Few things can make you feel more self-conscious than having unattractive teeth. Whether it be crooked teeth or misaligned teeth, the impact on your smile is there for all to see. Fortunately, orthodontics can help. Everyone has heard of traditional metal braces for straightening teeth. But did you know that you may be able to have your teeth straightened with a virtually invisible system?
SureSmile® offers clear aligners that can effectively straighten teeth without being so obvious about it.
What is SureSmile®?
SureSmile® is an orthodontic system that involves the use of clear aligners, which makes them virtually invisible. They are individually crafted to match the unique shape of your teeth and mouth, offering a low-key alternative to traditional metal braces. Gone are the days when you need to have a mouthful of metal to straighten your teeth.
The clear aligners used in the SureSmile system blend in with your teeth, making them nearly invisible.
If you need to take photos, or simply want to smile or open your mouth, you will not need to worry about any feelings of embarrassment with SureSmile clear aligners.
One key benefit of this system is that you can remove your aligners whenever you like. Food restrictions are a thing of the past with SureSmile. If you need to eat, or clean your teeth, you just remove your aligners and put them back into your mouth when finished.
SureSmile® has proven itself as an effective technology in orthodontics. This system is just as effective as traditional metal braces. In fact, you may find that your treatment time is faster than with traditional braces. Many patients notice improvements within just a few weeks.
Cutting Edge Technology
Your SureSmile® aligners will be created using advanced imaging technology, allowing for the creation of a 3D image so that you can get an idea of what your teeth will look like when your treatment is complete. Your orthodontist can examine your teeth from any angle, allowing them to create a customized treatment plan just for you and your individual needs.
Here are a few frequently asked questions about SureSmile® treatment:
Are there any food restrictions with SureSmile®?
No. SureSmile®clear aligners are completely removable, allowing you to eat or drink all of your favorite foods and beverages. Just remember to replace them when you are done so that you stick to your treatment plan.
How often do I need to wear my SureSmile® aligners?
To be effective, you should be wearing your aligners for 22 hours a day to avoid unnecessarily lengthening your treatment time. You will swap out your aligners for a new set every week. Depending upon the details of your individual treatment plan, you will need to return in between two to 12 weeks. Typical appointment intervals are around seven weeks.
Are the aligners easy to maintain?
SureSmile® aligners are fairly easy to maintain. Since they can be removed, you will find it simple to clean, rinse, and store them when you are not using them. They need to be rinsed frequently and cleaned at least once a day. You can clean them using your toothbrush or cleaning tablets. Make sure that they are properly stored when not in use to avoid damaging them. In addition, do not rinse them in hot water, which could warp the plastic.
