Six Month Smiles

Straighten Your Teeth In 6 Months.

Six Month Smiles is an innovative orthodontic teeth straightening system for adults who wish to straighten their teeth in just a few months. It uses a system of fixed braces and arch-wire, widely accepted as the most effective way to straighten teeth; however the system uses tooth coloured materials for the braces, making them barely noticeable to others. Six month smiles braces move teeth into alignment in 6 months on average (actual treatment time can vary based on individual circumstances); as a result, it is most suitable for people who wish to straighten their teeth faster as compared traditional orthodontic treatments.

The Six Month Smiles teeth straightening system works in a manner that’s similar to traditional orthodontic fixed braces; it uses a system of braces fixed to the front surface of the teeth and wires that are placed onto the braces; the wires are adjusted by the orthodontist to straighten the teeth over time. However, the key difference is that Six Month Smiles uses tooth-coloured braces and wires, making the materials barely noticeable to others and therefore very discreet. Also, the Six Month Smiles braces and wires are a lot easier for the orthodontist to fit on the teeth compared to traditional orthodontic braces. An impression of your teeth and mouth is sent to the Six Month Smiles lab, which manufactures custom trays specific to your teeth. These custom made trays help the orthodontist to place the braces accurately onto your teeth. The process is therefore much quicker and also cheaper compared to traditional orthodontic braces.

Treatment times can vary based on individual circumstances, however, they can be as low as 6 months.

Treatment Stages

Stage 1 – Consultation
During the consultation appointment, our orthodontist will perform a full evaluation of your gums and teeth, and determine the state of your oral health. They will then assess your teeth straightening requirements and suggest the best treatment options and choices available to you. After the initial evaluation, if the orthodontist determines you could benefit from the treatment, they will provide you a view of what the result of the teeth straightening treatment will be.

Stage 2 – Custom-made trays
Once you have thought through the options and agreed to take up treatment, an impression of your upper and lower teeth will be taken. The orthodontist will send these impressions along with pictures of your teeth to the Six month smile lab, where custom-made trays will be built specific to you.

Stage 3 – Fitting
When the braces are returned to us from the lab, the orthodontist will invite you for a fitting appointment, where your custom made trays and wires will be fitted to your teeth. At the end of the appointment, the orthodontist will provide you tips and advice to ensure the treatment is effective and also to maintain your oral health.

Stage 4 –Review appointments
Depending on how complex your treatment is, our orthodontist will schedule review appointments’ with you every 4 to 6 weeks to monitor your progress and for retightening the braces, if required.

Stage 5 – Treatment Completion
On completion of the treatment, the orthodontist will remove the braces from your teeth and explain the retention options available to you. Retainers will need to be worn after treatment to prevent the teeth from sliding back to their original position. Various retainer options are available, including removable and fixed retainers. Fixed retainers can be fixed to the back surface of the teeth, eliminating the need to carry removable retainers with you all the time.

Your brushing technique may need to change slightly to cater for the braces on your teeth. Start with rinsing the mouth with water to dislodge food particles. Then brush at a 45 degree angle on the gum line. Now brush the teeth with the bristles angled downwards and brush on top of each brace.

It is necessary to wear a retained after all orthodontic treatments, including 6 month smiles, in order to prevent the teeth from moving back to their starting positions.
