When we ask our patients to describe their dream smile, most of them mention straighter teeth. The traditional solution to this age-old problem has been a noticeable metal bracket and wire system, but modern orthodontics has a better solution for crooked teeth, a misaligned bite or uneven spacing: Six Month Smiles®️. With this innovative solution to straighten teeth, Dr. Mike Maroon is helping our teen and adult patients achieve their dream smiles in as little as six months.
Six Month Smiles combines the time-tested, and proven, reliability of braces with the convenience of virtually undetectable clear and tooth-colored hardware. This system is designed to work more efficiently than its predecessor by correcting only the teeth that are visible when smiling. This will result in faster treatment times and less noticeable brackets. Our patients often express their excitement over these benefits:
Traditional Braces have been around for years and have successfully assisted in creating millions of beautiful smiles worldwide. Today’s Traditional Braces come in a variety of materials that are more comfortable and better looking while still getting the job done. Metal brackets are smaller and bonded in with a thin adhesive which allows them to be more comfortable and less noticeable. There are also ceramic brackets that look similar to tooth color if you want even more esthetics.
Sometimes, your unique situation may not allow us to use some of the more modern teeth aligning systems like Invisalign®️, ClearCorrect®️, or 6 Month Smiles®️, and Traditional Braces are the only choice to achieve a beautiful smile.
Here’s how they work:
Once your smile is perfect, the traditional braces are complete, brackets are removed and retainers are made. Retainers are necessary so that your teeth can remain in their new position. They can either be clear aligners, or a bonded metal wire on the back side of your upper or lower teeth. We’ll discuss your options with you for your comfort and the best long term success.
