6 Month Smiles is a short term orthodontic system that takes anything between 4-9 month to complete. On average it takes about six month to complete most of the cases, hence the name 6-month smiles.
It is based on conventional orthodontic treatment and therefore it has the brackets and wire system. But the good news is that the brackets are made from clear plastic and it uses tooth coloured wires (Teflon coated), helping it to blend in better with the teeth and less noticeable.
Who can do the 6 month smiles treatment?
This system is designed to be done by general dental practitioners which can make it a cheaper option than the treatment provided by specialist orthodontist and conventional fixed braces.
How does 6 month smiles works.?
Following the initial assessment of the patient and taking some records, impressions of the teeth are taken and sent to 6-month Smiles laboratory in the USA. Then the clear brackets are set in custom made trays with tailor fit on your teeth, allowing the brackets to be glued on to your teeth.
Then tooth coloured memory wires are fitted into the brackets and exerting a gentle force to move and align teeth.
It has set wires of different strength and treatment almost always starts with lowest exerting force to allow least amount of discomfort to the patient.
You will be seen about every 3-4 weeks for adjustments to be made and as teeth move ,replace the wire with stronger ones till teeth are aligned.
As in with Invisalign, to create space between the teeth in crowded jaws, some minor tooth reduction in between the teeth may be needed, otherwise knows and interproximal reduction (IPR). Therefore IPR is a much more conservative and easier option than pulling teeth out with no damage to the teeth and no pain or discomfort.
When having top and bottom jaws treated, to avoid top teeth biting on the brackets in the bottom teeth and breaking them off, we may need to place bite guards on the very back teeth, and are not visible. It is a very simple process and patient very quickly adapt to that. Bite guards are not usually needed if treating top jaw only. We can provide you with more information, if needed , in your free consultation.
what is the difference between 6-month smile and conventional braces?
The 6-month smile is designed to produce rapid and fast movement of the teeth. It mainly concentrate on the movement of the crown of the teeth and pays less attention to alignment of the root of the teeth, hence it being much faster and shorter course of treatment than conventional braces which can take 18-24 months.
It is said that as short term Orthodontic treatment such as Invisalign or 6-month Smiles pay most of their attention to the position of the crown of the teeth, they may have a higher risk of teeth moving and relapse. But again use of retainers is an essential part of any form of orthodontic treatment including fixed conventional braces and without retainers teeth can and will easily move again.
How experienced are we in doing 6-month Smiles ?
We have a good understanding of the way this system works and have attended many accredited training courses organised by 6-month Smiles. So far we have completed more than 50 cases for mostly upper and lower jaws and some single jaw cases. The most important part of the treatment is how satisfied and happy our patients have been with the outcome and results achieved.
We have placed photos of some of the cases that have been done.
How 6-month smiles compare with Invisalign?
In our experience we have noticed that 6-month smiles to be a good system for rapid movement and alignment of the teeth. It’s limitation, in our opinion, is in fine tuning at the end of treatment. Whereas Invisalign can be stronger in final fine tuning of teeth alignment.
For example 6-month smiles is much faster than Invisalign in extrusion of the teeth and is much faster. Other points can be,
- your compliance in wearing Invisalign aligners 22 hrs/day plays a very key role in the treatment outcome as the aligners are removable and you can take them out. But with 6-month smiles, as the brackets are fixed to teeth, you cannot remove them, so compliance plays no role and is more secure in that way.
- Keeping good oral hygiene is easier with Invisalign aligners and no risk of gum growing in between the teeth and around brackets.
- There is risk of brackets coming off with 6-month smiles and generally you need more visits with dentist than Invisalign.
- 6-month smiles can be more ideal when one has to improve the teeth alignment by a specific dead line or when a social event is coming up as it can be faster than Invisalign. For example and a wedding is coming up.
