SureSmile Clear Aligner Treatments
The look of your smile is often a result of your oral health and how well you care for your teeth. However, there are some issues that you have no control over. Teeth that are misaligned, gapped, or crooked are often issues you have no control over, although they can still lead to significant embarrassment. When you visit Dr. Jonathan Titus at Titus Dentistry in Middletown, Indiana, Anderson, Pendleton, and Muncie, you can benefit from a straightened, aligned smile thanks to SureSmile Aligners. SureSmile is a trusted orthodontic treatment that uses comfortable, clear aligners to straighten and align teeth in a way that is discreet and effective. What is the difference between Invisalign and SureSmile, and more importantly, which is better?
Is There a Difference Between Invisalign and SureSmile?
When looking at the actual treatments, there is not much difference between Invisalign and SureSmile. Both treatments utilize clear aligners which are removable, virtually invisible, and correct dental issues, including crossbites, underbites, crooked teeth, gapped teeth, and crowded teeth. Both treatments address these issues in a discreet and comfortable manner for the patient. Results between the two treatments are very comparable as well.
The biggest difference between the two treatments is that Invisalign uses a patented material called SmartTrack to manufacture its aligners. In contrast, SureSmile uses the materials that Invisalign used prior to the development of SmartTrack. Invisalign claims that the SmartTrack material is more comfortable than any other clear aligner on the market. Still, market testing has shown that many patients do not see a massive difference between SmartTrack and other clear aligners. Suresmile aligners are slightly thinner than Invisalign aligners and have more torque control. In the end, the difference between the two treatments is negligible at most, and it really just depends on what you are looking for. SureSmile has consistently produced comparable results to Invisalign, so choosing SureSmile does not mean you are compromising the quality of your treatment.
