When seeking the fastest orthodontic treatment, you’ll be pleased to know that there are a variety of accelerated orthodontic systems that fit the bill. Treatments such as the Inman Aligner Manchester and 6 month Smiles Manchester are two of the most popular; but which is the fastest? Let’s take a closer look.
Before we get into the nitty-gritty of each treatment it’s worth considering why someone would choose short-term orthodontic treatment over a conventional long-term system. In essence the answer is aesthetics. For those who have relatively healthy teeth but feel that a crooked, flared, or gapped tooth or teeth is ruining their perfect smile, they might opt for fast brace treatments. As the name suggests accelerated orthodontic treatment is far quicker than longer-term treatments. However there’s a good reason for that. Speedy treatments can only deal with straightening the upper and lower teeth that are visible when you smile and not the whole mouth. What they can’t do is to facilitate underlying issues such as tooth root alignment, bite correction, and any other further dental issues. Provided that people understand this, then accelerated orthodontic treatments definitely have a place.
So getting back to the initial question – ‘Inman Aligner Manchester vs 6 Month smiles Manchester which is fastest?
Firstly let’s take 6 Month Smiles…
6 month Smiles is more of a conventional brace system that utilises tooth coloured brackets and thin wiring. This makes for quite a discreet treatment. As the name suggests treatment should take six months, but often this is the longest the treatment will take, and in most cases patients are looking at a four month turnaround.
On the contrary with the Inman Aligner, Manchester residents can expect to see results within 6 -18 weeks depending upon the severity of the issue. This is because the springs and bows of the Inman Aligner both push and pull the teeth back into position allowing for a wider range of movement at a faster speed.
So because the Inman Aligner appears to be the fastest orthodontic treatment, does this mean that it’s the best one for you?
In a word..No!
This is because what might suit one patient mightn’t suit another and it depends very much on your dental issues. Yes all speedy brace treatments can straighten teeth, however some will also correct additional problems too. This is why choosing the right orthodontic treatment isn’t always about the speed of the result, but more about the overall quality and health of their smile. In some people this might take longer to achieve than others.
