However, if you research these claims carefully, you will find that these techniques focus only on aligning the front teeth, and do nothing to correct any of the problems with your bite, which is a significant issue in terms of your long-term dental health.
Thankfully, the newer treatment technology does not require us to accept these compromises. The kind of corrections that can be made with "6 Month Smiles" in, well, 6 months, leave the patient with an incomplete and unstable correction. However, because of the new technology with self-ligating braces, we can do a complete correction for similar cases in 11-12 months. Hardly worth the difference to accept a compromise, or an unstable result. If you have a question, please contact any one of our Sondhi-Biggs Orthodontics team members.
