When teeth are misaligned, they can cause a variety of issues. Malocclusions can impact the appearance of the smile, but they also make it harder to clean teeth and impact the function of the jaw. Orthodontics is a dental specialty that focuses on improving bite and tooth alignment for a healthier, more attractive smile. At Liberty Lake Smile Source, we offer advanced options in orthodontic treatment for teens and adults at our dental center in Liberty Lake, WA.

Genetics, health, injuries and childhood habits can all affect bite and tooth alignment. Children’s tooth growth should be monitored from the time the first baby tooth arrives to determine if orthodontic treatment is needed. It is estimated that almost half of adolescents or teens have a misaligned bite and should have orthodontic treatment, but up to 75% can benefit from teeth straightening.

Adults also need orthodontic treatment. Many adults did not receive orthodontic treatment as a teen and want to straighten their smile. Others may have had braces when younger but did not maintain their smile by wearing a retainer. About 20% of orthodontic patients are adults who are ready to improve their smile and oral health.

Orthodontic Treatment Options

At Liberty Lake Smile Source, we offer a variety of orthodontic treatments that are designed to be less invasive than traditional braces. While metal braces are effective, they can also be unattractive and uncomfortable. Our dentists can evaluate you or your child’s teeth and alignment to determine what treatment options are available for your needs. Our dental center offers different treatments that can achieve a straighter, healthier smile, including:

  • Clear Braces
  • Invisalign®
  • Six Month Smiles®

With the right orthodontics, a straight, beautiful smile is possible. We have options that are very discreet, almost invisible, as well as quick solutions to shorten the orthodontic treatment time.

Six Month Smiles

Do you want a new, straighter smile but you do not want to spend a year or longer in aligners or braces? Six Months Smiles is designed for people who want to quickly straighten crooked teeth for an improved smile appearance. Our dental team at Liberty Lake Smile Source offers Six Month Smiles as one of our orthodontic treatments, available at our dental center in Liberty Lake, WA.

What is Six Month Smiles? This orthodontic treatment uses braces or aligners to adjust and straighten the visible teeth in about six months. The difference between this treatment and traditional aligners or braces is the teeth affected. Six Month Smiles focuses on the front teeth, not adjusting the back molars, which take longer to shift. Six Month Smiles is geared toward adults that want to straighten teeth for a more attractive smile, versus teens or adults with severe malocclusions or bite misalignments.

Straight Teeth In Six Months

Six Months Smiles offers a faster way to achieve a straight smile. The clear braces or aligners can fix gapped, crowded or crooked teeth, improving the appearance and health of your smile. The treatment is available for patients 16 years of age or older that have mild to moderate orthodontic issues affecting the front teeth. The braces or aligners are discreet, using clear plastic or components to make them almost invisible. The average treatment time is six months, so some people may get results in less or more than six months.

Six Month Smiles is a great option for many patients that want to improve their smile without years of wearing braces or aligners. Not only is the treatment time shorter, but it is usually more cost-effective, too.
