Most people want a straight smile, but very rarely does that come in naturally. In most cases, some type of orthodontic treatment is needed to address misalignment issues, mild or severe. Traditional braces made of metal have been used for decades and are still a popular option. Another is clear aligners, such as the Invisalign system. While these are both effective, they take at least 12 months to complete. For those who want the same results but in a shorter period, Six Month Smiles can be the answer. Floss 365 Dental is happy to provide this treatment in Kennesaw, GA, to help patients achieve a smile they’ll love.
Six Month Smiles is an orthodontic treatment that utilizes clear braces to straighten teeth quickly. Unlike traditional braces that use metal brackets and wires, Six Month Smiles consists of clear brackets and tooth-colored wires that create a discreet appearance; they are practically unnoticeable on the surface. The system of brackets and wires applies a small but steady amount of pressure on the teeth, gradually changing their position. Over the course of about six months, the teeth will shift until they are in alignment.
After meeting with a Six Month Smiles provider for a consultation, you’ll have your braces placed with expert care. The procedure will take about an hour. Many people report some discomfort after having the braces placed for the first time, and following adjustments as they are made, but this is mild and usually lasts only a few days. Within the first month of treatment, your teeth will start changing position. Throughout your treatment during months one to five, you’ll return to see your dentist at Floss 365 Dental to have adjustments made to the braces. Typically, 3-5 adjustments are made, depending on the case. You should be able to see a big difference by this time. At the end of the treatment, you’ll have the braces removed to reveal your new, straighter smile.
Six Month Smiles is recommended for adults age 16 and up. It can be used to address crooked, spaced, or misaligned teeth without the pain of metal braces or the inconvenience of having to keep track of a system of aligners.
