Fast Track Your Smile At Holly Dental Care
Welcome back to our oral health and hygiene blog!
We know that, for the families of Holly, Michigan, life can get busy this time of year.
That’s why, here at Holly Dental Care, we try to make your dental solutions convenient and easy for the whole family.
At our North Saginaw Street office, our family dental services include preventive dentistry, children’s dentistry, sedation dentistry, gum disease treatment, root canals, restorations, teeth whitening, veneers, dental implants, NTI migraine management, and adult orthodontics.
It is the latter that we want to explore further today.
Many of our grown up patients cringe when the talk turns to braces.
Even if they could benefit from orthodontic treatment, they have a certain horrific picture in their minds that is hard to dispel. They envision a scenario that usually involves lots of steel, trapped food, special tools, cruel nicknames, and so forth. And, in their minds, the torture goes on for an eternity.
Maybe you can relate.
Still, the truth is that crowded, crooked teeth are not just a problem for the young, and that can be a real problem for you once you are in the professional world.
Your smile, and your willingness to share it, can actually shape who you become and what you accomplish in life.
If you are embarrassed about certain aspects of your smile, you might hide it away giving off the presumably false impression that you are too serious, unfriendly, rude, and generally unapproachable.
The flip side is that if you have a smile you are not ashamed to flash, you will be less self-conscious and a whole lot more confident in yourself and your abilities.
This will help open doors (that you might have otherwise been shut out of) for you both professionally and socially.
Obviously, we would all want to be perceived as friendly, confident, and attractive individuals.
However, a conventional long-term orthodontic plan can take up to two years, sometimes longer to complete.
And, at a certain point in life we just don’t have the time or patience to commit to an inconvenient, uncomfortable, noticeably awkward process like braces.
That’s why, at Holly dental Care, we have an alternative treatment method to improving your smile, one that is safe, effective, discreet, and super-fast.
Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles is a new way of approaching orthodontic treatment for adults.
First of all, as the name implies, with this method you won’t be in braces for two years.
This is because we won’t be addressing any major bite issues like we would in children. Usually, if you’ve made it this far, your bite functionality is just fine.
Still, you may be asking how we can possibly straighten out the situation in your mouth in as little as six months?
We focus on applying targeted force, that’s how.
In other words, the Six Month Smiles system zeroes in only on your teeth that show when you smile, we won’t invest any time and effort on the teeth that don’t show.
The system is something of a hybrid in that it combines the effectiveness of traditional metal braces with the aesthetically pleasing aspects of clear aligners.
When you opt for Six Month Smiles, we install nearly invisible brackets and tooth-colored wires to reposition your front teeth comfortably and gently over a 3-9 month period.
You will only need to visit us a few times for adjustments, and you will be good to go.
That doesn’t sound so bad, does it?
Six Month Smiles is the perfect solution for busy adults with crooked, crowded, or gapped front teeth but with a basically good bite in the back.
