Clear Aligners in Vernon

Your Smile

While crooked teeth and overcrowding can lead to obvious cosmetic concerns, they can also lead to less obvious problems that could affect your oral health.

When teeth come in misaligned or crooked, it can make it difficult for you to clean or floss specific areas properly. Over time, bacteria can build up and increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

Orthodontic dentistry like clear aligners can help realign your smile and give you the chance to manage your oral health properly. Find out how our team can help you elevate your smile and book your appointment today!

What Is Orthodontic Dentistry?

Orthodontic dentistry is a specific type of dentistry that focuses on straightening and realigning your teeth and bite.

If teeth come in incorrectly, it can make it difficult for you to chew certain foods. It can also create pain or tension in your jaw muscles, and increase the risk of chipping or damaging a tooth. There are a few different types of bites you may develop, including:

  • Overbite
  • Overjet
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite

By recommending an orthodontic treatment, our goal is to realign your teeth and correct your bite. It’s a process that could take months or years to complete, but the result could help preserve your oral health for your entire life.

So, What Are SureSmile Clear Aligners?

Braces are one of the most common and effective ways to help people achieve straighter teeth, but we completely understand if braces aren’t a natural fit for you or your lifestyle. You may want more flexibility if you play sports or don’t wish to change your eating habits while undergoing treatment. This is where SureSmile can help.

SureSmile is a teeth-straightening process that uses a series of aligners that you wear for 22 hours a day, every day for about 12 to 18 months. During the treatment, you gradually replace your aligners with a new set every week to gradually shift your teeth into a straighter position.

SureSmile retainers are easily removable, simple to clean, and could provide the results you’re looking for. The discretion and convenience SureSmile provides makes them a popular choice for adults wanting straighter teeth.

What You Can Expect

If you’re looking to achieve straighter teeth, SureSmile can be a fantastic choice. However, there is still a detailed process our team follows to ensure SureSmile is right for you and your needs.

To kick things off, we’ll perform a dental exam to determine what types of issues you’re experiencing and whether SureSmile can help address them. Although SureSmile aligners could help straighten your teeth, they still may not be the right choice for you. If this is the case, we’ll be happy to discuss our other orthodontic options to see if they may suit your needs better.

If we believe you’re a candidate for SureSmile, we’ll go over what the entire treatment could look like for you and address any questions or concerns you may have.

Once we talk about the SureSmile process, the next step is to create your aligners. Using 3D scanning technology, we can create your aligners and adjust them slightly to help correct the issues you’re experiencing.

We’ll create dozens of aligners over the course of your treatment, each customized to fit your bite while correcting misalignments.

Once we create your first few aligners, we’ll perform a fitting to make sure they feel comfortable and secure over your teeth. We’ll also provide instructions on how to properly care for your aligners.

Cleaning your SureSmile aligners involves:

  • Rinsing your aligners every night
  • Gently brushing your aligners with a soft toothbrush
  • Storing your aligners in their protective case when they are not in use

We’ll book follow-up appointments every 6 to 8 weeks to monitor your progress and address complications should they arise. During your follow-up appointment, we’ll also provide your next set of aligners and make adjustments to your treatment if necessary.
