SmileCareClub can fix minor crowding and space issues for only $900, which is an incredible savings
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) January 14, 2015
Seven out of 10 American adults have crooked and misaligned teeth, have wanted to straighten them for years, but haven’t wanted metal braces and don’t have $5k or more in their budget to cover the cost of treatment. Braces and invisible aligners (the much-preferred straightening system), done in an orthodontic office cost from $3-$6K. SmileCareClub the leader in the ground-breaking field of teledentistry, provides an alternative solution, allowing patients to straighten their teeth in only 4-8 months, at a fraction of the cost of regular braces or invisible aligners, with 24-7 oversight by licensed dental professionals - all from the comfort of their own home.
“SmileCareClub can fix minor crowding and space issues for only $900, which is an incredible savings,” said orthodontist Dr. Damon Barbieri. The clear aligners work similarly to braces, but don’t have the sharp corners. They can be removed while eating or playing sports and to brush/floss so your teeth stay cleaner. The trays are so thin and light, most people won’t notice them, providing ease in professional and social situations. “In addition to cost savings and the benefits of removable trays, patients will be able to complete the process on their schedule, at home. But they don’t have to worry about knowing how to move teeth themselves,” continued Dr. Barbieri. “The patient can contact their licensed professional with personal questions through the entire process.

Teledentistry: Dental Care from the Comforts of Home
In the US, the medical field has seen a rise in telehealth (400% increase from 2012; total available market is estimated at $50-$60 billion*) as patients seek medical attention from home or on their mobile devices. In fact, one in six medical visits were virtual this year, and that number will continue to increase*. Teledentistry came into practice in the early 1990’s to help consumers gain easy access to dental care. SmileCareClub founders realized that aligner therapy could be more affordable for consumers by using the innovative technology of 3D printing and applying the rising trend of telehealth. Even though treatment takes place at home, dental professionals around the country oversee each individual’s customized plan.*
