Pomona, NY (PRWEB) August 23, 2013
Pomona, NY dentist Dr. Robert Tracey is pleased to add Six Month Smiles to the orthodontics services at General & Laser Assisted Dentistry (GLAD). Six Month Smiles employs clear brackets and thin wires to expedite patients’ teeth straightening results without using heavy duty orthodontics treatments that can take two to three years to complete.
Six Month Smiles and traditional braces differ primarily in their end objectives. Unlike traditional braces, Six Month Smiles does not endeavor to fix the patient’s bite. Instead, this new orthodontics treatment focuses solely on improving the appearance of the visible teeth exposed when the patient smiles. Both treatments employ a similar method to achieve teeth straightening, using a series of brackets and wires that are gradually tightened as the treatment progresses. However, the brackets and wires in Six Month Smiles are tooth-colored and much less conspicuous than regular braces.
Six Month Smiles does not move teeth any quicker than traditional braces, but because the treatment targets only certain teeth, the desired teeth straightening results can be achieved in less time. Since the goal is not to correct the patient’s entire mouth, the treatment stops as soon as the front teeth straighten. Six Month Smiles often appeals to adult patients who do not want to wear traditional metal braces and only wish to resolve cosmetic concerns like crooked teeth and spaces.
