Serving Brentwood, Belle Meade and Green Hills Areas of Nashville TN
The short answer is, yes. For patients seeking to straighten their teeth without the bother of traditional metal braces, Six Month Smiles can give you a smile that you desire. The best part is that Six Month Smiles is convenient, discreet, and comfortable!
What is Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, which means they are virtually invisible. Aesthetics is a major advantage over traditional braces that use silver metal brackets and wires that are noticeable to others when you speak or smile.
How long does it take to straighten my teeth?
On average, this revolutionary orthodontic treatment takes about six months to achieve desired results; it is a much shorter treatment as opposed to traditional metal braces, which can take several years or more. However, keep in mind that length of treatment may vary slightly, depending on your individual needs for straightening your teeth. But in general, treatment with Six Month Smiles is a fraction of the time compared to traditional braces.
Six Month Smiles vs. Traditional Braces
The biggest difference with Six Month Smiles, when compared to other forms of orthodontic treatment, is that it only treats your front teeth, the ones that are visible. No one can see your back teeth anyways! Unless you have severe bite misalignment, in which the back teeth may need straightening or realigning, Six Month Smiles may be right for you.
Is Six Month Smiles safe?
Six Month Smiles is both safe and effective for adults and some teens. Sometimes, teeth may need to be extracted to make room for existing teeth to be straightened. During your consultation, the dentist will discuss this possibility with you, although tooth extraction may not be necessary for some individuals. A significant advantage of straighter teeth is that they are easier to keep clean than crooked teeth. This means that your oral health should improve, so long as you continue a healthy regimen of oral hygiene by brushing and flossing daily, as well as visiting the dentist for routine dental examinations and cleanings.
Am I a candidate for Six Month Smiles?
If you are 15 years of age or older, and do not need bite realignment, you may be an ideal candidate for this procedure. Patients who suffer from a severe bite misalignment or who have temporomandibular joint disorder may require traditional orthodontics or other measures to treat their condition. The dentist will determine if you are a candidate for Six Month Smiles during your consultation.
You deserve to smile with confidence. If you are an adult with crooked teeth, a gap between your teeth, or just looking to improve the overall appearance of your smiles, consider Six Month Smiles. To get started, schedule a consultation with the dentist. During this appointment, the dentist will assess your needs for straight teeth, and discuss the timeline to achieve your results.
