Can braces be worn only 6 months?

I read that some patients needed braces only for 6 months. Is it possible. What can one do to get such a short treatment time?

Yeah... I read that somewhere to. I think it's not special or anything, i think it just has to deal with how fast your teeth change and there's nothing you can do about it I guess.

Actually, the average adult wears braces for 18 months to three years. Some braces(which worn for 6 months) are quite expensive that they employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely with clear adult braces. They uses clear Invisalign M√ľnchen that are barely visible to gently straighten your teeth.

Hey! I had worn short term braces for 6 months as suggested by my dentist Dr. David Silberman in Texas. It was very effective for me. If you want to have braces for 6 months you could talk about it to your dentist. Within 6 month duration teeth will get aligned properly. There is no need to put the braces for a long period. This is a popular treatment.

You need to wear your braces the way your dentist tells you. As far as night wear goes, you must wear it forever unless you want your teeth to move, which will result in you possibly needing braces again.
