Learn all you need to know about Powerprox Six Month BracesDrs. Marlon Pasquier, at Miami Modern Dental, describes Powerprox Six Month Braces as a less noticeable method of straightening the smile compared to traditional braces. This is because the brackets and wires are tooth colored. Additionally, these braces are specially designed to move teeth faster than conventional methods, ensuring patients improve mild to moderate misalignment within approximately six months with routine care.
Why straighten the smileMisaligned teeth are typically seen as a cosmetic concern. However, there are other reasons a patient may want to consider straightening the smile.
- Teeth that are correctly aligned will improve the bite alignment, ensuring the teeth are not unusually worn with chewing.
- It can reduce the risk of developing problems such as temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMD, which can cause pain and discomfort of the jaw joint. This condition is also responsible for causing chronic headaches, popping jaws, and other concerns.
- Lastly, a properly aligned smile can ensure there are no crevices or areas where food particles can become stuck. This contributes to overall better oral health. Patients with aligned teeth will lower their risk of developing periodontal disease or dental decay.

With Powerprox Six Month Braces, men and women are excited to realign their teeth without traditional braces and in a faster manner than ever before! Patients with mild to moderate misalignment of the anterior teeth, including gaps and crooked teeth, are often desirable patients for this treatment. To determine this, the dentist takes x-rays to check the health of the smile to ensure problems such as periodontal disease and tooth decay are not present. A physical evaluation of the teeth will also help the dentist determine if patients are a good fit for this treatment. If it is determined that the misalignment is too severe to be improved with Powerprox Six Month Braces, a referral will be made to a traditional orthodontist for further evaluation.
Are there alternatives to Powerprox Six Month Braces?The dentists of Miami Modern Dental may recommend patients visit a traditional orthodontist if their misalignment is too severe for treatment with this method. Additionally, if one or two teeth are problematic for a patient, a recommendation of other solutions such as the placement of porcelain veneers may be made.
