You have crooked teeth and you want to get them fixed but you cannot decide which type of treatment is best for you.
You have traditional metal braces, Invisalign, Six Month Smiles, Fast Braces, PowerProx and others. They all accomplish the desired result, but in different ways.
Most people are familiar with traditional braces. Metal brackets and wires get the job done but come with a variety of drawback including they are not pleasant to look at, they can rub sores in your mouth and they can be really uncomfortable.
Invisalign is extremely popular. The clear aligners accompanied by the simplicity of the treatment make them a popular choice. You can find out more about Invisalign (here).
Six Month Smiles
This is a popular treatment option if you are an adult. This treatment uses clear brackets and tooth colored wires and are barely visible at a conversational distance.
They work by only straightening the teeth you see when a person smiles. Generally the front 6 to 8 teeth.
Treatment times are generally 6 months or less and the results are amazing.
Fast Braces and PowerProx also use a bracket system and wires to pull the teeth into place and each have fairly short treatment times also.
How Do You Know What To Choose
If you have crooked teeth, then you want to get them fixed. Not just because of the looks but because they can cause other oral health issues.
Bacteria can hide in the cracks and crevices of your teeth and when the bite is not aligned properly, you will experience unnecessary wear and even cracking or chipping.
Getting your teeth straightened really starts with a quality and in depth exam using the best imaging technology possible. In our office we have 3D Imaging that really gives us the best look at your teeth and bone.
