At Southeast Orthodontics, we strive to give the safest, most efficient, and most comfortable care possible. Our experienced and well-trained staff will guide patients smoothly through each treatment step along their orthodontic journey, starting from their very first appointment. We know you wouldn’t have it any other way! To guarantee this promise for all our treatment options, we use SureSmile orthodontic technologies, the best and most advanced tools in the orthodontic appliance industry. 

From planning software, appliance fabrication, and support services, SureSmile has our back and yours. Over the next few blog posts, we’ll be introducing you to some of the SureSmile tools we use in our office to create your healthy, beautiful smile.

Anyone who’s ever had braces is familiar with orthodontic brackets (the little metal structures affixed on each tooth that hold the orthodontic wire in place). Traditionally, brackets are applied one at a time with a strong orthodontic glue that’s dried with a special light. Using SureSmile’s powerful technology, our doctors can evaluate your 3D digital impressions and place the orthodontic brackets comfortably and accurately on a 3D digital model of your teeth. This allows our doctors to make as many adjustments as needed before the brackets are applied. Once the brackets are arranged, they are adhered to the patient’s teeth simultaneously with a custom transfer tray, which saves so much time and discomfort for the patient. SureSmile technology even allows us to generate simulations of projected tooth movement over time, which helps confirm correct bracket placement—if that doesn’t sound like the future, we don’t know what does!

SureSmile Indirect Bonding offers many features that historically have been challenging for orthodontists to control, such as:

-Efficient and comfortable bracket placement
-Completely adjustable bracket and tooth position
-Simulations of projected tooth movement

We are committed to educating ourselves and you on the most cutting-edge technology available to offer the most comfortable and satisfying patient experience. Ask us about SureSmile the next time you’re in our office and stay tuned to our blog to learn about more awesome ortho tech tools!
