Orthodontic treatment with braces can take over years, and sometimes even longer. The advancements in orthodontic technology have brought faster and more convenient treatment. SureSmile is considered a new alternative to traditional braces and uses modern technology for moving the teeth more efficiently.
How does it work?
SureSmile is a modern orthodontic technology, which allows us to adjust the pressure applied to each tooth precisely, and also increase the efficiency of movement by limiting the time required to grant you a brand-new smile. SureSmile archwires are customized using cutting-edge robotics technology, giving your orthodontist better control over the strength and direction of forces that are to be applied to the teeth. The tooth movement can be minimized by acting on each tooth individually, to achieve a new smile, by also slashing treatment time almost in half.
What is the process of acquiring a SureSmile?
SureSmile requires a three-step process, with every phase designed according to the convenience of the patient:
Advanced Optical Imaging: From the beginning, SureSmile uses optical imaging tools for creating a 3D computer model of your mouth and bite. It seems more comfortable to fabricate physical impressions, and not only that, it provides more accurate unparalleled insight into your orthodontic situation.
Comprehensive Planning: With the help of this computer model, Dr. Lena can get a closer look at your teeth and bite. The model can be manipulated for creating virtual simulations that help in showing the orthodontist how exactly the treatment will affect your teeth. It will also let the orthodontist plan the best route to make you have a new smile.
Robotic Precision:After planning tooth movement, the orthodontist will upload the instructions to a robot which carefully shapes a memory alloy archwire that fits as prescribed. This wire helps in delivering the required force to each tooth individually instead of doing it to all teeth at once; thus, it improves the treatment's efficiency.
