Invisalign Offers You Discreet Orthodontic Treatment
If you only think of traditional metal braces when the word “orthodontics” is mentioned, you deserve to know all about the innovative Invisalign treatment. Invisalign has been available to the public for well over two decades now, and has straightened the smiles of over 6 million happy people!
Rather than metal brackets, bands, and wires, Invisalign treatment uses clear plastic teeth aligners that exert gentle pressure on your teeth to move them into their proper positions. Our patients love the smooth, metal-free plastic, and report little or no trouble getting used to them.
Feel free to remove the aligners any time you want – for eating, brushing, or for a special occasion. Just be sure to wear them for at least 22 hours a day to maximize your treatment. You could complete your treatment in as few as 12 months.
Plus, the clear design of the aligners makes them nearly invisible to others. Your friends and coworkers probably won’t notice them unless you point them out.
Clear Ceramic Braces Fix the Toughest Orthodontic Cases
As another discreet alternative to traditional metal orthodontics, clear ceramic braces are a big hit with our patients. Some patients require the sturdy structure and massive teeth-straightening power of standard braces, but would like their orthodontics to be more discreet.
That’s where clear braces come in. Instead of metal brackets, your dentist will attach tooth-colored, translucent brackets and rubber bands to your teeth. Even though you’ll wear a metal wire, your orthodontics will be much less noticeable than traditional metal braces.
If you’re not a good candidate for Invisalign or Fastbraces®, then clear ceramic braces may be just what you’re looking for. This type of orthodontics can straighten the most crooked smiles and even up the most troublesome bite.
Complete Your Fastbraces® Treatment in Just a Few Months
Fastbraces® is a completely revolutionary way to straighten teeth. Using triangular brackets (rather than traditional square ones) and a heat sensitive wire, this orthodontic care can straighten your teeth in as few as three months.
The secret to the success of Fastbraces® is that its hardware straightens both the crowns (the white part) and the roots of your teeth at the same time. Traditional metal orthodontics usually focuses on correcting the crowns during the first year and the roots during the second.
This unique orthodontic care dramatically cuts your treatment time. Rather than two years or longer, you can complete your treatment in months. Plus, Fastbraces® is suitable for adults as well as kids age 13 and up. Our patients love this treatment because it offers them a quick way to straighten their teeth, plus it usually results in more comfortable treatment than regular braces.
No matter what kind of teeth straightening care you need, Beaumont Family Dentistry offers you orthodontic options to help you or your child. Call us today at one of our three convenient Lexington locations:
