Invisalign and Powerprox Six Month Braces
Some smile flaws are not very noticeable, such as a small chip in a tooth. Unfortunately, there is no hiding crooked, crowded, or overlapping teeth. But as an adult, you may not be happy with the idea of wearing braces to fix them.
Modern dentistry has changed a lot of things for the better, and one of them is that now we can offer options for adults to straighten their teeth quickly and conveniently. At Ely, Dubos & Stewart, we’re pleased to offer two ways to straighten crooked teeth in Circleville, OH—Invisalign invisible braces, and Powerprox Six Month Braces.
Why Our Patients Choose Invisalign Clear Braces
With Invisalign, you can get the straight smile you want without brackets and wires. Instead, Invisalign’s clear aligners slip easily over your teeth to gradually move them into their ideal position.
Take a look at the benefits of straightening your teeth with Invisalign:
- Your crystal-clear aligners are unnoticeable and won’t affect the look of your smile.
- Invisalign’s smooth plastic material won’t irritate the inside of your mouth as metal braces do
- You can easily remove Invisalign for meals and to brush and floss
If you want to learn more about the benefits of Invisalign and why the treatment is so popular with our Circleville, OH patients, call us to arrange a dental appointment.
How Invisalign Treatment Works
Our Invisalign dentists start by taking digital x-rays and images of your teeth. They’ll use specialized software that helps them plan each stage of your treatment.
An Invisalign lab customizes several sets of clear aligners just for you, and we’ll explain how to use them. Wear each set for at least 22 hours a day for two to three weeks, then switch to the next set in the series. You will visit us every four to six weeks to receive your next sets of aligners, and you'll repeat this process until you use all your aligners, and treatment is complete.
Average treatment times with Invisalign are 12 to 18 months, but you’ll achieve the fastest results if you commit to wearing your aligners all the time and remove them only for meals and oral hygiene.
Powerprox Six Month Braces
Is there really a way to straighten your teeth in just six months?
You may have heard of Six Month Smiles, and Powerprox Six Month Braces works in a similar way. Powerprox uses many of the same materials and technology that has been used for decades to straighten teeth. But this modern orthodontic treatment combines these materials in new ways, which reduces the time it takes for you to achieve a straighter smile.
With Powerprox, you will have brackets and wires on your teeth, but because of the way the system moves your teeth, they work much faster than traditional braces. Treatment times for Powerprox range between four and nine months, with six being the average.
