Traditional braces do a good job of correcting orthodontic issues, but they're not the most attractive option. Dr. Omar Paredes of Shenadoah Dental Studio discusses the advantages of the SureSmile brace system for Lexington, VA residents.

The Sure Smile difference

Traditional braces use a system of wires and brackets to improve alignment. Every four to six weeks, you return to your dentist's office to have the wires tightened. The suresmile system doesn't use wires, but relies on a series of aligner trays to gradually shift teeth. Although you'll visit your dentist periodically, there's nothing to adjust with SureSmile. Movement is accomplished by wearing a new set of aligner trays every two weeks.

No more metal mouth

One of the things many people dislike about metal braces is their appearance. Since SureSmile aligners are made of clear polyurethane resin, it won't be obvious that you're wearing braces.

Improved comfort

Loose wires can poke your gums and cheeks, causing irritation and pain. When you wear SureSmile aligners, you won't have to worry about pain or irritation from wires.

A simple process

Your dentist uses digital impressions and photographs to create a computerized image of your mouth, which he consults to design your SureSmile aligners. Thanks to the 3-D image, he can create trays that are tailored to your specific orthodontic issue.

Correction of bite problems

Braces improve your appearance, but also correct bite problems. SureSmile treatment is appropriate for the correction of mild to moderate orthodontic issues, including open bites, crossbites, underbites and overbites. It can also be used to correct overcrowding and undercrowding issues.

Convenience and ease of use

You'll normally wear your SureSmile aligner trays 20 hours a day and only take them out to eat. Unlike traditional braces, you can remove your SureSmile trays if you play sports and have a practice or game, or if you want to go brace-less for a special event. Since you'll remove your trays to eat, you won't have to worry about the food restrictions traditional brace wearers face.
