Six Month Smiles

What is Six Month Smiles?

Six Month Smiles is a type of orthodontic treatment that is virtually clear in nature and can take just six months to complete. The tooth-colored brackets and clear wiring will ensure that any crowding or misalignment is handled without spending years in braces. Six Month Smiles is best suited to adult patients over the age of about 16 to 18. The reason for this is because treatment is done in just six months, so it is quick and dramatic.

Why is Six Month Smiles needed?

You might be considering Six Month Smiles as a re-treatment for orthodontic work. You might be an adult who has already undergone years worth of orthodontic treatment, but your teeth are slightly crowded and crooked from not keeping up with the results. Likewise, you may want a quick and easy way to handle your mild to moderate crowding and misalignment without spending many years in braces and other appliances.

Who is a candidate for Six Month Smiles?

Patients over the age of 16 are good candidates for Six Month Smiles. We like to think that Six Month Smiles is the adult-specific orthodontic option because of how quickly it works. Adults who have a crooked or misaligned smile don’t want to spend years going back and forth for treatment. Six Month Smiles offers quick results that are dramatic and professionally done.

What can be expected during Six Month Smiles?

The first step is to come in for a consultation. This will include x-rays, impressions and an examination by Dr. Ally. You will then have clear brackets and tooth-colored wiring attached to your teeth. You will need to come back in every few weeks for an adjustment to this wiring. In just six months, the treatment is finished and the brackets and wires are removed. You will then maintain your results with a simple retainer that can be worn nightly. Six Month Smiles is ideal for patients wanting orthodontic treatment that is quick and easy, but still effective.
