Surge in Adult Orthodontic Treatments
- Posted on: Sep 16 2014
Between 2010 and 2014, there has been a 14 percent increase in the number of adults seeking orthodontic treatment. Now, an average of 1.2 million people in the United States seek adult braces on a yearly basis – a number largely made possible by the advent of treatments such as Invisalign®.
Invisalign offers adults suffering from malocclusion an ideal alternative to wire and bracket braces. Made of soft, clear plastic, this adult orthodontic option is less obtrusive and uncomfortable than braces, and may even reduce treatment time by 12 to 24 months. During your adult orthodontic consultation with one of our Mesa family dentists it can best be determined if Invisalign is the right option for your smile.
Health Benefits of Invisalign
Because Invisalign aligners can be removed for eating and tooth cleaning, this orthodontic option does not impact diet or oral health. During Invisalign treatment you can continue to eat a well-balanced diet including fresh fruits and vegetables and to brush and floss in the same way you always have. These benefits enable you to maintain optimal oral and systemic health during your entire treatment period.
If you are interested in learning more about the benefits of Invisalign, please contact Scott T. LeSueur D.D.S & Charles A. Dodaro, D.D.S. to schedule an appointment today. We provide orthodontic services in Mesa for adults living in Phoenix, Tempe, and surrounding Arizona communities.
