SureSmile is a teeth-aligning treatment unlike traditional braces. It begins with a digital scan to precisely target the starting position of your teeth. From the 3D model, Dr. Fowler is able to map out a treatment plan using SureSmile technology to create custom clear aligners. The advanced technology then creates an archwire, customized specifically to address the alignment issues. Teeth align more efficiently when we know just where and how to place them. After all, the quickest path from point A to point B will always be a straight line. And, that’s the secret behind the revolutionary SureSmile® orthodontic braces system – precision.
How does it work?
Traditionally, an orthodontist manually and incrementally bends the archwire that guides your teeth into place over the course of several years. It’s hardly a precise process, and teeth are moved in a slower, somewhat of a zig-zag fashion that can result in imprecise alignment. With the SureSmile system, because 3D technology is used first to image the teeth, and a robotic arm is then tasked to precisely bend the archwire, your teeth are moved in a more direct path, lessening your time in treatment. The benefit to you is a 30% reduction in treatment time and an alignment guided by exacting design instead of manual experimentation.
Benefits of SureSmile
For mild to moderate alignment cases, SureSmile aligners are a great and more discreet alternative to braces. These aligners can be removed to brush, floss, and eat without having to worry about working around braces. Due to the level of accuracy this treatment plan provides, Dr. Fowler is able to predict and plan for tooth movements. This allows patients to get the smile they want and expect, in less time.
If you are unhappy with the alignment of your teeth, make an appointment with Dr. Fowler to see if SureSmile is the best option for you.
