Misaligned or crooked teeth can make you feel self-conscious regardless of your age. At Garrison Family Dentistry, we offer options when it comes to braces and correcting misalignments. For instance, we are happy to offer 6 month adult braces, which may be a great choice in some situations.
If you have been hesitating to have misaligned teeth corrected because you did not want to wear braces for a year or two, 6 month adult braces are a great choice. Often adults are concerned with the cosmetic appearance of their teeth, not necessarily the position of the bite.
The 6 month adult braces use memory wires made of nickel and titanium, along with state of the art brackets. The braces are lighter than traditional braces, but work in the same way. Gentle pressure is gradually applied to the teeth to correct misalignments. The treatment only takes about five to seven months to complete.
In addition to 6 month adult braces, we also offer ceramic braces for patients of all ages. Ceramic braces use brackets, which are similar in size to traditional braces. The difference is ceramic braces use clear or tooth colored brackets instead of metal. Tooth colored wires can also be utilized, which makes ceramic braces, less noticeable than traditional metal braces.
Our team at Garrison Family Dentistry is proud to offer our patients exceptional dental services including orthodontics. For more information on braces or in order to schedule an appointment, please call our office at 816-532-8706.
