Social 6™ Lingual Braces

What is the Social 6™ lingual brace system?

Social 6™ is a lingual brace system where the brackets are attached to the back side of your teeth to provide you with a virtually unnoticeable straightening treatment. This technique focuses on the social six teeth or the area that is visible when you smile.

Why do patients choose Social 6™ braces?

The brackets involved in the Social 6™ technique are small and sit behind the teeth. As the braces are hidden by the teeth, they can discreetly straighten teeth.

The Social 6™ braces are lightweight and custom-made for every patient, so they can experience a more comfortable orthodontic treatment.

Who is suitable for a Social 6™ brace treatment?

This lingual brace treatment is suitable for patients with minor or moderate orthodontic problems. Social 6™ braces can address anterior overcrowding or gaps between the front teeth.

How does the Social 6™ brace system work?

Social 6™ braces utilise light forces to effectively straighten teeth. Due to the system’s self-ligating technological design, uncomfortable friction is significantly reduced while the treatment process is accelerated.

At an initial consultation, our practitioners at Etwall Dental Practice will assess your teeth and oral conditions. If you are a suitable candidate, our team will take x-rays and photographs. An oral impression will also be made to fabricate your bespoke Social 6™ braces.

In the follow-up appointment, the braces will be bonded to your teeth. Subsequent adjustment sessions will be scheduled every four to six weeks. The treatment duration depends on the severity of the case and can be discussed during your initial consultation.

After your teeth have been aligned and straightened, the braces will be detached by your orthodontist. Retainers will be provided to prevent the teeth from relapsing to their previous position.

All orthodontic packages include FREE end of treatment fixed and removable retainers, take home teeth whitening and enamel contouring.

COVID-19 update

Many of you will be aware that during the latest Covid 19 update dental practices have been given the green light to re-open the surgery from 8th June. Whilst this is good news, there are a number of procedures that we have being putting in place to make treatment safe for our patients and staff, as we are sure you will appreciate, this is taking some time to set up.

Our intention is, if at all possible to commence opening on the 8th June but this is entirely dependent on our ability to obtain training and appropriate PPE which as you know there is a great shortage of. This equipment will be essential for us to be able to operate.

From 8th- 29th of June we will be prioritising the most urgent of cases including those who have been experiencing problems during this lockdown period. We will contact you directly to arrange an appointment. This period may be extended if required.

Rest assured we are trying our utmost to source this PPE as soon as possible to enable us to extend our treatment further to include fillings, crown/bridge work, root treatments and surgical extractions, scale & polish ect.

We anticipate that it will be several weeks before we will be able to commence these more advanced procedures.

This is a rapidly changing environment which we are adapting to as quickly as we possibly can. We really appreciate your patience and understanding throughout this difficult period and look forward to welcoming you back to the practice soon.
