  • Large spaces between the teeth that can prevent effective chewing
  • Misalignment between upper and lower teeth which causes an improper bite
  • Teeth that are rotated clockwise or counter-clockwise which make proper oral hygiene difficult
  • Teeth that are titled at an angle, either backward or forward, which can lead to an improper bite, crowing and tooth shifting.
  • Teeth that are not seated on the same line as the others, preventing a straight smile.  This can affect other teeth and also affect proper chewing.
  • Another thing – given that these brackets are placed behind your teeth, it can be tough to brush and floss your teeth. This can lead to tooth decay and gum disease, so you have to be extra watchful.

Conclusion

Opt for the MTM® No-Trace System today and go ahead and plan for your upcoming nuptials with confidence. Your smile will be ready in no time. Be sure to consult an experienced orthodontist so that all your dental needs are properly evaluated before any treatment is prescribed.

If you’ve been living with a less than lovely smile so far, it’s time to fix that before your wedding comes around. You want to look your best, your handsomest or your prettiest. And it’s never too late to get that wonderful straight smile that you deserve, through a fast way to straighten your teeth.

How Quick Braces Treatment Work

It is a term used by a limited number of general dentists who want to expand their services to include braces. The product lacks any scientific data from a reputable educational institution to support their claim of offering an innovative product. The product focuses on straight front teeth without any consideration to the bite and function.

Quick braces sets for compromised short cut to achieve straighter front teeth without any consideration to the bite or long-term negative effect of poor bite. If  what you are looking for is quick fix and cheap way of making your front teeth straight, then this might be the product to consider. But if function and stable smile is one of your priority and having it done the right way, then you need to consider consulting orthodontic professionals who are specialized in treating misaligned teeth and jaws.

What’s The Catch?

There’s more emphasis on a cosmetic success than on the bite position of your teeth. This is why we see this technique very attractive to the younger patients who want instant satisfaction without considering the long-term negative effect on the overall smile and the fit of the teeth. The smile is used in conjunction with veneering treatment. Such option means moving the front teeth to a less crowded position, then completing the job with dental procedure, called veneers.

Considering the previous method means life long commitment to dental maintenance since the dentist removed healthy natural looking enamel and replaced it with artificial “man made” material. The main motive for such approach is lack of knowledge of other safer options and the lack of patience to do it the right way.

A typical customer who falls for such option is a bride who wants to get straighter teeth in no time before her wedding, or a recent graduate who is in the job market for public relation jobs.

Orthodontists are the right trained professionals who spent 3 years of their post graduate education studying misaligned teeth and jaw . Ask your dentist to refer you to a qualified orthodontist, or seek an orthodontic evaluation to explore other safe and clinically sounds options like the Incognito braces, a revolutionary way to get straight teeth using a customized lingual braces, totally hidden and placed behind your teeth.

Incognito braces offer you 100% custom lingual brace treatment that’s target a specific problem areas in your jaw. If you have a wedding coming up, you might want to hurry up and get a consultation immediately. The treatment might take a few months to a few years to complete, so do hurry and get started.

Here’s The Good News

Incognito braces will not just improve your smile a little day by day, but you can actually still be wearing them on the D-Day. And no one will be the wiser. Why? Because Incognito braces are custom-made lingual braces which are very strategically placed at the backsides of your teeth. So you can smile with confidence, knowing that your smile is better already, and knowing that no photo will ever capture your braces.

When To Use Incognito Lingual Braces

Incognito braces are ideal if your teeth are protruding, crooked, widely spaced, overlapping, inverted or overcrowded.  In any of these situations, you can feel free to approach a well-known orthodontist and confidently ask for incognito braces. Remember, only very senior and experienced orthodontists will have the technical expertise to fix lingual braces. So be sure to consult the best orthodontist you can afford.

Using incognito braces can actually slow down your aging, by stopping your gums from shrinking, and thereby preventing wrinkles. This is excellent news for any bride, as we’re sure you’ll agree!

Getting married? Congratulations! Your dream wedding doesn’t need to become a nightmare, just because of your teeth. Great strides have been made in dentistry and orthodontics in the last few years. You can leverage everything from quick porcelain veneers to restorative dental work to achieve the smile of your dreams.

Wedding Teeth Straightened

Getting A Consultation

It’s best to get dental concerns out of your way earlier on. So please book an appointment with a well-known, certified orthodontist soon after you get engaged. Don’t leave it too close to your wedding day. You need the extra time to undergo the cosmetic dental procedures, get used to your new smile and fix it if need be. Your treatment plan depends on how straight your teeth are, what your gum condition is like, and if you already have any fillings or crowns.

