There are, however, some cases that simply require more traditional braces technology, especially those cases involving severe overcrowding.
This is one of the reasons that it is important to see a Phoenix Invisalign certified orthodontist rather than a general dentist. Most general dentists have very limited orthodontic training and can only offer Invisalign as an orthodontic solution. An orthodontist is able to evaluate both the clear aligner option as well as other orthodontic treatment plans so that you can choose the option that works best for you.
Invisalign for Adults
For adults who need braces, Invisalign Phoenix AZ is an excellent option. Not all adults want the look and feel of metal braces, and many working professionals feel that traditional metal braces would make them look too juvenile and undermine their credibility.
The clear, practically invisible aligners correct tooth position without broadcasting that you are wearing braces.
Any adult who wants a brilliant smile should contact Dunn Orthodontic offices in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Arcadia or Litchfield Park to see if you are a candidate for clear aligners.
The Process of Getting Invisalign Treatment
At your first free consultation with us, we’ll discuss your orthodontic needs and determine if Phoenix Invisalign is the right treatment for you. If it is, we will take X-rays and impressions of your teeth, which will be used to make customized aligners designed specifically to move your teeth into the correct positions over time.
As you change out these trays every one to two weeks, we’ll make sure we keep an eye on the progress by meeting with you periodically. Wearing your aligners the full 20 to 22 hours a day will help move your teeth into position right on schedule. Once your teeth have been corrected, we will fit you with a retainer, and you’ll have that sparkling smile you’ve always wanted.
