What can you tell me about the Smile Care Club?
Jessica B. – Flagstaff, AZ
The SmileCareClub is, in essence, a do it yourself Invisalign treatment. There are some differences.
- Your treatment is not monitered by a dentist, so if something goes wrong, you’re on your own.
- A dentist looks at pictures of your teeth, to see if you’re a good candidate. That might work to tell if there is a crowding issue. Unfortunately, he or she is not likely to be able to tell if you have gum disease. That could be a serious issue, because if you have gum disease, the shifting of your teeth could cause them to come loose.
- With Invisalign you switch aligners every two weeks, with SmileCareClub every four.
It possible this will work. I would just be concerned about the possibilities of things going wrong and not having an orthodontist or dentist who does orthodontic work to keep his or her eye on things.
