Q: What exactly is
Powerprox Six Month Braces
A: Adult, cosmetic, short-term, orthodontics developed specifically for use by general dentists.
Q: Why is it short term, and what makes it cosmetic?
A: It is short term because it only treats and corrects your main cosmetic concerns and objections, average treatment takes about 6 months to complete. It is cosmetic because it uses clear braces and tooth colored wires that are not obvious to the casual observer. Many people may not even be aware that you are wearing braces at all.
Q: Can wearing braces on an adult and moving my teeth in such a short time cause problems?
A: No, only very light forces are used.
Q: Will I need a retainer?
A:Yes, all patients must wear a clear plastic retainer at night or a permanently bonded retainer on the underside of their teeth where it is not visible.
Q: Can my 16 year old daughter or my 9 year old son have this type of treatment?
A: No, this treatment is only for adults because the patient must be done growing. Growing children are better served with long term comprehensive traditional orthodontics. We believe that the minimum for Powerprox Six Month Braces is around age 19 or 20.
