Do you have noticeable gaps between your teeth? Are you experiencing overcrowding that impacts your dental arch? Have you been diagnosed with a crossbite, overbite, or underbite?
Orthodontic treatments are highly recommended for many of these patients to realign the dental arch, bite, and smile. However, many avoid having this conversation with their dentist for fear of needing metal bracket-and-wire braces. Fortunately, patients have more options than ever when it comes to finding orthodontic treatments that work with their lifestyle.
Our team describes SureSmile orthodontic treatment as a clear aligner therapy alternative to traditional braces. With SureSmile, patients use trays that are customized for their smile and can help them achieve the results they desire in a very timely manner.
Instead of using brackets that are glued to the surfaces of the teeth and combined with adjustable guide wires, SureSmile Orthodontics uses trays. Impressions of the patient’s smile are taken at our office with specialized digital technology. Software is used to create a series of aligner trays to get the patients from start to finish.
Each tray is worn by the patient for at least 20 hours a day and two weeks at a time. As patients progress through their treatment, their teeth will be properly aligned by the end of the journey when compliance is met.
Most of the patients who visit our team at Centre Place Dental in Lincoln, Nebraska, will be able to benefit from SureSmile orthodontics. We invite patients to visit our office for a consultation appointment and evaluation that allows us to see if the results desired are achievable with this aligner tray process. Individuals with mild to moderate malignment of the bite and teeth may be able to utilize SureSmile orthodontics to obtain their dream smiles!
Because the clear aligner trays are removable, it is simple to continue taking good care of your smile. You can remove the aligner trays from the dental arch to brush and floss as you usually would and return the trays into the mouth day and night to get the results in the quoted timeframe. Patients are given information on how to care for their trays and keep them clean as they go through the realignment process.
We are open to new patients and families and are excited to talk to you about clear aligner therapy as an alternative to more traditional metal braces!
