Six Month Smiles

Woman smiling with braces and a perfect smileAt Classic Smiles, we understand the importance of quick, affordable, and comfortable orthodontic treatment. That is why we specialize in a relatively new concept known as "Six Month Smiles." Six Month Smiles is a part of short-term orthodontics, a growing trend in the field.

What Is Six Month Smiles?

Six Month Smiles is a treatment concept that focuses on fixing the teeth in your visible smile line. The appliance is similar to traditional braces, consisting of brackets, ligatures, and thin metal wires. However, the brackets used with Six Month Smiles are usually clear, with a wire that is hard to see as well.

Who Qualifies for Six Month Smiles?

During your consultation, Dr. Susanne or Dr. Mikal will be able to determine if you are a good candidate for Six Month Smiles. This may involve taking x-rays, oral and facial pictures, and an impression of your teeth.

Because the appliance is only designed to move your visible teeth, patients with complex malocclusions (misaligned bites) may not qualify. However, this type of treatment may be suitable for some mild to moderate problems, some of which include:
•  Crowded teeth
•  Overlapping teeth
•  Rotated teeth
•  Spaced teeth
•  A crooked midline
•  Other asymmetries
•  Reverse smile lines

Many of our adult patients prefer Six Month Smiles, due to the discreet appliance and incredible treatment times. If you are concerned with the cosmetics of your smile and want to avoid the stigma of traditional braces, Six Month Smiles may be right for you!

How Does Six Month Smiles Work?

Your impression will be used to create a 3D model of your mouth. The model allows us to determine the precise placement of each bracket, and supply you with an effective appliance. At a follow-up appointment, we use a special adhesive to bond the brackets to the front surface of your teeth.

In many cases, the brackets come positioned inside a custom-designed tray, allowing us to place them exactly where they need to be. Once the brackets are in place, we will attach a thin archwire to link the teeth together.

You may experience some minor discomfort once we set your appliance. This should subside within a few days. After your initial placement appointment, we will ask you to visit our office every four or five weeks.

During your follow-up appointment, Dr. Susanne I. Baaqee, D.M.D. will tighten the archwire and make the appropriate adjustments. Most follow-ups are relatively short. Once your treatment is complete, we will remove your appliance.

Benefits of Six Month Smiles

Of course, the biggest benefit of Six Month Smiles is a reduced treatment time. As the name suggests, you should be finished with treatment in about six months. Treatment with traditional braces takes around 12 to 18 months, depending on the severity of your issues.

Six Month Smiles is also a cost-effective option. A faster treatment time results in fewer appointments and less opportunity for expensive damages. In many cases, Six Month Smiles is less expensive than more comprehensive orthodontic treatment.
