Adult Treatment

Orthodontics-Adult-BracesOur Scottsdale orthodontists see many adults who are interested in improving their smiles with braces. In fact, a growing number of the orthodontic patients we see at Affiliated Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics are adults. One reason so many adults are seeking treatment is because there have been many orthodontic appliances developed which are barely noticeable, and give adults more discreet choices when it comes to straightening their teeth.

In addition to enhancing one's appearance, having straight teeth also provides significant health benefits. For instance, when teeth are too close together, they are more difficult to clean, which can lead to tooth decay, periodontal disease and gum recession. which can have a significant impact on the health and wellness of patients.

The great news about adult orthodontic treatment in Scottsdale is that the new technology and appliances we use greatly reduce discomfort levels, cut down on the number of required office visits, shorten treatment time and allow you to choose from several treatment options. Without a doubt, now is a great time for adults to seek orthodontic treatment!

During the initial appointment, we will provide you with a thorough examination. If we determine that you would be a good candidate for adult braces or Invisalign, we will use our findings to devise the optimal treatment for your individual needs. At the consultation visit, we will outline your treatment plan and inform you of the length of treatment as well as the fee for your orthodontic care.

Many Treatment Options to Choose From

Our practice offers several types of braces including traditional metal braces that are much smaller, more attractive and more comfortable than the metal braces used in the past, and clear ceramic braces, which are ideal for patients looking for a more subtle way to improve their smiles. We also offer an orthodontic technology called SureSmile, that allows your orthodontist to have more control during the treatment process, and allows him or her to create a more precise treatment plan for your specific case.

Our orthodontists are also certified Scottsdale Invisalign providers, offering patients the opportunity to straighten their teeth with clear removable aligners. With no metal brackets or wires involved and the ability to remove the aligners when eating and when cleaning your teeth, Invisalign is an esthetic, convenient and hassle-free way to obtain a beautiful and healthy smile!
