What are accelerated braces?
Accelerated braces provide the same results achievable with traditional braces and orthodontic treatments, just in a shorter time frame. There are a variety of factors that affect tooth movement, including environmental, genetic, and type of malocclusion. With accelerated braces, metal, ceramic, or lingual braces are combined with natural methods to accelerate the natural process of straightening your teeth.
How are accelerated braces different?
Compared to traditional braces or other orthodontic treatments, accelerated braces are an emerging form of braces with the benefit of shorter treatment times. Accelerated braces allow you to choose from any type of braces, like metal or ceramic. Since your teeth will shift quickly, you may require more frequent adjustments. The same care like avoiding chewy, hard, crunchy foods should be followed when opting for accelerated braces in Laredo.
How long will braces be on for?
The total length of orthodontic treatment will depend upon your circumstances. While the average time for braces is between 1 to 3 years, the severity of your misalignment may require longer treatment. The main advantage of accelerated braces is that treatment time can be reduced and end up on the side of shorter treatment time, like in as little as 3 to 8 months!
