Have you always wanted straighter teeth but did not want to spend two-plus years in traditional braces? We may have a solution for you! At our Midtown and Buckhead Smile Centers, we offer Invisalign® Clear Orthodontics and Fastbraces®, a patented technology that can help most patients have straighter teeth in a year or less.
Invisalign® Clear Orthodontics
Popular with both adults and teens, the Invisalign process uses a sequence of removable plastic aligners which gradually straighten teeth. The aligners are worn 24 hours a day, but can easily be removed for eating and cleaning.
- Your doctor will evaluate your bite and smile using Invisalign® patented technology and computer 3D simulation to plan your case.
- We then finalize the treatment plan and the desired results with you before we start.
- The Invisalign lab fabricates your aligners to specification, and you are on your way to a straighter smile!
Because Invisalign orthodontic appliances are clear, they are barely noticeable when you smile. This makes Invisalign an excellent choice for busy adults or teens involved in sports activities in which metal braces present challenges. Visit the Invisalign® web site to learn more.
Because there are different types of teeth crowding, some patients do require orthodontic brackets and wires to achieve the desired movement of teeth. Fastbraces® technology utilizes special components and applies a different mechanical process than traditional wires and brackets.
How Fastbraces® work:
Regular metal braces move the crown of the tooth in the first year, and the root of the tooth in the second year. Fastbraces® technique is designed to move the crown and the root of the tooth at the same time, from the start of treatment. Patients with Fastbraces® see results in about a year, sometimes less.
Fastbraces® is also available with clear ceramic brackets to help conceal the orthodontic appliance for a more cosmetic appearance.
