FAQs About Obtaining a Straighter Smile in Just Six Months
Question: Why do we need to address misalignment?
Answer: Teeth that overlap or are crooked are often difficult to clean, which allows food to remain trapped between teeth, increasing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. In addition, uneven teeth may cause stress on the jaw joints, which boosts the chances of TMJ disorder or bruxism developing. Finally, correcting your smile improves the esthetics of your smile and may provide a confidence boost.
Question: What is Six Month Smiles?
Answer: While this system does use metal brackets and wires, treatment only takes about three to six months instead of one-and-a-half to two years. Afterward, you will need to wear a retainer to ensure the teeth don’t slip from their new, optimal placement.
Question: Who is the best candidate for this treatment?
Answer: We typically recommend the procedure for adults who have minor misalignment or who have received braces but their teeth have since shifted. We can perform a free cosmetic consultation to see if you qualify for this treatment.
Question: How does this differ from Invisalign?
Answer: Invisalign actually uses a series of clear plastic aligners to correct teeth over the period of a year. Both provide faster treatment than traditional braces. However, Invisalign takes a little longer while remaining practically invisible during treatment.
