Kelly's Six Month Smiles® Story #3

Posted by 6monthsmiles on Jun 23, 2015 11:14:00 AM

Hey all, it's Kelly! Today is the day! After years of crooked and crowded lower teeth, I'll be receiving Six Month Smile Clear Braces. Finally, the smile I've always wanted. I can't wait!

I woke up excited, indulged in some chips & salsa and made my way into my appointment. (I won't be having chips for a few months, so I figured - better get the last bit in!)

Kelly's Six Month Smiles® Story #2

Posted by 6monthsmiles on May 28, 2015 11:07:00 AM

Hi! It's Kelly. In my first blog I talked about how I’m tired of my crooked, crowded lower teeth. Recently I made the decision to use Six Month Smiles Clear Braces. I'm 40 years old and ready to gain confidence through my smile. Achieving my goal within a few months is very appealing to me. 

I just had another great appointment at the dentist, my second visit. The first visit was the initial consultation, and yesterday I returned. I wasn’t really sure what to expect for this visit, but I knew it wouldn't be the day I’d get the braces.

Hi! My name is Kelly and I’m getting tired of my crooked, crowded lower teeth. I've finally made the decision, it's time to do something about it. I'm 40 years old and take pretty good care of the rest of myself, but these teeth need some attention now too! I checked into other options and decided in favor of Six Month Smiles, because getting this done and over with in a few months is very appealing to me. 

I've been given the unique opportunity to share my Six Month Smiles journey with you. Stay up to date on this blog as I share periodic updates. I'm hoping future patients and dentists alike can learn from my experience.

Teeth Straightening. The Power of Six Month Smiles.

Posted by 6monthsmiles on May 7, 2015 12:26:00 PM

"Stacie" is 29 years old and presented with a chief complaint of wanting to address the spacing between her teeth. She had no specific concerns regarding the overjet or deep bite and had previously had a comprehensive ortho consult in which she was advised that she would require orthognathic surgery in conjunction with full fixed orthodontic treatment.

A New Six Month Smile, and A New Man

Posted by 6monthsmiles on Apr 29, 2015 4:00:49 PM

My patient came to my practice after years of dental neglect. He was 22 years old and had just started a new job in car sales. This seemed unusual because his shyness prevented him from saying more than two or three words to anyone in the office, let alone starting a conversation (no doubt made worse by a smile which he did not like). Case Study by Dr. Noel Ananthan, Six Month Smiles Clinical Instructor

Traditional Orthodontics vs. Short-Term Orthodontics

Posted by 6monthsmiles on Apr 22, 2015 12:00:00 PM

Orthodontists and orthodontic purists will certainly insist upon every tooth having to be in exactly its proper place and rotation at the close of orthodontic treatment. In the past few years, there has certainly been a movement toward a simpler orthodontic solution for those patients (mostly adults) who just want to have straighter teeth, and an improvement in occlusion, without having full-blown orthodontic treatment stretching over a 2- to 3-year period.

General Dentists and Orthodontics

Posted by 6monthsmiles on Apr 15, 2015 8:30:00 AM

By Dr. Tony Feck, Six Month Smiles Clinical Director

Six Month Smiles® education is in large part designed to take the mystery out of moving teeth. This is not meant to trivialize the discipline of orthodontics, but rather “demystify” the process so that general dentists are more capable of helping more adult patients achieve the smile they want.

[Clinical Article] Lower Incisor Extraction with Six Month Smiles®

Posted by 6monthsmiles on Apr 8, 2015 4:03:00 PM

Marcie, a 21 year old female, came to our practice hoping to improve the appearance of her smile. Her chief complaint was her crowded upper and lower incisors.

A full examination was carried out and some photographs were taken to properly assess her dentition. Marcie hadn't been to a dentist in a number of years and a certain degree of dental neglect was noted. She had a few carious teeth requiring fillings and she had extensive gingivitis due to her poor oral health.

Oh! The Things We Can Do With Teeth!

Posted by 6monthsmiles on Apr 1, 2015 2:21:00 PM

We are able to prep teeth, remove the pulps of teeth, replace missing teeth, scale teeth, remineralize teeth, remove teeth, repair teeth and some dentists involved in research are even able to grow teeth! But an ability that is lacking for most? The ability to move teeth.

[Clinical Article] Straighten Teeth with Adult Braces

Posted by 6monthsmiles on Mar 25, 2015 10:15:00 AM

 

Six Month Smiles, Adult Braces
Dr. Muhammed Kathrada

A 33 yr old female patient presented at the practice wanting veneers for 6 upper teeth. She was also aware that she grinds her teeth at night. 

Clinically she presented with a Class 2, Div 2 Malocclusion complicated by a deep overbite and asymmetrical gingival contour and after discussing
with her all the treatment options and the risks of veneers fracturing due to bruxism and the invasive preparations that would be required on her canines, she selected the Six Month Smiles® treatment option.

Her chief complaint was that she hated her "fangy" smile especially the left side.
