6 month braces is a short term orthodontic treatment that focuses on the front teeth so long as the bite is functional. What is different about 6 month braces is that in the past, orthodontics was used to treat children with bite problems, facial profile problems, and other bone problems. Most adults want straight front teeth for cosmetic reasons, and we find that bite problems are very rare. 6 month braces is a targeted solution to a cosmetic problem that is long overdue. This different 6 month process streamlines adult orthodontics by not moving the molar teeth which are deeply entrenched in thick bone which is hard to move, and hard to maintain once teeth have been moved.
