Shorter Treatment Times
You’ve probably heard from friends or family that wearing braces is a long-term commitment, taking more than two years on average. With SureSmile orthodontic treatment, getting braces isn’t what it used to be. You’ll get outstanding results in less time with SureSmile technology.
SureSmile wires do not move teeth any faster than the wires used in conventional orthodontics. Your overall treatment time is shorter because SureSmile moves your teeth directly towards their target positions.
Fewer Office Visits
With SureSmile, patients spend less time in treatment and make fewer visits to the orthodontist. The custom SureSmile archwire provides smoother movement for a more comfortable experience than traditional braces. And by quickly returning to a normal oral hygiene routine, maintaining healthy teeth and gums is easier.
Less Overall Discomfort
Many patients have found that SureSmile wires are more comfortable for two reasons. First, the discomfort of being in braces is largely caused by wire changes. Since SureSmile wires are custom-designed, there is no need to constantly change out wires to advance treatment.
Second, the SureSmile process uses a wire material called Nickel Titanium. It has gained popularity for being flexible yet very effective in delivering minimal, consistent forces to move teeth. It is also heat-activated, which means it responds to body heat.
Instead of the doctor bending an archwire by hand, a SureSmile wire is custom-shaped by a robot. When the wire is inserted, each tooth moves directly to the prescribed position. It’s this precise movement that enables such great results with a shorter treatment time.
