Sure-Smile aligners are a set of clear plastic trays that fit over your teeth. Sure-Smile aligners are worn for 22 hours per day until treatment is complete. The aligners are designed to fit your teeth precisely and gently shift them into place.
Benefits of Sure-Smile Aligners
The benefits of Sure-Smile aligners are many. With Sure-Smile, you can achieve straight teeth in as little as 12-20 weeks, which is half the time it takes with traditional braces. Sure-Smile is also a more convenient orthodontic treatment. With Sure-Smile, you can remove your aligners for up to two hours a day. Since you can remove your aligners, you can eat your favorite foods, such as popcorn, nuts, and hard candies. You can brush and floss your teeth normally, and since the Sure-Smile aligners are smooth, you won’t have to worry about getting food stuck in your braces.
How Are Sure-Smile Aligners Used?
An aligner is a thin, clear tray that you wear over your teeth to slowly move them to the desired position over time. They’re similar to braces but without any wires involved. The trays are removable, so you don’t have to worry about getting food stuck or breaking a wire. They usually need to be worn for 20-22 hours a day to be effective. Your orthodontist will instruct you on how long to wear them each day, as well as what to eat and how to care for them.
Sure-Smile aligners are worn 20 hours a day, and removed for meals, brushing, and flossing. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position Sure-Smile has prescribed. You’ll visit Sure-Smile about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
