SureSmile featured on CNN last week! From Dr. Childers

Does the thought of having traditional braces for 24 months or more get you down? Our team at Childers Orthodontics understand that one of the biggest concerns for orthodontic patients with braces is the length of their treatment.

But you’re in luck, because Dr. Kyle Childers specializes in SureSmile, high-tech robotic braces that have been revolutionizing the orthodontic industry. SureSmile, which combines digital 3-D imaging, has computer-aided treatment planning and customized archwires to straighten teeth about 40 percent faster than traditional braces. With conventional braces, Dr. Childers typically makes many adjustments to wires, and sometimes the teeth don’t move as planned, so more adjustments are needed. With SureSmile, the robotic wires are sent to Dr. Childers ready to go. SureSmile means fewer wires are involved, and that usually results in fewer visits.

Last week, CNN’s own Dr. Sanjay Gupta filed a report on SureSmile and profiled a Maryland teenager named Jessica Thompson, who wasn’t particularly thrilled about traditional braces. Jessica chose SureSmile as her treatment, and she is not alone – more and more people in Benton, Harrisburg and Herrin are choosing SureSmile as their treatment option.

Dr. Kyle Childers, your local Invisalign Premier Provider

We are proud to announce that Dr. Kyle Childers is an Invisalign Premier Provider, and with a complimentary consultation, can determine if Invisalign treatment is right for you.

You’re probably thinking: OK, so what makes an Invisalign Premier Provider so special?

Every doctor who wishes to offer Invisalign treatment must undergo training with the makers of Invisalign, and can then become a certified Invisalign provider. To reach Premier Provider status however, the doctor must complete many successful cases of Invisalign treatment each year. Dr. Childers has achieved this distinction through extensive experience using Invisalign, and works with many patients in Benton, Harrisburg and Herrin each year to create beautiful smiles.

If you’re considering Invisalign treatment, you can relax by knowing that you are in great hands at Childers Orthodontics! Give us a call to schedule your free consultation for Invisalign or Invisalign Teen! Enjoy the rest of Father’s Day weekend and we hope to hear from you soon!
