We all know that feeling of being overwhelmed on a daily basis, working from sunrise to sunset and not getting much of a break or time for ourselves. On top of that, we don’t all have the benefit of a predictable schedule, meaning the time we spend outside of work needs to be well spent. So what happens if you need orthodontal care? If you’re busy working, how are you going to find time to go to the orthodontist? And will your treatment affect your work life? In this blog, we’re going to take a look at how Camilo Riano Orthodontics can help you achieve straight and healthy looking teeth quickly and with little hassle. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact our orthodontist office.

Options to Suit Your Lifestyle
One concern many people have about braces is that they’re not suited for adults or people with a busy lifestyle. Although this may hold true for traditional braces, Camilo Riano Orthodontics doesn’t just offer traditional braces; we offer Invisalign, Incognito lingual braces, and clear ceramic braces. So, what’s the difference, you may ask?
Traditional braces are what most people think of when they think of braces: metal, tacky, and annoying brackets that stick off the teeth. This type of braces is very noticeable to other people and in pictures, so if you don’t like the look, you’re going to want to avoid them.
On the other hand, Invisalign, clear ceramic braces, and lingual braces all have one thing in common: they’re unnoticeable. Not by you, you’ll still know that they’re on, however, your coworkers or friends will not. Many people are self-conscious about their teeth and overall appearance and when you’re leading a busy lifestyle, the last thing you want to worry about is the appearance of your teeth, making these a great option.
Shorter Treatment Times
Another concern a busy person may have about orthodontal care is how long they need to have braces on. Although the amount of time you’ll need braces varies significantly considering how badly misaligned the teeth are, you can expect them to be on for around six to 18 months and in some cases, more. The good news is that here at Camilo Riano Orthodontics, we have something called AcceleDent. This is an easy-to-use device that is placed in the mouth for 20 minutes a day and is clinically proven to move teeth as much as 50 percent faster than normal. Many patients also reported a reduction in discomfort, meaning you’ll be able to concentrate better on the work you need to get done.
You’ll be happy to know that AcceleDent works with all types of braces and can easily fit around brackets if need be. It’s perfectly safe to use and does not lead to any additional pain. However, it is important to note, that in order to get the most out of AcceleDent, you need to use it consistently.
You may be wondering how this device works and if it really does what it says. Essentially, AcceleDent works by sending small vibrations or micro-pulses through your gums and teeth in order to enhance the movement created by your braces or Invisalign aligners. This technology is known as SoftPulse Technology and is relatively new to the industry.
Dispelling the Myth About Adult Orthodontics
There’s a common misconception that braces are only for kids or teens, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, your teeth can move no matter what age you are. Although we typically recommend you receive orthodontic treatment while you’re young, it’s never too late, and if you didn’t have that opportunity before, you do now!
