Do Six Month Smiles Braces Require Extra Maintenance?
Six Month Smiles utilizes a special wire that gradually straightens on it’s own. This means less maintenance for you as you may not need to go through the uncomfortable tightening sessions you might experience at the orthodontist.

No. The braces hold snugly in place like traditional metal braces. You won’t need to worry about losing or misplacing them – or worry about your child losing or misplacing them.
What Level of Comfort Can I Expect With Six Month Smiles?
Because the pressure exerted in the Six Month Smiles treatment is slow and steady, the discomfort is muted compared to traditional braces adjustments you may experience at the orthodontist.
