At James V. Karhohs, DDS, MS, PC, we use SPEED System™ Orthodontics to give you a treatment that is fast, comfortable, and highly effective. Our self-ligating braces are not quite as discreet as Invisalign®, but are significantly faster – sometimes completing treatments twice as quickly as traditional braces or clear aligners. We invite you to contact us at 616-784-4300 to schedule your consultation with Dr. James Karhohs and learn if SPEED self-ligating braces in Grand Rapids, Michigan, are the best option for you!
SPEED braces have revolutionized orthodontics. These innovative self-ligating braces offer a number of benefits, including:
• Advanced Technology
SPEED braces eliminate the elastics required by traditional braces, relying instead on an energy-storing “spring clip” to straighten your teeth. This spring clip works like a computer chip inside your braces, and is “programmed” by our talented orthodontist to apply light, continuous force and gently move your teeth into their proper positions. This advanced technology is unique to SPEED braces, and provides you with greater comfort and fewer visits with our orthodontist during your treatment.
Additionally, SPEED braces are about 1/3 smaller than traditional braces. This gives you more esthetically appealing appearance during your treatment, and results in less food trapping, making it easier for you to maintain a healthy mouth throughout your treatment.
