About Smart Moves® Invisible Braces
Smart Moves® is a brand of invisible braces, similar to Invisalign®. Invisible braces are an excellent treatment option for patients who need mild to moderate orthodontic treatment and want to avoid traditional metal braces.
Unlike metal braces, Smart Moves® aligners are virtually invisible and won't interfere with your daily routine. The aligners can be removed, allowing you to eat and drink comfortably. Another advantage of the Smart Moves® Aligner system is its affordability compared to other aligner systems available.
How Smart Moves® Works
Smart Moves® uses a two part system of custom fit invisible aligners. The first phase of treatment uses an exclusive hard/soft aligner to gently reposition the teeth. The second phase uses a highly elastic aligner for retention and minor tooth movement.
Depending on your specific case, the dentist will create two, four, or six progressive aligners. Each aligner is worn for two to three weeks. Most patients will complete treatment in about 9 to 12 months, but for some, treatment will be as quick as 3 months.
