Six Month Smiles
Are you an adult who wants to straighten their front teeth, but do not want to spend two to three years wearing comprehensive braces? Have you considered or heard about Six Month Smiles? Six Month Smiles are clear braces specifically engineered to correct the alignment of your front teeth in just six months.
Comprehensive Braces vs. Six Month Smiles
Comprehensive braces can be difficult to wear and take care of. You typically will have to schedule an appointment every four to six weeks to tighten your braces. You will also need to have a meticulous dental hygiene routine that is followed on a daily basis, which can be quite challenging. If you do not follow a strict regimen for the duration of your treatment, the consequences can be disastrous! Plaque biofilm colonies will grow and etch stain lines and orthodontic spots all around the appliance hardware. Unchecked biofilm will create cavities, decay, and periodontitis.
Six Month Smiles have many advantages over comprehensive braces. They require less time, there is less risk involved, and they can be quite discreet. Of course, every orthodontic appliance has its own sets of pros and cons. The first step is to make an appointment so that you can sit down with Demi Athans, DMD and discuss your options. If you are just looking to straighten your front teeth, Six Month Smiles might be right for you.
