Fastest Ways to Straighten your Teeth

Getting straight teeth might feel like it takes forever, especially when one cannot wait to get that perfect smile! In fact, traditional braces alone take on average 2 years to straighten one’s teeth. However, with modern advanced technology, your teeth can be straightened in just a few quick treatments at your orthodontist in Jacksonville, Florida.

But a word of caution – the requirements and results will differ from person to person due to factors like bone density, misalignment severity, and even the patient’s age. 

Your orthodontist will need to complete a thorough examination and then guide you to the most effective teeth straightening treatment option for your situation.

There are a few choices to consider if you’re in a hurry or have a tight deadline. Of course, every treatment comes with its benefits as well as drawbacks. 


Clear Aligners 

Clear aligners are removable orthodontic appliances used to straighten teeth and correct gaps between teeth, underbites or overbites. The aligners are nearly “invisible,” and they function pretty much as traditional braces. They’re discreet, easy to wear & maintain and comfortable. 

An orthodontist can treat complex cases that general dentists are unable to address. While the treatment can get done in a few cases in four months, it can take a year or more. The treatment time depends on how much teeth need to rotate or move. The more movements a smile needs, the longer it will take to straighten the teeth. 

Clear aligners can be removed and should be taken off while eating, drinking or brushing teeth. It is advised to clean the aligners after every meal and brush with cold water daily at least twice.

Wear aligners as prescribed to get through the treatment swiftly.


Limited Braces treatment

Like traditional braces, limited braces serve the same purpose but differ in the final goals. Unlike traditional braces, limited braces will focus on fixing only the bite for the front teeth,

The treatment timeline could range between 6 and 18 months. 


Choose what fits you!

Not all treatments will suit everyone. While some prefer the traditional tried and tested treatments with braces, others are open to trying the new options of aligners. However, getting your orthodontist’s advice is important before deciding on any treatment.
