STb Social 6 Braces
STB STb Social 6 Braces are based on a similar principle to the STB light lingual braces but are used to treat mild or moderate orthodontic problems. The STB STb Social 6 Braces are commonly used to treat overcrowding at the front of the mouth and gaps between the anterior teeth. STB lingual braces are designed to offer the perfect solution for patients that are desperate to have straight, healthy looking teeth but are worried about the way their braces will look.
How do STb Social 6 Braces work?
STb Social 6 Braces have been developed using the latest dental technology; this treatment uses a unique self-ligation system, which reduces rubbing and causes the teeth to be moved in the correct direction in a shorter period of time than traditional braces.
What are the benefits of STb Social 6 Braces?
The most beneficial aspect of the STb Social 6 Braces is their invisibility. Unlike the majority of brace systems, the STb Social 6 Braces are so discreet that they are completely invisible to other people. The other main benefit of this type of treatment is the incredibly short treatment time. It is often the case that the majority of people associate orthodontic treatment with years of wearing a brace, but patients who opt for the STb Social 6 Braces can expect to see results within a period of weeks.
Are STb Social 6 Braces lingual braces for me?
STb Social 6 Braces are not suitable for people with more severe orthodontic problems; they are designed to treat problems including overcrowding and gaps between the teeth and are usually only used on the front teeth. A dentist may recommend STB light lingual braces for patients with more complex orthodontic issues.
Are the braces painful and will they interfere with my speech?
The braces have been specifically designed to enable patients to achieve the results they want without suffering any pain or disruption to their speech. At first, the braces may feel a little odd but patients will soon get used to them. Unlike most types of brace, the wires and brackets that make up the STb Social 6 Braces are extremely fine and light and cause minimum discomfort; they might have a mild effect on speech to begin with but this should subside very quickly.
How long will I have to wear the braces for?
Treatment time varies according to the individual patient but most treatment is complete within 16 weeks. Your dentist will be able to give you an idea of how long you will wear your braces for at your initial consultation.
