Reinventing the Science of Smiles
The development of SureSmile stemmed from a meeting of forward-thinking experts in orthodontics and technology.
They envisioned a system that could improve the quality and predictability of orthodontic treatment by customizing shape memory alloy wires. These wires, made of Copper Nickel Titanium, are preferred for gentle, consistent forces in moving teeth and used frequently in early stages of treatment.
Traditionally, orthodontists were not able to use these wires for the precise movements required in completing treatment because of the high temperatures required to customize the wires for each patient’s needs.
The experts had a revolutionary idea: use robotic technology to customize the wires. Not only could a robot bend the wires with high heat, but it could bend them more precisely than a human could.
The precision bends and properties of the shape memory alloy wires would reduce treatment times and improve outcome quality by moving teeth more directly and predictably to their finishing positions.
The SureSmile revolution was underway.
The SureSmile Difference
SureSmile technology creates a measurably better smile for patients. It offers more precision, better results, and a beautiful smile in less time than conventional braces.
An independent study published in the World Journal of Orthodontics found that patients treated with SureSmile experienced overall reduced treatment time and a better quality outcome that those treated conventionally. The precision that is the basis of SureSmile technology creates a higher quality result. For you, that means a beautiful smile and a healthy mouth – both in less time than conventional braces.
Shorter Treatment Times
You’ve probably heard from friends or family that wearing braces is a long-term commitment, taking more than two years on average. With SureSmile orthodontic treatment, getting braces isn’t what it used to be. You’ll get outstanding results in less time with SureSmile technology.
Fewer Office Visits
With SureSmile, patients spend less time in treatment and make fewer visits to the orthodontist. The custom SureSmile archwire provides smoother movement for a more comfortable experience than traditional braces. And, by quickly returning to a normal oral hygiene routine, maintaining healthy teeth and gums is easier.
Less Overall Discomfort
Anyone who has worn braces will probably tell you that wire adjustments and changes were the least favorite part of the process because they usually caused discomfort. Fortunately, the SureSmile system is engineered to maximize therapeutic efficiency of each wire, significantly reducing the number of adjustments needed. This means fewer episodes of discomfort over the course of your treatment.
Instead of the doctor bending an archwire by hand, a SureSmile wire is custom-shaped by a robot. When the wire is inserted, each tooth moves directly to the prescribed position. It’s this precise movement that enables such great results with a shorter treatment time.
