Get Straight Teeth in Less Time with Six Month Smiles!
For some of Rodeo Dental’s adult patients, the idea of wearing braces for two or three years to straighten the teeth is unappealing. In addition, the cost of traditional orthodontics treatment can be out of reach for some. So we are excited to offer Six Month Smiles® as a faster, less expensive option for patients who need mild orthodontics treatment to close gaps or fix crooked teeth.
What is Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles is a type of hybrid orthodontics treatment that focuses on straightening only the teeth that are visible when you smile. It uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires that are much less noticeable than metal braces, and are much more attractive to adult patients.
Six Month Smiles has an average treatment time of six months. It uses a low amount of force to move the visible teeth into a straight position and is generally less expensive than traditional braces, Invisalign, or veneers. It is offered specifically for patients ages 16 years and up.
Considerations for Six Month Smiles Treatment
Six Month Smiles has both advantages and disadvantages over traditional orthodontics treatment. The advantages include:
Shorter treatment time
Gentle tooth movement
Less noticeable brackets/wires
Low risk of tooth or gum damage
The primary disadvantage of Six Month Smiles is that it emphasizes cosmetic appearance, meaning it only fixes crooked teeth or space between the teeth. So this type of treatment does not correct bite issues and other orthodontics problems that would be resolved with traditional braces or Invisalign treatment.
