If you haven’t already heard about Short Term Orthodontics, it’s time to listen up! Clear composite braces and tooth colored wires are used to give adults great looking smiles in an average time period of just six months.
The term “braces” has always implied “metal mouth for at least two years”. Short Term Ortho (STO) completely squashes this conventional thinking. The treatment philosophy is very similar to orthodontic treatment with clear aligners. The focus of treatment is to give adult patients great looking smiles by straightening their crooked teeth. However, since STO utilizes clear brackets, tooth movement is much faster and more predictable than orthodontic movement with clear aligners.
The short treatment times are a result of a shift in focus away from complete orthodontic correction and towards solving the patients’ chief cosmetic complaints. With STO we focusing on giving patients what they want (a nice smile) in a timeframe that is acceptable to them. “Straight teeth in six months” is an enormously attractive option!
