A Faster Way to Your New Smile
We are delighted to be able to offer you SureSmile®. We are the world's first practice to use the system outside of the US. SureSmile® is a new, revolutionary digital treatment system that provides orthodontic treatment using robotic hands to bend archwire precisely to your unique prescription. SureSmile® can be combined with all conventional fixed braces and represents a substantial improvement to previous treatments with fixed braces.
The computer controlled tooth movement allows us to reduce the number of treatment steps. The treatment time is shorter and requires substantially fewer check-up appointments at the practice.
Reduces your treatment time by up to 30%. For the first time, with SureSmile® it is possible to simulate different treatment options using the software's multi-volume technology before beginning actual treatment on the patient. This allows the orthodontist to plan the optimum treatment strategy for each patient to reach the computer-simulated result.
The low-friction braces facilitate faster and gentler repositioning of the teeth.
Precision and individuality
The digital treatment technique allows a very precise and predictable result. With the use of high-precision robotically bent SureSmile® archwires we can reposition each tooth exactly according to the treatment plan.
3D Volume Tomography
We are the first practice in Europe that can display dental roots digitally and move them three-dimensionally with 3D volume tomography and SureSmile®. Especially in conjunction with jaw surgery, this allows us to achieve more diagnostic levels than ever before possible.

Treatment period: SureSmile® step-by-step
Before treatment begins, the patient is examined and diagnosed in detail to work out an individualized treatment program.
At the beginning of treatment your teeth are scanned with the SureSmile® OraScanner or 3D volume tomography. A 3D model of your denture is made in the digital laboratory.
Now the entire treatment procedure is simulated for every single tooth movement with the SureSmile® 3D treatment planning software to come up with a digital design for the wires.
SureSmile® – Robots Bend Wire
The final step is for the SureSmile® robot to bend all wires according to the digital design made to measure for your denture. These "intelligent" wires are the most efficient wires in orthodontics today.
