What Is Six Month Smiles?
If you have a teeth or jaw misalignment and want to improve the alignment of your teeth and ultimately, the appearance of your smile, then Six Month Smiles® may be right for you. This method of orthodontic treatment is becoming increasingly popular due to how fast and effective treatment is for many patients.
Six Month Smiles explained by a general dentist
Anyone who is not happy with the appearance of their smile due to jaw or teeth alignment but wants a more discreet and fast treatment option should consider Six Month Smiles. The following is a complete review of what Six Month Smiles is and what patients can expect throughout the treatment process.
A review of Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles refers to an orthodontic treatment system that many general dentists offer. Treatment addresses issues such as crooked teeth, overcrowding, spacing issues, underbites and overbites. Both treatment options available with Six Month Smiles (invisible aligners and clear braces) are transparent and not highly noticeable by others. The average treatment time is six months, and the entire treatment process is overseen and monitored by a licensed dental professional.
The ideal candidate for Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles can address a range of alignment concerns. Treatment is primarily for patients who are 16 and older and want a discreet treatment method. Often, traditional braces, while effective, are not an ideal solution because they are highly noticeable and may lead to a less professional look in the workplace, and many feel insecure while wearing them. This is not a concern with Six Month Smiles, as no one is likely to notice that you are straightening your smile. Even better, patients typically only have to wear the aligners or braces for six months to a year.
What to expect throughout the treatment process
The treatment process is different for everyone as every Six Month Smiles plan is custom-tailored based on the patient’s individual alignment needs. However, the process typically involves a consultation to find out which options are available and which option is best, followed by customizing the aligners or applying the braces and wearing the treatment system. Regular check-up visits and new aligners (if applicable) are given. After treatment, the patient must wear a retainer to keep their smile straight for the long term.
When to consider Six Month Smiles treatment
No one should have to feel insecure due to an imperfect teeth or jaw alignment. Six Month Smiles is an affordable treatment option, and individuals over the age of 16 who are interested in improving the alignment of their smile via orthodontic treatment should consider the benefits of Six Month Smiles.
