Clear Orthodontics Are Possible With SureSmile

March 19, 2024

When you have dental misalignment, you could feel embarrassed about your smile and your overall oral health could suffer as well. To provide treatment for your uneven smile we can offer an alternative to metal braces. In today’s blog, your Lake Orion, MI, dentist talks about our custom SureSmile aligners.

The Importance of Correcting Your Uneven Teeth

With misalignment, you could have crooked, crowded, and overlapping teeth. These alter the beauty of your smile and may make you feel self-conscious. But misalignment also provides places for food and drink particles to become trapped and beyond the reach of a toothbrush or floss. The risk of tooth decay and gum disease increases, along with the severity of teeth stains and bad breath. For others, uneven teeth place pressure on the jaw joints and could lead to painful complications like TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding). But with our clear and cozy cosmetic orthodontics, our team can correct misalignment with barely-visible aligners!

Creating Your Custom Aligners

We will begin by taking a close look at your smile with advanced imaging technology, so we can understand the state of your alignment concerns and assess the underlying causes. If clear aligners are right for you, we will take detailed digital images and measurements of the smile from multiple angles, and use these to create a 3D model of your bite. In a lab setting, experts will use these images and impressions to create a series of SureSmile aligners, each made from a BPA-free clear plastic material, and each fitted for your smile.

The Treatment Process

When your SureSmile aligners are ready, you can start treatment. A set is worn daily, fitting over your teeth comfortably, for about 20 to 22 hours on average. You wear each set for two weeks, and for some, optimal results are possible in as little as one year. The system requires fewer office visits than braces, and the orthodontics are easy to use and clean. You can also remove them before you eat so there is no need to alter your diet, and being removable also means that brushing and flossing your teeth is much simpler too, so you can smile with confidence and enjoy bright smiles during treatment!
