How They Work

Traditional braces move teeth into position by fusing brackets onto the surfaces of each tooth. Then, wires are connected to each bracket. By adjusting the wires, pressure is placed on specific teeth to gently shift them into their ideal alignment. SureSmile® aligners and other clear braces solutions use a serious of alignment trays to shift teeth into their proper positions. Each set of aligners is formed to represent the position of teeth one step closer to the proper position. Patients will wear these aligners for about two weeks at a time. Then, they exchange the aligners for the next set in the series. SureSmile® aligners reposition teeth, delivering a healthy, beautiful, flawlessly aligned smile in less than a year for most people.

Who Should Consider SureSmile® Aligners

SureSmile® aligners work so well because they are easy to use, invisible, and treatment is safe and efficient. For adult patients who have a relatively healthy smile and no concerns with jaw pain, strain, or excessive dental wear, aligning teeth using the SureSmile® orthodontic system can be a better solution than spending a year or more on advanced orthodontic treatments like traditional bracket and wire braces. Because they are metal free, SureSmile® aligners are also a great option for any patient who has allergies or sensitivities to metal. If you can’t fit frequent trips to orthodontist into a busy schedule, SureSmile® may be your best option as well.
