There are many options to choose from to straighten your teeth. From traditional braces to newer innovations like clear aligners, those seeking orthodontic correction now have more choices than ever before. SureSmile® Clear Aligners are one of these solutions, and they have become popular and effective in achieving tooth alignment and a more confident smile. Keep reading to learn more about how SureSmile® clear aligners work and why they might be the right choice for your orthodontic journey.

What Are SureSmile® Clear Aligners?

SureSmile® clear aligners are a modern orthodontic treatment designed to progressively shift teeth into their desired positions using a series of custom-made, virtually invisible aligners. These aligners are crafted from a durable, transparent plastic material, making them discreet and comfortable to wear. Unlike traditional braces, SureSmile® clear aligners are removable, allowing for easy cleaning and the flexibility to enjoy your favorite foods without restrictions.

How SureSmile® Works

SureSmile® clear aligners start with your consultation with Dr. Rod Strober. He will evaluate your dental needs and determine if clear aligners are suitable for you. If SureSmile® is deemed appropriate, digital impressions or molds of your teeth will be generated to create a personalized treatment plan.

Using advanced 3D imaging, a digital map will be made of your teeth. With this map, Dr. Strober can figure out the precise movements your teeth must make to achieve optimal alignment. These digital models are then used to fabricate a series of personal aligners tailored to your unique dental anatomy.

Once your aligners are ready, you’ll receive a set to wear for a specified period, typically around two weeks. Each aligner applies gentle pressure to shift your teeth gradually. As you advance through the aligners, your teeth will gradually move into their desired positions, bringing you closer to your ideal smile with each new set of aligners.

Is SureSmile® Right for You?

SureSmile® offers many benefits, such as being discreet, comfortable, removable, providing predictable results, and offering convenience with fewer trips to the dentist. However, they’re not suitable for everyone. Individuals with severe orthodontic issues or complex dental needs may require additional treatments. Also, commitment to wearing aligners for the recommended amount of time each day is essential for successful results.

SureSmile® clear aligners represent a cutting-edge solution for achieving a straighter, more confident smile. If these aligners are something you want to consider, reach out to Country Club Dentistry in Rancho Mirage, CA, by calling 760-832-7915 to schedule an appointment.
