What are Six Month Braces? How do they work?
Powerprox Six Month Braces are a type of alignment therapy that takes old orthodontic technology and makes it work in new ways. Six Month Braces are designed to gently align the teeth that are visible when you smile. This treatment is most often used for mild cases of cosmetic misalignment and crowding or gapping issues. Six Month Braces can help you achieve the beautiful smile you have always wanted quickly and effectively.
Six Month Braces work by using a gentle force to gradually shift your teeth into place. We use clear ceramic brackets (not the ugly metal brackets used with traditional braces) and a shape memory wire to lightly encourage your teeth to move into the desired position. This light-touch approach actually moves teeth faster than over-tightening the wire would. We also focus only on the front teeth that are visible when you smile. Fewer teeth to move means less time to move them.
Do Six Month Braces really take only six months to work?
Yes! In most cases, we can offer you the results you want in just about six months. Due to the use of the shape-memory wire mentioned above and the precision-focused approach, Six Month Braces can improve your smile in half the time (or less!) of traditional braces. We know that two or three years is a long time to have metal brackets and wires stuck in your mouth … Six Month Braces are designed to give you the smile you want without the commitment and hassle.
Why should I choose Six Month Braces over traditional orthodontic treatments?
Six Month Braces offers many benefits when compared to traditional metal braces. First and most importantly, they work much faster. We can have you in and out of your braces in just a fraction of the time. Second, they work comfortably. You will not have to deal with the pain or discomfort typically associated with over-tightened wires. Last, they will preserve your self-image. Because Six Month Braces uses clear ceramic brackets, your braces will blend right in with your smile, never drawing unwanted attention. Six Month Braces can help you avoid many of the pitfalls of traditional orthodontics.
Are Six Month Braces right for me? Do you offer other orthodontic options?
There are many great reasons why Six Month Braces are superior to traditional orthodontic treatment. However, you should not choose Six Month Braces if it is not the right kind of treatment for your situation. If you have moderate or severe malocclusion or bite problems, you should probably consider an alternative solution. We recommend Six Month Braces for very mild misalignment cases. Six Month Braces is great for use as a cosmetic-focused treatment.
