Faster Braces, Better Smiles
We are Kelowna’s #1 SureSmile ® provider. By pairing this innovative treatment option with our metal and clear braces, we’re able to combine the pinpoint precision of digital imaging with the straightening power of braces. This ensures patients get outstanding results in less time when compared to conventional methods. Studies have shown SureSmile® can decrease your treatment time with braces by an average of 29%!
How Does SureSmile® Work?
First, Dr. Scramstad takes digital scans of your teeth and SureSmile creates a 3D model of your mouth. He’s able to see how your teeth fit together from every angle to create the most accurate diagnosis. He can also show you what your new smile will look like before you start treatment.
Dr. Scramstad uses SureSmile software to develop your treatment plan. He can map out your tooth movements and visualize different outcomes directly on a virtual simulation of your mouth to determine the ideal final position of your jaws and teeth. He designs a smile that works for your unique facial features.
The SureSmile system instructs a robotic machine (yup, robots are involved) to bend shape-memory archwires according to Dr. Scramstad’s specifications. The robotic customization offers accuracy to within one-tenth of a millimeter. That’s something that can’t be matched with manual wire bending. Since it’s so precise, fewer adjustments are needed, saving you time, and treatment is more comfortable.
What is SureSmile?
SureSmile is an advanced orthodontic technology that lets Dr. Scramstad truly customize your braces treatment in order to more predictably and efficiently shift your teeth into place. After he creates your personalized treatment plan, a custom archwire is crafted just for your smile using robotic wire-bending technology. Since the wire is designed especially for your mouth, it delivers the perfect amount of force to give you results more quickly and with less discomfort.
