Orthodontic Treatment Alternatives

six month smiles Lancaster OHDid you know it is possible to straighten your smile discreetly and quickly – especially when compared to conventional orthodontic treatment options? Our practice understands that traditional metal braces can be uncomfortable and make patients feel self-conscious about their appearance. This is why we offer an alternative to traditional braces with Six Month Smiles. Following is some helpful information about this orthodontic treatment alternative.

Benefits of Six Months Smiles

Six Month Smiles presents a few unique advantages to patients when compared to traditional braces. First, the Six Month Smiles system is designed to facilitate tooth movement faster so that patients can enjoy a straighter, healthier smile quickly. Expedient treatment is accomplished by addressing the placement and alignment of one’s most visible teeth. Additionally, only treating the most visible teeth means that minimal orthodontic appliances are needed, thus increasing one’s comfort level while wearing Six Month Smiles.

Using a combination of tooth-colored brackets and inconspicuous wires, Six Month Smiles provides more than just fast treatment; it is very discreet. Since traditional orthodontia can be very obvious to others, it can make treatment a negative experience for some folks. Using tooth-colored materials makes the smile straightening process much more enjoyable since it allows for very discreet treatment. For those considering Six Month Smiles, it is important to know that this treatment is best for adults who want to straighten their teeth for the first time or for those who have previously had orthodontic treatment but have experienced unwanted tooth movement after wisdom teeth come in. In some cases, teenagers are candidates for this teeth-straightening system, too.

How to Choose Orthodontic Treatment

When it comes to choosing the orthodontic treatment that is right for you, it is best to consult with a dentist. A dental professional can evaluate the placement of your teeth, identify specific orthodontic problems, and use diagnostics to attain a working understanding of how certain types of orthodontic appliances will move teeth. After performing a physical examination, your dental provider can then provide recommendations tailored to your specific situation. Orthodontics, like many other things, is not a one size fits all science and should be approached with the individual’s needs in mind.
