Waiting is a hard thing to do when it’s for something important to you. Sometimes you can avoid or shorten the wait time and other times you must exercise patience. Do you need orthodontic treatment? Have you put off getting it corrected because of the time it takes for traditional treatment? At Jackson Center for Smiles, we can fast-track your journey to a dazzling smile with Six Month Smiles.
What Is Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles is a method of straightening teeth by closing gaps, eliminating crookedness, and improving the alignment of your upper and lower front teeth in six months.
How Is It Different From Regular Braces?
Six Month Smile uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to give you a more discreet orthodontic solution. Because the system focuses only on the front teeth, it works quicker.
Benefits of Six Month Smiles
Comfortable — Six Month Smiles causes less pain and discomfort to the teeth and gums because it uses a lower amount of force to move your teeth.
Cost-effective — Shorter treatment time and fewer office visits translate to lower costs compared to traditional braces.
Confidence Booster — When you’re satisfied with the appearance of your teeth, your self-confidence increases.
Six Month Smiles Process
At the consultation visit, we’ll do an exam, get x-rays, take photographs, and make impressions of your teeth to determine if you’re a candidate for treatment.
The appointment to place your braces takes approximately one hour. We’ll etch the teeth and place the adhesive. The bonding agent is placed inside the trays holding your brackets. We seat the brackets, remove the trays and harden the adhesive with a special light. The final step is to attach the wires, and your treatment begins.
During treatment, expect to see us for adjustments every four weeks, depending on your needs. At the end of treatment, the brackets and wires are removed, and you get to enjoy your fabulous new smile. You must wear a retainer to maintain the position of your teeth.
Six Month Smiles can help problems such as crowding, gaps, mildly rotated teeth, and minor bite issues. It’s not designed to correct complex orthodontic issues. You will need a consultation visit to determine if this is your best treatment option.
