Have you heard about Six Month Smiles, the revolutionary development in orthodontics? If you are an adult with crooked or misaligned teeth, maybe you have considered braces but don’t want to take years to get straight teeth or simply want to avoid all the shiny metal. Good news! With Six Month Smiles, you can get straighter teeth within six months in Nashville, and the wires and brackets are hardly noticeable!

Six Month Smiles in Nashville is offered at Devine Dentistry. We’d like to share with you what you can expect if you decide this orthodontic treatment is right for you.

How Six Month Smiles works

Six Month Smiles uses clear brackets and wires, this way your braces aren’t as noticeable. The brackets are placed only on teeth that need treatment since this orthodontic approach is purely for cosmetic purposes. Because of this approach, fewer adjustments are needed to achieve results in a shorter amount of time than compared to traditional braces.

Can I really straighten my teeth in six months?

Yes! With Six Month Smiles, we certainly can straighten your teeth within six months. Since Six Month Smiles only focuses on straightening your teeth for cosmetic purposes, not for alignment such as to treat TMJ disorder or an overbite or underbite, teeth can be moved within this short time frame. If, however, you require more extensive treatment, traditional braces may be a better option for you.

Does moving my teeth that fast cause pain?

Six Month Smiles is an orthodontic treatment known to be more comfortable than traditional metal brackets and wires. However, you still may experience some tenderness or soreness after each adjustment. We recommend sticking to a diet with easy to chew foods for the first couple of days following an adjustment. You also can take over-the-counter pain medication to help ease any discomfort.

What to keep in mind

Since Six Month Smiles uses ceramic brackets, it is important to keep your teeth clean by brushing and flossing daily. You may want to avoid or limit your intake of foods and beverages that cause staining such as marinara, wine, coffee, and even smoking or tobacco use.

Are ceramic braces for me?

Six Month Smiles may not be the best fit for everyone. If you have severely misaligned teeth, need braces to correct a jaw alignment problem, or do not practice good oral hygiene, then Six Month Smiles may not be the best option. However, if you are an adult that would like to receive minor adjustments to your teeth to make them appear straighter and give you a more confident smile, then contact us today and ask about Six Month Smiles.
