There have been great strides made in orthodontic technology over the past several years, and there are now many different options for children, teens, and adults to correct their teeth. Many people wonder what type of braces works the fastest. Since everyone’s teeth are slightly different, it’s hard to make an accurate determination of how fast these devices are going to work for you. However, you can make estimates to figure out which type of appliance is going to work the quickest. Ragan Orthodontics offers different types of braces in Dallas. Here are some of the different types.
Traditional Metal or Ceramic
Traditional braces are still the best choice for many people. Modern braces have been enhanced over the years to work more quickly than they did in previous decades. They have been slimmed down and made more efficient, so they add more pressure to the teeth and pull them into the correct position quickly. Our talented orthodontist in Dallas can also attach a Carriere Distalizer to the braces and add rubber brands. This is a modern alternative to headgear and is a good way to correct major misalignments quickly. The amount of time you will spend in braces is going to depend entirely on the state of your teeth; some people may only need them for six months, while others will have them for years.
Invisalign® and other clear orthodontic trays have become very popular in Dallas over the past several years, and they are another good option for quick orthodontic treatment. However, not everyone is a good candidate for Invisalign®. People who have severe misalignments may need more intensive treatment to correct it.
AcceleDent is a new orthodontic treatment that is designed to work very quickly. AcceleDent treatment uses pulses to gently move the bone into place, straightening the teeth. It can reduce treatment time by over 50 percent in many cases. You don’t need to keep AcceleDent in your mouth all day – instead, it’s an electronic device that you’ll use routinely to administer the pulses.
