What is your New Year’s Resolution? Perhaps you don’t have one, or you simply don’t think they’re relevant. Why let the calendar affect how you improve yourself? However, most people still want to do better year to year, and where does that take people every January? The gym, mostly. Perhaps the one thing you want to improve can’t be accomplished at the gym: your smile. Your teeth are misaligned, and it makes you less open to smile and talk with people. Crooked teeth can be harder to clean as well. If that’s something you’d like to get fixed, your orthodontist in Slidell at Fremaux Dental Care has a couple of ways to do exactly that.
Six Month Smiles
Most adults who want to straighten their teeth don’t like the idea of a mouthful of metal braces. Even though it’s a perfectly effective way to align teeth, braces have an immature connotation. Many people associate braces with young children, and that is the last thing you want people to think when you’re at work or trying to make an important first impression.
Six Month Smiles helps you avoid this common drawback whiling straightening your smile. As opposed to large, metal brackets, Six Month Smiles uses small, clear brackets with tooth-colored wires. This gives you the reliability of braces without the overwhelming appearance. It is able to seamlessly blend in with your teeth. As the name implies, it is also much faster than traditional braces (which can take years), because the brackets are only applied to the teeth that show when you smile. It is more efficient, and able to dramatically improve the overall look of your smile in a short amount of time.
MTM Clear Aligners
Perhaps the idea of having brackets on your teeth in any form doesn’t work for you. In that case, MTM Clear Aligners can offer you something completely different. Rather than using brackets and wires, it utilizes a series of clear plastic aligner trays that simply slip over your teeth. You would wear each tray in a specific order for about 2 weeks each, and after you have worn them all, your teeth will be completely straight.
They are practically invisible when worn, which means you’ll be the only one who knows you are trying to straighten your teeth. MTM Clear Aligners also have the advantage of being removable. This means whenever you need to eat or clean your teeth, you can take them out, allowing you more freedom and flexibility during your treatment. This works for adults because it’s a treatment that they are able to adapt to their life, not the other way around.
You’re right, you don’t have to wait for the New Year to start improving yourself. If you’re looking to get straighter teeth, you can make an appointment with your adult orthodontist in Slidell today. Dr. Beard will talk with you about your expectations, and will be able to decide which treatment is best for you.
