Accelerate Your Orthodontic Treatment with Six Month Smiles®
Are you self-conscious about your smile? Do you constantly cover your teeth when you laugh, talk, or pose for pictures? Despite these concerns, many patients avoid orthodontic treatment because they do not want to wear metal braces for two years.Six Month Smiles®, offered at our Richardson, TX practice, is an excellent solution for patients looking to quickly correct gapped teeth or a misaligned bite. This treatment option gradually moves the teeth using tooth-colored wires and clear brackets for a discreet look. Dr. G. Brooks Haney has extensive knowledge in this type of orthodontic treatment and is the Assistant Clinical Director and a Clinical Instructor and Mentor for Six Month Smiles Braces.
Exploring Candidacy for Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles is an outstanding option for those primarily concerned with alignment issues of the front teeth. Often referred to as the “social six”, these are the teeth that are visible when you smile. Eligibility is typically reserved for adult patients with an established bite and a fully developed jaw.
In addition, patients considering any type of orthodontic treatment should be free from gum disease and extensive decay. If these issues are present, restorative options will be recommended first.
Of course, the most surefire way to know if Six Month Smiles is right for you is to attend a consultation with your dentist. During this visit, he or she can assess your specific needs and help you explore your treatment options.
Six Month Smiles vs Traditional Braces
Traditional braces consist of metal wires, bands, and brackets. These components apply gentle, steady pressure to the teeth, gradually moving them into their desired positions. Traditional braces are incredibly effective. However, they are quite noticeable. For this reason, many patients decide to forego orthodontic treatment altogether. In most instances, it takes about 18 to 24 months to straighten teeth using traditional metal braces.
Six Month Smiles is an outstanding option for those primarily concerned with alignment issues of the front teeth.
In contrast, Six Month Smiles uses see-through brackets and white wires that blend in with your natural teeth. As a result, this treatment method is discreet. In fact, these braces are virtually unnoticeable. Treatment with Six Month Smiles is also much faster compared to treatment with traditional braces. As the name suggests, most individuals can achieve the desired results in about six months’ time.
Six Month Smiles Treatment Process
The first step of any procedure is to meet with your doctor during an initial consultation. During this visit, Dr. Haney will talk with you in detail about your personal aesthetic goals and design a customized treatment plan. If you are a candidate for Six Month Smiles, we will schedule an appointment for you to have your braces placed – a process that typically only takes about one hour. During the first month, your teeth will adjust to your new oral appliance, and your smile will begin shifting. Generally, patients will notice an obvious improvement in their smile every single month. During this time, some adjustments will be necessary to keep your progress on track. In most cases, the desired results can be achieved in only six months. The result? A beautiful smile and a boost in self-confidence.
