Be Careful About Smile Care Club
I have a lot of people asking about Smile Care Club. They want to know my opinion because it costs less than the invisible braces you would get under the care of the dentist. The reason for this cost difference is just that. With Smile Care Club, you are not under the care of a dentist.
Let me just say it. This is dangerous. I’ll give an example.
Recently, I came across a YouTube video of a young woman documenting a problem she was having with her Smile Care Club aligners. It took her about 20 minutes to get them in. Seriously. Here’s the kicker. It turned out when she’d finished her month three aligners, they sent her the month five aligners instead of the month four. This is serious.
It is the equivalent of the dentist doing the wrong procedure on a patient. Fortunately, this woman made a video and did it publicly. This got the attention of Smile Care Club and she (eventually) got the right aligners. The problem with this is two-fold.
First, if she had not made a YouTube video, she would probably have never gotten this straightened out which could have led to her actually losing teeth. There are countless complaints about patients who couldn’t get customer service help with problems they’ve had with their aligners. She is smart to have made it public.
Secondly, even though it was eventually dealt with, I am willing to bet there was likely some root absorption. This weakened her teeth.
If you are looking to get your teeth straightened, your safest option is to do it under the care of the dentist.
A Fun Benefit to Invisalign
With Invisalign, not only will you be certain to get the correct aligners and have a dentist to make sure your gums are healthy and no complications are arising during your treatment, but there is another cosmetic benefit.
The aligners can double as teeth whitening trays. This will enable you to straighten and whiten your teeth at the same time. It’s like giving you a mini smile makeover at a discount price.
