There's a couple of different systems that we've been using for a number of years now to shorten the time interval that people are actually in orthodontic care. We find, whether it's teenagers or it's adults, one of the biggest complaints about having braces is how long am I gonna be stuck with the braces or the trays or whatever procedure is going to be used to correct the alignment of the teeth. There's some great options out there. Two of the systems that we use, Fastbraces and Six Month Smiles, were specifically designed to shorten the treatment time. A lot of cases can be treated in six months to a year. There's even some more difficult cases that can be treated in a year to 15 months whereas traditional comprehensive orthodontic care might take two to three years. People just don't want to wait anymore. I don't know that it's even necessary.

Six Month Smiles®
At George A. Hoop, DDS, PA we can straighten your teeth fast with Six Month Smiles! The name isn’t a gimmick – the average treatment time is just six months!
But the time frame isn’t the only benefit of Six Month Smiles. You can also look forward to your braces being less noticeable because Six Month Smiles uses clear or tooth-colored brackets and wires! Dr. Hoop was the first level 2-trained Six Month Smiles provider in southwest Florida.
We can also provide a preview of your straight smile using Confidex!
Another short-term orthodontic treatment we can provide is Fastbraces. This innovative option uses specially shaped brackets and wires to straighten your teeth in as little as 120 days – that’s a fraction of the time traditional braces take! Dr. Hoop was one of the first authorized Fastbraces providers in Fort Myers and Naples, FL.
Instead of using braces, Invisalign uses a series of custom plastic aligners to gradually put your smile into proper alignment. So you’ll know what to expect, we’ll show you a preview of your straight smile with our outcome simulator! Here are just some of the advantages of Invisalign:
- Removeable – take out your aligners for special occasions, brushing, and flossing
- Comfortable – made from smooth plastic instead of metal brackets and wires
- Discreet – the clear plastic aligners are nearly invisible when worn
