6 Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles is a cosmetically focused orthodontic treatment performed in less than 9 months with specific tooth colored brackets and wires. This system is designed for an adult (17 years and older) and is performed by general dentists. The goal of Six Month Smiles is to give the patient an attractive smile in a reasonable amount of time. The secondary goal is to improve the occlusal relationship as much as possible during treatment. The goal of comprehensive orthodontic (recommended for the child, adolescent and teenager) is usually to finish with a result that is as close to an “ideal” bite as possible irrespective of how long it takes to achieve this.
Six months is the average treatment time. Most patients finish right around six months, but treatment times range from 4-9 months.
