York, PENN.—Dentsply Sirona's new SureSmile aligners are designed and produced based on a digital impression scan and 2D or 3D imaging. Clinicians can use the newly designed Elemetrix software where all the data, including a photo of the patient's face, are uploaded. An interactive diagnostic tool registers the digital treatment plan to the patient photo to ensure an ideal smile design.
Dentsply Sirona presented this concept for U.S. market release at Dentsply Sirona World. With the new product, orthodontists and general practitioners can offer patients more treatment options and different price models with one versatile platform. To ensure maximum flexibility, SureSmile aligners are available with choices ranging from all-inclusive pricing to pay-per-aligner, as well as in-office “DIY” aligner design.
SureSmile aligners are designed and fabricated at a Dallas TechCenter that employs clinicians and advanced digital technicians with decades of 3D model experience. Automated staging and attachment placement ensure a high plan acceptance rate and the clinician remains in control by having the discretion to design an aligner that fits the patient. For example, when ordering the design and production, the practitioner may intervene in the Elemetrix software, if desired, to drive patient customization.
"Our goal was to design a full-service product for all clinicians, delivering a clinically proven and clinician controlled clear aligner system,” said Brad Clatt, group vice president orthodontics at Dentsply Sirona. "The unique linking of ceph to 3D model and smile photo enables more biologically achievable results that support faster treatment time. The clinician has ultimate control over the treatment plan with a comprehensive tool kit that allows for full personalization as no two patients are alike."
