When we have dental misalignment, we may feel embarrassed about the appearance of our smile. But beyond aesthetics, our oral health could suffer as well. While there are treatment options like braces or Invisalign® available, many people simply cannot commit to the lengthy time frame. But what if your Dallas, TX, dental practice could offer an even smile in only a few months? In today’s blog, we’re talking about the benefits of Six Month Smiles!
The Benefits of Correcting Misalignment
In adulthood, your misalignment could make you feel uncomfortable with the appearance of your smile. Along with impacts on your social interactions, poor alignment is also linked to higher risks of tooth decay and gum disease, and even TMJ disorder and bruxism. But by correcting your uneven smile, you improve the function, health, and beauty of your smile. With the Six Month Smiles system, this can be done in a fraction of the time required for traditional braces and Invisalign® aligners.
The Downsides of Braces and Invisalign®
While effective, traditional braces do have an impact on your overall appearance, and they usually have to be worn for at least two years. You may also encounter discomfort as well. Invisalign® is often preferred because this involves clear aligners in lieu of brackets and wires. However, you’re still looking at a time commitment of at least a year, and you have to keep up with your aligners and wear them as prescribed. Essentially, these systems are difficult to maintain given your already full and hectic schedule. You need something that requires a less extensive time frame, while still being barely visible. With Six Month Smiles, we can offer just that!
The Six Month Smiles Process
The treatment process involves attaching clear brackets to the teeth that need to be repositioned, not every single one as you would with braces. We then connect tooth-colored wires to them. During periodic visits to our office, we will adjust the tension in the wires to shift the teeth with brackets on them. On average, people see optimal results in as little as four to eight months, with six being the average. You could have a brand-new smile in between your routine cleaning appointments!
