If you are looking to straighten your teeth, there are a variety of ways you can approach the issue. Which option you choose depends on all the typical factors, such as cost, timetable and your dental health. Dr. Hossein Javid has years of experience helping patients decide what their best option is when it comes to orthodontics in El Segundo, CA. Options like Fastbraces® and Invisalign® provide excellent alternatives to traditional braces, though each offers its own benefits that you should be aware of.
The Speedy Choice
Many patients enjoy expedited straightening with Fastbraces® as long as the damage being corrected is not too severe. Fastbraces® technology uses small brackets that are able to target and straighten the roots of crooked teeth. The design of these small braces creates increased flexibility in the wire and allows some patients to have their teeth corrected in as little as three months.
The Discrete Choice
While Fastbraces® are smaller than traditional brackets, the braces are still somewhat visible. The clear plastic used in Invisalign® allows Dr. Javid’s patients to handle their treatment privately and with confidence. This technology uses customized molds that gradually adjust the teeth. Invisalign® aligners do not bond to your teeth like brackets do, so patients are able to remove the trays while eating and brushing their teeth.
The Best Option for You
Each patient is different, and your choice in orthodontic procedure will depend on your doctor’s assessment. However, Invisalign® is typically the preferred choice for people with the following circumstances:
There are plenty of other factors, but these are some of the bigger concerns for new patients to consider.
