How it Works
The Smile TRU Orthodontic system involves the patient wearing clear plastic positioners that fit snugly over the top and bottom teeth, but are virtually invisible to anyone else. Slowly, over a period of months, the positioners move the patient’s teeth into new, straighter positions. Because the wearer can remove the positioners to eat, brush and floss, there are no dietary restrictions and the patient can thoroughly clean their teeth and gums. And, unlike traditional metal braces, the plastic positioners are comfortable to wear and don’t irritate cheeks and gums.
While there’s no doubt that Smile TRU Orthodontics is an excellent choice for some patients, it may not be the right choice for everyone. Dr. Russell can provide you with more information and tell you whether or not this is the best tooth-straightening method for you.
