Dental Monitoring for smart results
These days, our smartphone comes everywhere with us. Whether at work or play, at school or in the car, our phone is never very far away. We use it to chat, check emails, read the news and now, we can even use it to keep your treatment on track!
Thanks to the Dental Monitoring app, you can now use your smartphone to benefit your Invisalign treatment. This latest technology is enhancing the experience of our patients.
What is Dental Monitoring?
Dental Monitoring is an orthodontic software which allows you to have virtual appointments with Dr Smith through your smartphone (either IOS or Android). It means we can keep in regular communication with you, and track the progress of your Invisalign treatment, without requiring you to come into the clinic for a check-up.
How does Dental Monitoring work?
To set Dental Monitoring up, we first need to assess your teeth and mouth to determine your orthodontic treatment needs. Once we’ve prepared a tailored Invisalign treatment plan for you, and you’ve committed to treatment, we’ll fit your Invisalign aligners and connect you with the Dental Monitoring app.
After you leave our clinic wearing your new Invisalign clear aligners, we won’t need to see you again for a check-up until much later in your treatment. That doesn’t mean we leave you on your own either. In fact, we’ll be monitoring your teeth carefully. Here’s why:
Every 5-7 days you’ll take a selfie of your smile using the Dental Monitoring app on your smartphone. Once you’ve taken your selfie (we will give you all the instructions to do this), you’ll upload it to us via the app. When the picture comes through to us at the clinic, we’ll assess it against your treatment plan. If your teeth are tracking as they should be, you will be asked to move on to your next aligner. You will need to see us occasionally and of course we are just a phone call away if you have any questions or concerns but rest assured we are keeping a close eye on your Invisalign progress!
Keeping your treatment on track
Dental Monitoring has made it much easier for patients to keep their Invisalign treatment on schedule. We are monitoring weekly to assess how teeth are responding to treatment. The high definition dental images that are captured via the Dental Monitoring app help Dr Smith to evaluate the progress of your treatment.
Benefits of Dental Monitoring
We believe the greatest benefit of Dental Monitoring is that it you can fit your orthodontic treatment into your busy lifestyle. We know how quickly our patients’ schedules can fill up with work commitments, holidays, school trips, or sports – the last thing they want is to come in for an orthodontic check-up.
Dental Monitoring allows us to keep on top of your treatment progress without requiring you to drop everything for an appointment. You can continue treatment from anywhere (as long as you have a smartphone and a Wi-Fi connection)!
