There are many situations why you might want to opt for the fastest orthodontic treatment. It could be that you have an upcoming event and want to look your best; or alternatively, you just can’t wait that long using conventional braces to achieve your dream smile. Either way, two of the speedier treatments are the Inman Aligner Manchester and 6 Month Smiles Manchester. Certainly with the latter, the name would suggest a speedy or accelerated treatment; but just how fast are they?
Before we go into the finer details of each treatment it’s worth pointing out that accelerated or fast orthodontic treatments are quick for a reason….
While speedy braces take a fraction of the time to straighten teeth, they have their limits. They can’t for instance straighten the tooth root or correct more complex bite problems. Instead they work by concentrating their actions on the front 6 upper and lower teeth. In other words accelerated treatments are ideal for those wanting a quick-fix solution to gapped or crooked front teeth which are visible when you smile. However anything more than this and long-term braces are usually the answer.
All that said, fast braces are on the rise, so which is the fastest orthodontic treatment?
6 Month Smiles
For those looking for quick smile treatment 6 month smiles would suggest that it takes around 6 months for the brace system to work. In some cases this is true but in many cases 6 months is usually the maximum time it takes. Generally speaking the average treatment time for 6 Month Smiles Manchester is around 5 months. That’s just 20 weeks! 6 month smiles are a traditional bracket and wire brace system. The brackets and wiring are permanently fixed for the duration of your treatment and work together to move teeth back into the desired position. This form of treatment works best for patients with mild alignment problems at the front of the mouth coupled with a great bite at the back.
The other candidate for fastest orthodontic treatment is the Inman Aligner. Manchester dentists will often recommend the Inman Aligner because unlike other brace treatments it’s easily and fully removable. In fact it’s only designed to be worn for around 20 hours a day. The fact that you’re supposed to remove it when eating and drinking prevents food particles from becoming trapped. Thus making the Inman Aligner one of the best options for retaining good oral health.
Also unlike 6 Month Smiles treatment it doesn’t operate under the conventional system of brackets and wiring. Instead the aligner uses a series of springs that power two aligner bows. (One at the front of the teeth and one at the back). As one pushes the other pulls, creating a gentle squeeze-effect on the teeth. Treatment time on average takes 6-18 weeks with the average being around 12 weeks or 3 months in length.
As with 6 Month Smiles it won’t be for everyone and successful treatment depends upon the severity of the condition. However assuming that all is equal, it’s safe to say that the fastest orthodontic treatment is most definitely the Inman Aligner with 6 Month Smiles coming a close second.
