Faster orthodontics

Many adults would like straighter teeth. Overcrowded or gappy teeth can cause a range of problems, including difficulties with biting and chewing and keeping your teeth clean. Your self-confidence may be affected, and you may hide your teeth when you smile.

Most adults are suitable for our faster anterior alignment orthodontic systems, Cfast and Inman Aligner, which can substantially reduce the length of treatment time while remaining kind and safe to teeth. Both treatments focus on applying gentle pressure to move the front four to six teeth into the correct position, and offer a cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing way to straighten most adults’ teeth.

Our dentist Cathleen Perrin offers a FREE faster anterior alignment orthodontic consultation to adults to determine if this is a suitable solution for you.
