Ortho

At Six Sigma Dental, we offer two ortho treatment options: Invisalign and Six Month Smiles.

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces. Invisalign® uses a series of clear, nearly undetectable, removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. It has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthodontic practices nationwide.

How Does Invisalign® Work?

You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position Dr. Naba has prescribed. You’ll visit Dr. Naba about once every 2-4 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.

Why Invisalign®?
Invisalign® can help you get the great smile you’ve always wanted because it’s…

  • Invisible, so no one can tell you’re straightening your teeth. Now you can smile proudly during treatment as well as after.
  • Removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. In addition, it makes brushing and flossing a cinch!
  • Comfortable, because it has no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments.
  • BONUS: Invisalign® also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start, so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete!

Can Invisalign® work for you?

There are Invisalign® success stories for all kinds of cases. For the most part, Invisalign® can correct problems with overcrowding, spacing, and crooked teeth. After consulting with Dr. Naba, she will let you know if Invisalign® is right for you.

How do I start?

In order to know whether Invisalign® will work for you, give us a call at (704) 845-0500 or schedule your free consultation. During the consultation, we will further inform you on the technique, how it works, pricing, and if it is the right choice of treatment for you. Pricing varies depending on the severity of your case, and the length of treatment.

Invisalign® is a type of ortho treatment that straightens teeth with custom clear aligners. Here is a before and after photo of one of our Six Sigma patients after her Invisalign® treatment.

Six Month Smiles®

Six Month Smiles® are clear, ceramic braces which are aesthetically pleasing to those who are worried about wearing embarrassing metal braces. Not only are the brackets clear, but Six Month Smiles also uses tooth-colored wires, too! These braces are barely noticeable to others.

Six Month Smiles are revolutionary. The tooth-colored, nickel titanium wires provide the low force needed to move teeth. This teeth-straightening system focuses on moving the teeth that are visible when you smile and not correcting your bite pattern. This goal and the innovative materials used allow for the average treatment time to last only six months!

Six Month Smiles® is ideal for adults (16+) with crooked, spaced, or misaligned teeth. The average treatment time is 6 MONTHS.

There are two types of treatment available: Invisible aligners and Clear braces.

Invisible Aligners

Invisible aligners are made with the world’s most advanced Aligner material, 6MS Invisible Aligners flex against your teeth and moves them gently. The result is greater comfort during treatment.

Our Invisible Aligners are made with exceptional clarity. They are barely visible close up or far away

Our Aligners use Zendura® FLX™ (similar to memory foam properties) with flexible and scalloped shaped materials that comfortably fit your unique teeth shapes.

Our trained Dentists focus on the teeth that show when you smile. Treatment is then focused on those specific treatment goals. 

Our trained Dentists work with Orthodontic specialists to plan the best course of treatment for your specific needs.

Clear Braces

Using clear brackets and tooth colored wires, you can have the smile you’ve always wanted in just 6 MONTHS.

Our Braces are barely noticeable, especially from a close or far distance. We use discreet clear brackets and tooth colored wires.
