Need for SPEED
Every patient is different, just as every smile is different. As such, the team at Coastal Carolina Orthodontics has a wide array of treatments to meet your needs.
In addition to traditional braces and Invisalign, we proudly offer newer treatments that employ the latest in orthodontic technology. One such is example, is the SPEED System.
The SPEED System relies upon SPEED Braces, which, unlike traditional braces, have eliminated the need for elastics in the teeth straightening process. SPEED Braces utilize small devices called “Spring Clips” to move teeth into position.
How, you may ask?
Spring Clips are crafted by your orthodontist to store a certain amount of built-up energy that, when incorporated into braces, applies a light, continuous pressure onto your teeth that gently shifts them towards the desired position. Because of the Spring Clips, SPEED Braces bring you a lot of benefits.
Some of these Benefits Include:
- Typically SPEED Braces are 1/3 the size of traditional braces, giving them more cosmetic appeal.
- Spring Clips decrease friction, thus increasing comfort.
- No elastics means less food gets trapped in your braces, and it is a lot easier to stick to a thorough brushing and flossing routine.
- Using the SPEED System could potentially lead to fewer check-in appointments throughout your orthodontic treatment at our Jacksonville, Morehead City, or Havelock, NC office.
The doctors and staff at Coastal Carolina Orthodontics want to help you achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of in a way that is comfortable and easy for you. Therefore, whether it be through the SPEED System, or one of our other treatment options, we will customize a plan that will have you grinning in no time.
