Most people want straight teeth, but few of us want to commit to the time and effort necessary to get them. We want the method that will give us the least pain in the least amount of time while still giving us the smile we’ve always wanted. Unfortunately, orthodontia is complicated and there often isn’t a quick fix. Especially when dealing with permanent adult teeth, there are a lot of factors that need to be considered.
Though the best orthodontic option for your mouth may not be the quickest, it is important to prioritize the success of the alignment process. After all, you don’t want to rush the treatment and end up with less than desirable results. However, we understand not wanting to be in braces or retainers forever. That’s why we’re going to share the fastest way to get straight teeth without rushing the process.
Your mouth is unique
When moving teeth in the jawbone it’s crucial to work at the patient’s pace. Teeth straightening processes have to work with biological processes to align your teeth. Trying to accelerate the natural biological changes can lead to damage to the teeth and surrounding tissues. Therefore, even the fastest way to straighten teeth is limited by your body’s natural capabilities. Everyone is different, so you may find yourself wearing traditional braces for anywhere from a few months to a few years.
For many people, orthodontics conjures up images of time, pain, and money necessary to get straight teeth. These are things that affect our considerations when getting braces and can even put people off of the idea. However, methods like accelerated orthodontics allows you to significantly reduce the length of your treatment. Vibration technology is a technology used in conjunction with Invisalign or braces. By using this device for just a few minutes a day, you can significantly cut your treatment time.
The best solution for your teeth
Though there is no magic solution that will give you straight teeth quickly and easily, but there are ways to do so in less time with less pain. Whether you choose to augment traditional braces, invisible braces or Invisalign with accelerated orthodontics or not, you can make your dental treatment work for you. A consultation with an orthodontic screening to determine whether metal braces or Invisalign is right for you, is a great start.
