Everyone wants a beautiful smile. If you have a smile you are not proud of, social situations can be embarrassing and uncomfortable. Fortunately, advances in dental technology and orthodontic treatments provide many options for you to improve the quality of your smile. One such option for straightening misaligned teeth are SPEED braces.

With SPEED braces, you can get the smile you want with faster treatment times, better aesthetics, and the most comfort possible. By eliminating the need for elastics or bands, SPEED braces use an innovative spring clip to straighten teeth and apply a gentle, continuous force to align teeth into the proper position. With SPEED braces, you will need to visit your orthodontist about every two weeks, but as the name suggests, treatment usually only lasts between three and nine months.

Aesthetically, SPEED braces are less visible than other orthodontic options. The appliances are 1/3 smaller than traditional metal braces, with a sparkling jewel-like appearance. SPEED braces do not give you a “metal mouth” or “railroad track” look, making them especially appealing to adult patients.

Other benefits of the smaller size of SPEED braces are comfort and hygiene. The absence of elastics and the smaller design minimize irritation to the cheeks, gums and lips. The streamlined design also makes it easier to brush and floss and reduces the likelihood of food particles getting stuck in your braces.

With patient cooperation, the amount of time of orthodontic treatment can be drastically decreased utilizing SPEED braces. To determine if you are a candidate for treatment with SPEED braces, contact an orthodontist for an evaluation. With SPEED braces, you could be on your way to straighter, perfect teeth in no time!
