Do you dream of straightening crooked or gapped teeth, but don't want the hassle of metal braces?
Clear aligners are an orthodontic alternative that straightens your teeth using smooth, clear, and removable aligner trays.
Dr. Frederick Hoffer and Dr. Douglas Stilson in Redlands, CA, can give you the smile of your dreams with SureSmile® aligners.
Misalignment Concerns Are the Norm in the United States
Braces vs. SureSmile Clear Aligners
There are many benefits to choosing SureSmile aligners over traditional metal braces, including:
SureSmile uses clear trays instead of metal wires and brackets. Unlike conspicuous metal braces, clear aligners are virtually undetectable when worn.
Because the aligner trays are removable, it is easier to maintain your oral health while undergoing treatment, as there are no wires or brackets to brush around.
No Diet Restrictions
There are no diet restrictions with orthodontic aligners, because you remove the clear aligners before eating. Popcorn, nuts, bagels, and more are all safe to eat during treatment.
On average, orthodontic treatment with clear aligners is faster than traditional braces.
The SureSmile Difference
Why We Prefer It Over Invisalign
SureSmile clear aligners are quite comparable to the popular clear aligner brand, Invisalign. However, one aspect of SureSmile treatment that stands apart from other clear aligner treatments, such as Invisalign®, is the unique SureSmile VPro™ Vibration Device. Gentle vibrations are delivered with this device, which in turn help ease discomfort and encourage your aligners to fit properly into place. Studies have found that five minutes of daily vibrational therapy leads to a noteworthy decrease in treatment timelines. Vibrational therapy can help you align your treatment time closer to the goals initially set out by your dentist.
The VPro device also led to an increase in levels of cytokines, which can help facilitate orthodontic tooth movement and lower the levels of pain and discomfort during your treatment. The VPro device is just one of the ways that SureSmile stands out in the orthodontic world as an effective and transformative treatment for patients struggling with tooth misalignment.

Clear Aligner FAQ From Our Redlands, CA, Patients
Shouldn't I See an Orthodontist?
There's no need to see an orthodontist if you want effective orthodontics treatment. Our dentists are trained to straighten teeth with SureSmile. What's more, an orthodontist focuses only on orthodontic issues. The dentists at Redlands Family Dentistry offer a variety of treatments for comprehensive care. This means families in Highland, Loma Linda, and nearby can get all the dental care they need in one convenient location versus visiting an orthodontist and a dentist separately.
How Does SureSmile Compare to Invisalign?
Invisalign stands as one of the most recognized brands for clear aligners, but SureSmile closely rivals it in several aspects. Both excel in customization, as they are crafted to snugly fit your unique gum line and can incorporate attachments to facilitate precise tooth adjustments. When considering clear aligner treatments, SureSmile strongly parallels Invisalign, outshining other brands such as Byte®, NewSmile, or Smileie.
Are Clear Aligners Painful?
While discomfort may occur the first day or two after changing your aligners, pain at this time is minimal compared to braces. Orthodontic patients treated with clear aligners, such as Invisalign or SureSmile, report lower levels of pain in the initial days of treatment than patients treated with fixed appliances, like braces. Plus, there will be no hard metal edges or wires to hurt the soft tissue in your mouth.
We're the Practice Other Dentists Trust
Let me start by saying I am a dentist/local orthodontist, so I know a lot about quality dentistry and service. I met Dr. Hoffer about 10 years ago, and have had mutual patients with him over that time. I heard about the great experiences his patient’s had in his office, and I saw the quality of his work.View on Google