Choosing The Right Treatment For You

Today’s braces are more aesthetically pleasing and quicker acting than the ones before. Still, tooth-straightening takes time. Unless you have grossly misaligned teeth, don’t get into a total straightening treatment in time before the wedding.

Ask your orthodontist to consider the following options:

Invisalign

It’s one of the best straightening options without the use of ugly, traditional, metal braces. Invisalign uses clear aligner therapy on the market. Depending on the extent of your straightening needs, you might be required to shell out $4000 to $5500 for the treatment.

Caveat: Invisalign is a good option if you have a year’s time or so before your wedding day, for major straightening. If your teeth are mostly fine except for a few crooked ones out front, your treatment may last for a shorter time. However, you must keep your clear aligners on 24/7, except when eating, if you want good results.

The Verdict: Opt for Invisalign if you have only mild to moderate alignment needs before your D-Day.

Incognito Hidden Braces

Incognito braces are hidden behind your teeth and can be 100% customized for your teeth. They are comfortable, and can fix any smile issues.  They are permanent, and you don’t have to worry about inserting them every day after eating and drinking.  Incognito uses a system of intelligent brackets and wires to straighten your teeth.

Caveat

There’s a certain amount of sophisticated technology that goes into making Incognito™ Hidden Braces. As a result, they can cost a bit more than traditional treatments.

The Verdict

About 100,000 people around the world have opted for Incognito braces. They are highly suitable for people with challenging careers where a smile can make or break the deal.

Wilckodontics Braces

Wilckodontics (originally the Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics TM (AOOTM) procedure) is the amalgamation of various dental philosophies. AOOTM exploits the dynamics of bone physiology to redirect tooth movement. In short, the bone does most of the aligning work rather than being forced by the orthodontic fixture (as how it is with traditional straightening). Wilckodontics takes 3 to 4 times lesser time to straighten teeth than do conventional orthodontics treatments, making it ideal for someone planning a wedding.

Caveat: The treatment include a combined treatment , a collaboration between your treating orthodontist and a periodontist. Both treating doctors are specially trained in this technique, so you need to do your home work searching for the well trained team.

The Verdict: The treatment is quick, and multiple family members can join up to form a single payment structure, which is very family-friendly.

How To Make A Choice

Visit your orthodontist; tell him exactly how much time you have and get your straightening needs thoroughly evaluated. There might be more options, customized methods that might suit your special needs. Consider everything – the time taken, the money, the desired outcomes, the convenience and maintenance before you decide.

If you’ve been looking at ways to straighten your teeth, chances are that you’ve heard about the Six Month Smiles treatment. What is it and how does it work? Can one’s teeth really be straightened within 6 months?

Getting Your Teeth Straightened In 6 Months

What Is A Six Months Smile?

It is a compromised approach to the tried-and-tested orthodontic methods. This treatment method looks for a short cut method to create a straight smile in the shortest possible time without any consideration for the bite or function, pretty much looks good, but does not function right. The six months smile term is a term used by small group of general dentists, not specialists who want to treat maligned teeth but don’t have the experience or the education.  The method focuses on placing braces on the front teeth without any consideration to the back teeth,  contrary to common sense. In a simple word, the technique focuses on look and not function or longevity of bite stability and ignores the biology of the basics of mastication apparatus.

How Can Teeth Be Straightened In Just Six Months?

The treatment is focused mostly on the teeth that actually show when you smile.Same traditional or tooth colored braces are used. Low forces are continually applied to the teeth that need it, moving those gently using standard orthodontic mechanics. Though a straight smile within 6 months might sound too good to be true, it’s possible to achieve straighter front teeth in 6 months, but that comes with a price of ignoring the back teeth and the well being of the bite.

What’s The Catch?

There’s more emphasis on a cosmetic success than on the bite position of your teeth. This is why we see this technique very appealing to the younger crowd who wants instant gratification without considering the long-term negative effect on the overall smile and the fit of the teeth. The six-month smile is used in conjunction with veneering treatment. Such option means moving the front teeth to a less crowded position, then completing the job with a dental procedure called veneers. Considering the previous method means life long commitment to dental maintenance where we removed healthy natural looking enamel and replaced it with artificial “man made” material.

The main motive for such approach is lack of knowledge of other safer options and the lack of patience to do it the right way. A typical customer who falls for such option, a bride who wants to get straighter teeth in no time before her wedding, or a recent graduate who is in the job market for public relation jobs.If you feel you fit under these categories or you are considering six months smile or veneers you should seek a professional evaluation by an orthodontist.

