PHOENIX, AZ, October 29, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- One of the most common reasons patients visit the Desert Dentistry offices in Phoenix is because they are in need of orthodontic treatment. Some patients have malocclusions, or bite problems, such as underbites, overbites, or crossbites. Others have crooked teeth that cause them to feel self-conscious. Regardless of the problem, the staff at Desert Dentistry is prepared to provide highly effective orthodontic treatment that results in a beautiful, straight smile.
Orthodontic treatment is no longer thought of as something that is strictly for children or teenagers. Desert Dentistry provides effective orthodontic treatment for adults
as well. More adults than ever before are deciding to correct their smiles with orthodontic treatment. While exact treatments will vary depending on the individual case, patients are often able to choose between traditional metal braces and Invisalign clear braces.
Traditional Braces for Adults
Traditional braces are a highly effective way for patients to improve their smiles and correct bite issues. Metal brackets are bonded to the fronts of the teeth and wires are connected to apply force that will move the teeth into their proper places. Treatment length will vary depending on the individual case.
Adults should be aware that today's braces are much more attractive and much less noticeable than the braces they may remember from years past. Modern metal braces are created using high-grade stainless steel, and they're smaller and all-around less conspicuous. Traditional braces are often the most economical choice for patients.
Alternatives to Braces for Adults
Some patients desire a straighter smile without having to wear braces. For patients who are interested in adult braces alternatives
, Desert Dentistry provides the Invisalign system.
The Invisalign clear braces system is an effective way for patients to correct bite problems or fix crooked teeth. Patients wear custom-created plastic aligners over their teeth, changing to a new set every two weeks until the teeth are in their proper positions. Invisalign has become a popular choice for adult patients because the aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed at any time. Many patients also find Invisalign to be a more comfortable treatment, as the aligners are made of a smooth plastic. As with traditional braces, the treatment time for Invisalign patients will vary.
