Lingual STb Social 6 Braces

Lingual STb Social 6 Braces are an alternative to undergoing months or even years of uncomfortable and possibly expensive orthodontic treatment. Many patients can become disillusioned with orthodontic treatment when it seems to be going on and on, but STb Social 6 Braces are able to deliver treatment in as little as six weeks. The braces are attached to the back of the teeth, which offers a unique level of discreetness. This is a system that is, however, aimed at those with minimal to moderate crowding or spacing, for which STb Social 6 Braces is an excellent option. Their discreet nature is a major plus for patients, and one that only amplifies the quality of this brace system.

What are the advantages?

The main advantage of the STb Social 6 Braces system is the shorter length of time the patient has to undergo orthodontic treatment. As the brace is uniquely designed to treat moderate anterior crowding or cases where there is minimal spacing, treatment can take as little as six to sixteen weeks. Also, due to the self-ligating system that is employed by lingual braces, there is absolute minimum discomfort. The level of discreetness available is another factor that most patients will find advantageous.

What are the disadvantages?

As with any braces system, it will take some time to get used to the device when it is first attached. However, you will be surprised at how short a space of time it takes for your mouth to get used to the unfamiliar device. In addition to this, the STb Social 6 Braces may not be suitable for all patients, particularly for those who have serious orthodontic problems requiring correction, rather than those who are looking for a slight cosmetic change to their visible teeth. The wires and brackets that compose the STb Social Six braces are incredibly light and fine, so discomfort is kept to a minimum.

How are they fitted?

The first step will be to consult with your orthodontist to make sure that the Social 6 Braces are right for you and your particular problem. Once the decision has been made, impressions will be made of your teeth and the braces will be crafted to fit your mouth. The brackets are attached to the back of the teeth to offer a unique level of discreetness. The time it takes for the treatment to be completed will vary between patients, but you can expect it to take six to sixteen weeks. Regular appointments with your dentist are also necessary to ensure treatment is moving along accordingly.

After the fitting

Oral hygiene is important to make sure you don’t end up with pieces of food stuck under the wire or in the brackets. Brush your teeth after every meal and avoid sticky, sugary snacks. It will take a short space of time to get used to the braces, and there will be slight discomfort at first, but this will soon abate and you can get on with your treatment.
