What Is SureSmile?
SureSmile is a type of clear aligner therapy. This means that we use a series of clear, smooth plastic aligners to guide your teeth to their proper alignment. Clear aligners are made using digital impressions to fit your smile comfortably and precisely. As you periodically switch your aligners, your teeth will be gradually guided in specific, calibrated movements.
Custom-made from smooth, transparent plastic, SureSmile aligners are comfortable and nearly invisible. The aligners are also easily removable, allowing you to remove your aligners to eat, floss, and brush your teeth. With SureSmile clear braces, maintaining good oral hygiene during orthodontic treatment is simple, and you will not need to avoid any foods that may damage traditional metal braces.
How Long Do You Need To Wear SureSmile?
SureSmile is a system that will adhere to your teeth throughout the day, allowing the teeth to slowly change alignment over time. But individuals interested in using invisible aligners may ask how long they will be required to wear them before they will see a difference in their teeth’s appearance. For traditional braces, it often takes a few years before the teeth will be fixed. With clear alignment technology, that time is drastically reduced.
The treatment period for invisible braces can be anywhere from eight months to a year and a half, depending on your mouth’s individual needs and any important factors, including how many teeth are needing realignment.
How SureSmile Works
Our dental team will create aligners that will mold to your teeth and then create other pairs of aligners for each section of the alignment process. We suggest you wear your clear braces as often as possible to get the quickest and best results. Try to keep your invisible aligners in at all times except when eating or brushing your teeth.
How To Care For Your SureSmile Braces
If you decide that you would like to purchase SureSmile braces, we at VIP Smiles Dental would be more than happy to help you start the process of getting the perfect clear braces for your particular situation. Once you have gotten your invisible braces, taking good care of them is important. As previously mentioned, it is vital that you keep your braces in your mouth as much as possible, but make sure to keep them in a protective container when taking them out of your mouth.
The container will keep your clear aligners from getting contaminated or lost. Make sure to wash off your braces after each use and brush your teeth after eating food before putting your braces back in to prevent food from getting stuck in the braces.
