Perhaps you have wanted straighter teeth for a long time, but hesitated to look into braces due to the time commitment. Even you were okay with wearing braces for 18 months to two years, the thought of wearing the traditional metal type didn’t appeal to you. If you want straight teeth, you owe it to yourself to learn more about Six Month Smiles from Glendora Family Dentistry.
How to Get Straight Teeth in Only Six Months
The braces that Dr. Desai attaches to your teeth function in much the same way as traditional metal braces. The major difference is that they are clear in color so they are not as detectable to others. Our Six Month Smile system is intended for adults who have crooked or misaligned teeth as well as those who have too large of a gap between some teeth. The clear braces put continuous pressure on the teeth until they move into the desired position. If you want to get your teeth corrected quickly, you can’t go wrong with these braces.
Orthodontic Treatment Isn’t Just for Cosmetic Reasons
Getting your teeth straightened definitely improves your smile, but there’s much more to it than that. People with crooked and misaligned teeth are at greater risk for gum disease and tooth decay because they are never able to clean their teeth fully. An improper bite can also lead to jaw pain and greater difficulty with chewing.
The average amount of time required to wear clear braces is six months, although the range goes from four to nine months. Once Dr. Desai removes your braces, you need to commit to wearing a retainer for several months after treatment to ensure that your teeth remain in their new position.
Clear braces and treatment time that is nearly 75 percent shorter than usual may sound like a dream, but we assure you it’s not. Please schedule a consultation with Glendora Family Dentistry today to learn more about Six Month Smiles.
