What is the best type of adult braces?
Posted 14th February, 2019
More and more adults are looking into methods of achieving a straighter smile. Modern dental and orthodontic technology means that there are now more adult braces treatment options available than ever before. Whether you have crooked, gappy or misaligned teeth, there are now many ways for you to fix these problems.
With so many solutions available, it can be difficult to choose the best method for you and your lifestyle. At Gwersyllt Dental Care in Wrexham, we did a lot of research into different treatment methods, before choosing the Six Month Smiles treatment to offer our patients.
What is Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles is an adult braces solution which straightens the teeth in just six months. Imagine having straight teeth in time for the end of 2019 – it is possible!
Your teeth are gently moved into their new position by using a set of fixed tooth-coloured braces. With tooth coloured brackets and clear wires, the system is barely noticeable. Compared to modern removable braces, they provide a quicker and often more successful result.
How does Six Month Smiles work?
Similarly to traditional train-track style braces, Six Month Smiles works by guiding the teeth into a straighter position. However, the process is sped up significantly from approximately two years to just six months. The system is effective for adults with crooked, spaced or misaligned teeth who want to get a straighter smile quickly.
The average treatment length is six months. In this time, you will visit the dentist regularly for them to assess your treatment and make adjustments to your brace. These small adjustments will be what guides your teeth into their new position. Your dentist will be able to discuss the expected results of the treatment with you before you begin.
What are the benefits of Six Month Smiles?
There are many benefits of the Six Month Smiles teeth straightening solution. Firstly, as discussed above, the treatment time takes just six months on average. This is because the system concentrates on straightening the front teeth, as opposed to the whole mouth.
The next benefit is that the system is very discreet. It uses tooth-coloured brackets and clear wires which people would struggle to see if they just glanced. In comparison to traditional brace systems, they are almost invisible.
The last benefit is that it tends to be the most cost-effective teeth straightening method. This is down to the quickness of the treatment, the fact it is purely a cosmetic treatment and solely concentrates on straightening the front teeth.
