic treatment then ever before.  It is estimated that between 25-30% of all orthodontic patients are adults!  This estimate is consistent with the patients at Fishbein Orthodontics, as 1 in 3 of our patients are adults!  The number of adult patients has increased dramatically over the past decade.  Why are so many more adult patients seeking out Orthodontic treatment then ever before?

We believe that there are a number of reasons that more adults are seeking orthodontic treatment.  There are more esthetic and faster treatment options then ever before.  There has never been a better time to seek out orthodontic treatment as an adult!  These esthetic treatment options include Invisalign, InBrace, and Clarity.


Fishbein Orthodontics is the leading provider of Invisalign treatment in Pensacola, Navarre, Pace and Perdido.  In fact, Dr. Fishbein successfully treats the most Invisalign cases in and around the Pensacola area.


Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment system that works by stimulating your teeth through clear aligners.  The trays are easily removable, and should be removed to eat, drink, brush and floss.  The invisalign trays are worn for approximately 22 hours per day, and each tray is worn 1 to 2 weeks depending on your treatment plan.  At Fishbein Orthodontics, we will take an Itero Scan of your teeth, so no dental impression is needed!  Dr. Fishbein will be lecturing on Invisalign to 500 orthodontists at the MKS meeting this year in Dallas.



InBrace braces are braces that go behind your teeth.  They are customized to your specific teeth, and because of that they work faster then traditional braces.  Fishbein Orthodontics has treated a large number of successful InBrace cases as many of our patients like this ‘invisible braces’ option.


Because InBrace braces are placed behind your teeth, they are practically invisible to those around you.  InBrace braces are perfect for adults who want invisible braces, and do not want the responsibility of wearing Invisalign trays.



Fishbein Orthodontics is proud to use 3M Clarity braces, the top clear braces on the market.  Clarity ceramic brackets are clear, and do not show up in most photographs!  Fishbein Orthodontics also provides clear wires to go with these clear braces for an even better clear braces experience.  These brackets are also removed easily unlike other clear braces on the market, which is safer to protect the enamel on your teeth.

Clarity brackets are the perfect option for patients who want to wear traditional braces, but don’t want the braces to show up in their pictures!  Many of our patients choose this option, especially if they want their pictures to show a natural smile without braces!

With so many esthetic treatment options available at Fishbein Orthodontics, there has never been a better time for adult patients to seek out orthodontic treatment.  As always, Fishbein Orthodontics offers a free consultation to see which esthetic option is best for you.  We also offer Saturday appointments so you don’t have to take off work and school!
