For most people, achieving a healthy, beautiful smile is the reason for choosing to receive orthodontic care. If you’re self-conscious about your smile, rapid tooth movement has been created for our adult patients. Most cases complete in six months or less.
When your treatment is complete, you will have the smile you’ve always dreamed of as well as the confidence to show it off! We also want you to feel comfortable and confident throughout your entire orthodontic experience, so our practice is dedicated to making sure you receive the quality care you deserve.
How Rapid Orthodontic Treatment Works
Our office utilizes Invisalign®. This treatment has been in use for many years, and with patient compliance, delivers a beautiful smile rapidly.
Gone are the days when a metal band with a bracket was placed around each tooth. Invisaligners are clear plastic aligners that can be easily removed before meals and replaced after them. We recommend wearing these aligners 20 hours a day.
Duration of Treatment
Depending on several factors, including age, treatment method, and how minor or severe your case is, treatment time varies and can last between one and three years. A big factor to a successful treatment is you, the patient! The more involved and diligent you are, the quicker and more efficient your treatment will be. For children, receiving interceptive, or early treatment, can also help ensure a quicker treatment time later on in life.
Before beginning your orthodontic care, we will discuss all your options and provide an estimate for how long your full treatment may take. Please contact our practice to schedule an appointment and learn more about orthodontics and the treatments we provide.
