Six Month Smiles is a type of bracket and wire orthodontic treatment for straightening the front upper and lower teeth in approximately six months, although treatment times vary depending on individual misalignment problems. This type of treatment is sometimes referred to as "short-term orthodontics."

Interceptive Ortho

Interceptive Orthodontics identifies children’s teeth that are coming in crooked or crowded, usually by the age of 7. This is the best time to begin to correct problems such as dental crowding, too much space between teeth, protruding teeth and extra or missing teeth and sometimes jaw growth problems. Early dental treatment can reduce the time and sometimes eliminate the need for braces later on.

Ortho-Tain

Ortho-Tain® is a maker of orthodontic appliances and offers doctors and patients the ability to straighten teeth without braces. For patients as young as age 5, Ortho-Tain® offers a preventative solution for straightening their teeth and removing the need for fixed treatment later in life. The science of Interceptive Orthodontics means that your child does not have to endure years of discomfort, shyness or embarrassment during their school years due to wearing traditional braces. Ortho-Tain® also offers adult appliances proven to correct much more than just cosmetic flaws in a minimal amount of time and at a fraction of the cost. Prevention with Ortho-Tain® products is the most cost-effective and least intrusive method of providing affordable orthodontics for children and adults.
