Get A Straight Smile Without Braces
Suresmile uses a series of clear, plastic trays to shift your teeth, rather than braces. This provides a lot of great benefits. First, the aligners are completely invisible when worn, and do not affect your speech. This means your treatment will be much more subtle, and nobody has to know you’re getting orthodontic treatment.
Suresmile is also more comfortable than braces since it tends to move teeth more gradually and does not involve any metal components that could poke your mouth. It’s also very convenient since you can remove the aligners to eat and drink and to brush and floss. This means there are no dietary restrictions or difficulties cleaning your teeth. Get started by scheduling an appointment at Alliance Family Dentistry today.
To begin the process, you’ll need to come to Alliance Family Dentistry for a consultation with a Colorado Springs dentist. They will take images of your mouth, perform an exam, take x-rays, and determine if you’re a good candidate for treatment. If you’re approved, they will take molds and impressions of your mouth and work with SureSmile to develop your treatment plan and build your first few sets of aligners, which will take a few weeks.
After a few weeks, you’ll come back to our Colorado Springs dental office to get your SureSmile aligners and instructions on how to wear them. usually for. Each set is typically worn for 20-22 hours per day, and you’ll switch the aligners every 2 weeks. You will also need to come in every 4-6 weeks for a quick, 15-minute checkup, and to get your next few sets of aligners. This basic process will be repeated until your treatment is complete.
Treatment time varies for each patient, but most people can complete SureSmile treatment in a year. This means that, in most cases, SureSmile doesn’t take as long as braces, which usually require at least 12-18 months to move your teeth properly.
Your own treatment may differ, of course, and there’s no way to estimate the length of your treatment without a checkup at our office. To learn more and see how long your orthodontic treatment may take, contact Alliance Family Dentistry for a complimentary consultation.
This depends on your oral health and the extent of your orthodontic issues. First and foremost, your mouth must be healthy and free of issues like gum disease, cavities, and infected teeth. You cannot get orthodontic treatment with these chronic oral health issues.
SureSmile is powerful, but not as versatile as traditional braces. If you have very serious issues with your teeth and jaw alignment, SureSmile may not work for you. To find out if you’re a candidate, schedule an appointment with us today.
