A lot of adults have teeth that are slightly crooked, and with today’s emphasis on having a perfectly straight smile, more people are looking for orthodontic treatment. This is perfectly understandable as a nice straight smile gives the appearance of having healthy teeth that are well cared for. In spite of this most adults do not want to wear braces for months or even years on end. This is why cosmetic orthodontic systems have been developed, and the Hyde Park Dental Clinic is able to offer patients something called Six Month Smiles. This is an orthodontic system especially developed to treat the teeth that are visible when smiling, normally the front six to eight teeth. The average treatment time is typically six months or less, and the braces are designed to be virtually invisible.
This particular system uses clear brackets that are bonded onto the teeth combined with tooth coloured wires that blend in with the natural colour of your teeth. The whole orthodontic system is designed so your cosmetic dentist in Bayswater can fit the braces accurately and quickly so there’s no need to spend hours on end in our dental surgery. Six Month Smiles has been developed to use low forces to move your teeth comfortably and safely, and because treatment is completed within six months it’s typically less expensive than other more traditional orthodontic braces.
Will Six Month Smiles in Bayswater Work For You?
If you have one or two teeth that are sticking out or which are rotated or if some of your front teeth look slightly overcrowded then Six Month Smiles in Bayswater might work well for you. It’s not designed to treat problems with the way your teeth occlude or bite together, and it cannot treat any major orthodontic problems. The best thing to do, if you’re interested in this system is to book an appointment with your dentist at the Hyde Park Dental Clinic to find out if you’re suitable. You need to have a full assessment so your dentist can see exactly how your teeth bite together and to discuss the type of orthodontic issues you’d like to correct. Your dentist will only recommend Six Month Smiles in Bayswater if they think it is right for you. Some people may be reluctant to wear a fixed brace, but it is worth remembering that it will be working constantly to move the teeth, helping to ensure treatment is as fast as possible.
Great for Correcting Teeth That Have Moved After Orthodontic Treatment
This treatment might also be ideal for people who have previously worn braces as children but who have failed to wear a retainer afterwards. This can cause something called orthodontic relapse which is where some of the teeth begin to move to their original positions. It’s worth remembering that all orthodontic treatment requires the use of a retainer afterwards. This can be removable or bonded firmly into position on the back surfaces of your teeth and will help prevent them from moving back into their original positions.
