SureSmile Clear Aligners are created by your doctor and our Digital Lab Specialist, to help provide and an individualized treatment plan that is comfortable and satisfies your needs-your ideal smile is closer than you think.
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 orthodontist.
Less soreness and discomfort.
More accurate, better results.
Shorter treatment times.
How can SureSmile® help me?
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® braces are ordered.
The first stage of orthodontic treatment involves planning. A three-dimensional model of the teeth will be created using a Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) device. The images available to the dentist are remarkably sharp and show the exact position of every tooth, root, nerve and blood vessel.
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.
When the treatment has been fully planned, it is time for the SureSmile® robot to create the prescription braces. The SureSmile® robot engineers a series of clear aligner trays to gently assert constant pressure on the teeth to move them into the desired position.
