The goal of limited orthodontic treatment is to align the upper and lower front six teeth. Limited treatment typically does not address bite correction, posterior (back tooth) space closure, or significant horizontal, vertical, or transverse dental issues.
Limited treatment is typically performed on adults who prefer to have specific alignment problems addressed rather than undergo comprehensive orthodontic care. It is also takes less time than comprehensive orthodontic treatment (usually six to nine months) and is less expensive.
Some examples of limited orthodontics treatments include:
- Bloore removable aligner treatment
- MTM No Trace Lingual Braces
- Six Month Smiles
During your complimentary initial consultation, feel free to ask Dr. Schacter if limited orthodontic treatment is the right option for you.
