Six Month Braces (Short-Term Ortho) in Elk Grove Village, IL
Have you ever considered straightening your teeth? More adults than ever are considering orthodontic treatment to improve the appearance
and health of their smiles. Unfortunately, many never check with a dentist about their options because they are afraid that fixing their smile will involve several years of metal braces.
Straightening your teeth as an adult is different than straightening as a teenager. For many people, only the front teeth need straightening, and we don't have to involve the back teeth at all.
Did you know that there's a braces system for adults that can give you a beautiful, straight smile in, on average, six months? Are you ready to find out if you're a candidate?
Can You Really Straighten a Smile in Six Months?
We really can.
We use a special type of braces on just the front teeth to gently guide them into position. The system works quickly, efficiently, and comfortably without causing any damage to your teeth or the ligaments holding them in place. The braces and wires are made of a material that matches the color of your teeth, so they will be subtle and barely visible. In fact, most people are unlikely to notice them unless they are up close!
What Kind of Problems Can These Braces Fix?
Six month braces are an effective treatment for a number of common orthodontic issues that tend to bother adults. Using this system, we can fix the following:
- Wide spaces or gaps
- Teeth that are twisted or overlapping
- Teeth that are out of place or growing at an unusual angle
Six month braces are not designed to fix significant bite issues, so if you are troubled by bite misalignment, you'll want to discuss your options with Dr. Advani so that he can provide a treatment recommendation.
In addition to improving the aesthetics of your smile, six month braces can also help keep your smile healthy. Crowding and overlapping teeth can make it difficult for you to brush and floss, and plaque and tartar can be caught between your teeth for a longer period of time. This increases the likelihood of ending up with cavities or gum disease. When your teeth have large gaps between them, it's easier for food particles to become trapped in between meals. Not only can this lead to embarrassing situations involving spinach in your teeth, but this can also lead to an overgrowth of bacteria and bad breath.
When it comes to your smile, it's important for your teeth to both look good and feel good, and Elk Grove Smile Center is here to be your partner to help you achieve your goals.
