Many people would like to have a set of perfectly aligned teeth. However, many adults fear that the boat might have sailed, and the chance to straighten their smile is long gone. The good news is that there is no age limit for orthodontic treatment. While it’s easier to straighten teeth while your jaws are still developing, it doesn’t mean you can’t do it as an adult. With SureSmile® clear aligners from Hunt Valley Dental, you can straighten your smile comfortably and discreetly without traditional metal braces.
Clear aligners, like SureSmile®, use a series of clear and removable trays to straighten your teeth. To ensure that your aligners fit snugly in your mouth, we take precise 3D images using an intraoral camera. During your consultation, Dr. Thomas Rhodes will show you virtual models of how your aligners will look like. This way, you will be well-informed and prepared when your aligners are ready for fitment.
Once in your mouth, these aligners place gentle yet constant pressure on your teeth to move them into the proper position. But for you to get optimal results, you need the dedication to wear your aligners for a minimum of 20 hours a day — only remove them when you are eating, brushing your teeth, or cleaning your aligners. With our SureSmile® system, treatment can take between 3 to 24 months, but most patients start seeing results after a few weeks.
Many Hunt Valley, Maryland patients appreciate the SureSmile® system because it yields many benefits as follows:
While traditional braces do the job, clear aligner treatments produce faster results, especially if you wear them as directed. Besides, you don’t need numerous dental visits since there are no wires or brackets that require frequent adjustments.
