SmileDirectClub Introduces Aligners with Comfort Sense™
Company’s second-generation aligners engineered to make teeth straightening more comfortable and tooth movement more predictable
Groundbreaking technology enables precision-cut aligners with graduated thicknesses
NASHVILLE, Tenn., Jan. 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SmileDirectClub, Inc. (Nasdaq: SDC), the next generation oral care company with the first medtech platform for teeth straightening, today introduced SmileDirectClub Aligners with Comfort Sense™ technology, designed to make clear aligner treatment more comfortable and tooth movement more predictable. This Smile Advancement is one of the Company’s numerous telehealth innovations and patents driving the future of oral care.
Comfort Sense technology features the Company’s patented laser technology that precision-cuts aligners for a smoother fit, which, combined with the variable thicknesses of the aligners and doctor-prescribed and monitored treatment plans that start with lighter movements to ease customers into treatment all result in a more comfortable fit and treatment for customers from start to finish. Comfort Sense technology will be used in all SmileDirectClub Aligners and Nighttime Aligners. All SmileDirectClub Aligners are made of BPA-free materials and have a matte finish to match the appearance of natural teeth.
“One of the primary concerns people have when considering whether to straighten their teeth is if the process will be uncomfortable or painful,” said Dr. Jeffrey Sulitzer, Chief Clinical Officer, SmileDirectClub. “The Comfort Sense technology used to manufacture our aligners helps ease customers into treatment more comfortably by using a next generation of laser technology and by gradually increasing the thickness of the aligner to safely and gently move teeth. This makes it easier for patients to follow the wear requirements of their doctor-prescribed treatment plans and get the smile they’ve always wanted.”
SmileDirectClub is the largest vertically integrated clear aligner company that manufactures all of its aligners in the U.S. The company’s state-of-the-art FDA-certified and registered Tennessee manufacturing facility features one of the largest fleets of 3D printers in North America.
