Modern braces have been an orthodontic treatment option since the 1800s, so it is only natural that this is one of the first things people think of when they hear the words “orthodontic treatment.” Dental technology has come a long way over the last couple centuries, and while traditional braces still produce effective results, you may have other treatment options available. Invisalign® and Fastbraces® are two more recent developments that may benefit many people.
Invisalign® treatment involves using a series of clear aligners to slowly move the teeth into the desired position. The length of treatment and the number of aligners required depends on the individual. At Chapel Hill, Dr. Ty James and Dr. Brice McMurphy will assess your needs to determine the number of aligners that may be necessary. Each aligner is custom made to fit your teeth. There are many benefits to aligner treatment:
Fastbraces® is a more recent development that functions similar to traditional braces but with a slightly different design. Whereas traditional braces move the crown first and the root later, Fastbraces® move both at the same time. This treatment option also comes with many benefits:
The Choice Depends on You
Which treatment option is the best one? That depends entirely on the patient. Both Invisalign® and Fastbraces® are effective options, but you must be willing to follow our dentists’ instructions carefully. Some patients may still benefit from traditional braces as well.
