Texas area patients ask, “Does it hurt to have 6 Month Smiles braces?”
Texas patients dealing with an imperfect smile caused by poor alignment of the teeth are often turned off at the idea of having traditional braces. Covering the teeth with metal brackets and wires is often the last thing patients want to do. However, with the continued improvement in orthodontic care, patients can now achieve the same results with a less noticeable option called 6 Month Smiles braces.
What are 6 Month Smiles braces?
The 6 Month Smiles braces are similar to traditional braces in the sense that brackets and wires are used. However, these are clear or tooth-colored and much less noticeable than traditional metal orthodontics. They work so fast that most patients only have them on for a few months – instead of years with conventional braces.
Does it hurt to use 6 Month Smiles braces?
While this method of realignment is fast, it is not painful. Patients experience a little soreness when their wires are adjusted, but this is minor.
Who is a candidate for 6 Month Smiles?
The best candidates for orthodontic treatments such as 6 Month Smiles are patients who have mild misalignment of the anterior teeth. These teeth are most noticeable when patients are speaking, laughing, or smiling. Those who have concerns about their bite alignment or severe malocclusion may still be better suited for traditional means of orthodontic work. A consultation visit and evaluation can help patients determine this.
