Don’t Have Time for Braces?

Posted in Braces

Think you’re too busy for braces?

In some orthodontic practices there are more adult patients than teenagers, because of how popular braces are with the busy professional crowd.

Yes, it does take time to straighten teeth. But adult braces options focus on getting results in an aesthetically pleasing manner, and even a short amount of time.

Fast Braces Options for Adults

Do you want a straighter, more comfortable smile in less than two years?

Many orthodontic practices provide accelerated orthodontic methods.

AcceleDent, for example, is a hands-free device you wear for 20 minutes a day to encourage faster tooth movement. You’d use AcceleDent right over braces.

Another option is Six Month Smiles. This system focuses on straightening just the teeth that you want straightened for cosmetic purposes. Treating fewer teeth goes faster than straightening all of your teeth.

Not Enough Time in the Day

Perhaps you don’t want braces because they take too much time to clean every day.

If you were to wear any kind of fixed orthodontia, then it would require special daily flossing and brushing.

But you can cut out all that time by going with a removable orthodontic option. Invisalign is a good example of a removable retainer. It should stay in your mouth for most of the day to have full impact, but it comes out for simple brushing and flossing.

To successfully straighten your teeth in as little time as possible, you will need to have regular orthodontic visits. But these average out to only once every one or two months, or so.

If you’re will to invest just a little bit of time, braces will reward you with a lifetime of benefits! Ask your local orthodontist for more adult braces ideas.
