A Straighter Smile in Six Months?
What if we told you that you could have straighter teeth in just six months? While traditional orthodontic braces can take a couple of years to shift crooked teeth in position, the Six Month Smiles® system can accomplish that in just half a year.
The Six Month Smiles® system focuses on the front six teeth. It’s an ideal solution for those patients who have an overbite, crowded or overlapping teeth, large gaps in the front teeth or teeth that are off-center.
Adults enjoy the benefit of this orthodontic system for the following reasons:
- They had braces as a child but have had an orthodontic relapse due to not wearing a retainer
- They have teeth that have shifted due to aging
- They have imperfections but don’t need a full set of braces
While the treatment uses brackets, wires and applied pressure just like traditional braces, the brackets and wires that the Six Month Smiles® system uses are the same color as your natural teeth so that they blend in with your smile. This is a great option for teens and adults who would rather not wear metal. The system also uses a lower force so that the treatment is more comfortable.
The process is similar to traditional braces in that the system slowly pushes your teeth into a desired position over time. Before we recommend Six Month Smiles®, we will have you undergo a consultation with the doctor, take digital X-rays and photographs to determine if this is the best option for your dental needs.
If you move forward with the system, the next step is to bond the brackets to the teeth and attach the arch wire. We’ll see you every 4–6 weeks to tighten the arch wire.
