At SmileTRU we know there are other choices on the market. That is why we decided to create a product that is not just another choice, but an entire program that allows the practitioner to work with the patient regardless of the extent of their malocclusion. When you choose SmileTRU, you are choosing a group of dedicated professionals and a laboratory that will assist you in implementation and execution of SmileTRU every step of the way. From the most inexperienced to the advanced professional, SmileTRU and the complete SmileTRU program is designed to grow as your practice grows. We encourage you to call or email for a complete information kit or attend one of the informative SmileTRU certification courses or on-line training.
The SmileTRU Orthodontic Appliance is comprised of a series of clear positioners that are capable of moving a tooth up to .3mm and up to 2 degrees in angulation and/or torque. The space required to obtain the desired position of the teeth may be obtained by interproximal stripping (IPR), or by pre-treating the case with arch developing appliances such as the ALF appliance or the RN-Sagittal appliance.
ALF APPLIANCE (BELOW) RN- SAGITTAL
SmileTRU is based on the latest CAD-CAM Technology to allow for precise tooth movement.
THERE ARE 4 LEVEL OF SMILE TRU CASES:
Level 1 – Reset of Anterior Teeth Only
(6 trays per arch. Cosmetic alignment without disturbing the posterior occlusion)
Level 2 – Reset of Premolar to Premolar Only
(12 trays per arch)
Level 3 – Reset Full Maxillary and Mandibular Arch
(18 trays per arch)
Level 4 – PreTreatment Appliances (ex. ALF/RN Sagital) then Reset Full Maxillary and Mandibular Arch
(18 trays per arch)
The clinician has the option of requesting SmileTRU to fabricate the positioners on a three month basis, or to fabricate the entire set of positioners required to completely treat the case. The three month option allows the clinician to assess the progress of the treatment. If “In Treatment Adjustments” are required, they can be easily made by taking new impressions saving both the clinician and the patient time and money.
If the three month fabrication option is selected, SmileTRU will automatically construct the next three months of clear positioners unless the clinician contacts the laboratory requesting an “In Treatment Adjustment”. If an “In Treatment Adjustment” is required the patient should continue to wear the last set of correctly fitting positioners as retainers. This same technique can be employed if the clinician wishes to use additional positioners for final “Aesthetic Detailing”.
Most cases are treated by changing the clear positioners every 14 days. SmileTRU will provide the clinician with the approximate number of clear positioners required to treat the individual case.
