Are anchors required to move teeth properly with clear braces? Smile Direct Club doesn't use them.

When you need anchors
For inpatient invisible aligner treatment, your orthodontist or dentist may prescribe anchors (or buttons or attachments as they're sometimes called) to reduce the duration of treatment or to achieve certain movements on a case-by-case basis. SmileDirectClub doesn't require these. If the prescribing doctor on your case determined you needed them to achieve results, they would refer you for in-office treatment rather than SmileDirectClub's remote model.
