Six Month Smiles®
While similar to traditional metal braces, Six Month Smiles® is an accelerated orthodontic system, designed to produce results within six months. In order to correct the positioning of your smile, these braces utilize clear brackets and tooth-colored wires. With easily adjustable components, Dr. Bill Schlosser is able to tailor this treatment to suit your individual needs. The materials and gentle movement used in Six Month Smiles® offer efficient and safe movement of the teeth, enhancing the proven mechanism used by traditional braces. Our patients simply love this method!
Ideal candidates for Six Month Smiles® include patients with minor alignment issues who have not previously received orthodontic treatment or whose teeth have moved since orthodontic treatment earlier in life. The benefits of dental alignment through Six Month Smiles®, include not only improved aesthetics, but, where needed, improved outcomes for other restorations, including dental implant placement.
The Inman Aligner™
Comparable to a retainer, the Inman Aligner™ is form fit to create optimal alignment for your unique smile in a short time. This advanced oral appliance makes use of spring technology to move teeth into place. In six to 18 weeks, this discreet option improves alignment, whether used on the upper or lower arch. The Inman Aligner™ is removable, allowing patients additional freedom should they wish to go without it for selected, short periods of time...like photo shoots. Although convenient to remove, our Springfield dentist recommends patients wear aligners at least 20 hours a day to obtain lasting benefits from this treatment.
Smart Moves® Clear Aligners
Minor tooth misalignment is easily corrected with removable clear aligners. Smart Moves® is an invisible aligner system which is made in a trusted lab using patients’ impressions. The series of aligners are customized to individual smiles, creating a unique treatment plan for those who qualify. Patients wear a set of aligners for two to three weeks each, replacing them with the next customized set in the series. Daily life is undisturbed with Smart Moves®, and patients can enjoy eating, laughing, and smiling with confidence.
Facing Orthodontic Relapse? Our Springfield Dental Practice Can Help
In some cases, adults who have undergone orthodontic treatment find that their teeth have gradually returned to a misaligned position. Potential causes for this relapse can vary, from neglecting to wear a retainer to delayed jaw growth or tooth loss. Depending upon the situation, Six Month Smiles®, the Inman Aligner™ or clear aligners can quickly reposition the smile. Dr. Schlosser can help restore a beautiful smile once attained through orthodontics.
