The next stage of the Suresmile process is to capture a three-dimensional scan of the patient’s teeth. This can be done with either a very accurate 3D x-ray machine or an optical scanner called the Orascanner. This digital “impression” is then electronically forwarded to the technicians at Suresmile.
Once the digital lab at Suresmile determines that the scan information is accurate, they pass it along to the modeling team (step two). These technicians convert the scan data into a digital model that has separate, movable teeth.
In the third step, the orthodontist prescribes the final position of each tooth either by moving the teeth himself with a mouse or through very detailed instructions to the digital lab. Dr. Feinberg as the orthodontist alone determines the diagnosis, treatment plan, and biomechanics and physics necessary to move the teeth to their optimum positions. A 3-D model of your teeth allows us to analyze your bite from every possible angle.
Finally, the step you’ve all been waiting for, Step 4 is all about the robots! The Suresmile precision robots create custom archwires. This is the definition of truly personalized orthodontic care. After the orthodontist has placed the teeth in their ideal positions on the digital model, the Suresmile software quickly calculates the exact shape of the wire necessary to move the teeth into those positions. These robots use Dr. Feinberg’s prescription to create wires incorporating all of the steps, tips, torques, and angulations necessary to achieve the desired result. It normally takes a human wire bender (a traditional orthodontist) 6 to 12 months of “trial and error” to get these adjustments just right. The Suresmile robots get it right the first time, every time.
The fifth and final step of the process is inserting the wires into the patient’s mouth. Because the wires are created “with the end in mind,” the change in the alignment of the teeth after just one visit is nothing short of amazing. Each and every movement of each and every tooth is calculated to create the beautiful, healthy smile of your dreams.
Now that’s sure to make you smile!
