Clear Braces Q & A

How long do traditional braces take to straighten teeth?

Traditional metal braces often take around two years, but for some patients, it can take even longer. Traditional braces resolve many different bite problems and orthodontic issues, including:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Open bite
  • High canines
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Protruding upper or lower teeth

If you want a straight smile in a shorter amount of time, Fastbraces® may be a good alternative for you.

What are Fastbraces?

The Fastbraces system is an alternative to traditional metal braces for patients who want quicker results. With Fastbraces, you can correct any of the problems traditional braces can resolve, but you can do it in 3-12 months instead of two years.

Fastbraces uses unique high-performance triangle brackets and flexible wires. While traditional metal braces move the crowns into position first, and then later the roots, Fastbraces moves the crowns and roots at the same time.  

What are clear aligners?

Clear aligners are plastic trays that you click over your teeth. They’re transparent, flexible, removable, and comfortable.

Like braces, clear aligners move your teeth gradually. You’ll wear a series of slightly adjusted aligners, usually changing them out every 1-2 weeks.

The total straightening time with clear aligners will depend on several factors, including how serious your alignment problem is and how many sets of aligners you use. Most patients straighten their teeth in around 12 months with clear aligners.

Can braces fit into my budget?

Dr. Rendon strongly believes that patients deserve affordable dental care, and he’ll discuss financing options with you in detail. If your insurance covers braces, Dr. Rendon and his team can help you with your claim.

If money is tight, Dr. Rendon can discuss a financing plan, the in-house discount plan, or other options.
