How are Six-Month Braces different than traditional braces?
It is not magic, but rather it is creative science. It is accomplished with traditional orthodontic treatment, but the majority of the tooth movement is restricted to the front teeth. The ‘bite’ classification is not changed and this is why it is called ‘Short Term Orthodontics’. In addition, the technology is so far advanced that we have the luxury of offering ‘clear’ brackets that are glued onto the teeth. In those brackets we place a ‘tooth-colored wire’. Adults who have to go about their daily lives without feeling self-conscious, accept much better this combination of clear bracket and tooth-colored wire.
