Smart Move Invisible Braces
Smart Move Invisible Braces offers our patients a discreet way to straighten their teeth. Unlike the traditional metal braces, Smart Move uses aligners that are removable and undetectable. Additionally, Smart Move is more affordable than any other aligner system and is just as effective for a straighter, more attractive smile!
What are Smart Move Invisible Braces?
Smart Move Invisible Braces are a modern approach to straightening teeth. Instead of using metal brackets that are uncomfortable and unattractive, Smart Move uses two sets of clear, plastic aligners that gently shift teeth into place.
Smart Move’s aligner system is designed to fix various dental problems including:
- slight rotations
While most aligner systems only move teeth up to 1/2 millimeter per stage, Smart Move’s Invisible Braces are twice as effective because they move teeth up to 1 millimeter per set of aligners.
It is important to note, however, that Smart Move Invisible Braces are designed only to treat minor misalignments of the anterior teeth. For severe cases of misalignment, Smart Move may not be the best solution.
The Smart Move Invisible Braces Process
Once you have decided that Smart Move Invisible Braces are for you, Dr. Compton will evaluate your oral structures in order to estimate the amount of corrective stages needed for your teeth.
Next, he will make several impressions of your teeth to be sent to the Smart Move Laboratory. These impressions will be used to create your custom aligners and to gauge the exact number of steps needed to shift your teeth into proper alignment.
You will receive two aligners from Smart Move. The Smart Move process uses two aligners per setup for each stage of movement. The amount of setups needed is dependent on the patient’s case and dental needs.
- Aligner #1: created from soft and flexible material with a smooth, comfortable liner. This aligner begins the process by providing controlled movement.
- Aligner #2: created from hard material that is not flexible. This aligner completes the movement for the setup.
Each aligner is worn for 2 to 3 weeks. If your teeth are not correctly aligned at the end of each setup, another impression will be taken and you will receive additional aligners until your teeth are perfectly aligned!
Caring for your Smart Move Invisible Braces
You should wear your aligners at all times except while eating, playing some musical instruments or while playing contact sports.
Cleaning your Smart Move Invisible Braces is easy. Simply brush your aligners with toothpaste and a soft bristle brush. You can also use DentaSOAK to clean your aligners. Pace aligners in a container filled with DentaSOAK cleaning liquid for 15 minutes then rinse with water.
NEVER use alcohol or any cleaner with alcohol to clean your aligners as this will cause damage to the material.
