What are SureSmile® clear aligners?
SureSmile® clear aligners are a type of orthodontic treatment that is used to straighten teeth and correct misalignment. They are made of a clear, plastic material and are designed to be worn over the teeth. The aligners are custom-made to fit the individual's teeth and are printed using Primescan technology . They are changed out every two to four weeks as the teeth are gradually moved into the desired position. SureSmile® clear aligners are made from a proprietary material called ClearForce®, which is designed to be strong and durable.
SureSmile® clear aligners can be used to treat a wide range of orthodontic issues, including:
- Crowding: Teeth are positioned too closely together, making it difficult to clean and causing a crowded appearance.
- Spacing: Gaps or spaces exist between the teeth due to an abnormal growth pattern, missing teeth, or other reasons.
- Overjet: Upper front teeth protrude forward beyond the lower front teeth. This can cause bite issues and an unattractive appearance.
- Overbite: The upper front teeth overlap the lower front teeth excessively. This can cause bite issues and jaw pain.
- Midline Deviation: The center of the upper front teeth does not align with the center of the lower front teeth.
- Open bite: When some teeth do not touch, causing an opening between the upper and lower teeth. This can cause speech and chewing issues.
