Worried About How Long Braces Take? Try Short-Term Orthodontic Treatment

Many adults are hesitant to get braces. That’s partly because people associate braces with teenagers. Looking young is a good thing, but not looking immature. It’s also in part due to a concern over how much time it will take. Two to three years for braces can sound intimidating. That’s why we offer a short-term orthodontics treatment Alma, MI dental office: Red, White and Blue aligners.

How Long Do Traditional Braces Usually Take?

Moving your teeth can take time. It has to be done slowly and surely to avoid complications, pain, or failure. For traditional braces, that means a treatment time of two to three years in most cases. If that much time is too long for you, our Red, White and Blue aligners can help. These clear plastic trays are worn over your teeth like mouthguards, but you wear them almost all the time. Each tray is shaped for your mouth specifically and can move your teeth in as little as 6-12 weeks.

How Can Red, White And Blue Aligners Do It Faster?

This system works much faster than braces by focusing on the teeth that matter in your smile. For example, why bother moving your back molars if no one is going to see them? Red, White and Blue aligners work much more quickly by focusing only on the front teeth. If your goal is to get a winning smile, this can certainly do the trick. And while traditional braces can spend time shifting the shape of your bite (how your teeth come together), this system does not. Less work on other stuff means more time spent aligning your teeth.

Can These Aligners Do The Exact Same Job As Braces?

Red, White and Blue aligners are not for everybody, which is why we still offer traditional orthodontic treatments like metal braces. If you have a problem with malocclusion (your teeth do not come together properly when you bite down), or if you have significant problems such as teeth that are extremely out of place, you are probably better served with traditional braces. However, if you need your front teeth realigned, then Red, White and Blue aligners can do a great job.

Does Red, White And Blue Compare With Invisalign?

Both Red, White and Blue and Invisalign use a series of clear plastic aligners to move your teeth, so they will do basically the same job. However, Red, White and Blue is generally much more affordable than Invisalign. Plus, they are made right here in the United States. If they do as good of a job but cost less, why wouldn’t you want Red, White and Blue?
