Over the years, orthodontics has expanded dramatically. More and more people are considering orthodontics to not only improve the appearance of their smile, but make basic tasks like at-home oral care easier. With the help of traditional metal braces as well as clear aligner systems, you don’t have to settle for one treatment over another. At Amaze Dental, you can choose a treatment that meets your needs, whether they be restorative, cosmetic or both! Call our office to find out which treatment may be the best for you!
Metal braces have been around for decades now and have largely been the go-to treatment for those trying to resolve severely crooked teeth or extremely uneven bites. Through a series of metal brackets and arch wires, our office can shift problematic teeth into a straighter and healthier position. It’s one of the most effective ways to remove gaps, stop crowding, and prevent overbites, underbites, crossbites, and open bites from putting stress on your jaw’s joints.
The clear aligner system from Invisalign has been around for nearly two decades and proven to be an extremely effective solution for crooked and misaligned teeth. While it’s generally reserved for more mild cases of crowding, gaps, crooked smiles or uneven bites, it is still one of the most clinically-proven treatments for shifting teeth safely and effectively. In a fraction of the time (approx. 8 to 12 months), you can achieve a straighter smile.
Do you want to straighten teeth as fast as possible but don’t want to use clear aligners to make it happen? Fastbraces are a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that delivers considerable results in about 100 days. This system still uses metal brackets and wires to straighten teeth, however, it gets the job done much faster because it skips the two-step process that‘s typically paired with traditional braces. Instead of spending the first year straightening the crown and the second year straightening the roots of teeth, Fastbraces performs both steps simultaneously.
If you care more about your smile’s appearance and only want to treat the teeth visible in your smile, Six Month Smiles may be the ideal treatment for you. Using targeted orthodontics, this treatment only shifts the teeth that appear when you smile, which is in stark contrast to what traditional metal braces do. Six Month Smiles does not address back teeth, an area that takes a notoriously long time to treat. And, because all of the materials used are either tooth-colored or transparent, you can minimize their appearance as you undergo treatment!
