The SureSmile® Clear Aligners system offers quicker and more efficient treatment times than traditional dental braces. In fact, Clear Aligners can reduce the overall treatment times by as much as 40%. Though the majority of people love the thought of straight, healthy teeth, most do not relish the prospect of spending several years wearing braces. Contrary to popular belief, SureSmile® does not move the teeth more quickly. The teeth move with added precision at the same speed.
The SureSmile® technologies allow the dentist to view the teeth in 3D from every angle, and then plan treatment accordingly.
SureSmile® has many advantages over traditional dental braces, including:
Fewer visits to the office.
Less soreness and discomfort.
More accurate, better results.
Shorter treatment times.
How can SureSmile® help me?
There are many ways in which the SureSmile® system is helpful to patients. Better precision means better results and a much straighter smile. Generally, brace wearers dislike adjustment appointments because they cause pain and discomfort. Fortunately, SureSmile® is able to take most of these appointments out of the equation, and leave the teeth healthier and straighter. SureSmile® offers fantastic results to people of any age – the only prerequisite is generally healthy teeth and gums.
What does getting SureSmile® Clear Aligners involve?
Initially, the dentist will want to check the mouth for signs of decay and disease. If any irregularities are noted, they will need to be controlled before SureSmile® treatment begins.
We will take a digital scan of your mouth, which produces several images of your teeth in seconds. With Primescan™ intraoral scanner, the innovative Smart Pixel Sensor processes more than 1,000,000 3D points per second, producing a highly accurate representation of your teeth. These digital images, when uploaded to the SureSmile software, allow us to assess how clear aligners will best work for you, creating your unique treatment plan.
The dentist is able to simulate how different treatments will change the orientation of the teeth with 3D software. Every angle is examined and different approaches are considered. The software is so advanced that the dentist can use it to “look into the future” and view the final position of the bite. After submitting your case and images to SureSmile's digital lab, we work with clinical experts to define your treatment journey, assessing each tooth for optimal movement to achieve your ideal smile.
SureSmile's Digital Lab fabricates just the right number of custom-finished clear aligners to make your perfect smile one step closer. Once ready, we will schedule a quick visit for you to review your new smile plan!
Your next visit will include attaching retention buttons for your Clear Aligners if necessary, and trying in your first set of SureSmile Aligners! From here, your smile transformation begins!
