Q: How can teeth be straightened in only six months?

Six Month Orthodontics employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely. 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: Six months sounds good, but will I still have a mouth full of metal for the whole time?

No! Six Month Smiles treatments use tooth-colored braces that are barely visible. The wires are usually tooth-colored as well. These are nothing like the classic train-track metal braces!

Q: Are Six Month Smiles more comfortable than regular braces?

Six Month Smiles Braces use low force to move teeth more comfortably. Many people think that the accelerated treatment means simply tightening regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. Six Month Smiles utilizes standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.

Q: Will I have to wear a retainer?

Yes you can choose to have a fixed retainer bonded to the back surfaces of your teeth or a removable retainer that your wear a few nights a week to prevent the teeth from moving back after treatment with the Six Month Smiles Braces.

If 6 month smile treatment is not a suitable teeth straightening treatment then Invisalign or Social 6 Braces may be an alternative.
