Did you know that October is National Orthodontic Health Month? That means the circumstances are perfect for freshening up on some oral health tips.

In fact, with Thanksgiving and Halloween just around the corner, this time of year in general provides an excellent opportunity to share critical information regarding orthodontic treatment. Remember, taking care of your oral hygiene ensures not only healthy teeth but a beautiful smile as well.

Maintaining Your Orthodontic Braces

Ensuring your orthodontic braces and appliances stay sparkling has a positive influence your overall oral health. Furthermore, it enables the movement of teeth during orthodontic treatment. Teeth that are clogged with little bits of food and plaque aren’t able to sufficiently shift to the desired position in the mouth. To add to this discomfort, improper oral hygiene will lead to bleeding gums, a real signal that you’re not doing enough maintenance.

The truth about effective orthodontic treatment is that clean teeth play a fundamental role. Spotless teeth react to the gentle pull from orthodontic wires as they should, while those that are full of gunk make it much more difficult for the braces to do their work.

What is the Six Months Smiles System?

If you are an adult that does not currently have braces and are looking to adjust that smile, there is little question in the orthodontic community that braces are the most commonly used and most effective method to give patients straight, healthy teeth and a beautiful grin. The Six Month Smiles procedure has taken the best aspects of braces and modified the treatment and the materials to give adults a common sense, cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle.

By using gentle and non-invasive clear braces, Six Month Smiles helps adults with crooked, poorly spaced or misaligned teeth; and the average time most people wear them is only six months. This modern version of traditional braces is virtually invisible and straightens teeth much more quickly and more comfortably than standard methods. The Six Month Smiles System is designed specifically for adults and teenagers over the age of 15 who have twisted, crowded or spaced teeth – without major bite issues.

The procedure requires fewer dentists’ visits and is typically less expensive than conventional braces. In addition, the Six Month Smiles System can result in healthier gums since straight teeth are easier to clean than crooked teeth. Six Month Smiles has helped thousands of people smile with confidence, and it could be the perfect solution for you.
