6 Month Smiles
How do you feel about your smile when you look at your teeth in the mirror? Do you like what you see? Or are you bothered by the crowding on your bottom teeth or the way your front teeth overlap? Do you maybe have a tooth that is sticking out at an odd angle or wide gaps between your teeth?
If these imperfections make you feel self-conscious about your smile, it might be time for a change. Adult orthodontics have come a long way over the past few years, and now you can improve the appearance and health of your smile in just six short months with practically invisible braces.
What Is 6 Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles is an innovative new procedure for straightening teeth in adults to give you an attractive and healthy smile. The procedure uses clear brackets on the teeth in front and doesn’t involve the back teeth at all. This makes for a much faster and more efficient straightening process.
Six Month Smiles is comfortable to wear, and many of our patients like that fact that it’s difficult to see the actual braces. We understand that it’s important for adults to maintain a certain image, especially in the workplace, and we want to help you keep up that image while you are wearing the braces. Dr. Rhandawa will work with you to keep your braces in great shape and keep your progress on track.
On average, treatment with 6 Month Smiles lasts… well… six months! If you need more extensive correction, your treatment may last an extra month or two, and if you need less correction, you could be done in as few as five months. Dr. Rhandawa will discuss your treatment plan with you and what you can expect – including how long your treatment is likely to last.
Do I Really Need Braces?
For many people, slightly crooked or gapped teeth are an endearing imperfection, and there’s nothing wrong with that. We do want you to consider, however, that crowded, overlapping, or gapped teeth can actually affect the health of your teeth and gums.
When your teeth are crowded, it’s difficult to properly brush and floss in between them. This can lead to a buildup of plaque and tartar between your teeth and increase your risk of developing cavities, decay, and gum disease. Gaps between teeth can make it easier to trap food after eating, which can lead to bad breath and increased bacteria in your mouth. And teeth that overlap make it difficult to clean their surfaces, again increasing your risk for cavities and decay.
