You’re finally ready to straighten your crooked teeth, but you don’t want to wear conspicuous traditional braces for two or three years to get the results you’re looking for. All those frequent adjustment appointments simply won’t fit into your schedule. Is there another solution that can meet your needs and help you achieve your smile goals? Well, in fact, there are two! With Invisalign or ClearCorrect, your orthodontist in White Settlement can give you the best of both worlds: fast treatment that is subtle and doesn’t disrupt your lifestyle. In this post, learn more about these two options, particularly the time commitment that it will entail both inside and outside the dental office.
As a revolutionary way to straighten your teeth, Invisalign in White Settlement uses customized clear alignment trays that progressively guide your teeth into their ideal position. These trays are removeable, so you are free to eat whatever you want. You just have to brush and floss your teeth before putting the aligners back in your mouth.
The clear aligners constantly apply a gentle force on your teeth, yet Invisalign treatment can be completed in about half the time for traditional braces. Although each set needs to be replaced about every two weeks, you don’t have to see your orthodontist for each transition. In fact, with Invisalign, you would need to visit them about every six to eight weeks just to ensure that treatment is going according to plan.
Just as subtle as Invisalign, ClearCorrect is a great alternative to traditional braces. For mild to moderate misalignment, this solution is designed to blend in for a more appealing appearance and to work much faster than metal braces. These clear aligners are mostly created in the US, so this treatment can be more affordable than Invisalign.
This treatment can be completed in the same timeline as with Invisalign—within 12 to 18 months. Similar to Invisalign, you need to visit your orthodontist about every six or eight weeks. Most of the time, these visits are purely meant to make sure that you’re on track. If necessary, they can make changes to your treatment plan.
Choosing the Right Treatment for You
With two great options, how can you determine which one will best meet your needs? It’s important to partner with an experienced orthodontist. Not only can they examine your teeth and provide professional advice, leading you to the choice that will give you the results you want in a short period of time, but they can also check on your progress intermittently throughout treatment, making adjustments to your treatment as necessary. With these options, you can have the freedom to live your lifestyle while dramatically improving your smile. So what are you waiting for? Contact your orthodontist today to get on the path toward a straighter smile!
