Nowadays, crooked teeth and misaligned bites can be a thing of the past. No more do you have to live with an imperfect smile. Instead, you can achieve a healthy, beautiful appearance thanks to a new and innovative orthodontic treatment known as SureSmile clear aligners. At Epic Family Dentistry, Dr. Azmoodeh uses advanced technology and superior software to create the most precise aligners that are virtually invisible. Not only do you have the opportunity to receive more subtle treatment, but you will find that results are achieved much quicker than alternative solutions (i.e. traditional braces).

As just one of many orthodontic treatments, SureSmile aligners are clear, plastic trays that work to gently shift your teeth into alignment. This not only improves the health of your smile but its aesthetic, too. Apart from the more discreet method of treatment, SureSmile is much less invasive and easier to maintain than traditional metal braces.
While some patients might find that SureSmile is not the right treatment for their individual needs, others may discover there’s no better solution than these clear, flexible, and fast-acting aligners. For those who choose SureSmile, here are a few of its many benefits:
When you arrive for your initial consultation, you and Dr. Azmoodeh will discuss your overall goals and what you hope to achieve with SureSmile. After performing an examination of your oral cavity, he will determine if these aligners are right for you. If so, digital impressions will be taken of your smile, which will begin your treatment planning process.
Using advanced software and technology, your dentist will analyze your bite and oral structures based on a 3D model of your teeth. By using the SureSmile software, he will create a customized plan and blueprint for your custom aligners. Not only will this allow you to see the movement of your teeth as they progress through treatment before you even begin, but this will ensure your aligners mimic the exact movement of your teeth, so everything aligns perfectly by the time you’re done with SureSmile aligners.
Once you receive your aligners, you will be expected to wear them 22 hours each day, only removing them when eating, drinking, or cleaning your trays. After wearing your aligners for 2-3 weeks, you will swap out your current set for the next ones in the series. Depending on your individual case and its complexity, treatment can last anywhere from 3-12 months.
