SureSmile and Invisalign Attachments Explained

These are attachments: play the video to see them in action!

Attachments are tooth-colored shapes attached to your teeth.

SureSmile Clear Aligner treatment needs 80% fewer attachments than Invisalign Clear Aligner treatment and fewer refinements, fewer additional clear aligners.  This is why Dr. McCoy recommends SureSmile Clear Aligners over Invisalign Clear Aligners.

Attachments are like handles on your teeth that clear aligners use to be able to more predictably move your teeth into the positions that Dr. McCoy custom-designed them to be moved.

The dabbling dentist does Invisalign treatment without putting attachments on your teeth.  It’s simple for them, but ineffective for you.

Don’t forget: Dr. McCoy has been doing Invisalign and SureSmile Clear Aligners for more than twenty years and he knows what works!

Rather than wasting time and, “seeing if it works,” without using attachments, we incorporate attachments in all of Dr. McCoy’s designs.

We strive to keep you informed in a timely manner and to get the best result in the least amount of time as is possible.  The use of attachments is the most predictable way of obtaining the best result.

Thank you for learning more about clear aligner attachments and how they work.
