What Types of Braces Work the Fastest?

What Types of Braces Work the Fastest

Many people often consider price, style, and duration when considering which braces to wear. Currently, clear aligners offer the fastest correction speed. For reference, Invisalign treatments can be finished in several months, whereas metal braces can take several years.

It’s not just clear aligners that offer speed. Another form of fast-correcting braces is self-ligating braces. These can correct common jaw alignment issues in under a year. They make use of special brackets and wire loops that hold the archwire in place. As a result, patients feel less discomfort when eating or speaking.

Magnetic braces are also an option for those who want speed and comfort in their treatment plan. These braces generally stay on for less than a year. They are extra effective if the patient has a high level of commitment and discipline in following the established regimen.

In the quest for speed, patients are opting for new forms of braces. However, many people put too much importance into the fastest treatment, and not the most effective.

Are the Fastest Means of Correction Always the Best?

Traditional metal braces receive a lot of flak for the way they look. However, they are without a doubt the most effective type of braces. Clear aligners are generally used for basic alignment problems. But traditional braces are best suited for jaw alignment issues, crowded teeth, and more.

Speed should not be the biggest concern when choosing the type of braces. While Invisalign is quick, it does not offer the same control that braces do. Metal braces are not as attractive as clear aligners, but they work the best for more complex needs.

What Type of Braces Are Right for Me?

As you can see, there is a lot to consider when choosing the right type of braces. You will want to start by considering your budget and orthodontic needs. Your orthodontist will likely recommend the form of brace that he thinks is best suited for your particular need.
