Orthodontics for Adults
Are Adult Braces for Me?
The popularity of braces among adults is growing and showing no signs of slowing down. Technology offers a variety of strategies to complete treatment quickly and effectively – without interrupting your lifestyle.
For adults, it is important that you are a good candidate. However, as long as you have relatively healthy jawbone density and gum tissue, you can be a candidate for orthodontic treatment. Whatever your orthodontic needs might be, we can help give you the healthier, straighter smile you’ve always wanted.
While you are considering your options, you have to take into account the time and financial commitment, as well as the aesthetic impact, that braces may have on you. A typical course of orthodontic care takes about 12 to 24 months, based on the condition of your teeth and the severity of misalignments. If you opt for a treatment that involves aligners such as Invisalign or retainers, the length of treatment depends on how faithfully you wear it. However, Dental Depot offers a variety of treatment options for Phoenix area patients that will fit into your lifestyle and budget. Yes, adult braces are doable!
A New Generation of Braces
Since you were a teen, orthodontic treatment has made many major improvements – especially when it comes to the experience of having braces. Thanks to advanced procedures and technology, most patients enjoy shorter treatment times, less discomfort and greater overall results.
There is also a variety of alternatives to traditional braces such as clear Invisalign aligners. At Dental Depot, we offer choices in orthodontic appliances, based on your situation and needs. In addition to traditional braces, we also offer silver Damon brackets and more discreet options, including clear Damon brackets, and Invisalign, which are clear, custom-made aligners that gradually move teeth into position based on your personalized treatment plan.
