Crooked Teeth and Oral Health

While you are very aware of the effect crooked teeth have on your confidence, you may not realize the impact it has on your oral health. Crooked teeth are harder to keep clean because they overlap, and this increases your risk of developing gum disease and tooth decay.

A misaligned bite can also contribute to a jaw joint disorder known as temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMD. This condition causes painful headaches, problems with your jaw locking open or closed, and chronic neck, shoulder, and facial pain. Straightening your teeth benefits your self-esteem and your oral health.

How can 6-Month Smiles Help?

6-Month Smiles utilizes tooth colored brackets and wires to align your sightline, or front 6 teeth. By using clear brackets, your orthodontic treatment is effective, yet hardly noticeable. Because treatment focuses mainly on your sight line, it can typically be completed in a shorter amount of time, which is why it’s called 6-Month Smiles.

Who is a Good Candidate for 6-Month Smiles?

Adults who have had orthodontic treatment in the past that has relapsed can benefit from it.
