What are Your Alternatives? Straightening Treatments Besides Invisalign and Metal Braces

Person Using InvisalignStraightened teeth can boost a person’s confidence. You can have such confidence-boosting straightened teeth using different procedures. You probably already know about traditional metal braces as well as Invisalign, the famous removable, clear teeth aligners. You may think that the previous two are the only straightening options available, but you have some other options.

Quick Smiles

One of your options is called Six Month Smiles. Six Month Smiles act much like fixed braces, yet it only focuses on your 6 to 8 front teeth, the ones that show when you smile. Such limited focus allows the procedure to achieve results within 6 to 9 months. With the quick results and limited focus, you pay less for Six Month Smiles than for longer brace treatments.

Visualised Results

Last year,a digital treatment planning software was released for Six Month Smiles. With the new technology, you can see the final result of the Six Month Smile procedure without undergoing treatment. The visualised results can help you understand what needs to be done and what will happen to achieve such results. You can also see if you will be happy with the results of the procedure.

Removable Like Invisalign

Now, besides Six Month Smiles, when you want removable aligners instead of fixed braces, you can choose Inman Aligners. Inman aligners act as an alternative to Invisalign. Much like Six Month Smiles, Inman aligners focus only on the upper and bottom front teeth given the aligners limited movement capacity. Inman aligners will not work well for complex misalignment sadly.

Hidden from Sight

When you want to have the effective process of fixed braces but want the aesthetic appeal of ‘invisible’ aligner, you can choose lingual braces. Dentists from clinics like Saving Faces install these fixed braces behind your teeth, hiding it from sight. Lingual braces have higher costs than standard metal braces, however.

With the summaries above, you can make a better decision as to what procedure you will get to straighten your teeth. You can get Inman aligners, lingual braces, and a six-month smile in Liverpool.
