World first as new smartphone app offers straighter teeth

According to recent stats a whopping 77% of us have crooked teeth and while most of us want to change that*, over a third of us Brits are afraid of the dentist’s chair**.

A new smartphone app launching today is about to change all that – and it’s already been named winner of Best Innovator at the Future of Healthcare 2018.

 Straight Teeth Direct™ is taking the growing cosmetic dental industry by storm, reshaping everything we know about professional orthodontics, via your smartphone, with the world’s first teeth straightening mobile app (iOS & Android).

Up until now, the app has been functional via the web portal. But as of today, this proprietary teledentistry app and platform, built uniquely by Straight Teeth Direct™ launches on mobile.

It uniquely integrates at home diagnostics, 3D scanning, computer-aided design, and 3D printing to create personalised medical devices that enable remote treatment which is basically telemedicine 2.0. All of this, specifically for remote diagnosis and remote treatment

The brainchild of co-founders Dr Aalok Y Shukla, CEO and Lucie Marchelot Shukla, Managing Director, Straight Teeth Direct™is promising straight teeth from the comfort of your couch.

Dr Shukla explains:

“We see care in traditional clinics as an intermittent model, but the future is continuous monitoring. By uploading photos to the app, you can track progress in a more systematic way and stay on top of progress.”

The innovator health technology company is a next-generation tooth straightening service which digitises the whole dentist experience via the app and delivers premium aligners directly to your door. Straight Teeth Direct™ connects customers to leading orthodontists for professional teeth straightening, to ensure they have round-the-clock support and supervision as they achieve their ideal smile at home.

It works by using the latest mobile technology – where users upload five selfies taken from different angles to the app for an initial free e-consultation. Within 24 hours, an experienced dentist will evaluate if you’re suitable for treatment.

If you are interested in opening the door to a better smile and find out if you’re eligible, download the app now via the App Store  for iPhone or Google Play for Android devices.
