Six Month Smiles treats a range of teeth straightening issues, ranging from minor tooth movements to more complex cases. Whatever the issue, the result is a new, more even smile that you will want everyone to see.

Here are some of the straightening issues that can be treated with Six Month Smiles:
Overcrowded teeth occur when there is a lack of room within your jaw for all of your teeth to fit normally.
Widely spaced teeth occur when you have extra space within your jaw.
Crossbites occur when the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned. It usually causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth, and can happen on both the front and/or the sides of the mouth.
Deep bites occur when the upper teeth overlap significantly with the lower teeth.
Underbites occur when the lower teeth protrude past the front teeth, usually caused by undergrowth of the upper jaw, overgrowth of the lower jaw, or both.

A Cosmetic Solution to Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional braces have been shown to be the most conservative and predictable way to achieve a great smile, but many people aren't thrilled with the thought of having a mouth full of metal. With Six Month Smiles, you'll still get the great results of braces, but Six Month Smiles Lucid-Lok® clear brackets and Chameleon™ tooth-colored wires are barely visible, so you can feel free to smile with confidence while your teeth are being straightened. Plus, the average treatment time is only six months!

Are Six Month Smiles braces comfortable?

Yes! Even though your treatment is accelerated, Six Month Smiles braces focus on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite, so it can use low force to move teeth and there's no extra “tightening” involved.

Do Six Month Smiles braces damage teeth, roots, or gums?

There are no more risks of root damage or other issues than those associated with traditional orthodontics. Since the forces used with Six Month Smiles braces are lighter and teeth are seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved with Six Month Smiles orthodontics.

Am I a candidate for Six Month Smiles?

If you are 15 years or older with crooked or spaced teeth and you're not looking for a major alteration to your bite, this could be the solution for you! Most adults ARE candidates, but only your dental professional will be able to decide if Six Month Smiles is right for your specific needs.

ClearCorrect Clear Aligners

ClearCorrect, similar to Invisalign, is another alternative to traditional braces that straightens teeth using a series of clear, custom-made, removable aligners that gradually move teeth a little bit at a time.
Since the treatment involves clear aligners, which are nearly invisible, most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them.

In addition, it’s easy to remove the aligners which allows you to eat whatever you like. There are no wires to trap food or get in the way when you floss.

Treatment time depends upon your specific condition and degree of misalignment, but on average you can expect the treatment to last one to two years.

If you are an adult (16 years and older) with crooked or spaced teeth and you're not looking for a major alteration to your bite, Six Month Smiths or ClearCorrect could be the solution for you. Set up an appointment today to learn more and see which treatment is right for you. A better smile is just a phone call away.
