Your Helpful Guide To Adult Orthodontic Treatment

Here at Icon Orthodontics, we’re on a mission to let people know that there’s no age limit for achieving a beautiful smile! Our practice has successfully treated patients from ages 7 to 75, and we’ve seen how treatment can transform smiles and lives. Still, many adults we speak to are worried that the chance for straighter teeth has passed them by. The good news is you’re never too old to improve your oral health with orthodontics!

Have you spent years feeling uncomfortable with the way your teeth look or function? Would you like a more aligned smile but aren’t sure if traditional braces are for you? Have you been experiencing issues with your teeth or jaw for a while now and aren’t sure what can be done to relieve them? Whatever you’ve got going on with your smile, our expert team is here to help! Keep reading below to learn what we have to offer adult patients like you.

Your complimentary consultation with us

Your first visit to our Surprise or Glendale office is one of the most important appointments you’ll have. This is our chance to meet and get to know a bit about each other and discuss the concerns you have about your smile. During this complimentary consultation, you can expect our team to:

  • review your dental and medical history forms
  • provide a complete oral examination to determine if treatment is necessary
  • create a customized treatment plan for you based on your specific needs
  • discuss all financial information, insurance options, and any payment plans available to you

We want every patient to feel comfortable with the treatment process, and that begins with this initial consultation! Our team will ensure you’re fully informed about each step in your orthodontic journey, and we’re always happy to answer any questions you may have. You can trust us to provide you with all the information you need to determine which treatment is right for you.

Your investment in a healthier, happier smile

Once you’ve spoken with our doctors about your concerns, Dr. Sun or Dr. Sarpotdar will perform a painless but thorough examination of your mouth. They’ll create a customized treatment plan based on your unique needs and determine the necessary treatment fee. We’ll outline everything your treatment plan includes and the investment needed for your new smile during your consultation.

We understand that orthodontic treatment can be a significant expense for any family. However, we believe it’s an important investment in your health and appearance that will pay off in a big way for years to come! Our practice never wants finances to stand in the way of patients receiving the orthodontic treatment they need. To make the best treatment possible for you and your family, we offer the following:

  • Limited Treatment (minor movement of only the teeth of concern) starting under $3,000
  • Comprehensive Treatment (correction of bite and full alignment of all teeth for adolescents and adults) starting in the $4,000s
  • No-interest financing available
  • 5% Full-payment/cash upfront discount
  • Multi-family member discount
  • 5% Military, fire, police, and teacher discount
  • Start Treatment for as low as $99 down, $99/month (some exclusions apply)

For your convenience, Dr. Sarpotdar and Dr. Sun also offer an automatic draft from checking accounts or credit cards and accept all PPO insurance plans. For your convenience, our team is happy to review your insurance coverage and file the necessary paperwork on your behalf! We do whatever we can to eliminate any financial barriers standing between you and a healthy smile.

Orthodontic treatments for adult patients

The cutting-edge technology and efficient techniques available with modern orthodontics allow us to offer adult patients a wide variety of treatment options. These are more comfortable and customizable than ever before and allow our doctors to give you the results you desire without surgery or extractions in most cases. We offer the following treatments for adult patients.

Damon Metal Braces

The Damon system of metal braces features lighter, more comfortable brackets made of high-grade surgical stainless steel. Damon braces can straighten your teeth about 40% faster than traditional braces on average! This unique system also eliminates the need for elastics, putting less friction on your teeth and providing a more comfortable braces experience from start to finish.

Clear Braces

Clear braces work like traditional metal braces but come with the added benefit of clear brackets. When paired with clear, white, or tooth-colored elastics, this option can be an excellent solution for patients who want a discreet treatment method but aren’t a good fit for clear aligners. While these brackets are visually less prominent, they require more oral hygiene attention as they are larger and more brittle than their metal counterparts. For this reason, we tend to recommend them for teen and adult patients only.

InBrace Lingual Braces

InBrace lingual braces are similar to metal and clear braces, but instead of being affixed to the front surface of your teeth, the brackets are placed behind them for a truly hidden orthodontic experience! InBrace uses innovative GentleForce technology to provide gentle pressure that moves your teeth more comfortably and efficiently than other treatments. In some cases, patients will begin seeing results in as little as a few weeks.

Invisalign clear aligners

Instead of brackets, bands, and wires, the Invisalign system uses a series of clear aligners to move your teeth into the desired positions. These aligners are made from a unique SmartTrack material that is strong and durable but still made to fit comfortably over your own teeth. Since the aligners are invisible and removable, you can eat and drink whatever you want while you’re in treatment. Brushing and flossing are a whole lot easier, too! Our adult patients love the freedom and flexibility Invisalign offers.

Keep in mind that every option will have its own list of pros and cons, and not every treatment will be suitable for all patients. Working with experienced orthodontists like Dr. Sarpotdar and Dr. Sun will ensure you receive only the most appropriate treatment for your particular smile.
