What is SureSmile?
When parents think of their own experience with braces as a child, they frequently recall the discomfort associated with "tightening" the braces at each appointment - not to mention it seemed to take forever to get their braces off. Oh, how times have changed!
With SureSmile®, patients complete their treatment in 40% less time, on average, over "old-fashioned" braces and with less overall discomfort.
How? Utilizing high tech 3D imaging to create a virtual model of your teeth, Drs. Sletten & Brettin are able to use powerful SureSmile planning software to precisely position each and every tooth into its optimal position. Sophisticated robots then generate custom wires based upon the unique prescription that Drs. Sletten & Brettin have created.
SureSmile wires have highly precise bends that interact with your braces to direct each tooth to move towards their final position. Unlike the heavy, stiff wires used in the past that were bent by hand at each visit, SureSmile wires are flexible and are activated by your body heat, making them more gentle to your teeth. All of the final tooth movements are pre-programmed into SureSmile wires, eliminating the need to add new, uncomfortable "tightening" bends at each appointment.
Because all teeth are simultaneously moving the shortest distance to their target position, treatment with SureSmile is incredibly efficient and there are fewer uncomfortable wire changes. With SureSmile, teeth don't move faster, they move smarter!
Drs. Sletten & Brettin are the exclusive providers of SureSmile technology in the St. Croix Valley. Patients of all ages, including teenagers, can benefit from orthodontic treatment with SureSmile.
