Overview

Advanced Dental Care in Cocoa, FL is pleased to offer Six Month Smiles to patients who wish to straighten their teeth without compromising style or time. This treatment is an ideal orthodontic solution for individuals 16 years of age and older. It utilizes clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to correct the alignment of the teeth, unlike traditional metal braces. The low force of the appliance also allows for shorter wear time and more comfort. In addition, it is often less expensive than other orthodontic methods such as Invisalign and metal braces which are usually worn for several years. Call our dental office today to schedule an appointment with family dentist Dr. Dieter Burr. He will be happy to sit down with you to discuss how Six Months Smiles can help you. 

Best Candidates

There is little debate within the orthodontic community that braces are the most widely used and most effective method to give patients straight, healthy teeth and a beautiful smile. Six Month Smiles has taken the best aspects of braces and modified the treatment and the materials to give adults and teenagers a cosmetic solution that fits their lifestyle. The length of treatment will depend on the complexity of the case, but the younger the patient is, the less time it usually takes and the patient will often avoid other oral problems. During your consultation, Dr. Burr will assess your teeth to determine if you are an ideal candidate for this treatment.

What to Expect

The Six Month Smiles orthodontic treatment uses tiny, clear brackets that are attached to each tooth that are then threaded with tooth-colored wires that gently, but consistently push the teeth into their proper position. The use of braces has shown to provide the most conservative and optimal result. Faster doesn't mean more discomfort as some might suppose. Six Month Smiles works with low forces and short overall orthodontic treatment times to increase comfort, safety, and hygiene. Patients should return to have their orthodontics and teeth checked every month by Dr. Burr until they are ready to be removed. While wearing braces, patients may find it more difficult to brush and floss their teeth, but it is important to follow a good home care routine and keep the teeth healthy and strong during orthodontic treatment.

Follow-Up

After orthodontics are removed, patient will generally be given a retainer to wear that will prevent the teeth from shifting back to their original position. A retainer can be attached to the back to the teeth or made as a removable mouth piece depending on the patient's lifestyle and needs. Patients should continue a good home oral care routine, including brushing and flossing, and visit Advanced Dental Care for professional cleanings and dental exams.

Insurance Coverage

Dental insurance usually covers some of the cost of orthodontic braces, but this varies based on the type of treatment and the patient's coverage. Our office will coordinate with your insurance company to determine your benefits and out-of-pocket costs. We accept several forms of payment and offer financing plans for our patients to make orthodontic braces affordable.
