Suresmile & Acceledent Braces
SureSmile doctor Llon Clendenen, DDS, uses advanced 3-D imaging, virtual simulations and robotically bent archwires customized for your treatment. When the SureSmile wire is inserted into your brackets, each tooth moves more directly to the prescribed position. Your treatment is faster with Suresmile, because they move with precision that was never before possible. And all with impression-less scanning! You can say goodbye to biting down into molds.
First, SureSmile creates a 3-D computer model of your bite by using advanced imaging technology to scan your teeth. The 3-D images can be captured with the OraScanner or Cone Beam Computed Tomagraphy (CBCT). This scan procedure is the beginning of your SureSmile treatment.
FAST, COMFORTABLE TREATMENT
Next, with the 3-D model, Dr. Clenenen can now see your teeth and how they fit together from an angle. SureSmile Treatment Planning software provides virtual simulation tools that allow your doctor to determine the final position of your teeth and the most effective plan for your unique treatment needs.
Finally, once your treatment plan is determined, SureSmile directs a robot to ben a shape-memory alloy archwire according to Dr. Clendenen’s prescription. This wire is designed to deliver gentle forces to move your teeth consistently and directly to the desired finishing position.
ACCELEDENT SPEEDS ORTHO TREATMENT
By inserting the mouthpiece fitted around your existing orthodontics and wearing the activator for 20 minutes every day, AcceleDent Aura can speed up tooth movement through the use of SoftPulse Technology®. Faster tooth movement may decrease the duration of your orthodontic treatment and may help to make your orthodontics more comfortable.
