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.
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.
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.
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.
