There are many quick fix orthodontic treatments available, like Six Month Smiles, but not all of them can give the best overall result, or a healthy long term smile. It’s true to say that tooth straightening is most effective with braces that are fixed to the teeth – they have more control on how the teeth move, and where the roots of the teeth end up. To be stable, teeth must be in a good position and be at the right angle (teeth that lean too far forwards are more likely to be pushed backwards over time). Getting that good position can take time so isn’t it worth doing well?
If the appearance of braces is your stumbling block to having your teeth straightened, there are more cosmetic options available – there are clear braces, and even completely invisible braces that are fitted on the inside surface of the teeth.
If you are worried about pain and soreness, be assured that although you will have some minor discomfort initially, it quickly settles and you get used to the feeling of having braces within a few weeks.
And you can still have results quickly – it doesn’t always take a year or more. Devices such as AcceleDent (a vibrating mouth piece that gently ‘jiggles’ the teeth) have been proven to reduce treatment time by 30-50%. This device could reduce your treatment time by 9-12 months and is very effective with all types of brace treatment.
The investment in your smile doesn’t have to cost the earth either. We offer interest free payment plans and staged payments, allowing you to spread the costs over the course of your treatment so it’s more manageable for you.
