What is Short Term Orthodontics?
Adult braces and Short-term orthodontic treatments have quickly gained popularity in recent years – and with traditional orthodontic treatment taking up to two years it’s easy to understand why.
These systems are able to straighten teeth quickly – in a matter of just months – by only focusing on the teeth that are visible when you smile. This can be completed by using brackets and wires on teeth or by using clear aligners to move the teeth. They’re also very discreet: with clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires or clear aligners, which all blend well with your teeth compared to the traditional metal braces.
Short-term orthodontics isn’t right for everyone, but if your priority is the appearance of your front teeth, and you are not too concerned about moving all the teeth into the perfect relationship with each other, fast braces can provide a quick and affordable alternative to comprehensive orthodontic treatment. The treatment times are 4-9 months with treatments on average lasting 6 months.
