The Six Month Smile and why it`s good for us. By a South East London

22 / 10 / 2010

A South East London dentist has spoken out about the wonders of a six month smile. The system takes six months to accomplish, rather than having a life span of six months. Many of us are embarrassed about our teeth, nobody`s teeth grow straight and we all need some help during our lifetime to make them as perfect as we can get them. The six month smile consists of a series of clear braces that are fitted every two weeks, over that period they move the teeth and can straighten overlapped, crooked and misaligned teeth; they also close gaps in between our molars to give us an almost perfect smile to be proud of. The braces are all self contained and come in the form of what looks like a sports gum shield, with lots of wires and tiny pulleys embedded within the inner side of the device. You can remove them yourself when you want to eat and clean your teeth, then you simply place them back in position. They can be removed for up to around 4 hours a day, so when you`re socialising you can take them out and no one will know you are having the treatment. They are very tight fitting when they are first put in, but as they do their job they loosen up and by the time the fortnight is up they are very loose. This indicates that they have done their job well for that stage of the process, and the next stage brace can be fitted.
