Benefits of SureSmile Treatments
Whether you need to correct serious or moderate misalignment, SureSmile offers unique benefits worth considering:
Our doctors provide SureSmile clear aligners due to the treatment’s proven and predictable results. Patients in need of moderate correction who undergo this advanced orthodontic treatment can benefit from:
- Excellent aesthetic results: SureSmile® Aligners are manufactured with the aid of advanced software that ensures each tray is a precise fit in order to achieve precise tooth movements resulting in a symmetrical and beautiful smile.
- Shorter treatments: When compared to treating mild to moderate misalignment with traditional dentures, SureSmile aligners can cut overall treatment times by months or longer.
- Long-lasting results: When the patient uses a retainer as directed following treatment, the results can last a lifetime.
- A healthier smile: Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean, which provides important long-term oral health benefits.
For patients with more serious alignment, SureSmile developed advanced and customized orthodontic hardware that is created using 3-D imaging, treatment planning software, and robotic manufacturing tools. The unique design of this solution has been found to reduce the overall timeline for orthodontic treatment.
These technology-driven braces involve:
- Shorter treatment timelines
- Fewer office visits
- Less overall discomfort
Am I a Candidate for Sure Smile Technology?
Candidates for orthodontic treatments are in good oral health (free of decay and gum disease), but they suffer from misalignment. Often, these individuals have:
- Misaligned teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Poor teeth alignment (malocclusion)
During your consultation at our Merritt Island dental practice, one of our doctors will determine if you are are good candidate for this orthodontic treatment. Depending on your needs, a member of our dental team will recommend either SureSmile braces or clear aligners to help you reach your goals.
SureSmile products make straightening your smile easier and more efficient.
How Will My Treatment Work?
Both treatment options begin with a thorough examination that involves taking digital impressions.
If you need braces, special brackets will be placed on your teeth. Once the SureSmile guide wires are connected to the brackets, you will periodically need to visit our office for wire tightenings. Braces must be carefully cleaned every day to ensure that you do not experience tooth decay.
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 can be removed when eating or drinking. Every couple of weeks, you will begin wearing the next set of trays in the series. One of our doctors will schedule periodic visits to our office so your progress can be monitored.
