Six Month Braces

Six-Month Braces

Sometimes, patients wish to get braces for cosmetic reasons rather than oral-health ones. Having a straight smile can improve confidence and help you put yourself forward in school, dating, or the workplace. If you’re looking to give your smile a push towards the straight and smiley, Dr. Oh may recommend 6-month braces to you, instead of traditional braces. Six-month braces use low force to move teeth gently into position with a focus on your most visible teeth, rather than the position of your jaw.
