Benefits of Six Month Smiles Provided by St. Paul Invisible Braces Dentist

by | Date Published:

The Six Month Smiles system is a great way achieve your goal of a perfectly aligned smile in a relatively short period of time. Whether you’re getting ready for a special event or just want to finally fix your crooked smile, Six Months Smiles provided by the St. Paul Invisible Braces Dentist can quickly produce positive results – often in as little as six months.

How is it possible for Six Month Smiles to work so quickly?

Six Month Smiles can straighten your teeth in such a short amount of time because the system does not work on correcting the bite in your back teeth like traditional braces do.

The teeth that show when you smile move at a faster rate than your back teeth, so our dentist is finished with your treatment once the front teeth are positioned in a cosmetically pleasing arrangement. The rate of movement is the same as with traditional braces, but the total treatment time is faster.

What do Six Month Smiles braces look like?

The Six Month Smiles treatment system works with clear wire and tooth-colored brackets that blend naturally with your teeth. Many adult and teenage patients choose Six Month Smiles orthodontics because they don’t have to wait for years while wearing shiny metallic braces that mar their appearance.

How does Six Months Smiles differ from Invisalign?

Both Invisalign and Six Month Smiles provide you with a discreet option for correcting misaligned teeth. The main difference is that Six Month Smiles orthodontics consist of clear wire and tooth-colored brackets that blend with your natural teeth.

Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic resin and are virtually invisible when worn. Many adults and teenage patients are comfortable with either of these options. But it really depends on the individual needs and desired goal of the treatment.

NuCalm®

Get the Relaxing, Comfortable Dental Treatment You Need With All-Natural NuCalm®!

NuCalm®, what’s that?

NuCalm® a completely natural relaxation protocol that helps dental patients remain comfortable during dental treatment. After using NuCalm® patients leave our office feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

How does it work?

NuCalm® treatment combines a few different techniques to relax the patient. The purpose of NuCalm® is to coax the patient into the first stage of sleep. NuCalm® is designed to shift brain waves from high frequency beta brain waves (wakefulness) to lower frequency alpha/theta waves (deep relaxation).

What exactly happens during treatment?

There are four consecutive steps to NuCalm®:

  • First you’ll take a dietary supplement. This supplement helps to counteract the effects of adrenaline in your body.
  • Next, our dental team will attach small microcurrent stimulation patches behind your ears. Low-level electrical currents facilitate your body’s relaxation response.
  • Then, you’ll put on a pair of noise-dampening headphones. These headphones play soothing music that has been optimized calming neuroacoustic tones. As you listen to these sounds, you’ll fall deeper into a stage of pre-sleep.
  • The final step is for you to put on light blocking glasses. These glasses are so important—they help you block out distractions and potentially stressful stimuli!

It takes only moments for the effects of NuCalm® to kick in—you’ll notice the difference right away!

Why choose NuCalm®?

Dental patients of all ages choose NuCalm® because it:

  • Is effective
  • Is completely natural
  • Starts working in minutes
  • Doesn’t include any medications or narcotics
  • Does not require the patient to receive injections
  • Does not incapacitate you physically or mentally (you’re never unconscious)
  • Is free from side effects—you won’t have to wait for the effects to wear off post-treatment
  • Is relaxing and rejuvenating

NuCalm® is suitable for all kinds of dental patients, and it is great for those people who avoid dental treatment due to fear and anxiety.
