SmileDirectClub Announces U.S. Patents on Innovative Electric Toothbrush With Aligner Brush Head

SDC gains recognition for its cutting-edge electric toothbrushes for clear aligner users.

SmileDirectClub (SDC) is most acclaimed for its status as the first MedTech platform to offer clear aligner therapy for teeth straightening. However, this month, SDC has taken another major step forward for the oral care industry. As of October 2020, the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted two patents on SDC’s electric toothbrush with interchangeable aligner head and trackable aligner case. 

The two patents – U.S. Patent No. 10,772,714 and 10,786,339 – highlight SDC’s dedication to producing disruptive innovations in the oral care landscape. These patents recognize SDC’s innovative oral care product designs, specifically the electric toothbrushe with interchangeable aligner head and the Bluetooth-powered aligner case, which uses pioneering Tile™ location technology to prevent users from losing their aligners. The company’s clear aligner therapy and category disrupting oral care products have redefined the dentistry market, improving oral care standards for consumers worldwide.

SmileDirectClub was founded with a groundbreaking idea that changed the dental industry and increased consumer access to affordable, safe, and efficacious premium oral care,” says David Katzman, CEO of SmileDirectClub. “Innovation is in our company’s DNA and is a driving force behind every product and service we offer. We look forward to continuing to push the oral care category forward with new inventions that help consumers achieve and maintain a smile they love.”

SDC’s electric toothbrush comes with a patented aligner cleaning brush, which features a quiet, sonic, three-bristle blend that allows you to scrub your aligners your gums gently to ensure a 50 percent better clean than a manual brush.
