Maybe the aesthetics of crooked teeth don’t bother you, but unfortunately, crooked teeth create a much bigger problem. When your teeth overlap, are crowded, or are twisted, it can be difficult to brush and floss them properly because there are some areas that simply can’t be reached. As plaque builds on your teeth, it hardens into tartar in these areas your toothbrush misses. In time, the result is cavities and gum disease.
The problems don’t stop there. Crooked teeth also affect the shape of your bite in such a way that your jaws don’t come together exactly the way they are supposed to. This causes extra pressure on your teeth that they were never designed to handle. As you age, this can result in erosion, fractures, jaw pain, gum disease and eventually lost teeth.
Do you want your teeth to be straighter? Maybe you missed out on orthodontic care when you were a child, or maybe your teeth have slowly drifted back out of their ideal alignment. You’re probably aware that crooked teeth are more than just an aesthetic problem, but the idea of years of metal braces isn’t exactly appealing.
What if you could have beautiful, straight teeth without all the hassle?
We are pleased to offer Six Month Smiles Braces - quick braces - to our patients who need to have their teeth straightened. This system uses clear brackets to move your teeth into their correct positions gently and comfortably, and on average, the process only takes about six months. Costs range from $2900 and up depending on the complexity of your case. Most dental benefit plans or insurances cover part of the cost and we offer flexible payment plans as well.
Clearly, straight teeth are important, but adults often balk at the idea of getting braces. Aesthetics are important, and we understand that busy professionals, especially those who meet with clients or customers, want to look their best at all times.
Metal braces are okay for kids, but not for adults who want to maintain a mature, professional image. Six Month Smiles uses clear plastic braces on just the front teeth to correct a number of common orthodontic issues. Check out the picture above of a patient who came to see us from Stamford to straighten her teeth before her wedding. Can you tell she is wearing braces?
The braces are virtually invisible and are very comfortable to wear. While Six Month Smiles Braces can give you incredible results in a short amount of time, the system works by using new technology and advances in understanding of orthodontic principles to gently move your teeth, so you don’t have to worry about the system putting too much pressure on your teeth or damaging your teeth, roots, or gums. Every Six Month Smiles Braces treatment plan also includes complimentary take-home teeth whitening to let your teeth really shine.
The best way to find out if Six Month Smiles is appropriate for you is to talk to Dr. Singh in person.
