How do high-speed braces work?
Compared to traditional braces, which are meant to change the patient’s bite (something that most adults don’t require), high-speed braces only adjust the position of your teeth, not your bite. Because of this, treatment time can take as little as six months! High-speed braces use clear or tooth-colored wires to adjust the position of your teeth. Your orthodontist may only focus on the teeth that show when you smile, lessening the required length of treatment even more.
A: This unique treatment focuses on the front teeth, or the teeth that show whenever you smile. This is a cosmetic realignment, and focusing only on these teeth makes the process much shorter than if we were adjusting your bite or an entire mouth full of teeth.
A: These braces, offered at Ottawa Braces, offer a seamless blend of time-tested technology from different ages of orthodontics. The main component of this treatment are the tooth-colored, nickel titanium arch wires that continuously put a slight force on your teeth to move them into the desired position.
A: Nope! Our high-speed braces are barely visible because the wires match the coloring of your teeth. They can be placed on the backs or the insides of teeth as well, completely hiding them from view! .
A: Not at all, though this is a common misconception. Only light force is used in the procedure of high-speed braces, so the experience is not at all intense or painful as you might expect of more traditional braces.
A: There are actually fewer risks to your teeth, roots and gums when using high-speed braces when compared to traditional braces. This is because less force is used, and for a shorter period of time.
A: Yes. To maintain the new position of your straightened teeth, you will need to wear a retainer.
A: The cost will depend on your specific needs for this treatment, but you can expect the cost of high-speed braces to be about half the cost of traditional braces. Additionally, many extended dental plans will cover this treatment.

A: Nope! As long as you are fifteen years old, or older, and you have crooked or spaced teeth that need no major alteration to your bite, this may be the solution for you and your smile.
