SureSmile puts together advances in precision dental technology in an orthodontic treatment in three steps. Fits, a 3D image of the mouth is taken with the handheld OraScanner, which is based on white light and active triangulation. This is then fed into a computer to create a digital rendering. The orthodontist can manipulate this model and plot the movement of each tooth. Third, robotic hands precision-bend the archwires, thereby shortening treatment time because fewer adjustments need to be made. The treatment is said to be 40% faster, less painful than traditional treatments and require fewer visits. We’ll miss those plaster casts!
