Beware of "At-Home" Clear Aligner Programs
In July 2019, the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) released a press release raising "serious concerns" about direct-to-consumer orthodontics, citing close to 1,000 customer complaints against SmileDirectClub, LLC, and others, to the Better Business Bureau.
The AAO goes on to state that "orthodontic aligners are meant to move teeth, which if not done correctly can lead to potentially irreversible and expensive damage such as tooth and gum loss, changed bites, and other issues – some of which may not arise immediately."
According to the press release, "The AAO believes it is in the best interest of patients to have orthodontic treatment conducted under the direct and ongoing, in-person supervision of a licensed orthodontist."
Unlike direct-to-consumer aligner services, Dr. Hunter offers semi-invisible clear aligner therapy using aligners that are custom-made from our intraoral scanner image of your teeth, and – most importantly – that is directed by an experienced orthodontist who will ensure your aligners fit properly. In addition, Dr. Hunter provides regular monitoring to ensure optimal results and prevent potentially irreversible damage.
Dr. Hunter will perform a thorough evaluation of your teeth and bite and will recommend the appropriate 'invisible' treatment options for your unique situation.
