Orthodontic Services: Six Month Smiles™ vs. Invisalign™

Young smiling man holding invisalign braces over white background Six Month Smiles™ is a reliable option for patients who are considering dental orthodontics. It is an advanced variety that doesn’t use traditional metal appliances to give patients the straight teeth they want in less than six months. However, Invisalign™ is another popular option that provides similar results but may take longer, though it utilizes discreet trays instead of brackets and wires. So which one should you choose? Dr. Matthew Huff of Precision Dentistry and Implants of Kerrville, TX, can walk you through these two types of orthodontic services to better understand how each of them works and select the best one for your smile!

Comparing Six Month Smiles™ to Invisalign™ Orthodontics

One of the most significant benefits of both Six Month Smiles™ and Invisalign™ orthodontics is their ability to provide discreet treatment options. Both systems are clear or nearly transparent and offer few issues with comfort compared to traditional metal braces. Invisalign even offers custom-made aligners made from smooth, comfortable plastic material specifically designed for your teeth. They fit snugly over your teeth without causing any irritation and maintaining comfort, eliminating rubbing or irritation to the tissues of the cheek, which can commonly occur with metal brackets and wires. While Six Month Smiles™ uses brackets and wires, they are tooth-colored and are on for a much shorter period of time when compared to conventional braces.

Undergoing an Evaluation To Find Out More

An evaluation is required in order to decide if you are a good candidate for orthodontia in the first place. The severity of your misalignment may dictate the treatment best suited for your needs. Mild misalignment can often be improved quickly with Six Month Smiles™, while bite adjustments and more moderate cases of misalignment are best with Invisalign™. Dr. Matthew Huff can help in making recommendations if you are unsure which one will improve your smile in the way you desire.
