Dr. Martin and SureSmile are Reinventing the Science of Braces

With SureSmile braces, we've turned orthodontic precision into an art.  Precision means less treatment time in braces, fewer orthodontic visits, and higher quality results.  By allowing Dr. Martin to visually define the desired position, SureSmile calculates all of the customization needed to deliver the doctor's plan.

This customization is then precisely translated to each patient's archwires by SureSmile robots, cutting treatment time by 30% and improving the quality of treatment results.

How it Works

Step 1

SureSmile creates a 3-D computer model of your bite by using advanced imaging technology to scan your teeth.  The 3-D images can be captured with the iTero scanner or the Cone Beam Computed Tomagraphy (CBCT).  This scan procedure is the beginning of your SureSmile treatment.

Step 2

With the 3-D model, Dr. Martin can now see your teeth and how they fit together from any angle.  SureSmile Treatment Planning software provides virtual simulation tools that allow Dr. Martin to determine the final position of your teeth and the most effective plan for your unique treatment needs.

Step 3

Once your treatment plan is determined, SureSmile directs a robot to bend a shape-memory alloy archwire according to Dr. Martin's prescription.  This wire is designed to deliver gentle forces to move your teeth consistenlty and directly to the desired finishing position.
