Can you really Straighten Teeth in Six Months?
Yes, you can. In fact, the process can be completed in as few as four months. In cases where extensive realignment is required, it can take as long as nine months, however, these situations aren’t common and usually involve extensive misalignment.
The system is safe and highly effective, and while it does carry a slight risk of enamel demineralization, the risk is no more pronounced than other teeth straightening options.
How Does Six Month Smiles® Compare to Invisalign?
The Six Month Smiles® process is more involved than fitting an Invisalign system because it requires fitting brackets and wires. Both systems require bi-monthly visits with the dentist to make adjustments. However, Six Month Smiles® works in an average of six months while Invisalign takes 12 months or longer to straighten teeth.
What is Involved in the Six Month Smiles® Process?
During the consultation, your dentist will examine your teeth and take x-rays to determine the best ways to move them into their correct positions. Once this is determined, the team at All Smiles Dentistry will attach the brackets, thread the wires, and make sure everything fits comfortably. You will also be given care instructions regarding brushing and information on what foods to avoid.
