Braces Q & A

What are the benefits of traditional braces?

Dentists have been using traditional braces to fix misalignment for many years. Braces offer a number of benefits, including:

  • Improve your smile
  • Straighten teeth in complex cases
  • Correct dental issues
  • Give the dentist more control over the movement of your teeth
  • Are less expensive than clear aligners
  • Are fun for kids decorating their teeth with colored brackets

Braces today are also a lot different than they were years ago. The brackets are smaller and less noticeable, and the treatment time is significantly reduced due to the use of titanium wires.

Children, teens, and adults can wear braces.

What types of conditions can braces fix?

Braces can fix:

  • Misaligned or crooked teeth
  • Overcrowding or gapped teeth
  • Overbite or underbite
  • Bad bite

What is SureSmile®?

SureSmile® Clear Aligners are designed to ensure they fit comfortably, promote better oral hygiene and deliver the exact tooth movements needed to achieve your ideal smile.

How do SureSmile Aligners work?

SureSmile® is an orthodontic treatment that works to gradually straighten teeth through the wearing of a series of clear, custom-fit, removable aligners. There are no brackets or wires like traditional metal braces.

Are SureSmile Aligners for me?

SureSmile® Aligners are an aesthetically pleasing alternative to braces, especially for minor tooth movements that improve your smile. Specifically, they are for use with teens and adults, from simple to complex cases such as: crowded teeth, spaces and over/underbites. A SureSmile dental professional can assess your needs and recommend the best treatment plan for you.
