There are two good options available on the market today for adults who desire straighter and more attractive teeth but do not want to put up with wearing metal braces for a long time: Six Month Smiles and Invisalign. They both offer a good alternative to traditional braces.
But how do you decide which system is right for you?
The main difference between Six Month Smiles and Invisalign is that Six Month Smiles incorporates a traditional bracket and elastic system into its design that allows for more powerful tooth movement. Besides that Invisalign uses a series of removable aligners to move teeth into the right place while Six Month Smiles uses a fixed bracket system that remains in place for the duration of dental treatment. Both options offer a more aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional braces as neither of these systems involves the unsightly metal used in traditional braces.
If you are an adult with crooked teeth but do not want to wear traditional braces to achieve straighter teeth, schedule a consultation with Dr. Michael Ofir at Avalon Dental Center.
Dr Michael Ofir has many years of experience with both the Invisalign® and the Six Month Smiles® adult braces.
