The six month braces technique has actually been used in orthodontics for over 60 years however the modern approach utilizes the latest in orthodontic materials and technologies to move teeth quickly and safely. One of the technologies used are the archwires that have what is called shape memory. These archwires allow the teeth to automatically move to the desired location while continually placing light pressure on the jawbone.
Another advantage to six month braces in addition to the shortened treatment time is the use of clear, nearly invisible braces. These braces have a chameleon-like effect where they blend in seamlessly with the teeth. In some cases the braces can be placed behind the teeth, rendering them completely invisible and allowing patients to straighten their smiles without anyone knowing. This can be a very favorable characteristic for teens or adults who wish to straighten their teeth while maintaining a mature appearance.
Dr. Liza Karamardian of Los Gatos Dental Group expects the event to fill up quickly. “Our first-ever Ortho Day and the discounts that are involved have made this event long-overdue in the eyes of our patients. We expect that many parents as well as image-conscious adults will attend the event to receive a free consult and to determine what kind of treatment plan we can put them on.” To learn more about the Los Gatos Dental Group Ortho Day visit them at http://www.dentalofficesanjose.com/
