Orthodontics are often associated with the use of metal brackets and wires which hide the smile and can cause many patients to be self-conscious about the way they look throughout their treatment. However, traditional orthodontia is not the only option available for patients who want to straighten their teeth. Dr. Levenson in Worcester, MA uses several alternative methods for teenagers and adults who want to improve their smile without dealing with the pain, discomfort, and look of conventional metal braces. His practice offers two methods of treatment, which include Six Month Smiles and Invisalign.
Invisalign and Six Month Smiles are two different types of treatment. Patients who have minor misalignment of the front teeth benefit most from Six Month Smiles. This particular treatment uses brackets and wires, but they are tooth-colored for a more discreet appearance. They are also applied on just the front teeth, allowing patients to enjoy effective results in just a few months.
Six Month Smiles are comfortable and allow teenagers and adults to adjust the teeth near the front of the mouth. This treatment is not recommended for patients who have misalignment of the entire dental arch or who need to fix an improper bite. These problems may be better addressed with treatments such as Invisalign, which is also offered through Levenson Smile.
Six Month Smiles provides patients with an alternative to traditional braces, and allows them to improve the cosmetics of their smile. Patients with misaligned teeth that show when they talk and laugh may experience less self-esteem. However, in less than a year, most patients can make a drastic improvement and restore their self-confidence and their ability to smile and laugh again!
