What is SureSmile?

SureSmile is an advanced clear aligner treatment system that combines 3D imaging technology, digital treatment planning, and precision manufacturing to deliver efficient and accurate tooth movement. Unlike traditional braces, SureSmile utilizes a series of customized, removable clear aligners tailored specifically to each patient’s unique dental anatomy and desired treatment outcomes.

The SureSmile system offers numerous benefits over conventional orthodontic treatment, including improved aesthetics, shorter treatment times, better comfort, and fewer appointments.

How SureSmile Works

SureSmile employs a cutting-edge process beginning with highly accurate 3D imaging of the patient’s teeth, jaws, and facial structure. This digital data is then utilized by the orthodontist to create a detailed virtual treatment plan, mapping out the precise movements required to achieve the desired final tooth positioning.

Once the digital treatment plan is finalized, SureSmile’s advanced manufacturing technology produces a series of customized clear aligners, each designed to incrementally move the teeth into the desired position.

The SureSmile Process

The SureSmile treatment process typically involves the following steps:

  • Initial Consultation and Records: During the initial appointment, your dentist or orthodontist will conduct a comprehensive examination, and take digital impressions, X-rays, and photographs to capture the current state of the patient’s teeth and jaws.
  • Digital Treatment Planning: Using the digital records, Dr. Ruehle will create a detailed virtual treatment plan, outlining the precise movements required to achieve the desired final tooth positioning.
  • Custom Aligner Fabrication: The approved treatment plan is then sent to SureSmile’s manufacturing facility, where a series of customized clear aligners are produced using precise 3D printing technology.
  • Aligner Delivery and Wear: The patient will receive their first set of clear aligners and begin wearing them according to the orthodontist’s instructions, typically for 20 to 22 hours per day.
  • Periodic Appointments and Aligner Changes: The patient will attend regular follow-up appointments to monitor progress, receive new sets of aligners, and make any necessary adjustments to the treatment plan.

Advantages of SureSmile

SureSmile clear aligners offer several significant advantages over traditional orthodontic treatment methods:

  • Improved Aesthetics: The clear, removable aligners are virtually invisible, providing a discreet orthodontic treatment option for adults and teens.
  • Shorter Treatment Time: The precision of SureSmile’s customized aligners often leads to shorter treatment times, potentially reducing the duration by several months.
  • Better Comfort and Fewer Appointments: With customized aligners designed for a comfortable fit, patients typically experience less discomfort and fewer emergency appointments compared to traditional braces.
  • Precise Tooth Movement and Better Outcomes: The digital treatment planning and customized aligners allow for more precise tooth movement, resulting in better outcomes and improved facial aesthetics.
  • Customized Treatment: Each patient receives a treatment plan tailored specifically to their unique dental anatomy and desired treatment goals, providing a personalized approach.

Who Can Benefit from SureSmile?

SureSmile clear aligners can be an excellent solution for a wide range of patients, including:

  • Patients with Mild to Moderate Orthodontic Cases: SureSmile is well-suited for addressing mild to moderate crowding, spacing issues, and minor bite problems.
  • Patients Seeking Discreet Orthodontic Treatment: Adults and teens who prioritize a more aesthetic and inconspicuous orthodontic treatment may find SureSmile an attractive option.
  • Patients Seeking Efficient and Comfortable Treatment: Individuals who prioritize shorter treatment times, improved comfort, and fewer appointments may benefit from SureSmile.

Finding a SureSmile Provider

To receive SureSmile clear aligner treatment, patients must visit an orthodontist or dentist who is certified and trained in the SureSmile system. You can locate a SureSmile provider in your area by visiting the SureSmile website and using their provider locator tool.

During the initial consultation, the orthodontist or dentist will evaluate your specific case, discuss treatment options, and provide a detailed treatment plan and cost estimate for SureSmile clear aligners.

SureSmile vs. Traditional Braces

While both SureSmile clear aligners and traditional braces aim to correct misaligned teeth and bite issues, there are significant differences between the two approaches:

  • Aesthetics: SureSmile clear aligners are virtually invisible, providing a more discreet treatment option compared to the visible brackets and wires of traditional braces.
  • Treatment Time: SureSmile often requires shorter treatment times compared to traditional braces, potentially reducing the treatment duration by several months.
  • Comfort: The customized aligners and lack of brackets and wires in SureSmile typically result in improved comfort and less irritation during treatment.
  • Outcomes: The precision of SureSmile’s digital treatment planning and customized aligners often leads to better outcomes and improved facial aesthetics.
  • Cost: SureSmile treatment may be more expensive than traditional braces initially, but the shorter treatment time and fewer appointments can offset some additional costs.

It’s important to note insurance coverage for SureSmile may vary, so patients should check with their insurance providers regarding coverage and applicable copays or deductibles.
