Not only are straight teeth often considered more attractive, but fixing dental alignment problems can also make your smile healthier overall! For one, brushing and flossing is much easier and more effective when your teeth are evenly spaced. Therefore, your risk for oral health issues, like cavities and gum disease, greatly decreases. At South Arlington Smiles, we offer orthodontic solutions that can help you enjoy an even, uniform smile!
If you’re an adult who wants to straighten your teeth without wearing metal braces, then Invisalign may be perfect for you. Instead of brackets and wires, you’ll wear a series of clear plastic trays that slowly shift your teeth into the desired positions. These aligners are thin, comfortable, and virtually undetectable. You can even remove them when it’s time to eat or clean your teeth. Plus, the average treatment time is only 12 to 18 months, which is significantly shorter than traditional braces.
Even with Invisalign’s short average treatment time, some patients want to achieve results much sooner than that, which is where Six Month Smiles comes in. With this treatment, we place tooth-colored brackets and an archwire on only the teeth that are visible when you smile. As a result, you can get the results you want in as little as half a year.
