If your teeth suffer from being crooked, wonky or uneven, you may be considering an orthodontic option to straighten them. When it comes to tooth correction with regards to straightness, braces are the most traditional methods to do so. One of the most new and exciting systems to come from the USA is called 6 Month braces.
They are named 6 month smiles as some cases can be completed in as short as 6 months time. This is because how the brace fundamentally works is different to traditional system. Typically traditional braces can take 18-24 months to be completed. This is because they are treating both the crowns and roots of the teeth. The main difference between these systems and the 6 Month Smiles system is the fact that they only correct the visible parts of the teeth (crowns) and won’t treat the roots.
In some cases there may not be a need to have the roots corrected, and this will therefore make you eligible for 6 month smiles. If you are having bite problems, then you may need the roots to be corrected also and another system may be more suitable for you.
