Comparing Fast Braces vs. Traditional Braces
Traditional braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment for kids and adults. Though effective at straightening teeth, traditional braces also have a number of drawbacks that can make them an unattractive option for some patients. With the development of accelerated braces (or “fast braces”), traditional braces now have a legitimate challenger that should be considered by all in search of orthodontic treatment. Below are the pros and cons of traditional braces and accelerated braces.
- Traditional Braces (Pros): As the oldest and most time-tested form orthodontics, traditional braces have the highest treatment success rate and are generally considered a safe bet. They are also offered by virtually all orthodontists and are the most affordable orthodontic option.
- Traditional Braces (Cons): Though effective, traditional braces often take a considerable amount of time to straighten teeth and fix bite issues (often 1 – 2 years, at minimum). Traditional braces are also highly visible, often uncomfortable, and come with a host of necessary appointments for adjustments.
- Accelerated Braces (Pros): Accelerated braces are a relatively new form of braces with the clear benefit of shorter treatment times. Systems like Acceledontics can fully straighten teeth and fix bite issues in 4 – 6 months. Accelerated braces also use self-ligating hardware which continuously adjusts with teeth, virtually eliminating the need for adjustment appointments.
- Accelerated Braces (Cons): As a newer type of orthodontic treatment, accelerated braces often come with slightly higher price tags than traditional braces. Some patients also report a mild “itching” sensation in their gums and teeth during treatment due to the speed at which teeth are being moved.
Invisalign Braces: Pros and Cons
In addition to traditional braces and accelerated braces, there are several other types of orthodontic treatment available for both kids and adults. One of the most popular other types are “invisible” braces such as Invisalign. These types of braces use clear trays instead of brackets and wires to straighten teeth. While attractive because they are less noticeable, these braces are far from invisible. They most closely resemble thin mouth guards. Additionally, invisible braces require trays to be changed nearly every month, meaning many visits to the orthodontist’s office and many teeth molds to sit through. Invisible braces are also no quicker at straightening teeth than traditional braces. Most treatments take anywhere from 1 – 3 years. Further, those with severe orthodontic issues may not qualify for invisible braces and will likely require regular braces.
Braces Behind The Teeth: Pros and Cons
Those looking for truly inconspicuous orthodontic treatment option may have heard of braces behind the teeth. Know as “lingual braces,” braces behind the teeth come with the clear advantage of being less noticeable. However, they also have several drawbacks. Firstly, there are few orthodontists that offer lingual braces — and those that do will tell you that that lingual braces typically take even longer to straighten teeth than traditional braces. Severe orthodontic issues also cannot always be fixed with lingual braces. Plus, many patients report marked difficulty speaking and eating while wearing braces behind their teeth.
Acceledontics: An Attractive Option for Your Teeth
