Six-Month Braces

You don’t have to wait years for straighter teeth.

As the name implies six-month braces are an orthodontic appliance with treatment times that are on average completed in six months, as opposed to the year or years associated with traditional braces. Some patients of Dentistry NW are treated in quicker times and some longer depending on the severity of the treatment.

For most patients however a six-month treatment period is a short and attractive solution to problems associated with poor esthetics of the teeth and the problems associated with malocclusion (bad bite).

Six-month braces use wires that exert a light continuous force to move the teeth in a gentle manner that is comfortable and effective.

For patients seeking more image-conscious treatments there is an “invisible” method that places the braces behind the teeth, this way patients can maintain their professional image while straightening their teeth.

Dr. Baer has been my dentist for many years, since he began practicing at the old Tacoma Mall location. Though support staff has changed over the years, they have always been friendly and conscientious. All needed dental procedures have been well explained with alternatives given. Hygienists also well appreciated for care they take. State of the art with spirit of family dentistry.
