If you need to have your teeth aligned, but you don't have severely crooked teeth, you don't necessarily have to submit to the typical and traditional solution of metal braces worn for a long time, affecting your appearance and hindering your ability to eat the foods you want to. The Gentle Dentist is pleased to offer a method known as Six Month Smiles as our Garden City braces. If you have mild to moderate problems with your teeth alignment, this might be the perfect way for you to have your teeth moved into a more ideal position.
Certainly, there are drawbacks that are closely linked to having crooked teeth. It's more difficult to floss between your teeth effectively. This puts you at greater risk for tooth decay and gum disease. Discomfort is sometimes present as your teeth shift. And today's minor misalignment may become tomorrow's major one, giving you teeth that make you feel less than confident about how you look when you smile. With our Garden City braces, you can have straighter teeth in just six months, as opposed to the timeframe of two to three years that is often the case with traditional orthodontics. That's a long time to walk around wearing braces, and not being able to enjoy sticky and chewy foods.
Here's how our Garden City braces work: we use clear braces that are nearly invisible. So, right off the bat, you don't have to feel self-conscious about how they're going to look on you. That's a huge plus right there. And when you compare Six Month Smiles to typical orthodontic treatment or even Invisalign, what you're going to find is that it's not only just as effective as those options, and quicker than either of them, but it's also more reasonably priced. It can be as much as half the cost of those other methods.
Not everyone will be a good candidate for Six Month Smiles, but call us and schedule a consultation to find out if our Garden City braces are right for you. If it is, you could be sporting a beautiful and straighter set of teeth by this coming fall.
