If you think about braces, you probably picture an awkward teenager with a mouth full of metal wires and brackets. If you missed the opportunity to have braces as a teen, you might feel like you must simply resign yourself to living the rest of your life with misaligned teeth.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
At our Arlington, TX dental practice, we offer orthodontics that fit in with busy adult lifestyles. Regardless of your age, you are never too old to get straight teeth.
Why Get Braces as an Adult?
The main reason to get braces as an adult is that straight teeth tend to be healthier. Having teeth that are properly aligned makes it easier to brush and floss properly. Crooked teeth tend to have many nooks and crannies that can be hard to reach with a brush, making you more susceptible to developing dental decay as well as gum disease.
Another reason to get braces as an adult is because you can do so discreetly.
What Is Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles is a great orthodontic option for busy adults who don’t want the look of traditional braces. With Six Month Smiles, clear orthodontic technology is used, so most people won’t even notice you are wearing braces. There is more good news: With Six Month Smiles’ express orthodontic technology, you can have straight teeth in a matter of months instead of a matter of years as with traditional braces.
Am I a Good Candidate for Six Month Smiles?
If you need to correct misaligned, gapped, or crowded teeth, you might be an ideal candidate for Six Month Smiles. Patients who require a jaw realignment, however, might need to opt for traditional orthodontics.
