Should I choose Invisalign or Six Month Braces?

If you are considering cosmetic dentistry, you are probably wondering about the best way to improve your smile. Perhaps you are even considering adult orthodontics to improve your misaligned teeth. Most adults who come to us and want orthodontics feel hesitant about traditional ortho because of the brackets and wires involved. If you are a professional or if you have an active social life, you probably don’t feel like traditional orthodontics is a realistic option for you.

However, at East Cooper Smiles, Dr. Jason Annan offers two orthodontic solutions for our adult patients looking to improve the aesthetics of their smiles. 

InvisalignInvisalign utilizes clear plastic trays to gradually move your teeth over time. How long your treatment will take depends upon the severity of your misalignment. Invisalign is a great option for people who want flexibility because the clear aligner trays are removable for eating and oral hygiene. 

Six Month BracesSix Month Braces provides options for patients looking to improve the teeth that are visible when you smile. This innovative system moves teeth quickly and treatment time only averages about six months. Because of the reduced treatment time, Six Month Braces are also incredibly affordable.

With an evaluation, we can help you determine the treatment that can best help you to achieve your aesthetic goals. Dr. Annan will explain the pros and cons of each treatment so that you can feel confident in your decision to move forward with cosmetic orthodontics.
