Robots are beginning to improve how we do many tasks, from cleaning a house to moving inventory in a warehouse. Now they are improving how our Boca Raton, FL and Coral Springs, FL orthodontists can straighten teeth.
In our office, we use the latest technology to attain the best results. As we like to say: Amazing things can happen when technology meets experience. One of the most amazing dental developments in recent years is SureSmile®, a system that uses robotics to attain precisely straightened teeth in a shorter time than conventional braces. We have since treated over 10,000 patients with this revolutionary technology.
An Orthodontic Option That Offers Many Advantages
The SureSmile method produces more precise results than that of conventional braces. Our south Florida orthodontists will use sophisticated 3D software to plan your treatment. Then a robot, which is far more meticulous than any human, will bend the wires used for your treatment. Due to the robot’s precision, your smile will look exactly as planned.
Other advantages include:
Shorter treatment time. Several independent studies have found that suresmile treatment times are, on average, 33 percent faster than treatment times with conventional braces.
Fewer wire changes. Many braces wearers dislike adjustments, a sometimes tedious process in which your orthodontist uses pliers to bend the wires on your braces. With suresmile, a robot bends the wire. And we use a nickel titanium wire that “remembers” the shape. It’s activated by your body temperature when placed into your mouth. So adjustments are quicker and easier – and you’ll need fewer of them.
Our Orthodontists Are an Old Hand at New SureSmile Technology
Suresmile Wire Bending RobotConventional braces have been around for hundreds of years. Archaeologists have even found what appear to be metal bands wrapped around the teeth of mummies. While some 250,000 patients have received suresmile treatment in the past 17 years, it is obviously a much more recent orthodontic development.
You probably know someone who has worn conventional braces but may not know anyone who has used SureSmile. It can be exciting – but also a bit nerve-wracking – to use a newer type of orthodontia. Good thing we’ve got an acknowledged SureSmile expert in Dr. Peter Wohlgemuth, who has served on SureSmile’s clinical advisory board. We’ve improved more than 10,000 smiles with SureSmile in our Boca Raton, FL or Coral Springs, FL orthodontist office.
Both of our orthodontists are active members of professional organizations like American Association of Orthodontists, Florida Association of Orthodontists and American Dental Association, to name a few.
