Orthodontic treatment time varies depending on your individual case, but on average, most patients need to wear their braces or aligners for between 12 and 24 months.
However, there are instances when shorter treatment times may be suitable. If you have a minor orthodontic case that only affects the front six teeth, then you could be eligible for one of the 'liter' versions of orthodontic treatment.
Some of these shorter treatment options that we offer here at Edge Orthodontics are outlined below:
Types of Invisalign
Invisalign is an effective method of treatment for both major and minor orthodontic cases. If you have a problem with one of your front six teeth, you could be a suitable candidate for one of Invisalign's shorter treatment options. These include:
Invisalign i7: This method of Invisalign treatment could enable you to see results in as little as three months.
Invisalign Lite: For cases that need a bit more work, but aren't major cases, Invisalign Lite can bring about results in six months.
Fast treatment options
Another fast treatment option is AcceleDent. This hands-free device, which you place in your mouth for just 20 minutes a day, uses small microvibrations to encourage the movement of your teeth. AcceleDent can be used in conjunction with different types of orthodontic appliances, from traditional braces to Invisalign, and can cut treatment time in half.
