If you're considering clear aligners, there are several things you should know about the SureSmile® treatment process. First, let's briefly go over what exactly clear aligners are.
Clear aligners are thin, transparent plastic trays that gradually shift your teeth into place over time - similar to traditional metal braces.
However, one major advantage that SureSmile® clear aligners have over braces is that they are practically invisible - meaning that others will barely even notice that you're undergoing treatment. Additionally, clear aligners are removable, so you can take them out for eating and brushing your teeth.
This is much more convenient than braces, which can be difficult to clean around. Overall, SureSmile® clear aligners are a great choice for those looking to straighten their teeth without the hassle of traditional braces.
If you're considering SureSmile® clear aligners, be sure to talk to Dr. Nick to see if this treatment method is right for you.

What Are the Benefits of Clear Aligner Therapy?
In fact, this type of treatment is becoming increasingly popular, as it offers a number of advantages over traditional braces.
Here are just a few of the benefits of clear aligner therapy:
1. They're Practically Invisible.
One of the biggest benefits of clear aligners is that they're virtually invisible. This is a big advantage over metal braces, which can be quite noticeable.
Clear aligners are made from a clear, plastic material that's nearly indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
2. You Can Remove Them.
Another big benefit of clear aligners is that you can remove them. This is a major advantage over braces, which are permanently affixed to your teeth.
With clear aligners, you can take them out for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. This means that you won't have to change your diet or oral hygiene routine.
3. They're Comfortable.
Clear aligners are also far more comfortable than braces. This is because they don't have any metal wires or brackets that can rub against your gums or cheeks.
Additionally, because you can remove them, you can take a break from wearing them if they start to feel uncomfortable.
4. They're Faster.
Clear aligner therapy is also generally faster than traditional braces. This is because each aligner is custom-made to fit your teeth, so they can move your teeth more quickly and efficiently.
5. They're Affordable.
Clear aligner therapy is also more affordable than traditional braces. This is because the treatment is typically shorter and because there are no metal braces or other materials that need to be purchased.
If you're looking for a straighter, more attractive smile, clear aligner therapy may be right for you. Talk to your dentist about whether clear aligners are a good option for you.
Key Takeaway: Clear aligner therapy offers many benefits over traditional braces, including being virtually invisible, more comfortable, and faster.

Are There Any Risks or Side Effects Associated With Clearaligner Therapy?
While clear aligners are generally safe and effective, there are a few things to be aware of before you begin treatment.
Clear aligners are made of a soft, flexible plastic that is BPA-free. They are custom-made to fit your teeth and will not damage your enamel.
However, if you do not clean your aligners properly, they can harbour bacteria that can lead to gum disease or tooth decay. It is also important to wear your aligners as directed by your orthodontist.
If you do not wear them for the recommended 20-22 hours per day, your treatment will take longer and may not be as effective. Finally, clear aligners can cause some temporary discomfort when you first start wearing them.
This is because your teeth are moving and adjusting to the aligners. The discomfort should go away after a few days, but if it persists, please contact your orthodontist.
Overall, clear aligner therapy is a safe and effective way to perfect your smile. Just be sure to follow your orthodontist's instructions and clean your aligners regularly to avoid any potential problems.
Key Takeaway: Clear aligners are safe, effective, and comfortable, but can cause some initial discomfort. Be sure to follow your orthodontist's instructions and clean your aligners regularly.
