Straightening your teeth is not what it used to be. In the past, orthodontics was a notable commitment. It meant wearing metal brackets and wires for several months or more. Today’s orthodontics, however, offer more flexible options. Modern teeth straightening methods can certainly require metal braces for some patients, but for others, there are clear and short-term braces alternatives. A braces option that others don’t notice and doesn’t require years of treatment is a win-win for many adults!
What is Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles is the leading solution in short-term orthodontics. It works just like traditional braces, but the brackets are clear and only the front teeth are involved in treatment. Since most adults are only concerned about straightening the visible portion of their smile, Six Month Smiles allows for a much shorter treatment time. Just as its name suggests, results are often attained in just six months!
What are the Benefits of Six Month Smiles?
Besides the obvious advantage of a shorter time in braces, Six Month Smiles also delivers ideal comfort. The forces to move the teeth are gentle and gradual, making them more comfortable and easier to get used than traditional braces and most aligner therapies. In addition, since patients spend minimal time in these braces, there is often a drastic reduction in oral health problems that are commonly associated with poor dental hygiene during orthodontic treatment (such as staining, decay and gingivitis).
Six Month Smiles can also save your self-esteem, which is a valued bonus for adults. It includes clear brackets and tooth-colored wires that are barely visible to others. Speaking of savings, you will also enjoy the fact that Six Month Smiles is often more affordable than traditional orthodontic treatment options.
