It can be intimidating to think about getting braces as an adult. No one wants to have people gawking at their mouth for 2-3 long years. But, by the same token, no one deserves to be embarrassed on a daily basis by their crooked, crowded, smiles. If you can relate to all that, we have some good news for you: Dr. Perrigo is an expert at delivering great new smiles through short-term orthodontic treatments.

In our Hoover, Alabama dentist’s office we offer two great options for transforming your smile in a faster, more subtle fashion.

Keep reading to hear all about Fastbraces and Invisalign, and then be sure to follow up with our team to schedule your consultation. One way or another, we’ll take your smile where it needs to go!

Fastbraces Provide Rapid Results

Fastbraces are different than the old-school braces you would have observed on others back in the day. Instead of utilizing square brackets with round wires, this system uses triangular brackets with square wires.

Does that really matter? Yes! In fact, this slight variation makes a big improvement. We can now accomplish so much more in far less time. You see, Fastbraces exert enough leverage to move your roots and crowns at the same time.

That means that with the Fastbraces system, your orthodontic treatment can most likely be completed in a matter of weeks rather than 2-3 long years.

Plus, since they make use of tooth-colored wires, none of your friends or coworkers will have to know about your improvement project.

So, if you are after a better-looking smile and don’t want to wait for it, these might be just what you need! We’ll figure that out for sure when you come in for your consultation with Dr. Perrigo.

Invisalign For Smile Design

Like we said, living crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth, as a grown up, can really bring you down.

For folks in such a predicament we always suggest that they at least take a look at Invisalign. This orthodontic solution can scarcely be called “braces” at all!

Invisalign utilizes clear plastic (nearly invisible) aligners to get you the same great results that conventional braces would deliver.

But there are some real improvements in the process.

Since this system does not rely on metal brackets and wires, your treatment will be discreet.

There will be no awkward in-office adjustments every month. In fact, you will just wear each set of aligners for two weeks or so before switching them out at home for the next set that is needed to keep your treatment on schedule.

The Invisalign gear is comfortable, so you won’t have to put up with any bleeding or mouth sores along the way.

Because the aligners are removable, you can continue to eat whatever you want, whenever you want. You just pop the aligners out and rinse them off to keep them clean, you won’t have to carry special tools around.

The best part is that your Invisalign treatment usually wraps up in only about 12 months time!

Doesn’t that sound like a great way to go?
