A beautiful smile is a powerful asset. It can improve your self-esteem and make you seem happy, healthy, and successful. It can help you to feel confident in social and professional situations, and make you seem more attractive.
Unfortunately, few of us are blessed with naturally straight teeth. Genetics, habits, and sheer luck all play a part in the development of our smile, and many people find that they end up with a poor bite, gaps between our teeth, or teeth that are twisted or crooked.
In the past, conventional orthodontic braces were the only method of correcting these problems. However, innovations in orthodontic care have led to the creation of a revolutionary new treatment program known as SureSmile.
SureSmile is a modern solution for teeth that are crooked, twisted or poorly spaced, and mild to moderate bite problems. It is a convenient and discreet alternative to traditional orthodontic braces, and gaining popularity thanks to the unique benefits it offers its patients.
How does SureSmile work?
SureSmile is a treatment program that uses a sequence of transparent, acrylic liners placed over your teeth to gently guide them into their new, desired position. Each aligner is designed to guide the teeth for a fraction of the overall pathway, and is worn for approximately two weeks before moving on to the next one in the series.
SureSmile aligners are custom-designed using the innovative SureSmile mapping technology, which determines the path your teeth must take in order to reach the healthiest and most aesthetically pleasing results. This journey will be used to create the sequence for your treatment, which must be worn in the correct order, if your treatment program is to be successful.
Many people choose SureSmile, because of the great number of advantages that the treatment program offers. These include:
Discretion. The transparent design of SureSmile liners makes them virtually imperceptible once in place. No one need ever know that you are undergoing treatment to improve your teeth.
Flexible. With conventional braces, certain foods must be avoided as they can become stuck in or damage your brace. SureSmile aligners are removable. This means that you can tuck into anything you like without needing to compromise, so long as you pop your alinement tray back in place once you are done!
Fewer appointments. Traditional braces require regular adjustments to coax the teeth into the correct position. However, with SureSmile, once you have received your sequence of liners you will only need to attend brief check-up appointments every few months.
Easier cleaning. Negotiating the brackets and wires of orthodontic braces can be a challenge, and there are often areas of the teeth that are missed and at high risk of decay. With SureSmile, the alignment trays can be removed, while you brush and floss your teeth, ensuring that you can clean them to the best of their ability and helping to preserve your dental health. Then just give the liners a quick brush to remove any traces of bacteria, and pop them back into your mouth.
