When it comes to orthodontic options in Frisco, the choices may feel a little overwhelming at first. It this day and age, with the advancement in technology and a higher understanding of orthodontic care, there are many options available to give you straight teeth. Today we are going to discuss the differences between two of the more popular options available. Fastbraces vs. ClearCorrect.
ClearCorrect Clear Aligners
ClearCorrect is a great option for adults and those who want to straighten their teeth without the unsightly wires and brackets that comes with the territory. What makes ClearCorrect special is it is made of a virtually invisible clear plastic aligner. These aligners are comfortable and can be taken out of your mouth while you eat and brush. That means there are no food restriction and your lifestyle can stay exactly the same.
Pros of ClearCorrect
- The aligners can be removed
- They are virtually invisible
- They are comfortable and won’t irritate your gums or cheeks
- No food restrictions
- Quick orthodontic appointments
Fastbraces Accelerated Braces
Fastbraces biggest feature is how quickly they straighten your teeth, with a typical treatment time of 6 – 9 months! That means you could have straight teeth in time for your next routine cleaning. Fastbraces is able to achieve such quick results because it starts to move both the root and teeth immediately (conventional orthodontics moves your roots first, then your teeth). The end result will be a beautiful smile in about half of a year.
Pros of Fastbraces
- Very fast treatment times
- Can treat a wide variety of cases
- More affordable
- Treats both adults and teens
- Less sensitivity than conventional braces
In the end, both options do an excellent job of straightening teeth. What it really comes down to are the needs of the patient. If you want to keep your orthodontic work on the down low and don’t have a very crooked set of teeth, then ClearCorrect would probably suit you better. If you would rather get the orthodontic treatment over with as soon as possible and don’t care as much about the brackets on your teeth, then Fastbraces is probably right for you.
