These braces are placed on the inside of your teeth. A new low profile bracket without the sharp wings has been developed. Your tongue is comfortable but will notice the difference. The light pressure wire moves the teeth quite quickly.

The braces come in various forms and can be chosen according to fit the requirements of most patient’s specific requirements.

The braces are used for both children as well as adults. But it is usually preferred  to be used for patients who do not have any major bite problems. People having minor repositioning problems are usually advised to use the social six braces treatment.

Treatment time varies according to the individual patient but most treatment is complete within four months. Your dentist will be able to give you an idea of how long you will wear your braces at your initial consultation.

Once the treatment is completed,  a retainer must be placed. This is necessary to ensure that the newly repositioned teeth do not move back to their old position again.  Retention is the most important part of short term braces. Without it the teeth will move back just as quickly as the moved to the correct postition.
