If you’ve wanted to straighten your crooked teeth for years, but thought it was too late since you missed out on braces as a child, Dr. Hoop is happy to say that you still have options! He offers a multitude of orthodontic solutions that are perfect for adults, including image-friendly Invisalign. The beautifully aligned smile you’ve always wanted is much closer than you might think, and you can start getting it by contacting Total Dental Solutions today to schedule a consultation to discuss orthodontics in Fort Myers, FL.
Metal brackets and wires are the tried and true standard in orthodontic treatment, particularly if your bite alignment requires longer, stronger repositioning. We also offer braces that use wires made of thermal nickel-titanium, which are gentler but just as effective.
Traditionally, braces move the teeth in two distinct phases. First, the crown, or visible part of the tooth, is shifted, and this is followed by the root below the gum line. This usually takes years from start to finish. However, FastBraces are designed to complete these two processes at once, helping patients achieve lasting, beautiful results in about half the time compared to regular orthodontics. Issues ranging from crowded teeth to noticeable gaps to overbites and more can often be addressed in as little as a year with FastBraces.
Six Month Smiles is ideal for patients who just need to make a few minor adjustments to the teeth that show most prominently when they smile. With this treatment, brackets and wires are only applied to the front six teeth, or Social Six, that make up the smile. Because fewer teeth are involved compared to regular braces, this enables them to shift much faster without the use of additional force. Just like the name says, dramatic, beautiful results can often be achieved in just six months!
Instead of metal brackets and wires, you can choose Invisalign to get the smile you want. Using a series of clear, removable aligners, you could see results in 12 – 18 months, all without the sacrifices to your lifestyle and appearance standard braces require.
