Six Month Smiles in Bangor, ME
Many patients come to our practice looking for a solution for their misaligned teeth. While misaligned teeth in the front are primarily a cosmetic issue, the health of those teeth can also be affected. Most patients, however, think that straightening their teeth means a year or more of braces, which often aren’t practical for professionals. We’ve got a better solution – Six Month Smiles.
If you’ve ever thought about straightening your smile, adult orthodontics may be just the option you’ve been looking for. The doctors at Maine Family Dental use braces to gently straighten your teeth with a system that is designed especially for adults. These braces work quickly and effectively so that your smile is improved in a short amount of time. Braces are a great treatment option that will improve the appearance and the health of your smile.
Many adults have never considered using orthodontics to change the aesthetics of their smile because they’re concerned about having to wear metal braces for a number of years. Many times, only the front teeth need aligning, and our system uses brackets that are the same color as your teeth so that they are hardly noticeable. Using minimal time to reposition your smile is very effective for busy adults.
Why Straighten My Smile?
Six month braces offer a number of benefits other than just improving the aesthetics and appearance of your smile. Teeth that are crowded and overlap can make it challenging for you to brush and floss properly. Excess plaque and tartar can cause gum disease and build-up of bacteria that may lead to cavities or more severe decay.
Adult orthodontics can also close gaps and spaces between teeth, which not only improves your smile, but also helps to better align your bite. When you have gaps between your teeth, you’re more likely to get food trapped in between them, which leads to increased plaque build-up.
Am I a Candidate for Six Month Braces?
The team at Maine Family Dental is happy to meet with you to discuss your concerns and goals for your smile. Six month braces are specifically designed for adult patients, and they work well for those who may only need minimal adjustments to their smile.
The Six Month Smiles system is designed for the teeth that show when you smile. It’s not intended to treat more moderate to severe misalignments or issues that involve your back teeth. If you struggle with severe bite or jaw misalignment, you may not be the right candidate for these services, but there are other options that Dr. Buxton will go over with you at your free consultation. A straighter and healthier smile is just a phone call away!
