at Dental Associates of Corona, know of one such option, however – Six Month Smiles. These quick and clear braces are not any ordinary orthodontic treatment. As the name suggests, the inconspicuous wires and brackets generally only require a six month commitment.

Reasons for Braces

Correcting misaligned teeth is not just a physical advantage. There are actually multiple functional purposes for having upper and lower teeth that fit together well. If your pearly whites are crooked or overcrowded, how can you hope to properly brush and floss them? When teeth are so close together or they overlap on one another, there are too many potential hiding places for bacteria and food debris (and the plaque they create) to collect and fester. With a well aligned bite, oral hygiene becomes a breeze. Dental floss glides in and out freely. Malocclusion can also cause worn-down teeth and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder.

Details on Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles are an affordable, dependable, and expedient alternative to traditional metal orthodontics. Lucid-lok clear brackets and Chameleon tooth colored wires, are so clear, it’s likely that your friends and family won’t even realize that you’re wearing braces, unless you tell them. As the name suggests, treatment time is generally about half a year (six months). Each case is different, so you should be prepared for the possibility that your needs might require a longer time with the Six Month Smile system. There’s also the possibility that your particular straightening needs might not be the right fit for this type of orthodontic treatment.
