Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I pursue orthodontic treatment if my issues are minor?
Misaligned teeth can make it difficult to brush and floss properly. This can lead to tooth decay and a host of other oral health issues such as gingivitis and infections. Straighter teeth are easier to brush and floss, helping you maintain your oral health.
I'm not sure if I should choose the aligner trays or clear braces.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Pournaras will discuss your orthodontic options and advise you on the treatment plan that fits your personal dental needs. Both systems offer fast and discreet orthodontic treatment and give you a straighter smile that can last a lifetime with proper maintenance.
Do I have to avoid certain food with Six Month Smiles?
The clear aligner trays allow you to remove them before eating, meaning there are no food restrictions during treatment. However, with clear braces, it is important to avoid foods that can damage your braces.
Can my child use Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles is designed for adults only and is not for use in children.
