Everybody wants a perfect smile and not just the pearly white kind; we all want straight teeth without any gaps and gums that look healthy. That said; so many people still refrain from taking action to achieve the smile that they’ve always wanted and dreamed of.
Thousands of people in Ireland are self-conscious because of how their teeth look, but still don’t visit their dentist to see what can be done to change and improve their situation.
Up until now, one of the key things that have held a lot of people back from correcting their issues by getting braces is how long they would potentially have to wear them. Traditionally, braces would have to be worn for at least two years. However, there are now braces which can be worn for 6 months. We are here to tell you all about 6 month braces and how they work.
What are 6 months braces?
Still a relatively new concept, 6 month braces are short-term braces that can address particular issues quickly and with minimal discomfort. The pressure of these short term braces remains constant like traditional braces but it is much gentler.
As 6 month braces focus only on certain teeth, they are much easier on the roots and gums. And because they are so easy to clean, the risk of infections and cavities is minimised too.
Can anyone wear 6 month braces?
Unfortunately, 6 month braces aren’t suitable for everyone. They are most effective at correcting issues with the front 6 to 8 teeth in the top and bottom of your mouth, as well as any minor crowding issues.
Those who have over-bite or other bite issues or more sever crowding problems will not be suitable for 6 month braces.
How can they work so quickly?
6 month braces provide results quickly as they are designed to only target a certain number and selection of teeth. They are focused only on aligning specific teeth, meaning the pressure is more dedicated.
The innovative design of 6 month braces also has a key role to play. They are typically made from nickel titanium, which offers a more sustained level of pressure.
Are they visible?
Not only do 6 month braces produce noticeable results much faster than traditional braces but they are much less noticeable too. They consist of clear brackets and elastics and tooth-coloured wires which ensure they look much more natural. In fact, you are likely to encounter people wearing 6 months braces everyday and don’t even realise it!
There may be cases where they will need to be cemented onto the front of the teeth in which case they will be more visible, however, they are still a more aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional braces.
How much are 6 month braces?
Many assume that the fast and aesthetic results offered by 6 month braces makes them an incredibly expensive option. We’re here to tell you that they’re actually very affordable considering their effectiveness and benefits.
Costing just €1,400 for one jaw and €2,400 for both jaws, you’ll agree that they’re small prices to pay for a quick, innovative and effective orthodontic treatment.
6 month braces really do work and can produce amazing results. Less discomfort, great results in just 6 months, hardly noticeable, easy to clean and highly affordable – achieving the perfect smile just got a whole lot easier. Call us today for more info.
