Freedom from Traditional Braces
August 13th, 2012 by Dr. Watson

This summer, start a new path toward straighter teeth! Traditional braces with their brackets and wires and colored bands can be both uncomfortable and unsightly. If you’ve always wanted a more beautiful smile but were scared away by the thought of braces that made you look like a teenager, now is the time to start that change. Make a pledge to ensure your own well-being is a priority and schedule a consultation with Dr. Watson for Six Month Smiles.

Six Month Smiles is a new way of wearing traditional braces without the traditional look. There are two main ways this treatment is different from any other you have considered trying: the brackets and wires are nearly invisible and the process only takes an average of six months.

After a consultation with Dr. Watson, we will figure out how long your particular experience will take, but the average treatment time is only six months, which is much shorter than traditional braces. It may seem drastic to move teeth that fast, but rest assured that we have gone to special training to make sure that your Six Month Smiles process is as safe as possible.

Some of the key ingredients in our braces treatment are the use of special nickel titanium wires, Lucid-Lok™ clear brackets and Chameleon™ tooth-colored wires, which are barely visible. We combine these with special techniques to concentrate on the cosmetic look of your teeth, rather than your bite, and work to straighten the teeth most visible when you smile.

Although Six Month Smiles may not be for every patient, most adults over the age of 15 qualify for this treatment, especially if you’re not looking for major alterations to your bite. It poses no more risk of damage to your teeth, roots or gums than traditional braces and can often be cheaper!
