SureSmile – The Latest Advancement in Orthodontic Treatment
Our expert orthodontist was the first in the Charleston area to offer SureSmile. SureSmile’s use of robotic technology enables Dr. Reese to treat your smile with greater precision AND reduce your time in braces by as much as 50%!
How Does SureSmile Work?
With traditional orthodontic treatment, the orthodontist uses special tools at each appointment to manually the archwire threaded through your brackets at each office visit. With the SureSmile system, the archwire is shaped using state-of-the-art robotic technology. While the time frame for orthodontic treatment varies for each patient, the precise movements of each of your teeth are pre-planned through 3D scanning and simulation. The target position of each tooth is planned in advance, so you’ll know exactly what outcome to expect before even starting treatment.
The SureSmile system achieves your new beautiful smile in just a few steps:
- Advanced Imaging – Our Charleston orthodontist creates a 3-D computer model of your bite by using advanced imaging technology to scan your teeth. The 3-D image is captured with the OraScanner® or Cone Beam Computed Tomography. This highly technical scan allow your orthodontist to better analyze the position of your teeth and roots by showing additional tissue types, such as bone, teeth, nerves, and soft tissue.
- Precise Treatment Planning – The 3-D model shows Dr. Reese how your teeth fit together from every angle. SureSmile patented treatment planning software provides virtual simulation tools so he can determine the final position of your teeth, and design the most effective plan for your unique treatment needs.
- Robotic Accuracy – Once Dr. Reese finalizes your treatment plan, the SureSmile technical laboratory directs a robot to bend a shape memory alloy archwire according to your customized prescription. This “smart wire” is cleverly designed to consistently deliver the gentle forces needed to move your teeth to their desired finishing position.
