Braces are something people often associate with children or teenagers. It is easy to forget that these are not supposed to be torture devices but ways to help straighten teeth and give you a healthier smile in the long term. With Six Month Braces in Essex you get the benefits of straighter teeth but without having to wait as long!
What are six month braces?
Six month braces are wires that are placed on the teeth. They are coloured to match the teeth so that they blend in a bit more, so people wearing them can feel a little less self conscious while still getting the full benefit of straighter teeth and work more effectively than other forms of metal or trays.
How does it work?
There was a time when news took weeks to reach one country to another. Now this can be done with a quick email in a matter of seconds. Likewise the nickel titanium system used in six month braces is more advanced than previous systems.
Also because the system focuses on straightening the more prominent teeth it can work a lot faster.
Is the procedure painful?
In simple terms because the braces are on for a shorter period of time there is less pain. Equally less pressure is exerted when applying six month braces, so there is less physical force on the mouth and therefore less pain.
There may be a little discomfort at first but most cosmetic dentists can prescribe or recommend pain relief to help with that.
What about cost? Given it uses the latest technology it must be more expensive.
Again this does not necessarily have to be the case. One of the costs involved with braces is the maintenance required to keep them secure. Because you wear six month braces for less time you do not spend as long getting them repaired and therefore spend less money!
