Using orthodontic treatment, we offer our Jacksonville patients the chance to have a stunning smile and an attractive appearance. On a deeper level, we also help our patients by preventing a variety of dental health problems through the use of braces. Failure to get treated with braces in due time can lead to dental problems like tooth decay, chewing and digestive troubles, gum disease, and many other problems related to your teeth.
We know the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of traditional braces might be metal mouth. That is why we are pleased to inform you that the field of orthodontics has changed. You now have the option of wearing braces made of metal, ceramic or plastic. Some of these parts are removable while the rest are brackets which have to be bonded to the teeth. You also have the option of choosing clear or metallic color brackets, as well as the color of the wire which holds those brackets in place.
Six Month Braces
An excellent example of this new generation of orthodontic treatment is the power braces Six Month Braces technique. Using the latest technology combined with time tested orthodontic techniques, Six-Month Braces move your teeth quickly and safely. Just as the name implies, the treatment is completed in approximately six months to while some cases can be completed in as little as 3 months, others might take up to nine months, but most cases are completed in a six month time frame.
The Six-Month Braces technique has its similarities to porcelain veneers, in that the back teeth that are not visible when smiling are not moved.. we focus on only the teeth visible when smiling bonding and other cosmetic dentistry procedures. But instead of preparing the teeth and bonding porcelain veneers to them, the teeth are moved orthodontically to their best position. The key ingredient in this treatment is the use of hi-tech archwires, which place a light force on the teeth to gently move them to the desired position.
Many people think that the braces are just tightened to get the teeth moving. This will actually slow down tooth movement. To reiterate, the Six-Month Braces technique is a low force technique. When it comes to the levels of pain, most of our patients state that they do not feel pain. The key to success of the power braces Six-Month Braces technique is the flexibility and low forces of the archwire.
