Your Journey to a New Smile Starts with SureSmile® Clear Aligners

Each set of aligners will put gentle pressure on your teeth to gradually reposition them until your smile reaches ideal alignment.

Questions and Advice on SureSmile® Clear Aligners

Is SureSmile® right for me?

SureSmile® Clear Aligners are a highly effective solution for addressing various bite problems, such as crowding, gaps between teeth, underbite (where the upper teeth are positioned behind the lower jaw), overbite (where the upper front teeth partially cover the lower front teeth), and crossbite (where one or more upper teeth fit inside the lower teeth). With SureSmile® Clear Aligners, you can achieve the desired dental alignment and improve the functionality and aesthetics of your smile.

How long will treatment take with Clear Aligners?

The duration of treatment for SureSmile® Clear Aligners depends on individual factors, including the specific alignment needs and desired goals of each patient. While treatment times may vary, on average, the process typically spans between 6 to 18 months. During this period, the aligners work gradually to shift the teeth into their desired positions, resulting in an improved bite and a change in your smile.

Can I eat and drink while wearing my Aligners?

Great news – you don’t need to give up your favorite foods while you’re in treatment! However, you do need to remove your aligners when eating and drinking all liquids except for cool water to retain their fit and prevent discoloration. Simply remove your aligners to eat and drink all the foods and beverages you typically enjoy, then brush your teeth before putting your SureSmile® Clear Aligners back in place.

Is a CBCT scan needed for root canal treatment?

We only recommend a small field CBCT scan for the most complex of root canal treatments, and where traditional 2-D radiographs fail to give us the all the information we need.

How much will it cost?

All treatment plans will be discussed with you at the examination appointment, along with associated costs.

Complex treatments, may need multiple visits to complete the investigations needed prior to providing an estimate. This will be printed at reception, or if preferred emailed to you.

What are the advantages of PRPs/PRGFs?

  • Stimulates cell growth and cell division, accelerating healing and regeneration in a range of treatments.
  • Reduces inflammation, swelling and discomfort after surgical procedures.
  • Reduces infection risk.
  • Helps build connective tissues.
  • Shortens recovery periods.

Is root canal treatment always successful?

With all procedures there is a possibility that it may not work. This applies to root canal treatment as well as any other treatment. There are a variety of reasons why it may not work. some of these reasons include but are not limited to:

Failure to adequately disinfect, leaving bacteria in the canal system, resulting in recurrence of infection.

Failure to instrument all the canal system.  In some teeth the root canals can be incredibly small (often as small as one tenth of a millimetre across or even smaller). Dentists who carry out a lot of root canals usually utilise high powered magnification to help them find and treat such small canals.

Failure to fill and seal the root canals adequately, allowing bacteria from the mouth to reinvade the root canal system and set up infection again.

Inappropriate instrumentation technique that does not allow for adequate disinfection and sealing of the root canals.

Severe fracture of the tooth leaving remnants that cannot be fixed again.

If the dentist feels there is a significant risk of treatment failure, possible causes will be discussed, so you can make an
informed decision regarding treatment.

What are the benefits of root canal treatment?

Saving your tooth with a root canal has the benefits of:
• A better bite and more efficient chewing.
• Keeping your natural teeth.
• Protecting your other teeth from wear and tear.
