CHARLOTTE, N.C., US/ BENSHEIM, Germany: Dentsply Sirona, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of professional dental products and technologies, has introduced SureSmile retainers as part of its clear aligner treatment. This newest addition is part of the brand’s ongoing commitment to providing dentists with clear aligner solutions for a comprehensive treatment approach throughout the patient journey.

The new SureSmile retainer is designed for 12-month wear in order to maintain tooth alignment at the end of treatment. SureSmile aligners are designed to move teeth, whereas SureSmile retainers are designed to hold teeth in place to prevent relapse. SureSmile aligners and retainers have the strength to protect teeth from the damage caused by bruxism without compromising clinical effectiveness when under orthodontic treatment and used as prescribed.

“When patients complete treatment, it’s important to offer a product that will protect their investment of time and money while maintaining their new healthy, confident smiles,” said Dr Manal Ibrahim, who owns practices in Naperville and Shorewood in Illinois in the US.

By drawing on 20 years of experience in digital planning for orthodontic treatment, SureSmile combines its unique understanding of patients’ needs with advanced materials and technology. It provides treatment plans offering a comfortable and streamlined experience having highly predictable results that give patients the confidence boost that comes with a straighter smile.

As part of its efforts to promote World Oral Health Day 2022, Dentsply Sirona recognises that oral health is central to every person’s overall health, happiness and well-being and is dedicated to making a positive impact on the oral health—and the quality of life—of people around the world.
