What are Six Month Braces?

You may be old school and think all braces are the train track variety of yesteryear only worn by children and teenagers. But braces, like everything else, have advanced with modern technology, and now adults who missed out in their teens are wearing braces. Six Month Smile utilise clear braces that are attached to your teeth with a tooth coloured wire to straighten gently or align teeth in an average time of just six months. They are so discreet it will not be immediately apparent you are wearing braces.

Having Six Month Braces vs. Alternative Braces

According to many patients, Six Month Braces are known for being more comfortable than conventional braces. However, both pain and comfort are subjective.  One patient will hardly notice they are wearing braces whereas another will feel the discomfort and irritation of something alien in their mouth for a few weeks.

Nobody can promise you that getting straight teeth is going to be entirely pain-free. But the Six Month Braces are made of very light wires, making the treatment more comfortable than conventional braces. The emphasis is on low force rather than tightening, to get the teeth moving.  

Invisalign or Six Month Braces?

There are also quite a lot of cases that can be treated with Invisalign, a popular alternative to Six Month Braces. While Invisalign are discreet, clear, molded brace that fit over the teeth, Six Month Braces involves fixed braces, so you don’t have to worry about taking them in and out, every time you eat or drink. Both methods are discreet so not everyone will notice you are wearing braces but Invisalign can take longer than Six Month Braces.
