What is a Six Month Smiles method all about?
Six Month Smiles is designed for adults with mild orthodontic issues related to the alignment of your teeth. If Invisalign or traditional braces is not the right option for you, Six Month Smiles will provide you with similar benefits and guarantee a beautiful smile worthy of envy.
Six Month Smiles is a combination of traditional braces and clear aligners, such as Invisalign, also offered in our dental assortment. The method involves the use of “Lucid-Lok” clear brackets with tooth-colored wires, which makes the Six Month Smiles technique virtually invisible.
If you are struggling with minor front teeth alignment deficits, the specialized system of Six Month Smiles will sort you out.
How does Six Month Smiles work?
During the initial visit to our practice, our experienced and qualified doctor will painlessly scan your teeth and take 3D images to customize your aligners based on your individual needs. All the collected information will be sent to the Six Month Smiles laboratory, where trained orthodontists work their magic. Your dentist may also place specialized tooth-colored attachments on your teeth, which help you move your teeth accurately with little to no trouble. Those attachments are highly responsible for the success rate of the treatment.
How is Six Month Smiles different from other orthodontic methods?
Because Six Month Smiles method focuses on straightening minor front teeth misalignments, the treatment time is substantially shortened. With traditional braces, depending on the severity of the malocclusion, the treatment may take up to a few years. Invisalign, a transparent aligner system, takes on average 12 months to complete. Comparably, the Six Month Smiles technique can be accomplished within 6 months with great success.
Am I the right candidate for the treatment?
If you are looking for a minimally invasive orthodontic treatment, the best way to know whether or not you qualify for the Six Month Smiles treatment is to consult with our dentists at Kelly Road Dental Care. With the comprehensive examination and digital images, we will guide you through the best possible solution to your unique problem. Together, we will derive a treatment plan and determine the right course of action.
Because Six Month Smiles focuses on minor misalignments, this cosmetic treatment may not be right for everyone. Common issues that may be corrected with the Six Month Smiles include:
- Slightly crooked teeth
- Lightly gapped teeth
- Minimal misalignment issues
- Anterior crossbite
- Slight overcrowding of your teeth
- Minimal deep bite
- Minor overlap
- Minor overbite
The Six Month Smiles can also be used as initial preparation for further cosmetic restorations.
If you have severe bite issues or teeth misalignments, you may not qualify for the treatment. The best approach to correct these problems would be using Invisalign clear aligners or traditional braces, as those focus on fixing the complex orthodontic issues instead of providing cosmetic comfort.
