Six Month Smiles® is a modern approach to orthodontic treatment for patients. Technology is combined with aspects of braces to align teeth within a time frame of approximately six months. It helps to correct dental problems like bite conditions, overcrowding, and gaps between the teeth. Cozy Cabin Dental recommends Six Month Smiles for patients who are looking for immediate results.

Who Would Need Six Month Smiles®?
The patient should be 15 years old or older for them to qualify for this treatment. The treatment is for the correction of dental abnormalities like misalignment of the teeth, overlapping of the teeth, or bite conditions like overbite, underbite, or crossbite, so the patient is expected to have one or more of these conditions.
The Two Types of Treatment of Six Month Smiles® and Their Procedures
There are two types of Six Month Smiles®: Clear braces and invisible aligners. Both begin with Our dentist evaluating the dental condition. Then, impressions of the teeth are made using digital imaging systems. Depending on the recommended treatment, the procedure will continue thus:
Clear braces:The impressions will be used as a guide in affixing the clear brackets, after which tooth-colored wires will be threaded through them and secured. The patient then regularly visits the dentist to tighten the braces over six months. By the sixth month, the braces will be removed and the patient is provided a retainer. It should be worn to avoid the teeth from moving back to their original position.
Invisible aligners: The impressions of the teeth will be used to fabricate the aligners out of Zendura® FLX™ material for a more comfortable fit. Once done, the dentist will give you the aligners with instructions on how to use and maintain them.
Six Month Smiles® realigns the teeth in a shorter time than traditional braces or aligners. It is an excellent approach that is personalized to meet the specific requirements of the patient.
