Straighten your teeth discreetly with SureSmile® clear aligners in London, ON
Straight teeth and a properly aligned jaw do much more than give you an attractive smile – they are also great for your oral health! When your teeth are crooked, it is more difficult to clean between your teeth, and a misaligned bite properly can contribute to painful problems such as TMJ disorder. However, many adults are hesitant to undergo traditional orthodontic treatment with braces. That’s why Hyde Park Dentistry is proud to offer SureSmile® clear aligners to our London, ON area patients!
The SureSmile® difference
Also sometimes called “clear braces,” clear aligner therapy has been used by millions of adults and children worldwide because it is a highly effective way of straightening teeth without the discomfort and unsightly appearance of metal braces. SureSmile® is similar to Invisalign and other clear aligner options but differs in that it uses proprietary laboratory software, enabling our dentists to craft your treatment plan more precisely for optimal results. Additionally, SureSmile uses Essix ACE® plastic, which is an industry leader in dental plastics and offers superior comfort.
How SureSmile® clear aligner therapy works
SureSmile® uses a series of custom-fabricated aligners designed to shift your teeth and jaw into their ideal position gradually. You will wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day and switch them out for the next in the series at the interval specified in your treatment plan (typically every two weeks). SureSmile® therapy is loved by patients and dentists alike because it is:
- Effective: because the aligners are fabricated based on advanced computer technology, SureSmile aligners create precise movements while requiring fewer adjustments than traditional braces
- Versatile: SureSmile is a great option for a wide variety of misalignment issues ranging from gaps and crowding to bite problems such as an overbite or underbite
- Convenient: fewer checkups are needed than for traditional braces, and you can continue to enjoy your favorite foods without restrictions because the aligners are completely removable
- Comfortable: made from proprietary Essix ACE plastic, SureSmile aligners are designed for comfort and do not have any metal wires or brackets to poke your mouth
How do I get started?
The first step towards getting the straight, beautiful smile you’ve always wanted is to schedule your initial consultation. During your consultation, we will talk with you about your goals for your smile, evaluate your bite and tooth alignment, and take a digital scan of your mouth so that we can begin planning your treatment. Approximately a week after your consultation, we will review your treatment plan with you, and then the laboratory will begin fabricating your aligners based on our precise specifications. Once they are ready, you will pick up your aligners and then return for monthly checkup appointments until your treatment plan is complete. Overall, treatment typically takes between six months to one year, depending on the severity of your case. When your treatment is complete, we will give you a retainer to wear at night so you can maintain your terrific results.
