Will my teeth stay straight after Six Month Smiles treatment?

The British Dental Journal estimates that 75% of us could benefit from better tooth alignment. That’s most of us! Not only can having your teeth straightened give you a more attractive smile, but also in the case of aligning overlapping teeth, prevent you from having tooth surfaces that cannot be reached with your toothbrush. This is a situation that often leads to food getting trapped in the teeth and consequently tooth decay or gum disease.

Of course, once you’ve had the orthodontic treatment, you’ll no doubt want your teeth to remain in their new attractive position. Today we going to explain how you can stop your teeth from moving out of alignment again.

If it’s just your front teeth which are suffering from mild alignment problems, as is often the case, our Stourbridge dentist will no doubt recommend 6 Months Smiles braces as a solution. This is good news for you because 6 Months Smiles braces can give you an improved smile in just 4 to 6 months, with minimal hassle and they are very discreet set up, so few people will even notice you’re wearing braces. Then, once your treatment is over and the braces have been removed, you will be fitted with a retainer to maintain your new beautiful smile.

About Six Months Smiles

The pioneering Six Months Smiles braces were first developed 20 years ago in the USA, by Dr Swain, who realised that people were being put off accepting orthodontic treatment because of the length of the treatment period involved. He looked into different ways of reducing the amount of time that could be spent wearing braces and Six Months Smiles braces were born.

Six Months Smiles braces are fitted by means of translucent brackets, that are bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth. A wire is threaded through the brackets to provide a light tension, which will bring your teeth into a better alignment. You will visit your dentist here in Stourbridge a few times during your treatment to ensure that the journey of your teeth continues in a stress free manner.
