If you’re not already familiar with the concept of clear aligners, you wear them much like you’d wear a retainer or mouth guard. Main difference, however, is that they are built to correct crowded, spaced, or crooked teeth. Varying degrees of such as overbites, underbites, crossbites, and more can also be remedied with aligners.
Dr. Blevins recommends SureSmile to teen and adult patients that are willing to commit to wearing the aligners for 20-22 hours a day. Not wearing your aligners as instructed can result in unwanted delays to your progress and possible corrections.
Compared to traditional metal braces,work in a similar way (minus the brackets and wires, of course). The top and bottom trays are placed over the teeth, and much like braces, exert controlled pressure or force to gradually move teeth into position.
Before moving forward with treatment, Dr. Blevins will conduct an oral exam to confirm whether SureSmile aligners are right for you. Should more severe orthodontic needs be discovered, we may provide you with a referral to a local orthodontist.
