Benefits of Six Month Smiles
If you are considering adult orthodontics, you’ve probably realized that there are many different approaches to straightening your teeth. Many people choose Six Month Smiles because it offers many benefits, such as:
- Fast results
- Streamlined appointments
- Predictable results
- Discreet appearance
- Little discomfort
- Lower cost
Of course, the most attractive thing about Six Month Smiles is that it delivers results in such a short time period, about half to a third as long as other orthodontics approaches. In addition, you don’t just save time with a shorter treatment, Six Month Smiles uses an advanced approach to tightening appointments. These appointments are streamlined so you spend less time in our office.
But these faster results don’t mean you’re taking a risk on your results. Six Month Smiles uses the same wires and brackets structure as traditional braces, so we have the experience of more than a century to predict the movements of your teeth.
Unlike traditional braces, though, Six Month Smiles has a discreet appearance. Clear brackets and white wires mean that most people won’t see your braces.
All orthodontics can cause some discomfort from shifting your teeth, but with Six Month Smiles, the discomfort is considerably less than for other approaches.
Surprisingly, despite these advantages, Six Month Smiles is actually cheaper than most orthodontics treatments. Because the treatment saves our time as well as yours, we can charge up to 30% less for Six Month Smiles than for Invisalign or traditional braces.
How Six Month Smiles Works
One thing that surprises people about Six Month Smiles is that it uses a traditional braces approach, but it’s faster. How does that work?
In general, all orthodontics approaches use the same technique. By applying constant force to your teeth, they encourage your body to remove bone from one side of the tooth and build bone up on the other side. This allows the tooth to move.
Six Month Smiles is a classic example of working smarter, not harder. While most braces treatments try to move all your teeth, Six Month Smiles focuses on the teeth in the front of your mouth, the ones that show when you smile. These teeth are smaller, with less pronounced roots. This makes them easier to move so they move faster with less discomfort.
In addition, Six Month Smiles has taken an innovative approach to the typical tightening appointment. The process is streamlined so that you can get your tightening appointments done faster.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Six Month Smiles
Are you wondering if Six Month Smiles is the right orthodontics approach for you? In general, the best candidates for Six Month Smiles:
- Have only cosmetic concerns about teeth
- Have good oral health
- Are committed to caring for their teeth during treatment
As we mentioned above, Six Month Smiles focuses on moving the teeth in the front of your mouth, the ones that show when you smile. This means it can’t help if you have significant bite problems or other concerns linked to the large molars at the back of your mouth.
There is a slight risk that you may develop cavities and/or gum disease in association with orthodontic treatment. To help reduce this risk, it’s best if you are in good oral health before starting the treatment.
Another important aspect of staying healthy during treatment is being committed to the process. You have to be committed to good oral hygiene during Six Month Smiles treatment. That way your teeth stay clean and you end up with attractive results.
