Powerprox 6 Month Braces
The appearance of our smile is important. Perhaps even more important than we realize. In fact, according to a survey by the AACD ( American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry), more people prefer to spend money on improving their smile instead of improving their body. At Michael L. Chandler’s dental practice, we believe in the power of an attractive smile no matter your age. That’s why we offer Powerprox Six Month Braces in Edmond, OK for patients of all ages who need to straighten their teeth quickly and discreetly.
What is It?
This procedure is a modern take on traditional braces. Whereas traditional braces are uncomfortable and visually unappealing, this method uses clear brackets and wires for treatment that is undetectable and comfortable. The tactics employed in this system have been used in the field of orthodontics for over 60 years.
This straightening method is not a form of aligner therapy such as Invisalign. Instead, the process relies on the traditional and extremely effective method of braces. The use of braces and wires instead of aligners that are often removed means your teeth are straightened faster.
This procedure is great for adults who are in need of a straighter smile but are unwilling to sport a mouth full of braces for two years.
How Does it Work?
This straightening system uses low force to move your teeth into a more attractive alignment. The method does not rely on strong force created by tightening the braces, instead gentle and consistent pressure shift your teeth into proper alignment faster than other procedures.
One of the most impressive features of this straightening system is the “shape memory” built into the braces. This means that even when the braces are stretched and distorted due to the misalignment of your teeth, they are constantly pulling back into their original, proper form and adjusting your teeth in the process.
Unlike full blown traditional braces, this process focuses on cosmetic changes to your teeth’s alignment instead of changing your entire bite. While your bite can be adjusted with our straightening system, the main focus is cosmetic in nature. Teeth that show when you smile are the focus of this procedure which means the treatment time is considerably shorter than regular braces and as a result the treatment is more affordable than aligners and traditional braces.
Here are some of the major benefits to using this straightening method:
- The treatment is fast, comfortable and effective- the average length of time to straighten teeth is only six months!
- The treatment focuses primarily on teeth that are visible when you smile, talk or laugh
- The brackets are clear and the wires are tooth colored and extremely subtle
- The final result and overall look of your smile is easily controlled
- The entire procedure is much less expensive than other teeth straightening methods such as Invisalign and traditional braces
Is it Right for You?
While the process is extremely beneficial for patients in need of a quick fix to minor alignment problems, this method is not for everyone. If your smile is in need of major alignment treatment, this system may not be for you.
