Quick Straight Teeth Clear Aligners
Quick Straight Teeth also offer a second type of teeth straightening that uses a similar method to Invisalign. These are a series of clear aligners that are almost completely invisible and are entirely removable. This is useful for those who don't mind waiting a little longer for their teeth straighten in exchange for a more discreet looking orthodontic system.
Alternatives to Quick Straight Teeth Clear Aligners
Quick Straight Teeth were not the first to come up with the concept of the clear aligner. In fact, the concept was first dreamed up by a man named Zia Chishti who later developed the concept into what is now known as Invisalign. Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to gradually move your teeth from their starting position to your desired smile. One of the biggest selling points of this product is the level of 3D technology used to create your 'desired smile'. At your first appointment you'll undergo a few x-rays so that a map of your teeth can be generated on the state of the art 3D software. Here you will be able to see the journey that your teeth are about to embark upon in order to reach the perfect smile at the end. Invisalign aligners should be worn for at least 20 hours of the day. However, it is fine and recommended for your to take out these braces when you are eating food or drinking. This means that you can actually continue to eat all the foods and drinks that you want. Compared to fixed braces this certainly gives you a lot more freedom.
Something to keep in mind...
One of the questions that you need to ask yourself before opting for these types of removable braces is if you have the self-discipline to keep the brace in for the 20 hours or more each day. If you think that you lack the willpower to keep the brace in then this could hold back your treatment time as it's going to take much longer for the brace to work than it should.
