Ask Our Team of Professionals About Fast Orthodontic Treatment with Six Month Smiles
- Posted on: May 15 2019
Patients with imperfect smiles may be unsure about talking to their dentist about ways to address poor alignment of the teeth. They may fear that traditional braces are the only way to achieve the smile of their dreams. Fortunately, there have been many advances in dentistry that now allow patients to realign their smile in a variety of different ways. For patients with mild misalignment of the front teeth, solutions such as Six Month Smiles may be recommended.
What is Six Month Smiles?
Dr. John Highsmith of Clyde, NC is pleased to offer Six Month Smiles as an alternative to more traditional braces. With Six Month Smiles, patients who have spaces or misalignment near the front of their smile can achieve fast results. This treatment addresses the “social six,” or the six teeth most visible in the smile when patients laugh, speak, and smile at others. With the use of clear brackets and wires, patients can quickly reposition their teeth without feeling self-conscious about the appearance of their orthodontia.
Who is a candidate?
The best candidates for Six Month Smiles are men and women who are seeking an aesthetic alternative to traditional braces to fix mild to moderate misalignment of the anterior teeth. Determining candidacy can be done during an evaluation appointment with the team of professionals at our practice. X-rays may be taken to check the health of the smile prior to moving forward with cosmetic treatments such as this.
How long does treatment take?
Just as the name suggests, most patients are able to achieve the results they desire within approximately six months. Some patients can achieve their changes in less time, while others may require a little longer. All of this depends on how much movement needs to occur to align the smile within the dental arch.
