The Six Month Smiles system is a short-term orthodontic treatment. The goals of the system is a bit less comprehensive than with many traditional orthodontic situations. Specifically, the aim of the Six Month Smiles system is correcting issues that relate to the dental patient's main complaints about their orthodontic issues. Oftentimes, these complaints involved spaced teeth, crooked teeth and/or crowded teeth. In many cases, all of these can be corrected easily with the system in just about six months. That's why the system is also referred to as short-term, chief complaint driven and cosmetically focused orthodontics.
What is Lucid-Lok?
Six Month Smiles Lucid-LokÂ® Brackets are clear (colorless) with a unique design. They allow your dentist to help you achieve orthodontic goals with short-term treatment. They are much more precise and efficient that traditional wire braces. Their off-sets, in-out dimensions and angulations are more specifically designed for cases that focus on the cosmetic aspects of dentistry. Because they are clear and translucent, they blend very well with the surrounding teeth.
Six Month Smiles Lucid-LokÂ® Wires have a shape memory technology. They are also tooth-colored, making them almost invisible. They provide the teeth with a consistent amount of force, with levels that align and straighten the teeth. They have a unique archform that provides just the right arch levels, minimizing the need for more invasive and painful dental procedures.
