Have you ever wanted a better smile, but didn't want to wait for years while you wear traditional braces? Then you need to learn how Suresmile works.
Why should you want to know about Suresmile? How about less pain, less time and a better smile? And that's just the start.
Of course, we know you don't want to just jump in. You want to know how the process works first and we're here to explain it.
A Deceptive Look
At first, you might not think Suresmile is much different. After all, it'll still look similar to the traditional braces your friends might have. However, looks can be deceiving. Despite a similar look, they function quite differently to achieve a straighter smile in less time.
The Initial Scan
The innovative Suresmile technology starts with an initial scan. This is the first of three main steps towards getting you fitted with Suresmile braces. Unlike traditional braces that rely on two-dimensional technology, Suresmile starts with a three-dimensional scan to give your orthodontist a much clearer view of your teeth, bone structure, nerves, tissue and more.
By getting a more in-depth scan, you get a more customised fit, which makes them not only more comfortable, but more effective.
A cone beam computed tomography or a white light scanner is used to create the scan. Once this scan is complete, you're ready to move on to the next step.
A Look At Your Perfect Smile
Thanks to the 3D model created from your scan, your orthodontist is able to get a clear picture of how your smile can and should look. Suresmile technology doesn't stop at scans. Instead, the virtual simulation software allows your orthodontist to see your teeth from every angle to determine the best possible positioning.
Getting a more in-depth view through the simulation allows your orthodontist to optimise your treatment, which leads to a better smile faster.
The best part - you get to see what the final outcome will be before you ever get fitted with Suresmile braces or Suresmile aligners. Now, you don't have to wait for months or years to see what your dream smile might look like. You'll already know and just get to sit back and wait for the results - after you get the braces off, that is.
During this phase, your orthodontist creates a personalised treatment plan for you. Every single tooth is taken into account for optimal accuracy.
Obviously, a plan is great, but you need the actual braces. How Suresmile works so effectively is by using a robot to bend and form the CopperNi-Ti wires, which are heated to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit, to match your personlised treatment plan exactly. Since the robot follows the designed plan, you don't have to worry about human error.
Do you have any smart gadgets in your home? If you choose Suresmile, you'll also have a smarter smile. The wire technology is so advanced that the wires are actually called smart wires. This allows for an unparalleled level of accuracy.
The wires are placed into a custom-made mold. They're designed to work with the heat of your mouth to straighten your teeth faster.
One Size Doesn't Fit All
You've probably heard about all the orthodontist visits necessary with traditional braces. This is because they have to be constantly adjusted to fit with your changing mouth. Until the last decade, it was a one-size-fits-all approach.
While it was effective, one size doesn't fit all. This just meant far more work to achieve the same, or sometimes not as good, results.
Thanks to the patented archwires with Suresmile, you get a customised fit from the start. This means far fewer visits and manual adjustments, which can sometimes lead to a sore mouth.
Thanks to how Suresmile works, periodic adjustments via the Suresmile software and smart wires are all that's necessary to achieve a beautiful new smile.
Less Time In Braces
All of this might sound good, but there's probably one major question you have - how long do you have to wear them? We've talked about getting a smile in less time and that's absolutely true.
In a clinical study, patients wore their Suresmile braces seven months less on average than those with conventional braces. While this is just an average, it proves that you could go from the expectation of wearing your braces for at least two years to around 18 months or less.
This works especially well if you're wanting to straighten your teeth for a special occasion, such as a wedding or graduation.
How Suresmile Works For Most Cases
While every person is different, the advanced approach to how Suresmile works makes them an ideal choice for most people. Crooked teeth, misalignment and overcrowding are all areas Suresmile handles effectively.
From minor to moderate corrections, Suresmile has you covered. For major corrections, another approach may be necessary, but we'll be able to tell you if you're a candidate or not after a quick visit.
Proven Over Time
Suresmile isn't a brand new treatment option, even if some orthodontists still don't offer it. Yes, the traditional approach is tried and true. Wires and brackets are manually positioned and adjusted to give you your best smile.
However, manual means there is more room for human error. Suresmile technology has proven to be an effective option over the last decade.
Instead of having to worry about frequent visits, manual adjustments and longer wear time, you get to avoid all of that. This has proven to be a superior alternative to traditional braces that doesn't sacrifice quality.
Considering The Alternative
While Suresmile might sound more like something out of a science fiction movie, your mouth, smile and confidence might just thank you for letting robots craft your braces for you.
Plus, you get to show off those smart wires to all your friends and family. How often do you see people actually wanting to show off their braces? It's a win-win.
