As well as additional alignment and bite issues that can cause discomfort and embarrassment with the look of your smile. As a short term orthodontic treatment, it usually takes an average of six months, but keep in mind that times may vary depending on your individual circumstances.
When considering whether Six Month Smile is for you, the first step is to have a professional consultation with your dentist or orthodontist where you will have a full examination of your gums, mouth and teeth to see if this is the right choice for you. During the examination you will have x-rays, photos and model impressions taken of your teeth to determine if you are a good candidate.
Once you know you are a candidate, these models will be used to determine the best way to achieve your desired look through placement of the brackets on your teeth. Then you will have the brackets placed on your teeth and bonded you will have a customized tray on to your teeth to be sure the brackets are placed properly. Then the brackets will be secured using a high intensity light once they are secure, you will have the wires put on to be sure the teeth move as planned.
As with any new treatment, you may feel a tightening or a bit of discomfort when you first get your six month smile, but it won’t last.
Once you have them on, you will have regular visits about every four weeks for about fifteen minutes each time so your dentist can check placement and make adjustments as needed.
Caring For Your Teeth With Brackets
While it’s always important to take care of your teeth and gums, you will want to take some extra care while you have your braces. It’s common for food to get stuck in your brackets but it’s important to remove it so you can maintain the healthiest teeth and avoid damage to the enamel.
Brushing after meals and the use of a water pic can help to make the process a simple one.
Be aware of any foods that can damage brackets such as chewy or sticky candies and gum. You also want to stay away from foods that are hard such as apples, granola bars and carrots. You’ll want to enjoy hard foods by cutting them into small pieces so they don’t loosen or damage the brackets.
How Long Does It Take?
That is the question that most people ask and to be honest, there is no definite answer but in average it takes six months. For some it can take eight months or even more but for others it can take as little as four months to straighten your teeth, It really depends on where your starting point is. Whatever that is for you, it is still a faster option and will have you looking better than ever.
