Are you looking for the discretion of clear aligners but the quick results of more traditional braces? Dr. Pamela Cain offers mixed appliance therapy to give patients straighter, more beautiful smiles in a fraction of the time, but with the discretion and comfort patients have come to expect with clear aligners.
How Clear Aligners Work
Many people want a straighter smile, but do not want visible braces. Today’s Dentistry in Knoxville, TN offers Six Month Smiles, which is a revolutionary, barely visible clear braces system.
As an added bonus, this treatment produces results in as little as 6 months using a combination of brackets and wires that blend in with the natural appearance of your teeth. These brackets are customized to fit each patient’s mouth, providing discreet, natural, and effective results in a fraction of the time of traditional metal braces.
Mixed Appliance Therapy Gives You Straighter Teeth in Less Time
This treatment is called mixed appliance therapy because it combines clear aligners on the top arch of teeth and clear, fixed brackets on the lower arch. Most patients have more crowded teeth in the lower arch, which can be corrected faster using clear brackets. The top arch often requires less correction, and can be treated with clear aligners instead of more visible braces.
This mixture of appliances helps us provide results on both arches of the teeth in the same amount of time. Patients receive the speed of short-term orthodontic care and the discretion they have come to expect from clear aligners.
Benefits of Mixed Appliance Therapy
Mixed appliance therapy offers patients several benefits:
- Reduced treatment time compared to traditional metal braces
- Discreet treatment
- Ability to treat different dental concerns at the same time
- Reduced cost compared to traditional orthodontic treatment
