If you are looking to straighten your teeth, you should be aware that the process can be faster than ever, thanks to innovations like Six Month Smiles. In addition, Invisalign has recently introduced innovations that can give results in half the time.

The shorter treatment time is appealing to many people. And there’s more: having faster braces doesn’t just mean your smile will be ready faster. It means that you’ll enjoy several other benefits, too.

Benefits of Faster Braces | Anchorage

Better Oral Health

Overall, people who get their teeth straightened have a lower risk of gum disease. That’s because straight teeth are easier to clean and can stay healthier.

But during the process of straightening teeth with aligners or braces, people can be at an increased risk of cavities and gum disease. That’s because teeth are harder to clean when they have braces. Although it’s less, there’s also an increased risk with aligners–although you can clean your teeth normally, you have to clean them more often and more thoroughly. Not everyone follows the guidelines.

More Convenience

A shorter course of braces or aligners doesn’t just mean less time in braces, it means less time in the dentist’s office. That’s partly because you’re cutting the treatment time in half, so there are fewer return visits to the dentist.

But it’s also partly because faster braces are also often more efficient. With Six Month Smiles, developers streamlined the process of a tightening visit so they are shorter than ever. You’ll be delighted with how quickly we can get you in and out for your regular appointments.

Less Expense

In some cases, faster braces not only get you your results faster, but cheaper as well. Less time in the dentist’s office also means you’re taking less of the dentist’s time. That gives us the ability to charge you less. It’s like having a negative cost for expedited shipping!

Are Faster Braces Right for You?

Faster braces are not for everyone. Six Month Smiles, for example, focuses just on cosmetic tooth movements. It might not be appropriate for people who need bite changes. Invisalign isn’t as good as traditional braces at making some types of movements. We would need to evaluate you to see if you meet the criteria for either treatment.
