Based on proven SureSmile digital technology, SureSmile Ortho (previously Elemetrix) changes the way your orthodontist approaches your orthodontic treatment, for both aligner design and indirect bonding, starting with advanced diagnostics through digital modeling. The digital technology of SureSmile Ortho enables us to design your orthodontic plan using CAD (computer-aided drafting) on a case-by-case basis to ensure ideal results.
SureSmile clear aligners are an effective alternative to traditional braces. SureSmile aligner treatment involves a system of clear, removable trays to straighten teeth. They are a great alternative if you want a straighter smile but do not want to wear metal braces, to finish off treatment if you already have traditional braces, or if you have had treatment in the past and want to make corrections to your smile.
SureSmile aligners can be used for:
- Simple relapse or moderate crowding
- Complicated adult cases in which aligners are used following a few months of fixed appliances
- Combination treatment of clear aligners and fixed appliances
- Finishing treatment with a series of aligners followed by a retainer
Indirect Bonding (IDB)
SureSmile Ortho IDB is a method of rapid and comfortable bracket placement, which allows your orthodontist to apply your braces in a short amount of time while achieving exacting precision. SureSmile Ortho IDB starts with an automated digital design created from a scan of your mouth. These scans are used to create trays in a 3D printer, which attach the brackets used to straighten your teeth.
