In the recent years, number of adults seeking orthodontic treatment has significantly increased because of many factors including easier access to orthodontists, the availability of aesthetic treatment alternatives that make the appliance invisible, or improved awareness. Adults not only have malocclusions of different severity when they first arrive, but they also have additional restorative and periodontal considerations that need for interdisciplinary care that is well-coordinated. The two primary types of orthodontic therapy suggested for adult malocclusion are adjunctive and comprehensive. The goal of this article is to evaluate the various adjunctive orthodontic treatment methods and their treatment sequence for adult patients.
