Dr. Hoang Truong is pleased to provide Clear Aligner orthodontics to help you straighten your teeth and achieve a more beautiful smile. Unlike traditional orthodontic treatment, Clear Aligners rely on a series of nearly invisible aligners to gently correct the alignment of your teeth. We welcome you to contact Gateway Oaks Dental at 916-649-0249 to schedule your consultation with our dentist to learn if Clear Aligners in Sacramento, California, are right for you.
Since 2006, thousands of people have successfully straightened their teeth using Clear Aligners. It is an excellent choice for those seeking a more discreet orthodontic treatment – the clear aligners used in your treatment show off your smile, and most people will not even notice that you are wearing your aligners!
At Gateway Oaks Dental we offer both Clear Correct and Sure Smile
Both Clear Correct and Sure Smile are designed to treat teeth that are crooked, crowded, or gapped. Each aligner is removable, making it easy for you to eat whatever you would like and to brush and floss your teeth afterward.
ClearCorrect is a well-established brand known for its clear aligners that are custom-made to gradually straighten teeth. The treatment process begins with a thorough examination of the patient’s teeth, and a digital scan or impression is taken to create a 3D model of the mouth. ClearCorrect aligners are then fabricated based on this model, and a series of aligners is provided to the patient. Each aligner is worn for a specific duration, typically two weeks, before being replaced with the next one in the series. ClearCorrect aligners are renowned for their transparency and comfort, allowing patients to undergo treatment without drawing attention to their braces.
SureSmile, on the other hand, is a newer clear aligner system that incorporates advanced digital technology to enhance the precision and efficiency of orthodontic treatment. SureSmile utilizes 3D imaging, virtual treatment planning, and robotic wire bending to create custom aligners and wires. This technology enables orthodontists to achieve highly accurate tooth movements and can potentially reduce treatment time. The SureSmile system emphasizes the importance of personalized treatment planning and incorporates digital tools to aid in the prediction of tooth movement.
The key difference lies in the underlying technology and treatment approach. ClearCorrect focuses on providing a comfortable and discreet orthodontic experience, utilizing custom-made aligners. SureSmile, on the other hand, leverages advanced digital technology and robotic wire bending to enhance treatment precision and efficiency.
Ultimately, the choice between ClearCorrect and SureSmile depends on individual preferences, the complexity of the orthodontic case, and the recommendation of the Dr. Truong.
