If you’re searching for accelerated orthodontic treatments and need 6 month smiles, Manchester patients will probably have discovered that they have a variety of options to choose from. You may for instance have come across a series of Inman Aligner before and after pictures found on any number of dental websites which may sway your views slightly. Alternatively if you’re erring towards longer treatment then you may have read an informative lingual braces blog outlining the advantages that they bring. Whatever the reason and whatever the viewpoint, if you’re looking to spend the next six months or more wearing braces to achieve a great looking smile, what should you be looking out for? Let’s take a closer look.
In essence anyone looking to achieve a better smile in 6 months or less will ultimately be considering fast or accelerated orthodontics treatment. These treatments work in exactly the same way as longer-term orthodontics in that they use sustained gentle force to coax the teeth back into alignment. The main difference, however, is that they usually only deal with the upper and lower 6 teeth that are visible when you smile. For this reason, anyone looking for a more holistic treatment that deals with bite issues as well as tooth root straightening will find that perfect teeth in 6 months or less isn’t really an option. On the contrary, for those people wanting to concentrate solely on how their smile looks rather than how it functions, then obtaining 6 month smiles in Manchester is highly achievable.
So what types of accelerated treatments are available?
Firstly there are a variety of clear fixed brace systems which although permanently attached to the teeth for the duration of the treatment remain discreet. Typically these are bracket and wiring style orthodontics using clear ceramics and tooth coloured wires. These include C Fast, Secret Smiles and 6 month smiles.
Alternatively, you have the ‘aligner style’ removable braces such as the Inman Aligner. Before and after pictures are often pretty impressive when you look on any dental website that offers them and not without good reason. In most cases treatment is achieved within 4 months. Because they’re fully and easily removable they have certain advantages over their fixed compatriots in that it makes eating and cleaning of the teeth easier. That said, in order for the aligner to achieve the perfect results fast, they still need to remain in the mouth for around 20 hours every day. Anything less will lengthen or compromise the treatment, so full compliance is a must.
What about Lingual Braces?
You may have already done some research and been reading the odd lingual braces blog. However in doing so what you might have discovered is that lingual braces aren’t really an accelerated or fast orthodontic treatment as such. However because of the fact that they’re secured to the back of the teeth and not the front, they often get results quicker. In some cases as little as 9 months, as opposed to 1-2 years for conventional braces. In addition, because they’re secured to the back of the teeth lingual braces are incredibly discreet, so you may want to consider them for this reason.
