What are 6-Month Braces?

6-month braces are a modern adaptation of the classic tried and tested orthodontic treatment which has been in use for many years.

We use similar braces which can be either tooth coloured or metal finished depending on patient preference. The tooth coloured option can be compared to Invisalign braces where clear, removable aligners are used to straighten the teeth.

The traditional approach has been modified to allow us to move teeth quickly to get teeth straight in approximately six months.

Usually, this technique avoids removal of teeth and involves gentle polishing of teeth, helping them to move quickly.

What happens during Invisible Orthodontic treatment?

Multiple visits are required during the 6-month braces treatment and the entire process usually lasts six months, but in more complicated cases can last up to one year. Your dentist will first examine your teeth and discuss the possible treatment required, the length of the process, cost, and any other further necessary information.

You will then have an x-ray, photographs, and create a bite mould that will help your dentist further understand the condition of your teeth, and estimate the length of time required for the full course of treatment.

No anaesthetic is necessary at any point. Regular braces require readjustment over a period of time to maintain the pressure on your teeth, but this time is dramatically cut thanks to new advances made possible by the Six Month Braces method. Tooth tenderness when receiving new invisible braces can still occur at times, however, this is normal and will usually fade away after the teeth have begun to move. Six month braces treatment don’t require much maintenance to work effectively but do need to be cleaned regularly by brushing and flossing.

After your treatment has concluded, your dentist will examine the result, taking care to identify any future potential tooth migration problems. The chances of this are extremely rare however. All orthodontic procedures require retention at the end of the treatment to stop teeth moving out of their new position. Retention is provided as standard and is both removable and fixed.
