Our Invisible Aligners are made with exceptional clarity. They are barely visible close up or far away. Patients want them!
Digital scans accepted from any scanner (3Shape, iTero, Carestream, etc.) as well as Analog Impressions.
Cases evaluated & treatment planned by an Orthodontist. No machines or technicians which result in fewer refinements.
Remember, average treatment time is only 6-10 months. It's worth it! There are thousands of incredible stories by real patients.
After you get trained, the first step is to take records on the patient (including impressions, x-rays, and a complete exam). After the records appointment, the case is submitted online and the patient’s impressions are sent to Six Month Smiles (digital or PVS). Once your case is received, our team of orthodontists will create a treatment plan and 3D simulation for you to review. After your approval of the treatment plan, our team of specialists will fabricate the case.
Aligner System: our team of specialists will print and label each aligner tray and package the items into our Aligner Patient Tray Kit. This includes a patient take home guide and bag they can use throughout treatment. Once the Patient Tray Kit has been assembled, it is returned to your office ready to use. After the initial placement of the aligners, your patient will switch out their aligner trays every 2 weeks. You will set up adjustment appointments every 2-4 weeks, depending on the patient and treatment plan. You can use the last aligner tray to order removable retainers for your patient from Six Month Smiles.
Clear Braces System: our lab specialists fabricates your custom indirect bonding tray, making bonding the braces to the patient's teeth remarkably easy, efficient and stress-free. The bonding trays, appropriate tooth-colored wires, ties, and other needed materials are packaged into our Patient Tray Kit. When the patient comes in for their braces-on appointment, the Patient Tray Kit is retrieved and the process begins. After the braces on appointment, the patient is seen every 4 weeks, for a simple adjustment visit. Once the teeth are in the final position, the braces are easily removed and adequate retention is provided. The patient is able to enjoy a smile that looks great and no longer makes them feel self-conscious. Our system is safe, straight-forward and patient focused.
When you get a Six Month Smiles Aligner case from us, you're not just getting a product, you're getting the whole package. From the moment your impressions are received, the case is carefully and thoughtfully analyzed and planned by our orthodontists. Each case is unique and our planning team approaches it this way. Not only is every case planned by orthodontists (not machines), but the material we use is incredibly clear. It is comfortable for patients and includes flexible and scalloped shaped materials. Should any questions arise after receiving the completed aligner product, our friendly customer support team will be here to help.
Our 6MS Invisible Aligners are ideal for patients with mild to moderate crowding (4-10 mm) and spaced cases (3-7 mm). Treatment generally lasts 6-10 months, and can correct anterior crossbites, but posterior crossbites can only be corrected if roots are favorably positioned. Open/deep bites can also be improved, but full resolution may require fixed appliances and elastics. No class III corrections. This product includes a maximum of 20 active aligners/arch + 2 refinements within 2 years. 6MS Relapse Aligners are ideal for patients that have relapsed and have 1-3 mm of anterior crowding/space. May also be used for finishing cases when patients no longer wish to wear braces. Includes a maximum of 10 Aligners. 6MS Mixed Appliance Cases are designed for patients with mild-moderate upper arch crowding and moderate lower arch crowding. This approach leverages Aligners (aesthetics) for upper arch and Clear Braces (speed + superior control) for the lower arch to give the best results in a short amount of time.
Our Six Month Smiles Invisible Aligner Patient Tray Kit includes the following: Aligner trays prepackaged in easy tear off bags; Aligner template for bonding attachments; a patient bag with chewies, remover key, cleaner brush, cleaning tablet, case with mirror, floss pick, and lip balm.
