Smile Direct Club vs Invisalign – Whats The Difference?
Today on Friday Focus, Dr. O El-Hilal from iSmiles Orthodontics, your Orthodontist in Irvine, discusses the difference between Invisalign and Smile Direct Club.
I’m Dr. O and I will discuss the major difference between Invisalign and Smile Direct Club and Invisalign.
Essentially, they are both clear plastic aligner systems that are custom designed to move teeth. The major point of differentiation is that Smile Direct Club takes a do-it-yourself approach. It gives patients the freedom to conduct orthodontic treatment under their own supervision.
The Invisalign treatment system is controlled by your dentist or orthodontist who has received extensive training in orthodontic treatments. They are Invisalign certified.
So, the big difference is that Invisalign near you is supervised by a professional, and Smile Direct Club is unsupervised.
Both aligners are used to move teeth. As a consumer, you must determine whether you are comfortable enough to do the work yourself, or have a highly trained, certified specialist – whom you know and trust – supervise every aspect of your treatment program.
