Patients who need or desire to straighten their teeth but don’t require traditional metal braces can achieve great results using Smart Moves invisible braces.
Similar to Invisalign, this clear retainer system can offer patients of ALL ages the opportunity to treat a variety of cosmetic or dental problems with clear, removable retainers that can treat mild to moderate orthodontic issues. Smart Moves can offer dental patients the benefit of treatment that is truly “invisible”!
While young patients and teens appreciate the convenience of Smart Moves, adult patients who either need or desire orthodontic treatment really love being able to use braces that are “invisible”!
Dr. Andrew Cobb, DDS, of Washington, D.C. recommends the use of the Smart Moves clear retainer system when appropriate because of the added benefit of being able to maintain good oral hygiene during treatment: the retainers can be removed for brushing and flossing each day. No more food particles being lodged between or behind metal braces! This also helps to prevent tooth discoloration and the development of oral health issues such as gum disease during treatment.
Dr. Cobb may suggest the use of the Smart Moves system to correct cosmetic issues and other dental health concerns that are not severe enough to require more extensive orthodontic treatment, including the use of traditional metal appliances.
Orthodontic treatment is most successful when the patient is committed and adheres to the care prescribed by Dr. Cobb, including dietary restrictions: often a requirement with traditional metal braces. Smart Moves patients will find it easy to follow the treatment plan due to the ease and comfort with which the clear retainers can be removed for cleaning, dental visits and changing into the next retainer. This can be especially important for younger patients who may not be as enthusiastic about orthodontic treatment! In addition, the Smart Moves retainers will not irritate the soft tissues of the mouth, a common problem for patients using metal braces- especially children and teens.
