Traditional orthodontics, as most often performed by an orthodontist, seeks to achieve a “text book” and ideal Class 1 finish. This usually includes significant changes such as Angle class changes, transverse arch development and significant midline changes, if needed. When performed properly, these results can look fantastic but the treatment usually takes longer than two years to achieve.
Short-term orthodontics with the Six Month Smiles System involves treatment goals that are vast in scope but not as comprehensive as most traditional orthodontic cases. Specifically, with the Six Month Smiles System, the aim is to correct teeth straightening issues that deal with the patient’s chief orthodontic complaints. This is often crowded teeth, crooked teeth, or spaced teeth. These complaints can often be easily corrected in about six months with the system. This is why Six Month Smiles if often referred to as cosmetically-focused, chief complaint driven, short-term orthodontics. The results speak for themselves and the patient satisfaction is tremendous.
The Six Month Smiles system utilises unique clear Lucid-Lock brackets and wires that are specific for short-term orthodontic treatment goals. Lucid-Lok brackets are designed with the Swain prescription and their uniquely clear translucency blends seamlessly with the surrounding tooth structure. Lucid-Lok wires are tooth-colored shape memory wires that are highly active and provide consistent force levels to gently straighten and align teeth.
