Smart Moves

Treatment is quick and convenient:

Smart Moves is a way to get the smile you have always wanted without braces. Smart moves uses a progressive series of clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. Exclusive, highly elastic materials efficiently and comfortably move teeth in less time than most other clear aligner systems. The result - treatment can be completed sooner with fewer appliances and appointments.

Removable and comfortable:

Smart Moves won’t interfere with your lifestyle. You simply remove Smart Moves to eat, brush, and floss. And unlike braces, you can still eat what you want. Each aligner is custom molded to comfortably fit your teeth without wires or metal brackets that could cause irritation.

How does Smart Moves work?

Smart Moves is a series of clear aligners that progressively move teeth without braces. Each series consists of two aligners. Each aligner is worn two to three weeks, depending on the case. Once teeth have moved into the desired position, your Smart Moves treatment is complete.

How many aligners will I need?

The total number of aligners is specific to your treatment and is determined by your doctor. Although every case is unique, most patients require between two to six aligners per dental arch to achieve correction.

How long does treatment take?

It varies with each patient. Typically, treatment takes approximately six months.

How long do I wear the aligner each day?

Your aligner should be worn 24/7 except while eating, drinking hot liquids, or playing certain musical instruments or contact sports.

How often will I need to see my doctor?

Your doctor will generally want to see you every four to six weeks to check your progress. Depending on the amount of tooth movement needed, you’ll receive a new set of custom-molded aligners to continue the straightening process.

How do I care for my aligner?

Gently remove your aligner using both hands, being careful not to twist it. Clean your aligner daily using cool water, gently brushing with a non-abrasive toothpaste. DentaSOAK® is recommended to effectively disinfect and remove stubborn debris and is available at www.dentasoak.com. Do not soak the aligner in mouthwash containing alcohol or colorant, or use effervescent dental cleansers. These could cause damage or discoloration.
