Your teeth are crooked, but you dread the thought of spending years wearing braces as a way to straighten them. What if there was a way to wear braces in less than half of the time required by the traditional version, yet still achieve a perfect smile? Well, we have good news: there is. At Parkwood Dental in Bradenton, FL, we offer Braces, the revolutionary version of braces that uses an advanced design that will straighten your teeth in as little as 120 days.
What Are the Advantages of Braces?
The main advantage of these revolutionary braces is that they straighten your teeth quickly. Yet they also offer many other advantages when compared to their traditional braces counterparts.
They Require a Shorter Treatment Time
Depending on how crooked your teeth are, when you choose traditional braces you may be committing to as long as three to five years in those braces. However, the revolutionary and unique design of these braces allows them to effectively straighten and reposition teeth in just 120 days. That’s good news if you want to straighten your teeth, and it’s news that will cause envy among all of your friends who may have spent years suffering for their now perfect teeth.
Just because you may have never heard of these braces before doesn’t mean that they are brand new. Braces were designed by the renowned orthodontist, Dr. Anthony Viazias. They have been used for over 20 years and have successfully brought thousands of people more confidence by giving them the straight, beautiful teeth they’ve always dreamed about.
There Is Less Discomfort
Beauty is pain, but sometimes that pain makes you regret your decision, especially when it comes to getting beautiful teeth. Thanks to Braces, this is one decision you will not regret. Since the total treatment time involved with these braces is only 120 days, there is significantly less discomfort and sensitivity involved than with traditional braces Lakewood.
There Is a Decreased Risk of Tooth Root Shortening
The technology used to create these braces is what allows them to move the roots of the teeth quickly and easily. They do so with far less force than traditional braces, which helps decrease the chances of tooth root shortening.
What Is Tooth Root Shortening?
Tooth root shortening is just as it sounds. It is the shortening of the root of the tooth as a result of orthodontic-related tooth movement. For some patients, it’s barely noticeable even on an x-ray, while for others, it can cause more issues. When you choose Braces, you decrease the chances of this happening because of the way that the technology behind these braces helps them move the teeth less forcefully than traditional braces do.
There Is Less Friction
Anything that you put on your teeth, whether it’s a dental whitening strip or a retainer, creates friction. This is especially true when it comes to braces because of the raised bracket system and wires that line the teeth during treatment. When compared to traditional braces, Braces have been proven to create the least amount of friction.
How Are These Braces Different?
You may be wondering how these braces can transform the teeth so effectively, so quickly. You’ve heard the saying, “If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.” However, these braces prove that statement wrong; at least in this case. The reason that they can work so quickly is mainly due to their patented design. The design that they’re equipped with is shaped like a triangle, which creates more space for the larger, square-shaped, highly flexible wire.
Typical braces work according to a two-step process where the root and crown are moved separately. This larger, flexible wire combined with the triangular brackets helps move the root and the crown at the same time instead of one after the other, which results in a far shorter treatment time.
Are There Clear Options Available?
Many people want their braces to be as inconspicuous as possible. That often leads patients to choose clear options over metal brackets. While this is an option, note that choosing clear braces will increase the total cost and total time of your treatment plan. If you’d rather wear the braces longer, yet have them be less visible, you can choose clear braces. If you’d rather wear them as short of a time as possible, you can choose the standard version of Braces.
Am I a Candidate?
The advantage of these braces is that work for nearly everyone, from young patients to older ones. Approximately 80% of patients in need of braces are candidates for Braces. They can be used to quickly and effectively straighten the teeth of children, teenagers, and adults. An initial consultation will determine if these braces are right for you. There are some cases in which this particular form of braces will not be effective. Such conditions include:
- TMJ-related pain
- Multidisciplinary cases
- Extreme underbites
- Impacted teeth