Orthodontists are the right trained professionals who spent 3 years of their post graduate education studying misaligned teeth and jaw and are the best option to address them. Ask your general dentist to refer you to a qualified orthodontist, or seek an orthodontic evaluation to explore Wilckodontics,a revolutionary way to speed teeth movement, or consider Incognito braces, a customized generation of totally invisible and hidden braces.

Fast Orthodontics “Wilckodontics”

Fast orthodontics, also known as fast braces and Wilckodontics Speed Braces, have become one of the most appealing treatments world wide for misaligned teeth. What makes fast orthodontics treatment so attractive is the fact your braces can be removed three to four times quicker than with traditional braces. Most people have their braces removed in three to eight months as opposed to many months or years for traditional braces. Fast orthodontic treatment is also less painful than traditional braces making it an attractive option for a beautiful smile.

Wilckodontics, is an orthodontic treatment which refers to a procedure developed by Dr. Wilcko in the 1990’s. Using acorticotomy( a special technique which include placing micro fracture in the bone surrounding the teeth- a simple technique by using an ultrasound vibration to the treated area) .This produces a healing period called demineralization in which the body produces calcium to repair the bone. This period lasts from eight to twelve weeks, and it is during this time the teeth can be moved into place fairly easily with braces. Once the bone is healed it is much stronger than before, and holds your teeth firmly in place with less chance of relapse.

Benefits of Fast Orthodontic Treatment

Fast orthodontics treatment has many benefits. The main benefit is the much shorter time commitment when compared to traditional braces. In just a few months, instead of a few years, you will have a smile you can be proud of. Many people find fast orthodontics treatment to be far less painful since the teeth are much easier to move into place.

Why You Need To Rush

Incognito braces offer you 100% custom lingual brace treatment that’s targeted towards specific problem areas in your jaw. If you have a wedding coming up, you might want to hurry up and get a consultation immediately. The treatment might take a few months to a few years to complete, so do hurry and get started.

Here’s The Good News

Incognito braces will not just improve your smile a little day by day, but you can actually still be wearing them on the D-Day. And no one will be the wiser. Why? Because Incognito braces are custom-made lingual braces which are very strategically placed at the backsides of your teeth. So you can smile with confidence, knowing that your smile is better already, and knowing that no photo will ever capture your braces.

When To Use Incognito Lingual Braces

Incognito braces are ideal if your teeth are protruding, crooked, widely spaced, overlapping, inverted or overcrowded.  In any of these situations, you can feel free to approach a well-known orthodontist and confidently ask for incognito braces. Remember, only very senior and experienced orthodontists will have the technical expertise to fix lingual braces. So be sure to consult the best orthodontist you can afford.

How It Works

  1. Your orthodontist will take pictures of your teeth and create a treatment plan. A simple correction might take a few months, but anything major can take a year to two years.
  2. Your orthodontist will talk you through the process and show you clay models of what your custom treatment will look like.
  3. After this, a plastic mold will be applied to your teeth with a gooey substance inside it. This mold will be used to create your metal braces, which will take a few weeks to arrive. You can choose the metal for your braces– titanium alloy or gold. Gold has a low allergy risk and is highly compatible with your gums.
  4. Your orthodontist will fit one arch at a time, giving your teeth and gums enough time to get used to it. This will necessitate several sittings.
  5. Once applied, the braces will move your teeth gradually according to the direction given to the metal wires connected to them.

Restrictions

  • You will have to keep away from crusty bread, chewing gum and other crumbly or sticky food items.
  • You’ll also need to be careful while brushing your teeth so that food particles don’t get caught in between the braces.

Side Effects

  • You might experience soreness and minor ulcers on your tongue at first, but this dissipates in a few weeks.
  • You might also experience a little lisp at first, which reverses in a few days

Afterwards

  • After the treatment is complete, your orthodontist will show you before and after pictures to help you come to grips with the changes.
  • You’ll be required to wear think, clear plastic retainers that are more or less like wearing a gum shield.  These retainers will help your teeth retain their new shape and alignment.
  • You might experience sore gums for a while, but it’ll wear off.
  • Depending on the severity of your case, you may need to wear them every night for as long as your orthodontist indicates.

Added Advantage!

Using incognito braces can actually slow down your ageing, by stopping your gums from shrinking, and thereby preventing wrinkles. This is excellent news for any bride, as we’re sure you’ll agree!
