Suresmile treatment will appear much the same as conventional treatment to begin with. You will have braces and wires fitted for several weeks before you’re ready to start the suresmile process. Your Orthodontist will then assess your progress and how your teeth are moving to determine when you’re ready to begin suresmile.
First a 3D scan will be taken
suresmile technology uses a digital scan of your mouth and teeth to create a 3D model.
3D suresmile plan
Once the model is created your orthodontist will design your final smile in the computer. They will carefully look at your teeth from all angles and close-up to make fine micro adjustments. The suresmile model allows your orthodontist to see more than they would normally by looking in your mouth, so treatment is very precise. Once your doctor is 100% satisfied with your smile design, custom suresmile wires are ordered for delivery.
Customised precision archwires are ordered
suresmile wires are made from various metals to suit all sorts of treatment stages. Importantly each wire is custom designed by your doctor and then bent by a robot. Each wire is specific to your teeth and treatment and bent with robotic precision to 1/10th of a millimetre of accuracy. The 3D planning and robotic precision custom wires all work to make treatment fast, efficient and precise.
How often do I have to see my orthodontist?
A big benefit of suresmile treatment is fewer in office appointments for you. Because your orthodontist can precisely design your smile in the suresmile software more bends can be added to you suresmile wires. More bends mean your wires are working harder for longer so you don’t have to have as many minor adjustments as with conventional braces. Appointments with suresmile treatment can be 8-10 weeks compared to 6-8 weeks without suresmile.
