When you choose to undertake a cosmetic procedure, it is vital that you know all of the facts surrounding the treatment, the aftercare and of course, the risks.
While it would be foolhardy to compare the risks of a rhinoplasty to those of a brace, it is still important that you are fully aware of the truths surrounding cosmetic dentistry before you have a cosmetic aligner fitted. This will not only ease any anxieties you may have, but will also prepare you mentally for what to expect and alert you on how to identify any potential problems that may arise. Knowledge is power after all!
And, of course, it is imperative to note that not all cosmetic braces are the same from the start. Some are removable, like Invisalign, others are suited to treating more complex dental malocclusions, such as the Inman aligner and a few are purely cosmetic.
At Harbour Dental, our team is specialised in helping suitable patients get that Hollywood worthy smile using 6 Month Smiles in Northern Ireland. As a purely cosmetic brace, this aligner is not suitable for patients with more complex orthodontic issues, but if you want to realign your teeth in record time for a special event this is the brace for you!
So, let’s explore 6 of those all-important facts that surround 6 Month Smiles in Northern Ireland.
Front teeth only!
As mentioned earlier, 6 Month Smiles in Northern Ireland is a cosmetic brace. Therefore, it is only able to realign or straighten the teeth that are located at the front of the mouth.
No orthodontist required
Think needing a brace requires an orthodontist?
Luckily, as this brace is so easy to use, a regular dentist can oversee your treatment from start to finish. At Harbour Dental, our team is trained in how to use this brace, so if you come to us, you know you are getting top-quality dental care.
No root issues
Many people assume that a faster treatment equates to root resorption; that is where the body dissolves the roots of the teeth, which can lead to tooth loss.
This is extremely uncommon and the speed at which these braces work does not increase this risk when compared to other orthodontic procedures.
It is comfortable
As this brace only moves the teeth at the front of the mouth, there is less discomfort associated with the treatment, as the teeth being targeted are smaller and easier to move with gentler techniques.
You will need to see us at Harbour Dental about every 4 weeks, so we can make adjustments to the brace and track your progress. These appointments are faster than those associated with other adult orthodontics, and you will generally require fewer of them.
It does work in 6 months!
This brace moves both the root of the tooth and the crown at the same time, and is, therefore, able to straighten those misaligned teeth in a shorter time span, without causing damage to your jaw, roots or surrounding teeth. Perfect!
