We probably don’t have to tell you how important your aligner case is – it’s the safest place for your aligners during treatment and then your retainer’s forever-home. Life can be stressful and keeping track of your aligners should be easy. That’s why we partnered with Tile™ to create a trackable case to help you keep tabs on where your aligners are at all times.
Our patented trackable aligner case is the first in the industry, using app-initiated technology to solve for misplaced aligners or retainers, especially after removing them to eat (remember: a napkin is NOT a case). Our case features built-in Bluetooth tracking technology powered by Tile and includes a slide-out mirror just like our standard aligner case.
“A common reason that consumers’ teeth-straightening process is interrupted is simply because they have lost their aligners or retainers,” said Josh Chapman, Chief Global Brand Officer for SmileDirectClub. “Our new case will help all Club members avoid that interruption as well as the potential cost of having to pay for any replacements.”
In order to utilize this feature, you’ll need to download the Tile app (from the Apple App Store or Google Play) and create an account. From there, the app will walk you through step-by-step on how to get started.
Once activated, if the case is within a 100-foot distance of your mobile device, the case will make a sound to help you locate it. You can even set up a friend or parent to also receive alerts from the device.
Retainers aren’t the only thing consumers lose. SmileDirectClub’s Tile case can also be used in reverse to locate the owner’s mobile device using Tile. Click twice on the Tile logo on the back of the aligner case to initiate a tone to play on your mobile device, even if your phone is on silent. So, if you’re one of those people that loses things often, we’ve got you covered either way!
