What are our SureSmile patients saying?

Now that we are well underway with SureSmile treatment at Orchin Orthodontics, we have some additional information from our SureSmile patients that will be beneficial to our patients who are getting ready for their scans to start the SureSmile process.

All of our patients agree that they are very impressed with the movement created by their SureSmile wire. Most patients reported being fairly sore the first day or two after having their first wire inserted. The discomfort was soothed by taking Advil® or Tylenol® and keeping foods on the softer side (fish, meatloaf, pasta and shredded chicken are among the favorites).

Cold temperatures relax the wires, so SureSmile recommends eating cold food and beverages to ease the ache. The flip side is to eat hot food and beverages to speed up the movement of the wires to push through the ache faster.

We have had patients try both and they report each method works so you decide which you would like to try. All SureSmile patients agree that any discomfort was well-worth it to see great results in such a brief time period. A patient just left our office and is so excited to get his braces off three months early due to SureSmile! Most patients need two-to-three wires and have told us that the subsequent wire changes are similar to traditional wire changes here. It is the first wire that packs a punch!

For more information on SureSmile and to find out if you're a candidate, please give us a call at (202) 686-5100! Happy Monday!
