Are You Embarrassed by Your Smile?
Many patients come to our Charlotte dentist office wanting straight teeth and believe that they only have 3 choices:
- Do nothing and just live with their crooked teeth
- Go through 2-3 years of braces
- Have an expensive Smile Makeover done
The good news is that there is now another option: Six Month Braces! With practically invisible tooth-colored brackets and wires, and using only light forces, we can straighten your teeth faster than most people believe. Just look at what we can do in only 6 months!
How Does Six-Month Braces Work?
Six-Month Braces uses light forces, nearly invisible clear brackets, and space-age wires that naturally work to position the teeth right where they should be.
Are There People This Won’t Work For?
Of course, there are patients who really SHOULD have comprehensive orthodontic treatment, which we also offer with Invisalign. Patients who might not be good candidates for Six-Month Braces may include:
- If you have any symptoms of TMD, or jaw problems. Muscle pain, joint pain, frequent headaches—these are some symptoms of TMJ problems, and if you have them, it is important to have that thoroughly diagnosed before orthodontic care of any kind. Braces might help, or they might make it worse.
- If one jaw is significantly larger than the other.
- Patients who just don’t have attractive teeth. Sometimes even a straight smile doesn’t look good if the teeth are too small or too big, or if they are badly discolored. In this case, porcelain veneers may be a better option.
Six Month Braces Are Great for ALL Ages
Is Six-Month Braces a New Thing? Is it Safe?
The concept of limited orthodontic treatment has been around for decades. However, in years past, it was much more difficult because of the wire materials available, which required more specialized training in how to bend them for specific purposes. Nowadays, we use more advanced wires that literally do much of the work by themselves, so more and more dentists (and orthodontists!) are offering this service to adults who just don’t want to, and who don’t need to, go through comprehensive orthodontic care. The clear brackets are also a far more attractive option for working adults who don’t want everyone to know they have braces. 🙂
