What does treatment involve?
- Initial Consultation: To commence the 6 Month Smiles® treatment journey, the initial stage involves scheduling an appointment for a thorough consultation with a certified 6 Month Smiles® provider. During this visit, X-rays, photographs, and impressions may be captured to facilitate meticulous treatment planning.
- Customized Treatment Plan: Drawing from the examination results, the orthodontist will craft an individualized treatment plan that precisely caters to the patient’s unique needs and goals. During this phase, the orthodontist will outline the anticipated outcome, provide an estimate of the treatment duration, and attentively address any queries or apprehensions expressed by the patient.
- Bracket and Wire Placement: After the treatment plan has been solidified, the orthodontist will commence the process of placing brackets and wires. Employing a tooth-colored bracket system, the orthodontist will meticulously affix the brackets to the front teeth. These discreet brackets seamlessly blend in with the natural tooth color, ensuring a harmonious and inconspicuous appearance.
- Regular Adjustment Visits: Throughout the 6 Month Smiles® treatment, patients will have regular adjustment visits with their orthodontist. These visits typically occur every 4-5 weeks to monitor progress and make necessary adjustments. During each visit, the orthodontist may replace or adjust the wires, ensuring optimal tooth movement and alignment.
- Oral Hygiene and Care: Maintaining proper oral hygiene is crucial during the 6 Month Smiles® treatment process. Patients should diligently brush their teeth after meals and floss daily to keep their teeth and braces clean.
- Final Stage and Retention: As the treatment approaches its conclusion, the orthodontist will evaluate the progress and determine any final adjustments necessary. Once the desired alignment is attained, the orthodontist will carefully remove the brackets and wires.
