Six Month Braces
What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics can fix the alignment of your teeth and jaw. A specialist treatment which straightens crooked teeth and fixes over crowding. There are many options for this treatment using, fixed braces or removable aligners, short-term or long-term, clear or metal.
At MyDental we cover every type of orthodontic treatment. Our spiecialist orthodontists will recommend the best treatment for you at your free consultation. Short-term braces are most suitable for patients who have a few crooked teeth or basic over crowding of the front teeth. For more complex cases and to enhance the patients bite and jaw, a full orthodontic treatment would need to be carried out by our speciaist orthodontist.View Price List
How does a 6 month braces system work?
How Does it Work?Anyone who’s had braces will tell you that they count the days to having them removed. With Quickbraces our Short-term Orthodontics, a typical treatment period is six months, which is a major improvement on the years it may take with more traditional methods used by Orthodontists.
The exact period needed will depend on your particular teeth and your bone structure, but you’ll get a fairly accurate prediction of how long you’ll be wearing them at your first consultation.

Are Quickbraces Suitable For Everyone?
The Quickbraces system is suitable for the vast majority of patients, and we can confirm your suitability at a free initial assessment. Adults of any age can be treated, while treatment of children usually starts at around twelve years of age.
How Are They So Affordable?
Mainly because there are fewer visits to the surgery, so we don’t need to charge as much for our time and expertise. If we’re only seeing you for an average of six months rather than two to three years, the saving in dental hours are obvious.View Price List
First of all, the Quickbraces system is put in place a section at a time, which means that the roots and crown of the teeth only need to move very slowly – causing minimal discomfort.
Secondly, the brackets used to correct the crooked teeth are smaller and more discreet than traditional methods, so they’re much more comfortable and cause minimal inconvenience when biting or chewing.
No two cases are exactly the same, but as a general rule of thumb, you will have an appointment every five weeks – with a norm of five to ten visits.
The bottom line is that you will have a straighter, more confident smile in months rather than years – so what are you waiting for?

How do I take care of my braces?
Taking Care of Your Braces
You may experience some very mild discomfort for the first few days after having your braces fitted, but this will quickly pass. The braces themselves need no particular care regime, but you need to be doubly careful when brushing or flossing your teeth, as there can be a few ‘hidden areas’ caused by the bracesView Price List
