SureSmile is an orthodontic treatment option that uses 3D technology to create a series of aligners that gradually shift your teeth into their desired positions. SureSmile aligners in Mesa, AZ, can be used with most malocclusions and orthodontic misalignments.
The patented design of SureSmile aligners makes them especially effective at moving teeth into position quickly and comfortably. Unlike conventional braces, the smooth plastic surface of SureSmile aligners in Mesa, AZ, allows them to move the teeth with minimal friction or irritation to the soft tissues of your mouth—making these aligners comfortable to wear throughout treatment.
Dental laboratories use advanced CAD/CAM technology to create the models and molds for your aligners. Once your custom-made models are complete, the laboratory creates a digitized 3D image of your smile. This digital image is used to design your series of clear BPA-free plastic aligners. The laboratory then fabricates your custom aligners according to your treatment requirements. Finally, when SureSmile aligners in Mesa, AZ, are ready, you get them!
Each aligner is made of smooth BPA-free transparent plastic and is designed to apply controlled pressure to the inside of the teeth in a specific sequence. Your dentist will instruct you to wear each set of aligners for two weeks at a time before moving on to the next set in the series until you have finished your entire treatment plan.
You will need to change your aligners every couple of weeks throughout your treatment process. Every two weeks or so, you should wear a new pair of aligners to continue the gradual repositioning of your teeth. Since they are designed to be worn for about two weeks at a time, this will keep your smile moving toward its ideal alignment at a comfortable pace. Additionally, changing out your SureSmile aligners in Mesa, AZ, on a regular basis will help to keep your teeth and gums healthy throughout treatment.
Depending on the exact nature of your case, you may need to wear a set of aligners for up to 24 hours a day or just at night. Your dentist will advise you on the best wearing schedule based on your specific case and personal needs.
