SureSmile® Boosts Clinician’s Confidence in Recommending Clear Aligner Therapy to Patients

Megan Weisenberger, DMD

For Megan Weisenberger, DMD, clear aligners didn't exactly provide the results she was seeking in her Cincinnati, Ohio, practice until she found the right product and technology for her-SureSmile® aligners from Dentsply Sirona Orthodontics.

"For years, I tried to get comfortable with another aligner system, but I became discouraged when I wasn't seeing the results that I was hoping for and eventually started doing less and less orthodontics in my practice," she says. "At the same time, my practice became fully digital, so with my Dentsply Sirona Primescan intraoral scanner, it was an easy switch for me to turn to SureSmile.

"I have been using SureSmile aligners for about 3 years now and have been very impressed with the results and have been treatment planning more and more ortho in my practice as a result," Weisenberger says. Not only was she pleased with the implementation process, but she notes that both the technology and her outcomes have continued to improve.

"I believe the use of intraoral scanners and the 3D models used to produce the aligners is the real ‘game changer.' SureSmile's models have proven to be outstanding in accuracy and reproducibility. Ease of use and patient experience has been so simple, so clean," she comments. "It was so easy to integrate SureSmile into my everyday workflow. Being able to send my scans to SureSmile through the Connect Center on my Primescan has made uploading patient data seamless. In under a minute, my scans are uploaded into the SureSmile software, and I can start creating my prescription for a treatment plan."

The speed and simplicity with which she can immediately start treatment has also been a major plus for Weisenberger's patients. She says on average she has seen 50% fewer refinements as compared to other aligners and 3 months' shorter treatment time. She also is able to use fewer attachments.

"SureSmile has made me very confident in recommending clear aligner therapy to my patients," Weisenberger attests, adding that the customer and educational support she receives from the manufacturer is second to none. "I know patients are going to get great results in a timely manner and are going to be proud of their new smile. SureSmile has been a great addition to my practice, and I am able to utilize it in so many ways, whether it's a relatively easy case of relapse from previous ortho treatment or a complex case to help drive restorative treatment."

"From my patients' point-of-view, the feedback I get is that they're shocked at how comfortable and unnoticeable the aligners are. Patients are amazed at how quickly treatment seems to go, and they have been loving the results."
