The Short-Term Orthodontics Revolution Is Here

Welcome to the Perrigo Dental Care blog! We are excited that you dropped by our virtual home. What brings you here today?

Are you looking for…

…a smile that won’t make you feel embarrassed?

…fast treatment?

…a system that won’t draw unwanted attention to your mouth?

…a competent dentist in the Hoover, AL area?

Then short-term orthodontics from Perrigo Dental Care, might be exactly what you need! We have all the necessary tools and training to straighten things out.

We know how discouraging it can be to try to get out there and socialize or network at work, when you are ashamed of the condition of your teeth. People always make note of your smile.

We understand that, as an adult, you don’t want to be saddled with a treatment that lasts 2-3 years. Moreover, you certainly don’t want people to gawk at all the construction project in your mouth. That only adds to the humiliation of the situation.

That’s where short-term orthodontics come in. We feature two great options for quickly and discreetly transforming your smile.

Fastbraces: A Quick And Powerful Solution

These braces are different than the ones you would have seen in action back in the day. Rather than relying on square brackets with round wires, for this method we use triangular brackets with square wires. Does it matter? Absolutely!

This minor variation affords us the opportunity to accomplish much more movement in far less time. Fastbraces utilize the new and improved shape of the brackets and wires in order to give your braces more leverage to move your roots and crowns at the same time. Pretty cool, right?

You’ll love that, with the Fastbraces system, your entire orthodontic treatment can actually be completed in a matter of weeks rather than 2-3 long years. Isn’t that something?

Plus, with tooth-colored wires, no one will ever know that you are sporting braces for the brief time that you need to wear them.

Sounds awesome, right? Come see for yourself!

Invisalign: Clear Braces Lead To Better Smiles

Traditional braces had their drawbacks: you had to endure uncomfortable hardware that stays in around the clock for 2-3 years, you were forced to give up some of the foods you love, you’d be seen carrying special tools for cleaning, there were mouth sores and cuts, you needed to take time out for in-office adjustments, and then there was also all the hard-to-miss metal in your mouth.

But things are different with Invisalign. Truth be told, Invisalign is such a radical departure from the old way, that these “braces” can hardly be viewed as braces at all. This system is more like wearing special mouthguards or whitening trays to get the job done.

First of all, Invisalign utilizes clear plastic (almost invisible) aligners to get you the same great results that traditional braces can deliver. Remember, we said no metal!

There will be no mandatory monthly adjustments at our office. Instead, you will simply wear each set of aligners for two weeks before switching them out on your own to keep your treatment moving forward.

To summarize: Invisalign is a subtle treatment. The gear is smooth and comfortable. The aligners are removable. Eating and cleaning is easy. And there won’t be any sores or cuts from the braces themselves. The best part is that Invisalign can usually be completed in only about 12 months!

When we are finished with you, you’ll have plenty to smile about!
