Orthodontics: Braces and More
When you think of orthodontics, you likely imagine braces. While traditional braces are a popular form of orthodontics, dentists - and patients - are discovering other options to help align crooked smiles. Advances in technology have created options that make you look and feel good. Fredericksburg dentist Dr. Sean Kim specializes in two main forms of orthodontic care: Invisalign and Six Month Smiles.
Instead of brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear aligners to straighten teeth. These aligners are made of plastic that is clear, comfortable and smooth. They are worn over the teeth and made to gradually shift your teeth into place. You'll get a new set of aligners every two weeks throughout the duration of your treatment, which typically lasts a year or longer. Invisalign aligners are easy to care for. You take them out when you eat and brush your teeth and pop them back in when you're done. The result is a beautiful smile, and nobody will even know that you were straightening your teeth.
Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles takes the effectiveness of braces and modernizes them so that they are barely visible. With clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, Six Month Smiles are barely visible. As the name implies, the treatment time is just six months. The price is also less expensive than traditional braces and Invisalign aligners. Specialized tray kits make appointments comfortable.
