Why Choose Malecki Family Dental for Orthodontics?
- Renowned Invisalign System Available
- Advanced Solutions Like Fastbraces Offered
- Target Specific Teeth with Six Month Smiles
The clear aligner system that Invisalign provides is one of the most popular and well-known today thanks to its effectiveness at resolving misaligned, rotated, and crooked teeth as well as uneven bites (or malocclusions.) We plan your treatment from start-to-finish during your consultation, so you can see exactly what your smile realignment looks like from the day you start to the day you finish. Because the aligners are transparent and removable, you can expect many conveniences you won’t find with traditional braces.
Similar to traditional braces, Fastbraces are made up of brackets and an archwire that work to shift teeth slowly over time. The main difference is they are capable of shifting teeth faster than traditional braces with the help of subsonic and phototherapy sessions. This stimulates the body’s osteoclasts and osteoblasts, two types of cells in the body responsible for removal and deposition of bone. Essentially, Fastbraces’ unique approach treatment allows patients to straighten teeth in roughly half the time.
Six Month Smiles
If you want to solely focus on the teeth visible in your smile, then Six Month Smiles might be for you. This treatment utilizes tooth-colored brackets and other components in order to make orthodontic treatment more esthetic pleasing. Additionally, it allows you to straighten teeth in just six months because it does not focus on the molars or other back teeth to complete treatment. Since traditional braces can take as many as 18 to 36 months to complete, this option allows for a more tailored orthodontic experience.
