Fremont area residents learn about Six Month Smiles orthodontics
Imperfections of the smile, including misaligned teeth, can make men and women feel self-conscious when they laugh or talk with others. They may experience embarrassment especially if there are large gaps between the teeth. However, the idea of traditional braces is often a turn-off for patients. Years of hiding teeth behind brackets and wires is not the most desirable situation to improve the smile. Thankfully, with continued advances in orthodontia, patients can now enhance their smiles with a treatment known as Six Month Smiles.
Six Month Smiles is a revolutionary treatment that uses brackets and wires to reposition teeth in the same manner as traditional braces. Fortunately, treatment time is much shorter. Six Month Smiles is extremely beneficial for patients with mild to moderate misalignment of the teeth near the front of the mouth. These teeth, sometimes referred to as the “social six,” are easily repositioned in a shorter period of time for cosmetic purposes. The brackets quickly move the teeth for faster treatment times than traditional braces.
Dr. Munira Lokhandwala of the Fremont area is excited to offer Six Month Smiles as not only a faster option compared to conventional orthodontia but also an affordable one. Patients avoid referrals to specialists such as orthodontists who they don’t already know and trust as they do their own dentist at StarBrite Dental.
Most patients with mild malocclusion can benefit from Six Month Smiles. The process starts with an evaluation and then the placement of brackets and wires. Patients visit their dentist regularly for follow-ups to monitor the changes to the smile. Once treatment is complete, the braces are removed and patients use a retainer to maintain the results. The retainer is worn every night to keep the new smile in place!
