Effortless Invisalign Progress Tracking with Dental Monitoring

Effortless Invisalign Progress Tracking with Dental Monitoring

In today’s digital age, technology is making remarkable strides in every aspect of our lives, including dentistry. An especially thrilling innovation in teeth straightening is the integration of dental monitoring with Invisalign treatment. This powerful technology brings you an easy and effective way to align your teeth, all from the comfort of your own home, reducing the need for frequent trips to the dental clinic. Let’s delve into the world of dental monitoring and how it’s revolutionising remote Invisalign treatment.

Understanding Invisalign Treatment for Teeth Straightening

Invisalign is a revolutionary aligner treatment that offers an alternative to traditional metal braces. Instead of brackets and wires, Invisalign utilises a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually move the teeth into their desired positions. These aligners are custom-made for each patient, making them comfortable to wear and virtually invisible.

Traditionally, Invisalign treatment required periodic in-person visits to the dentist to monitor progress, make adjustments, and receive new sets of aligners. However, dental monitoring has introduced a new dimension to Invisalign treatment, making it more convenient and accessible for patients.

What Is Dental Monitoring with Invisalign?

Dental monitoring is an innovative Artificial Intelligence (AI) powered technology that allows dentists to remotely track a patient’s progress during their aligner treatment, including Invisalign.

Dental Monitoring consists of 3 components: the Scan Box, the Dental Monitoring app, and your smart phone, allowing you to connect with your dentist virtually anywhere.

Instead of making visits to our clinic for adjustment appointments, you can conveniently send us photos of your teeth through the Dental Monitoring app every week, allowing you to continue with your daily routine without interruption! Dental Monitoring enables us to reduce the frequency of in-person visits while enhancing the quality of your treatment.

Here's how Dental Monitoring With Invisalign Works:

Intraoral Scanning: You use the handheld Scan Box scanner (and the Cheek Retractor tool) to capture accurate intraoral pictures for your dentist to view. You can then upload these scans on to the dental monitoring app.

Data Analysis: The dental monitoring app analyses the scans and provides valuable data to your dentist. This data includes the alignment of teeth, the fit of aligners, and any potential issues that may arise.

After your scan is completed, if no issues are detected, the AI system will guide you to move forward with your next aligner change.

In case any problems are identified, a notification will promptly appear on your dentist’s dashboard. This enables your dentist to provide you with timely advice on how to address the issue effectively.

For instance, if the system detects an aligner not fitting properly, your dentist might suggest wearing the aligners for a few additional days and using chewies to improve the fit in that specific area.

Remote Progress Monitoring: Based on the data received, your dentist can identify any issues early on and fine-tune treatment plans, rather than having to wait for your next appointment. This eliminates the need for frequent in-person visits, saving both time and resources.

In fact, weekly selfies help us to track your treatment even more closely than if you were coming in for regular check-ups every six to eight weeks.

Treatment Adjustments: If necessary, your dentist can make adjustments to the treatment plan remotely, such as ordering new aligners or modifying the current ones.

Benefits of Dental Monitoring With Invisalign Treatment

Convenience: Dental monitoring significantly reduces the number of in-person appointments required for Invisalign treatment. You can save time by eliminating the need for long commutes and waiting room visits.  This is especially beneficial if you are busy or if you live far from your dental clinic.

Ease of use:  The Dental Monitoring system has been designed with user-friendliness in mind. Accessible tutorial videos are available to demonstrate how to perform your own scans. With the innovative DM scan-box, patients can easily capture their scans using their smartphone’s camera.

The user interface is straightforward and intuitive, ensuring ease of use. The system includes alert features that keep you informed about important milestones in your aligner treatment journey, such as scan reminders, issue notifications, and even friendly messages from your dentist.

Improved Communication: Dental monitoring enhances communication between you and your dentist. You can easily share images and your concerns through the app, ensuring that your treatment stays on track.

Faster Results: With real-time monitoring and weekly images, your dentist can detect issues or delays in treatment early and make necessary adjustments promptly, potentially speeding up the overall treatment timeline.

Better Oral health: Dental monitoring encourages better oral hygiene practices. The DM scan can detect issues like plaque, calculus buildup, and soft tissue concerns.
