Many patients wish they could straighten their teeth. However, the idea of getting metal braces can be a major turn-off. Several patients worry that metal braces may negatively impact their professional and personal lives. Fortunately, metal braces are not the only way to straighten your teeth! At Arrowhead Foothills Dentistry, we offer SureSmile Orthodontics: a revolutionary clear braces system that will help align your teeth.
Compared to metal braces, SureSmile Orthodontics offers a multitude of benefits, including:
- Fast Treatment Plans: Metal braces usually take up to two years to align and straighten your teeth. SureSmile can cut the straightening process by a fraction of the time. With proper care, it should only take a year and a half to straighten your teeth.
- Virtually Unnoticeable: Because SureSmile is transparent, many of your peers and relatives shouldn’t notice them. Your smile can still look beautiful and unobstructed in photos! Feel confident and straighten your teeth at the same time!
- Removable: SureSmile shouldn’t affect your daily oral hygiene routine and everyday activities. Take the aligners out when you eat or drink. You can still enjoy all the foods you love! You will also remove the aligners when you brush and floss your teeth.
Your SureSmile treatment will first begin with a consultation where your dentist will determine if this is the best straightening method for you and your circumstances. If you are a candidate for SureSmile Orthodontics, your dentist will take molds and 3D scans of your teeth. These impressions and images will be used to shape your aligners, ensuring a snug, comfortable fit when they arrive.
At Arrowhead Foothills Dentistry, we offer three different treatment plans. The first is the limited 6 option, where you’ll receive 6 aligners. This is best for people who have minor alignment issues or slightly crooked teeth. The second option is limited 12 which provides 12 sets of aligners. Finally, there is the unlimited option, where you’ll be given as many aligners as it takes to give you a straight, even smile.
