What Is Hybrid Orthodontic Treatment?

For many adults and teens who desire quick and discreet orthodontics, hybrid treatment is ideal. It combines the best attributes of braces and clear aligners. This involves using self-ligating braces for up to six months to rapidly unravel crowding, broaden the smile, improve smile arc, and do most of the heavy lifting. After the self-ligating braces work their magic, braces are removed, and we do the fine-tuning with our clear aligners. Hybrid treatment allows us to correct your teeth much faster than with just aligners alone.

What Are the Benefits of Hybrid Orthodontics?

The main benefit is shorter overall treatment time.

We combine the fast initial alignment of teeth with braces with the accuracy of digital orthodontics for the final finishing portion of orthodontic treatment with aligners.

Hybrid treatment also allows patients who could not have been treated with aligners alone can become good aligner patients.
