Pitts21 Braces Can Improve Your Smile

How you look often plays a big role in determining how you feel about yourself. If you deal with a crooked, crowded, or misaligned smile, it can often hamper the type of success you want on a personal and professional level. For kids, wearing metal braces can further contribute to feeling stressed out and uncomfortable when in school, especially when starting a new grade. Fortunately, at Dr. Carr Orthodontics, we offer our patients a variety of options when selecting the right orthodontic treatment for them, including such revolutionary advances as Pitts21 braces.

What are Pitts21 Braces?

Braces have changed a lot in the last 15 years. If you wore braces, you likely wore older technology that used elastics to connect the wire to the bracket. The older elastic systems created uncomfortable friction after each appointment and had other challenges including: difficulty cleaning, tooth removal, and longer treatment times.

Pitts 21 uses the latest in braces technology by securing the bracket to the wire using a frictionless sliding door. The good news for you and your child is this leads to faster treatment times, exceptional comfort, and the most beautiful smiles.

What are the Advantages of Pitts21 Braces?

Compared to traditional metal braces, Pitts21 braces offer a number of advantages that include:


Designed for shorter treatment times. With the precision of Pitts 21, your orthodontist will be able to
deliver exceptional results sooner.

Fewer appointments to fit into your already busy schedule. The efficient Pitts 21 system means that your child’s teeth will move quickly and predictably, so fewer appointments may be needed.


Pitts 21 braces are designed with smooth rounded corners to create a more comfortable experience. Pitts 21 also has a smaller profile, and a rubber band-less door, which supports better hygiene since plaque has less of an opportunity to accumulate.

Pitts 21 braces are specially designed to move teeth faster and with less force, so there is almost no discomfort. Gone are the days of painful wire tightening. With our virtually frictionless system, your child's tooth movement will go unnoticed and the results will be apparent sooner.

Are There Any Disadvantages?

While Pitts21 braces offer a less discreet option when compared to traditional metal braces, they are not entirely invisible. Patients who want to undergo their orthodontic treatment without anyone noticing should consider Invisalign, which uses a clear plastic aligner to straighten a patient’s smile. However, not every patient is a candidate for Invisalign. During your orthodontic consultation, Dr. Carr will be able to fully explain which types of orthodontic treatment can best meet your individual oral health needs.

If you’re looking for an orthodontic treatment option that will provide you with the stunningly straight, healthy-looking smile you’ve been wanting in less time and with less discomfort, then Pitts21 braces may be right for you.
