Orthodontics at Adelaide Dental Spa
Traditional and fast braces are both great options for people considering teeth straightening. Depending on your smile and aesthetic goals, most of our braces patients complete their treatment anywhere between 6-12 months.
What are Fast Braces?
Accelerated orthodontics are braces designed for cosmetic teeth straightening. If you have a relatively aligned bite where your back teeth and jaws close together properly, we can focus the case on straightening the teeth at the front of your smile, which people see more often.
Fast braces aren’t suitable for everyone. Ideally, they’re best for mild misalignment like small gaps or limited crowding at the front of your mouth. If there’s more severe alignment issues, a specialist may need to intervene.
Advantages of Braces Over Aligners
Compared to Invisalign®, traditional braces are suitable for correcting more difficult issues, such as moderate crowding, gaps or crossbites. Since clear aligners are made of plastic, they only use minimal force compared to conventional bracket and wire systems.
Simply put, braces can move your teeth faster than removable clear aligners for some cases.
