When you have an uneven smile, your malocclusion could have a negative impact on the health and beauty of your smile. To offer smile correction and safeguard your smile against possible trouble, then you need orthodontics. In today’s blog, your Lake Orion, MI, dentist talks about the SureSmile clear aligner system.
The Benefits of Treating Misalignment
Malocclusion could mean serious trouble for the health, beauty, and function of your smile. For example, misalignment makes brushing and flossing thoroughly difficult, which could allow tooth decay and gum disease to develop. The changes to your bite balance could lead to complications like TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding). You could also feel uncomfortable with the appearance of your smile, which could impact your social interactions and overall quality of life. Which is why we recommend treating your misalignment with clear and comfortable SureSmile orthodontics.
Creating Custom Aligners
This system doesn’t use metal braces or wires at all, and instead corrects your misalignment with a series of clear and comfortable plastic aligners, each one custom-made for your smile. Their custom nature means they fit comfortably and offer treatment with precision and accuracy. To get started, our team will take detailed digital images of your smile from multiple angles. We then use these to create a detailed digital impression, one far more accurate than the old school physical ones. In a lab setting, experts will employ the impressions to design and fabricate the finished product. You can then obtain an even and healthy smile!
The SureSmile System
With the SureSmile system, you wear a set of aligners daily for 20 to 22 hours, and then over a period of two weeks. You then begin wearing the next set for a similar amount of time, continuing this process until you obtain even and healthy smiles. Treatment could last as little as six months for minor cases, or require a year for more substantial cases. We can correct misalignment for teens and adults, and also address misalignment for people who once wore braces and have had their teeth since shift. The aligners are easy to clean and maintain, and treatment requires fewer office visits and a shorter time frame. You can also take them out before meals or prior to brushing and flossing.
If you have any questions about the SureSmile system, then contact our team today to learn more. We want to help you enjoy an even and healthy smile, so you never feel self-conscious about your teeth.
