 Braces and Aligners, Guided Orthodontics

Considering adding guided orthodontics to your practise is not a decision taken lightly. When you're ready to make the leap, feel confident that there's no need to go to different companies for different needs. Six Month Smiles does both, so we're treatment agnostic. 6MS provides Aligners when you want them and Clear Braces when you need them™. Either way you know your patients are getting the best. Period. 

We're here for you, the GDP

The Six Month Smiles® (6MS) guided orthodontic system equips you, the General Dentist to help your adult patients with crooked teeth, spaced cases, crowded cases, rotations, deep bites, creating spaces for implants and setting up cosmetic cases. 

We use aligners and unique clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires to resolve the patient’s chief complaint. We can seamlessly switch between aligners and braces making it easier than ever to give your patient the smile they have always dreamt about.
