What is Six Month Smiles?
Have you considered orthodontic or teeth straightening treatment but been put off by the prospect of wearing braces or aligners every day for up to three years? Now there is an answer for those wanting a quick fix for their crooked smile – the revolutionary 6-Month Smiles treatment.
Six-Month Smiles can be used to treat a wide variety of orthodontic complaints, including:
· Crowding - teeth are too close together
· Spacing - gaps between teeth
· Overbite - teeth overlap too much
· Overjet - front teeth stick out
· Underbite - lower teeth stick out
· Crossbite - teeth bite the opposite side
· Openbite - your teeth do not meet when you bite
What are the benefits?
The main benefits of the 6-Month Smiles system are: · The wires are discreet and tooth-coloured.
· Treatment time is reduced by up to 75%.
· Discomfort is kept to a minimum, as the teeth are gently repositioned.
· Cost is around half that of traditional braces.
How long does it take?
The treatment takes on average 5—12 months. The length of your treatment will be determined by the complexity of your individual case.
What does the treatment involve? During your first visit, you will be fully assessed and your dentist will take some photographs, X-rays and examine your smile. Your dentist will also give you an indication as to whether the 6-Month Smiles treatment is suitable for you and the likely treatment time and costs involved.
On your second visit, 3 weeks later, you will be fitted with the special 6-Month Smiles braces, which are small, white brackets, and special wires that come directly from the 6-Month Smiles laboratory in the United States.
After your first fitting, you will visit your dentist every 4-5 weeks for 45minute—1 hour appointments for regular adjustments of your braces until the end of your treatment.
Does it hurt?
Like any orthodontic treatment, there will be some discomfort when you start the treatment, but over time you will become accustomed to it. What sets the 6-Month Smiles braces apart is that they use low force to move teeth more comfortably. 6-Month Braces utilise standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite. It may be advisable to take some mild painkillers such as ibuprofen or paracetamol during the first few days of your treatment.
