Why is mobile teeth straightening the number 1 choice for globetrotters

The world is a large and exciting place. Modern technology has now enabled more and more people to work remotely having a few days at home often means more productive work time. Some people are taking remote work to a whole new level, and going fully mobile to take advantage of sunnier climates and lower costs in many countries abroad. These days all you need is an internet connection and you can be working. But working abroad is one thing, seeing a doctor or dentist whilst working remotely is another thing. When working in a remote sunny climate visiting a dentist monthly likely isn’t at the top of your list
Whether you’re a digital nomad working from your laptop while exploring the world, moving permanently to a new place, traveling regularly for work or again planning on your dream trip, it should hold you back when it comes to teeth straightening. Nowadays we all have opportunities to travel more and it makes attending or even booking appointments in advance very difficult.
You shouldn’t have to choose between your most important asset, your smile, and your new life. Let’s look at how can mobile teeth straightening is helping more people get the smile they want on the go.

#1 No appointment with mobile teeth straightening

From the free smile diagnostic to the final review everything is asynchronous meaning you message whenever you want and get answers from a dentist who is supervising your case later that day.
Everything is done by messaging, there is no need for “facetime” appointments; so you can be free to ask your question when commuting from work, going to meet a friend for coffee or even in your pyjamas 😉 At any time you can see all of your conversation history, past photos and track your progress too.

This freedom from in clinic appointments opens up the possibility to all those people that travel a lot at short notice for freelance projects or that are constantly on the move.
Some of us even live in multiple locations (like the co-founders) so they perfectly understand the freedom and convenience of always being able to access your doctor or dentist remotely.

We welcome new users every day who are choosing Straight Teeth Direct™ mobile teeth straightening solution because they know they will be moving or traveling soon and don’t want their treatment to be put on hold or not have the certainty of continued treatment.

#2 Shipped to you wherever you are whenever you need

Your aligners are manufactured in stages to make sure they are programmed to fit you based on your progress. That’s how we are able to guarantee results as per your agreement.
Sometimes you may be somewhere else for a few months, no problem! With Straight Teeth Direct™ you can get your aligners shipped to you at multiple locations at no extra cost.

This means you literally can travel with a rucksack and know your teeth straightening journey will be with you every step of the way.
We have users who started in Europe and finished treatment in Asia and some who have been in more than 3 locations over the course of their treatment and aligner deliveries.

#3 Mobile teeth straightening that gives you access to your orthodontist on demand

Many patients with fixed braces struggle to find a new dentist to take over their case in another country after having moved abroad. They think it’s a simple case of the local dentist “adjusting” or “tightening” the brace, but the sad reality is most dentists won’t take over what is known as a transfer case. They say they aren’t sure of the original dentists plans, and then want all the records, x-rays, models and info from the previous dentist before they will treat you and even then won’t take full responsibility for the outcome.
On top of this, many dentist will charge close to the full brace fee for taking over your case as they state it still requires the same time and the cost of the brackets is relatively insignificant. This means what you thought would be an easy appointment becomes a nightmare of trying to coordinate two clinics.

With Straight Teeth Direct™ mobile teeth straightening platform your digital orthodontist travels with you in your pocket so you never have an issue. You just take out your old aligners and pop in your new ones. Simple!

On top of this all your conversations with your dentist through the app are fully digital. There are no phone calls to forget to have or instructions to misunderstand. Perfect for those who are always in a noisy environment.

#4 Fully mobile experience – no paperwork or printing required

If you order your smilebox you’ll get a pre printed prepaid return label to make your life even easier.
Also all medical forms and agreements are signed through e signature so you can a copy through your email and can access when you need without the hassle of having to print or scan anything.
Travelling with multiple buses, coaches, trains, planes and cars means that you have to pack light, you won’t take lots of things with you and you certainly won’t be carrying lots of paper and won’t always have access to a printer either.

#5 No emergency appointments – no broken brackets or wires

With fixed braces behind your teeth or in front of your teeth you are going to run into broken brackets and the reason for this is – you have to eat! Eating and chewing takes a lot of forces and means that the brackets are constantly being tested. Unfortunately when they debond and come away this creates two problems:

1) It hurts! – loose wires and brackets are sharp! They cut your tongue, lip and can hurt when you speak. This means you have to stop whatever you are doing and then go call your dentist for an emergency appointment.
2) It takes you off track! – The loose bracket/wire can cause the other teeth to be pulled out of position. A fixed brace is a very precise appliance designed to apply forces on different teeth in a controlled level to the mm. By losing a bracket the whole force distribution is unbalanced and to make matters worse, it can increase the forces in a particular tooth in an uncontrolled way, leading to pain, looseness and adding months to your treatment.

Overall mobile teeth straightening is perfect for the globe trotting professional who wants to be able to seize all the opportunities life gives, and face life with the best smile they can.
