Discreet Orthodontics for Adults

16th February 2015

Adult orthodontics is becoming much more popular, and braces are no longer just for kids. Although there are many compelling reasons for choosing adult orthodontics, such as improved dental health, most people simply just want to look better.

This is perfectly reasonable, especially as extensive studies have been conducted into how other people perceive us during that first meeting, often forming an opinion in just a few short seconds. One study manipulated photographs to show people with straight or crooked teeth. Those with straighter smiles were perceived as being more popular and sportier, although interestingly not any brighter.

Perhaps you had braces as a child or teenager and thought you were done with all that. One of the problems with getting older is that teeth do begin to move, and it is possible those teeth that were originally straightened may have begun trying to migrate back towards their original positions.

Even though it might not be a top priority, it is still worth talking about the beneficial effects to dental health. Straighter teeth are just easier to brush and floss, so provided you take care of them you could be less likely to develop tooth decay and gum disease. In fact orthodontic treatment could be surprisingly cost effective in the longer term, if it saves you from needing expensive and time consuming restorative work further down the line.

But what about actually wearing braces? Aren’t they quite easy for other people to see? Not nearly so much these days, as over the past few years orthodontics has evolved tremendously and today’s modern braces, such as Six Month Smiles in Slough can combine the best of traditional orthodontics with the latest technology.

Six Month Smiles is a fixed brace system, as this can often provide the best results, and is one of the reasons why traditional fixed metal braces are still so widely used for teenagers and children. There is no need to worry that Six Month Smiles braces will be easy to spot, as you will have clear brackets attached to your teeth, and which are then fixed to very thin tooth coloured wires. Unlike removable aligners that can be easy to lose or to forget to wear, Six Month Smiles is working all the time to move your teeth into predetermined positions, and this is one of the reasons why tooth movement can be pretty fast, and the shorter duration required for treatment helps keep it more affordable.

Are you interested in finding out more? It is easy, as Dr Jaswinder Gill offers free consultations at the Moonlight Dental Surgery in Slough. You’ll get to find out how this treatment could help you, and you can see pictures of actual patients who have already successfully straightened their teeth with Six Month Smiles. You will get an honest opinion as to whether treatment is suitable, as well as a complete breakdown of treatment costs. If you have ever inquired about conventional braces, or perhaps invisible aligners, then you will probably be pleasantly surprised. Discreet orthodontics for adults has never been so quick and affordable.
