Teeth that are misaligned not only affect your appearance but also lead to oral health problems. Crooked, crowded, or teeth with bite issues make the patient have difficulties in oral care and hygiene. This may lead to tooth loss, damage or chipping of the tooth, and wearing away of the tooth enamel. Conversely, straightening your teeth reduces the risk of cavities, prevents gum disease, improves confidence, and improves your smile.
Suresmile clear aligners offer orthodontic treatment that is discreet, fast, and comfortable. These aligners are designed through advanced software to deliver the exact tooth movements and for a comfortable fit. Suresmile aligners are precisely made using special dental plastics that deliver optimal tooth movement. Your dentist creates a customized treatment plan through state-of-the-art manufacturing and sophisticated Suresmile software.
At All American Dental, our dentist will use an Orascanner® to take pictures of your teeth. Your teeth may also be scanned using a Cone Beam Computer Tomography (CBCT) to enable the dentist to view the position of your teeth and their roots. The images are sent to the computer, which constructs a 3D model of your teeth, helping the dentist to see how your teeth fit together.
Virtual tools in the Suresmile software are used to determine the final position of your teeth after treatment and come up with a suitable customized treatment plan. According to your prescription, a robot will precisely bend a memory alloy archwire that will help move your teeth. This archwire is fitted to your teeth to deliver gentle, consistent forces which drive the teeth to the desired position.
The specialist begins by discussing your dental health history and the desired results after treatment. The dentist will confirm whether you are eligible for this type of treatment as severe malocclusion and misalignment require other forms of orthodontic treatment. An intraoral scanner similar to a wand is used to digitally scan your mouth and produce several highly accurate 3D images of your teeth within seconds.
A unique treatment plan is created when these images are uploaded to the Suresmile software, which allows the dental team to assess how the aligners will work for you for maximum results. Each tooth is assessed for an optimal movement that will help you align your teeth to achieve your desired smile.
The Suresmile software is combined with the Digital Lab for precision and expertise in inserting the right amount of force on each tooth at the right time. This results in a faster and more comfortable treatment plan that aligns your teeth for your ideal smile.
After getting your first set of aligners, you will require getting new sets after every two weeks or, as the dentist recommends. These aligners should be worn for 20-22 hours daily for a period of six months. Taking them out for longer periods may delay the treatment or even require you to start over as the teeth will have shifted differently, not as desired.
Once the treatment is complete, you will receive customized retainers for wearing. They will help keep your teeth in their new positions.
