At Innovative Orthodontic Centers, we’re a leading provider of SureSmile®. By pairing this advanced orthodontic treatment option with self-ligating clear or metal braces, you get the straightening power of braces with the pinpoint accuracy of digital imaging. We’re able to provide the highest-quality results in less time than conventional treatment methods. In fact, studies have shown that SureSmile® decreases the duration of treatment by 29% on average.
What is SureSmile®?
SureSmile® is a revolutionary orthodontic technology that lets us customize your braces treatment in a way that shifts your teeth into their correct positions more predictably and precisely than ever before. With a SureSmile® treatment plan, you’ll get the smile you want while spending less time in braces. After planning out your tooth movements by manipulating a 3D model of your mouth with special software tools, a custom archwire is created for you with robotic wire-bending technology. The wire delivers gentle forces to move teeth into place with less discomfort.
What are the Advantages of Choosing SureSmile®?
- SureSmile® uses 3D modeling for superior accuracy.
- You’ll finish treatment more quickly than you would with conventional braces.
- The robotic wire-bending is precise to within one-tenth of a millimeter.
- SureSmile® is more comfortable than traditional braces.
- You can see a simulation of your expected results before you start treatment.
- SureSmile® requires fewer office visits, saving you time and money.
How Does SureSmile® Work?
We use computerized technology to scan your teeth and SureSmile® generates a full 3D model of your mouth, jaws and teeth all the way down to the tooth roots. We can get a clear view of the position and orientation of your teeth and see how they fit together from every angle, enhancing our ability to diagnose and visualize potential outcomes. We can even show you what your expected results will look like.
Dr. Ibrahim creates your treatment plan using SureSmile® software to come up with the most proactive, effective straightening approach for your unique needs. She can manipulate virtual simulations of your mouth to determine the final position of your teeth and jaws. She’ll design the perfect smile for you based on your real facial and dental features and anatomy.
This is where it gets really cool. The SureSmile® system does the math and directs a robotic machine to bend shape-memory, alloy archwires based on Dr. Ibrahim’s prescription. This robotic customization provides accuracy to within one tenth of a millimeter and can’t be matched with manual bending. The wire then gently delivers pressure that shifts the teeth into their ideal places more comfortably and quickly than other treatment methods. Since it’s so precise, fewer adjustments are needed and there’s no tweaking, saving you time and money over the course of treatment!
