Advantages of SureSmile Treatment

Our doctors provide SureSmile clear aligners due to their proven and predictable results. They offer comparable results to braces but provide a clear and more discreet option. Patients in need of moderate correction who undergo this advanced orthodontic treatment receive a wide range of benefits, including:

Excellent Aesthetic Results

SureSmile aligners are manufactured with the aid of advanced software to ensure each tray is a precise fit. This allows them to achieve precise tooth movements, resulting in a symmetrical, beautiful smile.

Shorter Treatment Time

Because of the precise fit, SureSmile aligners can cut overall treatment times for mild to moderate misalignment compared to treatment with braces at an orthodontist's office.

Long-Lasting Results

When the patient uses a retainer as directed following treatment, the results can last a lifetime. It is important to follow post-treatment instructions to maintain a gorgeous smile.

A Healthier Smile

Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean, which provides important long-term oral health benefits. Because the aligners are removable, it is easier to maintain oral hygiene throughout the treatment process.

SureSmile vs. Invisalign

SureSmile: Advanced Clear Aligner Technology

For patients with more serious misalignment issues, SureSmile has developed advanced and customized orthodontic materials that are created using 3-D imaging, treatment planning software, and robotic manufacturing tools.

The average length of treatment using SureSmile is six months. Because of this shortened timeline, you can look forward to fewer office visits.

Many patients also report that SureSmile aligners are more comfortable than Invisalign.

Invisalign

Invisalign clear aligners gradually move the teeth into their desired positions over the course of a year. Because the treatment time is generally longer, the cost of treatment is also usually more expensive than SureSmile.

Many patients find that Invisalign trays have a more opaque appearance and are thus more noticeable than SureSmile's clear aligners.

When you look at all the information available, it's easy to see why we prefer SureSmile clear aligners at our Merritt Island practice.

Am I a Candidate for SureSmile Technology?

Candidates for orthodontic treatments are in good oral health (free of decay and gum disease) but suffer from misalignment. Often, these individuals have:

  • Misaligned teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Poor teeth alignment (malocclusion)

During your consultation at our Merritt Island dental practice, one of our doctors will determine if you are a suitable candidate for clear aligners or if we should refer you to an orthodontist for treatment with braces.

How Will My Treatment Plan Progress?

Trays should be worn for at least 22 hours per day.

Digital Imaging

We will begin with a thorough examination to ensure you are a good candidate and then take digital impressions.

Treatment Plan

Your treatment plan and the design of each aligner will be done with our sophisticated software program.

Fabrication

Using special robotic tools, the lab will craft each set of aligners to fit precisely over your teeth and move them into alignment.

Start Treatment

Patients who receive clear aligner treatments will be given several pairs of trays that are to be worn for at least 22 hours per day. They should be removed when eating or drinking.

Switching Aligners

Your teeth will slowly adjust to the aligners. So every few weeks, you will switch to the next set of clear trays in the series to continue straightening your teeth.

Office Visits

One of our doctors will schedule periodic visits to our office so your progress can be monitored. These visits are less frequent than typical appointments with an orthodontist for braces, saving you time and making treatment more convenient.

Completing Treatment

Once you have gone through all of your aligners, your teeth should be in proper alignment, resulting in a beautifully enhanced smile. The last set of aligners is used as a retainer until it needs to be replaced.
