Six Month Smile FAQ
Q: How can teeth be straightened in only six months with adult braces?
A: The Six Month Smiles technique employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely with clear adult braces. The key components of the treatment are the use of unique, clear braces and a primary focus of moving the teeth that show when you smile.
Q: Six months sounds good, but will I still have a mouth full of metal braces for the whole time?
A: No! Six Month Smiles uses clear braces that are barely visible to gently straighten your teeth.
Q: How are Six Month Smiles braces more comfortable than regular braces?
A: Six Month Smiles uses low force to move teeth gently. Many people think that the accelerated braces treatment means simply “tightening” regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. Six Month Smiles utilises standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.
Q: Do Six Month Smiles braces damage the teeth, roots, or gums?
A: There are no more risks of root damage or other issues than those associated with traditional orthodontics. Since the forces used with Six Month Smiles braces are lighter and teeth are seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved with Six Month Smiles.
Q: Will I have to wear a retainer?
A: Yes, as with any teeth-straightening treatment a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. If you don’t want to wear a removable retainer, you can have a bonded retainer placed. There are a variety of options that you can choose from according to your personal preference and situation.
Q: What's the catch?
A: There is no catch. If you are an adult (15 years and older) with crooked or spaced teeth and you're not looking for a major alteration to your bite, this could be the solution for you! Most adults ARE candidates for Six Month Smiles.
Inman Aligner – Straight Teeth System
This system uses a removable spring loaded aligner that gently but continuously applies pressure to the teeth. Teeth can be straighter in as little as 4-16 weeks. After you initial visit where impressions will be taken you will be asked to return to the practice every two weeks to review your progress. At the end of the treatment a retainer will be placed to keep your teeth in their new position.
This system is perfect as you are able to remove the appliance, and works so quickly if worn for the allotted time.
The Inman Aligner is designed to correct adult relapse and misaligned teeth. It is barely visible, apart from a single clear wire, and it is a removable orthodontic appliance, allowing the wearer to go brace-free for important occasions. Similar to a retainer but has advantages over a retainer:
- Can correct moderate crowding and rotation of teeth
- More comfortable to wear as the spring is made of nickel titanium rather than stainless steel
- No retention problems
It also has advantages over Invisalign:
- Less hassle and expense in a shorter period of time
- Achieve great results with just one appliance
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Inman Aligner utilises a lingual coil spring that puts pressure at the back of the teeth that need repositioning and a bar that is placed across the front of the teeth reverses the same pressure. These components work together to "squeeze" teeth together by pushing and pulling them into alignment.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Fitting the aligner takes one half hour appointments, followed by bi-weekly 15-minute check-ups. Treatment can be achieved between 8 to 16 weeks.
DOES IT HURT?
Patients may find they need to take mild painkillers for the first week or so. Like anything foreign to your mouth, it may cause you to salivate more than usual for 24 to 48 hours and could affect your speech for 7 to 10 days.
IS THE INMAN ALIGNER NEW?
Patients have been treated with Inman Aligners since 2000. In the United States approximately 450 to 500 new patients are prescribed treatment with Inman Aligners every month.
IS THE INMAN ALIGNER COMPARABLE TO INVISALIGN?
No, the Inman Aligner is used for treating the top and bottom front teeth only. Invisalign can treat full arches (all your teeth).
WILL TREATMENT WITH THE INMAN ALIGNER BE UNCOMFORTABLE?
No. Due to the gentle but steady orthodontic forces generated, the appliances are easily tolerated. Your dentist may suggest aspirin for the 1st few days of treatment if you encounter any discomfort.
WILL THE INMAN ALIGNER AFFECT MY SPEECH?
Yes. The Inman Aligner will affect your speech for a week or two. You will however acclimate to the appliances over time and be able to speak fine with them in place.
WILL I NEED TO SEE THE DENTIST FREQUENTLY FOR ADJUSTMENTS?
The Inman Aligners are pre-programmed to reduce the need for office visits. Your dentist will prescribe a treatment due to your needs
