With so many people wanting to straighten their teeth, the orthodontic industry has created more and more unique methods to fix misalignment. Considering that the number one complaint of undergoing orthodontic treatment is how it affects appearance, certain products have been designed to reduce the length of time hardware is worn as well as the materials used.
That’s where fast braces in Framingham come in. With Six Month Smiles, people can make their visible smile look straighter without worry of the long-term commitment associated with traditional braces. If you have questions, you just might get your answer today!
How Do I Qualify?
Most people can receive fast braces because they are mainly intended to solve cosmetic issues in the smile, including gaps and misalignment. Therefore, don’t expect to solve significant bite problems with the Six Month Smile regimen alone. It’s also usually ideal for adults over teens since adults are more likely to want to keep their current professional image.
How is This Any Different from Traditional Braces?
While most metal braces use multi-colored elastics and silver brackets and wires, Six Month Braces keeps cosmetics in mind. For example, it utilizes tooth-colored wires and clear brackets to make them as subtle as possible. That means the hardware is far less visible to people around you compared to traditional braces. This also makes it slightly less reflective to others than typical braces.
How Does it Work?
The average treatment time for metal braces is two years, but since Six Month Smiles is not intended to straighten all teeth, people can have a more targeted approach to fixing misalignment. Therefore, you can expect to complete treatment in a fraction of the time, which is about six months.
What are the Risks?
Like traditional braces, you’ll need to make minor adjustments to your oral care regimen as well as modify your diet to prevent damaging the orthodontic hardware. Without staying dedicated to your oral care routine, you put your teeth at risk of developing decay and your gums at risk of developing disease.
With that being said, having a crooked smile is more likely to cause problems down the road compared to a six-month long orthodontic treatment.
How Do They Differ From Clear Aligners?
Clear aligners from Invisalign and ClearCorrect have the same purpose as Six Month Smiles. They’re both designed to improve the cosmetic appearance of your smile. The main difference is that fast braces are not removed for cleaning or eating. They are considered a fixed device because only the dentist is supposed to remove and tighten them. That means you’ll have to visit the dentist more often to have them tightened and effectively shift teeth.
