Some people never take the step towards finding out about having straighter teeth as they are worried about how long orthodontic treatment takes. Like a fine wine, some things are worth waiting for, and although I would love to magically straighten teeth (like Hermione!), there is no shortcut when it comes to braces. It takes time to do it right, and get the best possible result that will last. Easy fixes or non-fixed brace solutions seem attractive, but buyer beware! No matter what you’re told they do not get the same result as a fixed brace would. If it was that easy don’t you think all orthodontists would do them instead of the longer fixed brace solutions?
One solution we have recently started using is the AcceleDent device. This clever piece of equipment helps treatment go faster by gently vibrating the teeth. This maximises the efficiency of the braces reducing treatment time by at least 30%.
Another concern that might stop people going ahead is the inconvenience of the appointments. It is true that there is a commitment to coming for adjustments, but time really does seem to fly by when patients are in treatment. To make it easier for our professional clients, we offer early evening and Saturday appointments and individuals are also able to prebook their favourite time slots in advance, so they get the day and time that is best for them.
So if these two things have put you off before, why not come along for an assessment and see how we can make your treatment as easy and fast as possible.
