Orthodontics for Adults
Having crooked, gapped, or crowded teeth as an adult can make one feel insecure or uncomfortable, yet unsightly braces can be just as much of an unfavorable situation. Which is why Dr. Ken Cory at Mountain West Smiles offers his patients in the Montrose, CO area the Six Month Braces treatment. With Six Month Braces, older teens and adults can have a straighter, more attractive, smile in a fraction of the time.
How do Six Month Braces Work?
Unlike with traditional braces, which use a metal wire that is tightened monthly, Six Month Braces utilizes a memory wire that will quickly and efficiently shift teeth into alignment. With this constant pressure, teeth will gradually adjust at a comfortable pace. Those with traditional braces often are in a lot of discomfort after the wires have been tightened each month.
Benefits of Six Month Braces
- They are faster – With a name like Six Month Braces, you expect the same great results that you get with traditional braces but in less time. In most cases, people achieve their desired results in about six months, but depending on the severity of misalignment it can take less or more time. To get the best results with traditional braces, it will often take around two years.
- They are clear – Not only do patients who choose the Six Month Braces treatment wear their braces for a shorter amount of time, but they also come in a clear option. With clear brackets and wires, our braces do not stand out against your teeth and are less noticeable than other treatment options.
- They are affordable – Traditional braces can be pricey, especially if you need to wear them for two years or more. Because Six Month Braces take so little time, you won’t have to pay for as many dental visits, adjustments, and check-ups as you would with traditional braces, making them an affordable option for those wanting a more cohesive smile.
Are Six Month Braces Right for You?
The Six Month Braces treatment is best for those who want to straighten and align their front teeth, which show when they smile.
