The incorporation of technological advances in the field of clinical orthodontics to increase treatment efficiency has led to the development of customized appliances (Insignia®), archwires (Suresmile®), and the production of devices to enhance tooth movement (Acceledent®). This review presents a comprehensive study of the literature concerning these products, and analyzes the available evidence of their efficiency. To date, one pilot study has evaluated the efficiency of the Insignia® system, three retrospective studies have assessed the efficiency of the Suresmile® system, and a few Acceledent® reports have described its effect on treatment time...

INTRODUCTION: Virtual 3-dimensional (3D) models obtained by scanning of physical casts have become an alternative to conventional dental cast analysis in orthodontic treatment. If the precision (reproducibility) of virtual 3D model analysis can be further improved, digital orthodontics could be even more widely accepted. The purpose of this study was to clarify the influence of "standardization" of the target points for dental cast analysis using virtual 3D models. Physical plaster models were also measured to obtain additional information...

INTRODUCTION: Historically, orthodontists have taken dental measurements on plaster models. Technological advances now allow orthodontists to take these measurements on digital models. In this study, we aimed to assess the accuracy, reproducibility, and time efficiency of dental measurements taken on 3 types of digital models. METHODS: emodels (GeoDigm, Falcon Heights, Minn), SureSmile models (OraMetrix, Richardson, Tex), and AnatoModels (Anatomage, San Jose, Calif) were made for 30 patients...

INTRODUCTION: The primary objective of this study was to assess the accuracy and the reliability of the SureSmile OraScanner (Orametrix, Richardson, Tex) by comparing it with other desktop 3-dimensional scanners: VIVID910 (Konica Minolta, Tokyo, Japan) and R700 (3Shape, Copenhagen, Denmark). A laser-based scanner, the SLP250 Laser Probe (Laser Design, Detroit, Mich), served as the gold standard. METHODS: Five sets of dental casts were used. First, the accuracy of each scanner was studied by comparing the 3-dimensional models created by OraScanner, VIVID910, and R700 with the gold standard 3-dimensional models of the SLP250...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness of computer-assisted orthodontic treatment technology to produce the tooth position prescribed by the virtual treatment plan. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Posttreatment models of 23 patients treated with SureSmile were digitally superimposed on their corresponding virtual treatment plan models utilizing best-fit surface-based registration. Individual tooth-position discrepancies between virtual treatment plan and actual outcome were computed...

AIM: To utilize cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) to analyze the amount of linear root resorption that occurs in maxillary and mandibular permanent incisors during orthodontic treatment when comparing the SureSmile technique with conventional edgewise treatment. In addition, patient and treatment factors that may be correlated with root resorption were studied. METHODS: The records of 28 patients (14 SureSmile and 14 edgewise) treated in an orthodontic office were used for this study...

AIM: To understand the efficiency of SureSmile treatment vs conventional treatment. METHODS: First, 12,335 completed patient histories representing different treatment philosophies and geographically diverse practices were collected. Included were 9,390 SureSmile patients and 2,945 conventional patients. Variables in these patient records included: (1) treatment time, months from bonding to debonding; (2) malocclusion class, Angle Class I, II, or III; (3) patient age, adolescents (< 18 years) or adults (≥ 18 years); and (4) patient visits, total number of treatment visits...

INTRODUCTION: Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) has become a routine imaging modality for many orthodontic clinics. However, questions remain about the amount of radiation patients are exposed to during the scans. This study determined the amounts of radiation potentially absorbed by a patient during orthodontic imaging with a CBCT machine with various scan settings compared with a conventional 2-dimensional digital x-ray machine. METHODS: The radiation exposures delivered by a next generation i-CAT CBCT machine (Imaging Sciences International, Hatfield, Pa) at various scan settings and orthopantomograph OP100/OC100 digital x-ray machine (Instrumentarium Dental, Tuusula, Finland) during panoramic and cephalometric radiography were recorded using thermoluminescent dosimeters placed inside a head and neck phantom...

OBJECTIVE: Utilize American Board of Orthodontics (ABO) cast/radiographic evaluation (CRE) to compare a series of 63 consecutive patients, finished with manual wire bending (conventional) treatment, vs a subsequent series of 69 consecutive patients, finished by the same orthodontist using the SureSmile™ (SS) method. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Records of 132 nonextraction patients were scored by a calibrated examiner blinded to treatment mode. Age and discrepancy index (DI) between groups were compared by t-tests...

INTRODUCTION: Virtual study models made their first appearance on the orthodontic market in 1999. The early systems offered two-dimensional images; reliable 3D images of study models were obtained only with the introduction of laser technology. Virtual study models have reduced the number of limitations and obstacles associated with the use of conventional plaster models and resulted in the creation of the "paperless orthodontic office". To understand their drawbacks, advantages and affordability, the different systems available for virtual dental casts were compared...

AIM: To examine the efficiency and effectiveness of the SureSmile process using the standards of the American Board of Orthodontists Objective Grading System (ABO OGS). METHODS: Three diplomates of the American Board of Orthodontics provided study casts of 62 patients whose orthodontic treatment was consecutively completed. Patients treated using the SureSmile process and a conventional approach were anonymized and randomized prior to independent scoring by two ABO OGS-calibrated examiners...

SureSmile is an all-digital system which uses new 3-D imaging and computer techniques for diagnostics and treatment planning and uses robotics to customize fixed orthodontic appliances. Treatment can be simulated in advance and different treatment strategies can be visualized; this allows detailed treatment planning. The application of CAD/CAM aims at improving reproducibility, efficiency, and quality of orthodontic treatment.

The system SureSmile (from Orametrix) has been developed on the basis of the Bending Art System (BAS) introduced in 1994 of which it is a manifold important evolution. It is a well considered combination of three-dimensional image processing, computer-assisted diagnosis, planning and realization of the treatment, which permits high quality orthodontia nevertheless capable of being reproduced in an objective manner. This article presents the system SureSmile.
