Braces are a great way to straighten teeth. They have been designed to reposition the roots and crowns of the teeth for a nice straight smile. There are many reasons why our teeth may develop crooked and it is quite common that these early signs are picked up at a young age and then subsequently treated during our teen years. However, it is also becoming more common practice for adults to have their teeth straightened as well. There isn’t an age limit in getting your teeth straightened and there are many different discrete orthodontic systems on offer to fit in with your lifestyle.
When it comes to straightening teeth there is no one size fits all approach. Everyone’s teeth will be different and the solution to fix them will also be different. Depending on what teeth movement you require, the most suitable brace may vary. If you have problems with the bite (the way the teeth meet), then damon braces may be more suitable for you. If its just a cosmetic issue and there are no problems with your bite, then something like 6 month smiles may be more suitable. Just like the name suggests, the treatment can be completed in typically just 6 months.
If you are looking at correcting more severe problems including the bite, then treatment times will take longer. Fast braces such as 6 month smiles work quicker than other systems as they only correct only the visible parts of the tooth (crowns) and won’t treat the roots.
