Limited Orthodontic treatment targets specific complaints without addressing all of a problem list or is such that the treatment or tooth movement is so minor the treatment is deemed limited. Limited treatment is at a fraction of the cost of comprehensive treatment, and has its own insurance code for coverage.
A partial or full set of braces may be used to correct a limited scope of a problem list, such as closing a specific space.

You will wear each appliance approximately 2-4 weeks in the easy-to-remember Red, White and Blue sequence.

An appliance that looks similar to a traditional retainer, but is made on a model on which a lab has reset crooked teeth to an ideal straight position. This way, when a patient wears the appliance, it moves the reset/crooked teeth straight over a brief period of time.
