Millions of adults wish they had straighter teeth. Not only are well-aligned teeth more attractive, but they also contribute to oral health. However, if your teeth are not in their proper positions, you might hesitate to seek orthodontic care because you dislike the idea of having metal brackets and wires in your mouth for months on end. SureSmile® Aligners may be the ideal solution for you. This advanced orthodontic system can gently move your teeth without subjecting you to the inconveniences of traditional braces.
What Are SureSmile® Aligners?
SureSmile® Aligners are an innovative clear aligner system. A series of removable, clear, custom aligners will be crafted for you. You’ll wear each aligner for as much time as possible for a couple of weeks before you graduate to the next aligner. Each aligner will bring your teeth a little closer to their perfect positions. Once you work your way through all of your aligners, a retainer will help you keep your new smile in place
SureSmile®’s advanced software ensures that your teeth move in the most efficient, anatomically correct way possible. This contributes to predictable, high-quality results. This is in contrast to DIY clear aligner systems, which often require patients to take their own dental molds and may actually end up worsening dental alignment over time.
Efficient Tooth Movements
SureSmile® treatment plans are developed with the goal of giving you a straighter smile in the shortest possible amount of time. During your consultation, we’ll give you an estimate for how long your specific treatment plan will take. For mild cases of misalignment, it might take just six months to achieve final results. For more severe cases, treatment may last 1 – 2 years.
No Dietary Restrictions
The ability to remove your aligners means that you can eat whatever you want without worrying about compromising your orthodontic treatment. However, keep in mind that when you are wearing SureSmile®, the only thing you should consume is plain water; you wouldn’t want to accidentally stain or damage your aligners.
Easy Oral Hygiene
You will not have to navigate around any brackets and wires when you are brushing and flossing your teeth. In fact, you’ll be able to use the same oral hygiene techniques you usually do. The biggest difference in your routine will be the need to regularly clean your aligners.
No Metal Parts
SureSmile®’s metal-free nature means that people with metal sensitivities or allergies have no reason to worry. Plus, there are no annoying metal brackets and wires to irritate the soft tissues in your mouth. Because the aligners are made with state-of-the-art materials, you can expect them to feel as comfortable as possible.
