When your teeth line up the way they should, your smile looks and feels its very best. It is easier to fight bacteria buildup around straight teeth, and a properly-aligned jaw can open and close without the stress and strain that leads to TMJ (temporomandibular joint) issues. Patients of all ages can benefit from orthodontic treatment from Arkansas River Valley Dentistry, where we offer three options in clear and/or accelerated braces: Invisalign, ClearCorrect, and Fastbraces. Keep reading to learn more about each one, then contact us to schedule an appointment with your dentist in Clarksville.
We can help you achieve a straighter, more confident smile with Invisalign, the clear braces system for adults and teens. The treatment uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually reposition the teeth. Over a period of about one year, on average, the teeth are realigned according to each patient’s unique treatment plan. Invisalign results are highly predictable and long-lasting with the use of a clear retainer following treatment.
Invisalign trays are removable, meaning patients can continue to eat and drink what they please, then brush and floss their teeth just like normal to maintain the utmost in dental hygiene throughout orthodontic treatment. Smooth plastic trays are more comfortable than metal brackets and wires, and most importantly for you, they are practically invisible. While those closest to you may know you are undergoing orthodontic treatment, acquaintances and colleagues may be none the wiser. Invisalign allows you to smile confidently, even with your braces!
ClearCorrect is an option that is very similar to Invisalign. It uses custom-fitted, smooth plastic trays to place pressure on different areas of the bite throughout treatment. The trays are removable to allow you to continue to eat, drink, and clean your teeth with ease. One key difference between ClearCorrect and Invisalign is that ClearCorrect is headquartered and manufactured in Texas.
ClearCorrect can be used to treat the most common dental misalignments, including crowded or gapped teeth as well as overbite, underbite, and crossbite. Contact us to discuss the benefits of Invisalign or ClearCorrect.
For patients who wish for speedy results above all else in their orthodontic treatment, Fastbraces provides the solution. Traditional braces work by shifting the tooth’s crown and allowing the root to reposition in succession. By moving the tooth’s roots at the same time as the crown, however, the Fastbraces method can reduce the total treatment time for braces to just 120 days, on average. Patients who are dealing with minor orthodontic issues may be able to enjoy their results even faster. Fastbraces offers an accelerated option that provides wonderful, long-lasting results. Arkansas River Valley Dentistry is pleased to be an authorized provider of Fastbraces for the Arkansas River Valley!
