Effective, removable, nearly invisible
SureSmile Clear Aligners blend in so well with the teeth that they're nearly invisible. In addition, they're customized to contour to the teeth and gums, making them a low-profile alternative to traditional braces. No more mouthful of metal!
Clear aligners are a proven technology in orthodontics, and SureSmile Clear Aligners are as effective as traditional braces. SureSmile Clear Aligners usually need less treatment time than braces, and patients see changes within a few weeks!
Unlike traditional braces, SureSmile Clear Aligners are removable. That means no more skipping your favorite foods or drinks during your treatment! Instead, simply remove the aligners for eating or drinking, brush your teeth and clean the aligners and place them back in your mouth when done.
Our clear aligners are part of the SureSmile system, which uses advanced computerized technology to create a 3D imaging model. The orthodontist can view your teeth from any angle and create a treatment plan customized to be the most efficient and effective for your unique needs.
SureSmile Clear Aligners are removable. That means you can take them out to eat or drink! That means you don't have to skip your favorite foods or drinks during treatment! Instead, remove your aligners for meals and drinks, then clean the aligners and brush your teeth before returning the aligners to your mouth.
Clear aligners work similarly to traditional braces by using gentle pressure to move the teeth properly. An individualized treatment plan establishing the desired outcome and the movements then needed for each aligner provided is completed by our doctors. Planning is most important so that we can achieve the most predictable, efficient outcome together. New sets of aligners are provided every few weeks throughout treatment until the final goal is achieved.
The goal is for you to wear clear aligners 22 hours a day to be effective. You'll be sent home with a set of aligners that you will change out every week. Depending on your individualized treatment plan, you will be strategically scheduled to return anywhere from 2-12 weeks. The majority of appointment intervals are 6-8 weeks.
SureSmile Clear Aligners are relatively easy to maintain. Because they are removable, they are easy to clean, rinse and store when not in use. They should be rinsed often and cleaned at least daily with your toothbrush (you can use cleaning tablets as well). Just make sure to store them properly in a case when not in use, so they will not be damaged, and avoid using hot water, toothpaste, or colored mouthwash to keep them from discoloring or warping.
SureSmile Clear Aligners can treat many dental issues, including overbite, underbite, crossbite, crowded teeth, and gapped teeth. However, those with extreme cases or multiple dental issues may need alternative treatment methods. Aligners are now combined with braces to achieve the best outcome possible when decreased orthodontic appliance visibility is desired. We can help you determine whether clear aligners are right for you.
