Dr. Nick Cost Talks about Clear Aligners
We use the SureSmile Aligner system. A lot of people know Invisalign that kind of household name, but… So we use SureSmile Aligners. It’s a clear aligner system that will discreetly move, and align teeth, and give you that smile you’ve always wanted. We typically work with patients who are wanting to fix crowded teeth. They have spacing in your teeth. And typically, we can fix those issues within anywhere from 6 to 12 months, depending on the case.
So we can fix these issues pretty quickly for you. And the great thing is that, you know, patients that go through this process, they tell me all the time, like, “People don’t even know that, you know, I’m straightening my teeth. It’s fantastic.” So it’s also a gentle process. I personally went through four years of braces, metal braces, when I was a teenager.
And, man, that was sometimes a painful process, moving those teeth and getting straight teeth. And so with the clear aligners, they’re much gentler on the teeth. And so it’s a much more comfortable experience and we can do it very quickly.
