In the meantime, take a look at the alternatives to traditional metal braces we offer!
Chances are that you’ve heard of this popular orthodontic solution. People love Invisalign because it’s virtually invisible and incredibly comfortable. Your colleagues and friends might not even realize you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment!
Invisalign consists of a series of clear plastic aligners that are custom made to fit your teeth flawlessly. All you have to do is wear an aligner for about 20 to 22 hours a day. You’ll take it out during meals and when you brush and floss. Every week or so, you’ll exchange your aligner for the next one in the series.
Invisalign is a great orthodontic solution for adults on the go. In fact, the treatment was actually invented by an adult orthodontics patient who realized that clear aligners could be used to promote incremental changes in the position of teeth to gradually and comfortably achieve a straighter smile.
Because Invisalign is removable, it’s also great for active adults and teens. When you play sports with traditional metal braces, you run the risk of cutting your lip on a bracket or dislodging the hardware. But with Invisalign, you can simply remove your aligner before the big game. You’ll feel confident and will be able to perform at your best.
Plus, the average treatment time is only 12 months! Just think: By next year, you could have a more beautiful smile you’re proud to show off.
FastBraces may resemble traditional metal braces, but specially engineered brackets turbocharge your orthodontic treatment to give you a straighter smile in a matter of months.
How is that possible?
You might think that because FastBraces straightens teeth more quickly than traditional metal braces that it must require more force and be more painful. But that’s actually not the case. FastBraces works smarter, not harder, to correct crooked teeth.
In fact, clinical trials have shown that FastBraces actually moves your teeth with less friction than traditional braces, which results in more gentle movement of the teeth!
Here’s how it works. Traditional braces employ the use of square brackets and metal wires that move the tooth in two phases; the root of the tooth and the crown are moved separately. But FastBraces uses triangular brackets to move the crown and the root simultaneously to significantly cut down on treatment time.
This revolutionary orthodontic solution has actually been shown to straighten teeth in as little as three months!
Clear Ceramic Braces
Invisalign and FastBraces can fix minor to complex teeth and bite misalignment issues, but what if it turns out that neither treatment is right for you?
We can give you the effective teeth movement that traditional braces provide but without the mouthful of metal, thanks to clear ceramic braces. This orthodontic treatment uses clear brackets instead of metal ones to make them less noticeable.
Clear ceramic brackets also move teeth more gently than traditional metal brackets, so you’ll enjoy a more comfortable treatment.
