Q: What is 6 Month Smiles®?
6 Month Smiles® braces uses white wires and clear brackets which are usually tooth-coloured and small to align your teeth.
Treatment times usually fall within 4-9 months. Discomfort is minimal, as teeth are gently repositioned.
Q: How can teeth be straightened in only 6 months®?
A: The 6 Month Smiles® technique employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely using a brace that is attached to your teeth. The key components of the treatment are the use of special nickel titanium wires and a primary focus of moving the teeth that show when you smile.
Q: 6 months sounds good, but will I still have a mouth full of metal for the whole time?
A: No! 6 Month Smiles® dentists use tooth-coloured braces that are barely visible. The wires are usually tooth-coloured as well. These are nothing like metal braces!
Q: Do 6 Month Smiles® braces damage the teeth, roots, or gums?
A: There are no more risks of root damage or other issues than those associated with traditional orthodontics. Since the forces used with 6 Month Smiles® braces are lighter and teeth are seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved with 6 Month Smiles® orthodontics.
Q: Will I have to wear a retainer?
A: Yes, as with any teeth-straightening treatment a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. If you don’t want to wear a removable retainer, you can have a bonded retainer placed. There are a variety of options that you can choose from according to your personal preference and situation.
