The case below took only 5 months.
Q: Can braces really be done or finished in 6 months? How is this possible?
A: Dr. Gaffey utilizes the latest techniques and technology to move your teeth quickly and safely. It's important to note that Six Month Smiles? Adult Braces are not intended to be a substitute for comprehensive orthodontic treatment. 6 Month Braces are intended to straighten the teeth that show in your smile. This approach may not address bite discrepancies. Six Month Smiles? is a technique aimed at treating the cosmetic zone in ADULT smiles.
Some complex cases may need referral to an orthodontist, but many cases can be achieved in 6 months like the one below.
Q: How do 6 Month Braces compare to "Invisible Braces" that I've seen advertised on TV that use clear plastic trays?
A: "Invisible plastic braces" uses a series of clear hard plastic trays to move the teeth. 6 Month Braces uses nearly invisible brackets and wires. So, while 6 Month Braces are a bit more visible, they work MUCH faster and give Dr. Gaffey far more control over the results. Also, 6 Month Braces don't require you to remember to do anything. The "Invisible braces" on TV require you to constantly put a series of trays in (and then take them out for eating). 6 Month Braces are on "auto-pilot." All you have to do is see Dr. Gaffey once a month for about 6 months.
Q: How will I look with these braces?
A: 6 Month Braces are virtually invisible. Dr. Gaffey uses tooth-colored brackets. Even the wires are white.
Q: Does the 6 Month Braces Technique damage the teeth, roots, or gums in any way? I've heard that moving teeth can cause root damage.
A: The Six Month Smiles? Technique uses light force with short treatment duration to safely move the teeth. There is no evidence that root damage or "resorption" is any more likely than with traditional braces, which is VERY rare.
Q: Do 6 Month Braces cost more than regular braces?
A: 6 Month Braces may be less expensive than traditional braces.
Q: Do I have to wear a retainer?
A: Yes, as with any orthodontic procedure a retainer is necessary. This is especially true for adult orthodontic treatment. For
convenience, we recommend a permanent, bonded retainer be used. This way you don't even have to think about it, and nobody can see it.
Q: Are 6 Month Braces more painful than regular braces?
A: No. The Six Month Smiles? Technique uses LIGHT force to move the teeth gently and comfortably. Like with traditional dental braces, some patients may experience some temporary discomfort. For those occasions Panadol or Nurofen work well. However, most patients tell us they just feel a "tightness."
Q: Why not just get veneers done instead?
A: Dr Gaffey says, "While veneers can provide amazing results, 6 Month Braces offer a more conservative and far less expensive solution to a crooked smile. Veneers are a wonderful way to improve the shape and color of teeth and continue to be an excellent choice for some cases. However, 6 Month Braces, along with Tooth Whitening, provide beautiful results without having to make irreversible changes to your natural teeth. Call us today for a consultation, and we can discuss which is best for you."
