Feeling confident in your smile helps boost your overall confidence and self-esteem. Orthodontic treatment has been around for a long time to help align your bite and offers many teeth straightening options. In addition to your beautiful smile, straight teeth can help to reduce cavities and other gum diseases. A recent advancement in the field is the SureSmile clear aligners, which have made orthodontic treatment even more discrete.
What are SureSmile Clear Aligners?
These orthodontic treatments work to straighten your teeth with custom-fit removable aligners gradually. It is virtually invisible, transparent, and removable, making it a popular choice or an attractive option for those who discreetly want straight teeth molded into their ideal position to achieve a confident smile. Unlike traditional braces that rely on wires and brackets, clear teeth aligners are made with visible plastic materials and can be worn for 18-22 hours daily. Changing them every one to two weeks as you progress through treatment is essential. Each set of aligners will gently press on your teeth to reposition them until your smile reaches the ideal alignment. Furthermore, they are removable, allowing patients to eat and drink whatever suits them. It also allows patients to brush and floss regularly while maintaining oral hygiene.
How do Suresmile clear aligners work?
The Suresmile clear teeth aligners are a custom-made series of plastic that works by placing moderate and controlled pressure on the teeth, causing them to shift into position. They don’t need wires and brackets like in traditional braces. Instead, the smooth plastic of the aligners lies flush against your teeth. SureSmile aligners trays should be in place for approximately 18 to 22 hours daily. The more time you spend with your trays, the faster the treatment process. The teeth need time to slowly and safely move into the position you desire for each aligner tray.
Benefits of SureSmile Clear Aligners
SureSmile aligners are similar to other aligning systems. However, it is discreet, making it possible for people to go about their daily activities without others noticing their decision to go for orthodontic treatment. The benefits obtained from SureSmile are endless, including the following:
Easy to Maintain
It is easy to care for Suresmile aligners; all that is needed is to rinse them with lukewarm water, then gently brush them with a dedicated toothbrush, which helps remove any accumulated plaque or bacteria. As easy as it may seem, this must be done with proper attention because bacteria build-up harms your straightening teeth.
They are Virtually Invisible and Transparent
Since they are made of clear plastic that fits perfectly over your teeth, they are virtually invisible to people, which is helpful for patients who feel self-conscious about traditional metal braces, especially for adults or those interested in clear braces. Issues related to public perception get solved with Suresmile aligners.
No Brackets or Wires
They do not come with metal brackets and wires like traditional braces; hence, they are very discreet. SureSmile aligners are transparent, which makes wearing them look normal and comfortable.
They Don’t Restrict Your Food Preferences
Unlike traditional braces, you don’t need to restrict yourself to certain types of food. Due to the fact it is removable, it helps to eliminate dietary restrictions associated with traditional braces and makes oral hygiene easier to maintain. However, wearing the aligners as your orthodontist recommends is essential to ensure the desired results.
While any orthodontic treatment may cause some discomfort initially or during adjustments, SureSmile aligners generally cause less soreness than traditional braces. The smooth plastic aligners apply gentle pressure to shift your teeth, minimizing discomfort throughout treatment gradually compared to traditional braces.
