A crooked smile can make taking pictures unpleasant, but it can also cause issues with your oral health. Crooked teeth are harder to clean, and it can cause stress on your TMJ if your teeth don’t fit together properly. Vineyard Dental Group offers patients in Santa Rosa, CA, the SureSmile treatment option to straighten crooked teeth and treat issues with your bite.
What is SureSmile?
Suresmile is an advanced treatment technique that uses digital imaging to create a 3D model of your teeth. SureSmile can also superimpose the model onto an image of the patient’s face to help plan the final tooth placement in alignment with your natural features. The dentist uses the model design treatment plan to treat dental crowding and malocclusion.
SureSmile allows Dr. Saeidi to plan your treatment with precision. That means most patients can expect shorter treatment time with few adjustments to the plan, and better results once your treatment is complete. SureSmile can help patients treat:
- Crooked teeth
- Bad bite
- Dental Crowding
The SureSmile treatment process
SureSmile can be used with traditional orthodontics or clear aligner trays with Clear Smile. Many adult patients prefer Clear Correct to treat their dental issues because they are very thin and discrete, making them nearly invisible. They are also removable, so you can eat your favorite foods and keep your teeth clean easily. The treatment time for Clear Correct varies from patient to patient, but it typically takes 1-2 years to get the full results. However, many patients notice improvement within a few months.
Clear Correct works through a series of clear aligners that apply gentle pressure to your teeth. As your teeth and jaw change position, you’ll move on to the next aligner tray until the teeth have reached their final position. You’ll come into the office periodically to ensure everything is moving into place smoothly. Once the teeth have reached their final position, Dr. Saeidi will fit you with a retainer to help you maintain your results.
