A double blind study conducted by Drs. Smith and Jones at the Institute for Dental Consumer Protection has found that aligners are totally ineffective in moving, straightening, aligning or otherwise positively impacting pockets, handbags or kitchen counter tops.
When asked about this landmark study, Dr. Jones said, “We have long suspected that clear aligners – whether SmileDirectClub, Invisalign or one of the generic types – have zero efficacy when it comes to improving the appearance of counter tops, handbags or jean pockets. This despite consistent, long-term attempts by many patients we observed who regularly store their aligners in back pockets, purses and on kitchen counter tops. Furthermore we have discovered that clear aligners only work when patients actually wear them 22 to 23 hours each and every day!”
Dr. Smith agreed saying, “Our results show, conclusively, that patients who wear their clear aligners in their mouths [on their teeth as directed] get much better results than those who leave them lying on the counter or keep them in their pockets.”
So there you have it. Conclusive, undeniable proof that SmileDirectClub and Invisalign are totally ineffective unless the aligners are worn faithfully and as directed.
Drs. Smith and Jones shared that they have further groundbreaking research in the works and told us that they believe they can prove that toothbrushes don’t work either… unless you stand really close to them and apply the fuzzy end to your teeth.
“Not the slick end mind you, the fuzzy end”, Jones clarified.
We look forward to hearing more from The Institute for Dental Consumer Protection soon.
