BIRMINGHAM, Mich., February 22, 2010—Dr. Scott Tyler of Birmingham and Rochester Hills-based orthodontic practice Tyler Dumas Reyes was one of 2 U.S. orthodontists selected to speak at SureSmile conferences in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, Australia. SureSmile is a revolutionary system that uses robotics to increase precision and decrease the length of treatment time and discomfort compared to traditional braces. The practice is one of only five offices in Michigan offering the digital technology and is the leading provider out of 262 orthodontic practices nationally.
Recognized as an expert in SureSmile, Tyler gave a detailed presentation to Australian orthodontists about how this innovative digital technology has benefited patients–and the overall success of his practice.
“SureSmile has revolutionized orthodontics and is the most cutting edge technology available,” said Tyler. “I was honored to travel to Australia on behalf of SureSmile to help other orthodontists discover the extraordinary benefits their patients could experience as a result of this transformational program.”
Unlike conventional orthodontics, which relies on plaster models and 2-D imaging, SureSmile provides an orthodontist with a detailed 3-D computer model of the patient’s teeth, allowing the doctor to precisely plot individual tooth movement through the entire course of treatment—from start to finish.
In addition, by using high-tech wires customized through a robotic process, the orthodontist can move each tooth to the target position more directly. Treatment time is 35 percent faster than traditional orthodontic methods and is completed for most patients in 12 months or less. The end result is that patients experience fewer wire changes, adjustments and in-office maintenance visits, while achieving superior results.
