Fast treatment options
If you’re an adult wanting orthodontic treatment, you may be put off by the thought of having to wear braces for up to two years. The good news is, there are treatment options which could get you great results in a much shorter space of time.
How do fast braces work?
Here at Clear Smiles Orthodontics, we see many patients with wonderful smiles, even before treatment begins. But, while their smile may look great initially, it’s not quite perfect. Sometimes this may be the result of a crooked front tooth, or teeth that have previously been straightened with braces, slipping back into their old positions.
In these cases, long-term braces aren’t usually required; instead just a ‘quick fix’ can do the trick.
Types of fast braces
If you only need minor tooth correction, the treatments we are likely to recommend are Invisalign i7 (for cases taking just three months) and Invisalign lite (for cases which will take six months). Both of these fast treatment options use aligners which are specifically designed to correct minor cases. What’s more, because they use the same clear, virtually invisible, aligners as the standard Invisalign treatment, no-one will know you’re having treatment. Needless to say, it’s a popular treatment among our adult patients!
Treatment can also be speeded up with the use of AcceleDent technology, which uses soft vibrations to encourage the movement of your teeth.
How do I know if fast braces are for me?
Fast braces are a great option for patients who may have a big day coming up and want to ensure their teeth are perfect for photos. They’re also ideal for professionals who want to improve their appearance when speaking or presenting to clients.
Not all cases will be rectified with fast treatment, but if you have a minor concern about your teeth, book a consultation with us today and we can talk through your options with you.
