Do you wish you’d had a brace as a teen? Adult braces mean it’s not too late

Many of our clients come to us telling us how much they regret not having a brace when they were younger, even though it was offered in their teens. As one client said, “When you’re that age, you don’t really think ahead to the future. I just remember thinking how mortifying it would be to have a mouth full of metal – there was a girl I really wanted to kiss at the time!”

There may be lots of reasons that you didn’t get your teeth straightened as a child but there’s no doubt that the look of a traditional brace is a significant barrier for some people. And, in most cases, this only gets worse as you move into adulthood.
This is why adult braces – sometimes referred to as ‘invisible orthodontics’ – were created, to answer a need for discreet tooth straightening options for busy adults who often work in public-acing roles and feel that traditional wire braces are simply not an option for them.
Here at Roseacre Cottage Dental in Kent, we use the Six Month Smiles clear brace system to treat a number of alignment problems.

Why Six Month Smiles?

Six Month Smiles is ideal for busy adults who are looking for a discreet brace system that can give them the straight smile they’ve always wanted.

  • The treatment is quick, taking as little as four to nine months to align your teeth.
  • It is comfortable, as it uses low forces to move your teeth into place, and the clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires are also comfortable in the mouth.
  • The treatment is effective, with this brace system providing the most conservative and predictable final result.
  • It is also affordable when compared to traditional orthodontic treatment because it offers such short treatment times.

For most people who use Six Month Smiles, one of the biggest benefits is having the confidence to go about their daily lives because the brace is so hard to spot at a glance. Although more and more of us are seeking orthodontic treatment in our adult lives, we understand that it can be quite an emotional hurdle to get over. Knowing the system is almost invisible is very reassuring and, once complete, the treatment sets people free of worries about their smile that might have affected them for years.
