How Do 6 Month Braces Work?
The 6 Month Braces technique was designed to treat crooked teeth in adults. Since we focus on the front teeth and don’t need to make significant changes to your back teeth, your treatment time becomes much shorter. Some people worry that because the 6 Month Braces technique works so quickly and effectively, it must be more uncomfortable and require a great deal of force to get the desired results. The truth is that 6 Month Braces use very low force to gently and comfortably guide the teeth into their correct position.
Another feature that makes this technique popular is that 6 Month Braces actually cost less than regular braces. Why? A shorter treatment time means fewer office visits. We know you’re busy and have better things to do than hang out in a dental office (even our dental office!). With 6 Month Braces, your teeth will be straight and beautiful before you know it.
Why Straighten Your Teeth?
When your teeth are not lined up correctly, are crowded, or have gaps, cleaning them properly can be difficult. You may have trouble reaching areas of your teeth with your toothbrush, difficulty sliding dental floss in between crowded teeth, or food may get caught in gaps between teeth and become stuck there long enough for plaque and tartar to build up. Over time, crooked teeth are more prone to cavities, decay, and gum disease. Additionally, crooked teeth can put excessive pressure on other teeth, which could result in your teeth chipping, fracturing, becoming loose and even eventually falling out.
Good oral health is important; decay and gum disease have been linked to serious health conditions including heart disease and diabetes. When you straighten your teeth with the 6 Month Braces technique, you give yourself the gift of not just better oral health, but better overall health as well.
