Contact our office today to schedule your consultation to see if SureSmile is the right orthodontic treatment option for you.

How does SureSmile Work?

Unlike traditional metal braces that use brackets and wires to straighten a patient’s smile, SureSmile utilizes clear plastic aligners that work just as efficiently

While metal braces easily stand out from the complexion of a patient’s smile, SureSmile’s clear plastic aligners are nearly invisible, making it also most impossible for most people to notice you’re receiving any orthodontic treatment at all.

Every one to two weeks, simply replace your current aligner with the next one in your treatment plan to continue your treatment. That’s it. No brackets to break, no wires to cause you any discomfort. Just an expertly designed and easy-to-use system that will straighten your teeth in a short amount of time.

How do I get SureSmile?

Your first step towards getting the smile you’ve been dreaming of is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Travelstead.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Travelstead will perform a comprehensive dental exam to determine the current state of your oral health. If you make a good SureSmile candidate, Dr. Travelstead will proceed with taking x-rays and photos, and use a scanner to create impressions of your teeth. Those impressions will then be sent off to the lab where your aligners will be custom created.

Once your aligners are finished, we’ll have you visit our office again so our Corvallis SureSmile dentist can discuss how to properly use the aligners and your orthodontic treatment plan. Just pop in the first aligner to begin your treatment. Dr. Travelstead will periodically check your progress and give you the next set of aligners. You’ll need to wear your aligners at least 22 hours a day as you continue to make steady progress through each treatment step.

Advantages of SureSmile

SureSmile has several advantages over traditional braces, including:

  • Clear plastic aligners allow you to undergo treatment discretely so you don’t feel self-conscious about wearing braces.
  • SureSmile aligners are removable, making it easy to practice the same quality oral hygiene needed to keep your teeth healthy and looking their best.
  • Removable aligners means not having to give up any of your favorite foods during your orthodontic treatment.
  • No wires or brackets means less pain and discomfort from pinching or poking.
  • SureSmile aligners don’t need to be adjusted or tightened, allowing you to make fewer visits to see your Corvallis SureSmile dentist.

Don’t wait to get the straighter, healthier-looking smile you’ve been wanting. Contact our office today to schedule your SureSmile consultation and begin the process of taking back your smile.
