Need braces but hesitant to get traditional, unsightly metal ones? Six Month Smiles is a revolutionary orthodontic system that has taken the best aspects of braces and modified the treatment and the materials to give adults a common-sense, cosmetic solution that fits their lifestyle.
They are a set of clear braces and wires that blend with your teeth so that they are virtually unnoticeable. They straighten and align teeth with safe, comfortable and efficient tooth movement.
After the records appointment, the impressions of your teeth and a case submission are sent to the Six Month Smiles Case Processing Facility. Once the case is received, a bracket specialist identifies the correct location for bracket placement on models of your teeth. The specialist then fabricates a guide, making bonding the braces to your teeth remarkably easy, efficient and stress free. The guide, appropriate tooth colored wires, ties and other needed materials are packaged into the Six Month Smiles Patient Tray Kit. Once the Patient Tray Kit has been assembled, it is returned to Dr. Seddon and Dr. Dhillon’s office ready to use.
When you come in for your braces on appointment, the Patient Tray Kit is retrieved and the process begins. After this appointment, you are seen every 4 weeks, for a simple adjustment visit. Once the teeth are in the final position, the braces are easily removed and retention is provided. You can now enjoy your new smile without any trace of self-consciousness. The Six Month Smiles System is safe, straight-forward and patient focused.
Yes, you have an option of wearing a removable retainer or a bonded retainer that will be placed behind your teeth. A retainer is necessary in order to ensure that the teeth stay in their positions.
Any person who is 15 years or older may undergo this treatment process. It is suitable for those with crooked or spaced teeth. Ask about a consultation with Dr. Seddon and Dr. Dhillon today!
