Adult Braces Pros and Cons Doral - Smiling woman at Miami Modern Dental

The pros and cons of adult braces for Doral area residents

Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. are proud to offer Doral area patients with a wide range of services in their practice, including that of orthodontic alternatives. Orthodontics have come a long way over the years, and patients are excited to learn about the treatments they can use to rejuvenate their smile and address misalignment and spacing. These imperfections can negatively impact the smile, so it may be beneficial for patients to undergo orthodontic care. However, our team encourages individuals to consider adult braces such as Six Month Smiles.

Six Month Smiles work a little differently than more traditional metal bracket and wire braces. Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. describe them as "clear" braces because the brackets and wires used are tooth-colored. This ensures they look much less noticeable in the smile. They are used on the teeth near the front of the mouth, known as the “social six” to address misalignment and gaps between teeth that may otherwise be detracting from the appearance of the smile.

Six Month Smiles has many pros and cons which need to be considered. They are still bracket and wire braces, which need to be cared for properly to ensure they don’t become damaged. Patients may have to avoid certain foods such as gums and taffies as they can get stuck in the wires. However, the benefit of Six Month Smiles is faster treatment, affordability, and less noticeable wires and brackets. Patients are welcome to speak with a dental professional to weigh the pros and cons of Six Month Smiles treatment versus alternative means such as invisible aligner trays or conventional orthodontia.

Drs. Marlon Pasquier, Sr. and Marlon Pasquier, Jr. of Miami Modern Dental encourage individuals to consider the advantages of Six Month Smiles when compared to more traditional means of straightening the smile. We work closely with our patients to help them determine what is best for them, and in many cases, Six Month Smiles may be advantageous when addressing the teeth near the front of the smile.
