What are Six Month or Lingual braces?

Six month braces, or lingual braces, are a prime alternative for anyone who wants a straight smile without revealing “silver teeth”. Since six month braces are placed behind teeth, no one can see them. The cosmetic dentists at Glenwood Smiles use six month braces with the Powerprox Six Month Braces® Technique. This system delivers a straight smile quickly without anyone knowing you’re wearing braces. Powerprox is their “secret” orthodontic tool that dramatically improves smiles in a very short amount of time.

Years ago finding fast braces for a straighter smile was not possible. Our Raleigh orthodontists are trained with the Powerprox Technique and work closely with our patients at routine orthodontic adjustment appointments.
Six Month Braces – Frequently Asked Questions

Do all Raleigh dentists provide six month braces?

No. Six month braces require special training. The technique is very different than standard orthodontic braces. Our Raleigh dental practice is trained on the unique methods of the Powerprox Six Month Braces® Technique.

Can you use six month braces on both upper and lower teeth?

Yes, we can. There are also clear options available. We commonly do a combination of upper lingual braces with lower clear braces.

Are six month braces more expensive than regular braces?

Yes. Since six months braces are custom made to fit each patient’s mouth, and the Powerprox treatment requires special training for our Raleigh dentists, six month braces cost more than regular silver braces.

Are six month braces harder to adjust to than regular braces?

Both regular braces and six month braces require an adjustment period. The main difference is that six month braces affect the tongue, while regular braces affect the lips and inner cheeks. Plus, six month braces may affect speech at first. Our Raleigh dentist office provides comfort aids to help you through the adjustment period, which lasts only 1 to 4 weeks.

Are the final results as good with six month braces as they are with regular braces?

Yes. You will have straight teeth and a beautiful smile and no one will know you wore braces.

Maybe your still not convinced? They say,“Seeing IS believing!”. Just go to the 6 Month Braces page ( http://www.glenwoodsmiles.com/blog/six-month-... ) to view some before and after pictures of Lingual braces in action and read more about this state of the art procedure.

Only 6 months? That sounds like a great deal You mentioned that there was a price difference, though. How dramatic is the difference in cost? These lingual braces may just be worth it. I've never actually had braces because I haven't wanted to deal with it for 2 years (the amount of time all of my brothers had to have them). What do you think of this orthodontist: http://www.marorthodontics.ca ? Thanks for the information. Great post.

Great post! I've been looking for some insight on finding someone who specializes in lingual braces in Edmonton. So far this and http://www.marorthodontics.ca/index.php/sidem... have been the most helpful. Thanks for sharing!
