Peoria orthodontics treatment can benefit both children and adults alike. Age shouldn’t be an issue since people now tend to retain their natural teeth throughout their lifetime. An increasing number of adults are choosing braces to straighten their teeth. That number of adults undergoing Peoria orthodontics treatment rose by 14% just between 2010 and 2012.
Whether you choose to get your teeth straightened in the fastest, least costly means available, or whether you are more concerned about aesthetics and/or comfort, here’s a look at some available options.
If you are afraid of being called metal mouth, or if you are concerned about not being taken seriously in the work place, Invisalign could be a good choice. The Invisalign orthodontics treatment plan is comprised of wearing custom made clear aligner trays that will be imperceptible to most people. You will need to change to a new aligner approximately every two weeks. Each aligner tray moves your teeth closer to the position your Peoria AZ dentist desires. Along with being more aesthetically pleasing, Invisalign is also more comfortable, with no wires to poke you. The drawbacks to Invisalign braces are that they are more expensive and your orthodontics treatment may take longer. Additionally, the aligners must be worn about 22 hours per day in order to be effective, so they require maturity and responsibility, and may not work well for children. The aligners should only be removed at mealtime and in order to brush your teeth. In addition, you may not be a good candidate for Invisalign, since they are not suitable to correct every possible type of problem.

Some adults believe that it is too late to improve their smile and their oral health. Unattractive, obvious metal braces can somewhat skew their perception of how and when it is appropriate to correct your smile. But with Clear Correct any time is the right time. With these revolutionary clear trays, straightening your teeth and brightening your smile is priority number one.
Misaligned and overlapping teeth in adulthood can sometimes be viewed as unattractive and unprofessional. Don’t let your self esteem dwindle because of these things. With ClearCorrect, you can straighten your teeth discreetly and invisibly so as to not draw attention like with obvious metal braces seen in that of teenagers.
Today’s metal braces are quite different than the old-fashioned metal braces. The brackets are made of high quality stainless steel, and are lighter, smaller and smoother than the older brackets, and the archwires are more flexible and lighter weight too. Rather than being bashful about their tinsel teeth many people today decorate them with colorful rubber bands to make a fashion statement or support their favorite sports team.
Of course there are still a few negatives such as dealing with some slight discomfort from pokey wires and brackets, but metal Peoria AZ braces are still the most popular method in use today since they do the job quickly and efficiently and at the most economical price.
Another less obvious method of teeth straightening is clear braces. The brackets for these braces are made of ceramic which can either be clear or tooth colored, and the wires are tooth colored, making them much less obvious than metal braces. Other than the appearance, clear braces work along the same principle as metal braces. The drawbacks to clear braces are that they can be more costly, and also that ceramic brackets aren’t as strong as metal brackets so your dentist may need to adjust them more gently which may increase treatment time. You will also have to be more careful to avoid any foods your dentist warns against or you may break a ceramic bracket. Last but not least, clear brackets stain rather easily, which further limits your choices in foods and drinks.
