Get a Beautiful, Healthy Smile with Six Month Braces
At Madison Smile Solutions, we use the Powerprox Six Month Braces® technique to give you the great smile you’ve always wanted.
This technique uses the latest in orthodontic materials and technologies, lick special nickel titanium wires and clear/tooth-colored materials to move your teeth quickly and safely. In some cases, special elastics and springs can be used to help move the teeth, too.
How Six Month Braces Work
Six months is a lot faster than the year or more that traditional braces required to move your teeth into place. This has led many people to assume that this technique simply involves “tightening” the braces more often.
The truth, however, is that excessive tightening would just hinder the process.
Your teeth have something called the periodontal ligament, and if it is hit with enough force to bruise it, your teeth from moving until it heals. It’s a defense mechanism against trauma. It’s simply trying to protect your teeth from potential damage.
This technique is a way to get around that. The special wires can continuously move your teeth without triggering this mechanism. It’s this low controlled force that makes it possible to see some great results.
Who Is It For?
Six month braces are a great option for people who are experiencing overly crowded or spaced teeth, or are dealing with under or overbites. Crooked teeth can also be corrected this way, which means that it can help you speak, bite, and chew more comfortably.
Straightening your teeth also makes them easier to clean and maintain, so this treatment can also contribute to your overall dental health.
Start Seeing Results
The Powerprox Six Month Braces have been used by thousands of patients, and the technique is well tested and proven to be safe and effective. And, since the overall length of the treatment is shorter than traditional braces, you will be able to save more money in the long run.
However, despite the name, that doesn’t mean this treatment takes exactly six months in every case. Every patient is different, and the actual time will depend on your situation. Six months is a pretty accurate estimate, but your treatment may finish even earlier or take a little longer.
