Clear aligners have been around for a couple of decades now, and it’s easy to see why they have remained popular, especially with adults. However, that doesn’t mean that the technology behind clear aligners hasn’t improved over the years. At Springs Dental Care, we are proud to offer innovative SureSmile® treatment, which takes clear aligners to the next level in orthodontic care. This method makes smile correction simpler and more streamlined than ever before.
Similar to other clear aligners, SureSmile® has several appealing advantages over traditional orthodontics, including the following:
SureSmile® is unique from other clear aligners mainly because of the technology that goes into the treatment planning. Using advanced software and robotic technology, Dr. Cea can create a highly accurate 3D model of your jaw and teeth and use this to plan your treatment with much more precision. Plus, with this technology, you get to see what your smile will look like after treatment is complete. Basically, each set of clear aligners is specially designed to make deliberate changes to your smile’s alignment, guiding your smile into its ideal position. Because of SureSmile’s more precise system of planning, these aligners have been shown to achieve results sooner than conventional treatment, reducing treatment time by about 30 percent.
The treatment process for SureSmile is actually quite simple. First, we scan your mouth, which only takes a few minutes. Then, Dr. Cea uses the proprietary software to put together a treatment plan. Once the aligners have been fabricated, you start wearing your aligners every day for about two weeks before switching to the next set, along with occasional visits with Dr. Cea to check on your progress.
Treatment with SureSmile is meant to be completely customized to each patient’s needs. As a result, it can be used to treat most patients. However, not everyone is a good candidate for SureSmile. To find out if you qualify, you need to schedule a consultation with Dr. Cea. He can evaluate your teeth and determine if this treatment can help you finally have a more confident smile.
