Six Month Smiles is an extremely subtle esthetic fixed brace. Its minimalist design consists of brackets and a wire whose color matches the color of your teeth. Modern technology and precise, digital treatment planning enable it to straighten teeth quickly and gently. The Six Month Smiles method is intended for adult patients. It is non-invasive, which means that it does not require drilling on healthy teeth.
If you are 16 or older and if your recommended orthodontic treatment does not involve moving molars or correcting malocclusion – Six Month Smiles is the perfect method for you. It is designed for straightening crowded, protruding and rotated teeth, correcting high canines and diastema (tooth gap) closure. It can even make certain interventions in the patient’s occlusion (cross-bite, overbite).
Unlike the mobile Inman Aligner, this unique appliance is not limited to correcting only front teeth. It can move everything from incisors to molars, which enables it to correct a wider spectrum of orthodontic deviations. The brackets and wire are placed on the patient’s first molars, from which they generate a gentle, yet constant pressure on the teeth. The key to its effectiveness isn’t tightening the brace, but a brand-new technology and planned, focused straightening.
Unlike certain other orthodontic methods, the success of a Six Month Smiles treatment greatly depends on jaw relations. Therefore, in most cases, it is necessary to wear both the upper and the lower brace.
Our friendly staff guarantees an individual medical approach to every patient.
Just like after every orthodontic treatment, it is necessary to wear a retainer after Six Month Smiles to prevent your teeth from returning to their former positions.
