You may be wondering what to expect with our suresmile® treatment system. Here is a general overview of your time in treatment with us.
The day we place your braces is the beginning of your treatment and the first step on the path to reach your goal. With suresmile®, you will complete treatment in a shorter amount of time with fewer visits and less discomfort compared to traditional braces.
First, we’ll place the brackets, and then insert a standard “straight wire” through them. This step will provide some initial movement, so you may notice changes in your teeth. Once your teeth begin to level and align, you will be ready for an exciting part of your treatment process: your suresmile® scan. We’ll use our 3D Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) to create a 3D model and take pictures of your teeth and your smile. This happens while you watch in real time, which is pretty cool!
After your appointment, the doctor exams your 3D model to determine the optimal position for every tooth, then a robot makes the wire. These wires are made of a special material called a Shape Memory Alloy (Copper Nickel Titanium).
