  • SureSmile® uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets.
  • The aligners are made through a combination of Dr. Emrich‘s expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology.
  • You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
  • As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position Dr. Emrich has prescribed.
  • You’ll visit Dr. Emrich about once every 6-8 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
  • Total treatment time averages 9 – 18 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
