When it comes to orthodontics, there are now many treatments available. Standard metal braces are still available, but there are other ones to choose from. It might seem a little overwhelming to weigh all your options, but when you visit a professional dentist, he or she will assist you in picking the best method for your teeth.

1. ClearCorrect

ClearCorrect utilizes an innovative system. Instead of having brackets and wires adhered directly to your teeth, you wear clear aligners over your teeth that can be removed. This results in two main benefits. First, they are virtually invisible, so no one will be capable of seeing them. This is great for people who might be a little self-conscious of their smiles. The second primary benefit is that since they can be removed, you can take them out when you eat, meaning no restrictions have to be placed on your diet.

This method will not be ideal for everybody. Some of the more common issues ClearCorrect is used for include overbites, underbites and overcrowding. You will need to talk to your dentist to see if ClearCorrect is the way to go.

2. Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles is another form or orthodontic treatment you can receive. Similarly to ClearCorrect, Six Month Smiles is practically invisible except it uses clear brackets. This makes them a discreet method. As the name suggests, treatment generally lasts for about six months, so you can get a new smile very quickly. The short turnaround time also makes them less expensive than other type of treatments.

Ideal candidates for Six Month Smiles will be people with moderately crowded teeth. Adults with minor cosmetic concerns should look into this treatment. You will also need to have all your adult teeth, meaning some teenagers may not be able to get this treatment.
