If you have severely misaligned teeth, braces are the best way to help you straighten them. However, because of the time commitment that comes with braces, not everyone is ready to receive them. For a long time, traditional braces were the only choice for those with crooked and misaligned teeth. Thanks to advances in medical technology, you now have options when it comes to straightening your smile. Our orthodontist may choose a type of self-ligating braces that can make the corrections quicker and more effectively than regular braces. Carriere® braces are an excellent choice if you are interested in shortening your orthodontic treatment.
How Can Carriere® Braces Help Me?
Misaligned teeth can cause a number of issues. The most obvious one is the negative impact on the appearance. For this reason, many individuals become self-conscious to the point that they are reluctant to smile. When the condition reaches this point, a person’s social life can be negatively impacted.
Teeth that are crooked can also make it more difficult to bite and chew properly. This can have an indirect but detrimental effect on your overall health. In addition, the teeth can be more difficult to keep clean when they are in this state, which can lead to even more problems down the road.
Carriere® braces come with many benefits. For one, these braces are self-ligating, which means they move naturally with the teeth as they straighten them. Because they don’t require the same kind of tightening and monitoring as traditional braces, these braces will let you spend less time in the office and with the braces on. In fact, treatment time with this innovative system is typically reduced by about 4 months. Fewer orthodontic visits and less maintenance give you more free time.
Many patients also prefer these braces because they are much more comfortable than traditional braces. Because they allow your teeth to move more naturally, they put far less pressure on your jaw. As an added benefit, you will also experience much less, if any, irritation to your lips and gums. This means a more convenient, more comfortable orthodontic treatment for you.
We also offer the Carriere® Distalizer to create a corrected bite in a way that does not require the use of a headgear. It works without the need to remove any permanent teeth that have come through crooked.
