Clear View Braces – Are They Better Than Invisalign?

Fast Orthodontic Treatment – How It Differs From Standard Braces

You’re probably already aware that as a general rule of thumb, orthodontic braces Manchester take   up to two years to work their magic. At the end of the time the wearer should have perfectly straight teeth that they can be proud of. However what you mightn’t be aware of is the growing number of fast orthodontic treatments.

As the name suggests fast orthodontic treatment includes a variety of clear braces Manchester, which are designed to straighten teeth in a fraction of the time, sometimes in as little as a few weeks. Brands such as C-Fast, Secret Smile, and Six Month Smiles all do exactly that; but how do they work so fast? Let’s take a closer look…

Firstly all orthodontic treatments work on the same principle in that they use gentle applied force to gradually move teeth back into their correct position. So the question is, how come they can achieve this in as little as a few weeks while other treatments take years to complete? The answer lies in how they work…

With conventional long-term braces, Manchester patients are being helped using systems that straighten the entire mouth. That’s both the top and bottom sets of teeth. During this time, not only will all teeth be straightened and aligned, but also underlying issues such as tooth root alignment and bite will also be addressed. In essence, long-term braces have the ability to parallel shift the whole tooth, including the tooth root, giving you a healthier, straighter smile over the entire mouth.

Now we know how long-term brace systems such as Invisalign and lingual braces work, let’s take a closer look at accelerated or fast orthodontic treatment.

For most people, it’s understandable that they aren’t really concerned with the underlying factors that make up the function of the teeth and instead are more concerned with the aesthetics or form. In other words, they’d like a great looking smile, but they don’t necessarily want to wait up to two years to achieve it. For this reason they might opt for fast orthodontic systems using clear braces Manchester.

In principle they work exactly the same way in that gentle force is continually applied to straighten teeth, however the difference is that rather than dealing with the entire mouth, accelerated brace systems concentrate solely on the top and bottom six teeth that can be seen when you smile. A a result they can make front teeth look better in a short space of time, but can’t deal with more complex orthodontic issues such as how the upper and lower teeth come together.

So who are they for?

An accelerated or fast orthodontic treatment is best for patients with a good bite at the back of the mouth but mild problems such as slightly crooked or crowded teeth at the front. So for someone who has an important upcoming event such as a wedding, job interview, or date, and wants to look their best, this type of treatment offers the ideal solution.

As you can see, there is a need for fast orthodontic treatment although it’s worth pointing out that it isn’t suitable in every case. For this reason other forms of braces Manchester will be a better option for those with more severe bite problems.
