At Newman Springs Dental Care, we cater to adults who are interested in having a straighter smile. We do adult orthodontics, which varies between either being a candidate for Invisalign or going through Six Month Smile. This basically is for adults who had braces in the past, who necessarily didn't wear their retainers, so they've relapsed, or adults who never had ortho treatment and they want to. They're unhappy with their crooked smile, and they just want to have everything straightened out in such a way they can look better, feel better, and probably even take care of their teeth better.
Invisalign, they are clear retainers that you – goes over your top and your bottom teeth. You have to wear Invisalign close to 22 hours a day for a period of one to two weeks, after which the aligners are changed. Advantage, of course, it's clear and you can take it out, take it in and out.
Talking about Six Month Smile, the Six Month Smile are clear brackets and clear wire that they go over the teeth. What they necessarily do is – it's a short-term orthodontics, just catering to better smile. It necessarily may not change your bite in any way, but maybe it'll help you get a better alignment of your teeth. What Six Month Smile is, obviously it's in there. You can't take it out, so patients tend to be more compliant with Six Month Smile.
Although they say six months, I'd say it runs somewhere between four to nine months. If it is a little bit more severe, it may run sometimes even close to a year, but the beautiful thing is if it is small fixes and a little bit of movement of teeth that you need, you don't have to be in braces for a year or two years. I usually tell my patient in time for their next cleaning appointment, next hygiene appointment, they'd be close to done if they started right now.
Metal braces are so last century! Invisalign clear braces use plastic aligners to move teeth to the desired position using controlled pressure. Compared to other teeth-straightening options, they offer many advantages because they are:
Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign also controls the timing of the force applied to teeth. Each set of clear aligners moves only certain teeth, and the movement is determined by the dental treatment plan designed by Dr. Mitchel Friedman, Dr. Suri, or Dr. Menon. The result is more efficient movement.
Invisalign is a great solution for:
- Crooked or misaligned teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Narrow arches
A majority of adults and adolescents can be treated with Invisalign. Find out if you’re a good candidate by visiting Newman Springs Dental Care today. The average treatment time for adults is only about a year long!
Six Month Smiles
Many adults are afraid or embarrassed to smile because of noticeable gaps, overlapping teeth, or poorly aligned teeth. If you are one of them, you may think the only way to address your problem is by getting traditional metal braces. But why solve one problem with your appearance by creating another?
Our Lincroft, NJ dental office, have orthodontics solution that will fit your lifestyle and your budget beautifully: Six Month Smiles.
This short-term orthodontic treatment for adults uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to align the teeth that are visible when you smile.
Six Month Smiles is more affordable than traditional orthodontics, usually takes only about six months, and is a barely noticeable cosmetic dentistry option that our patients love! Here are some other advantages of Six Month Smiles compared to traditional orthodontics:
- Since the technique is gentle, focusing only on the appearance of your smile, the whole process is virtually painless.
- Your checkups and appointments are brief, and you only have to wear the braces for a fraction of the time of traditional orthodontic options. After that, a retainer helps maintain the smile you have fallen in love with.
