SmileTRU is a series of removable clear aligners for those patients who cannot, or choose not to wear a fixed appliance.
Each aligner is designed to fit over the teeth and apply gentle forces to gradually move the teeth. Each aligner is worn for 22 hours a day for up to 2 weeks. After this time, the aligner should feel passive and you can then move onto the next aligner that has further movements built in. This step by step approach ensures that you are only applying gentle forces to the teeth which is both good orthodontic practice and minimises any discomfort when wearing the aligner.
Benefits of Smile TRU
- Adults are increasingly seeking a confident smile yet are not always willing to wear wire and brackets. As SmileTRU is virtually invisible when worn, adults can have their teeth straightened without anybody else knowing. The aligners are also removable for eating, public speaking or that Friday night date. Clear aligners offer minimal discomfort and impact on your daily routine compared with traditional Orthodontic treatment.
- SmileTRU is manufactured under exacting specifications using the very latest in digital production methods and additive layer manufacturing devices (3D printers).
