What is Dental Monitoring?
Dental monitoring is a newly modernized and innovative way to treat and monitor patient dental treatment remotely through the incorporation of a smartphone application. It is mainly used to accurately assess images of Invisalign aligners to see if the patient’s teeth are straightening as planned.
What are the benefits of using Dental Monitoring?
The main benefit of dental monitoring is that it allows both the doctor and patient to avoid any unnecessary appointment. All Invisalign patients can use the dental monitoring application to upload their dental photos on a weekly basis.This dental monitoring app lets the patients know if they can change to the next aligner or not. It picks up poor wear issues and actually sends them an automatic message without asking us to approve.
Does using dental monitoring add more to the cost of treatment?
Short answer, NO! Dental Monitoring is included in your Invisalign treatment and the app is FREE!
When might surgical orthodontics be needed?
Surgical orthodontics may be used to treat adults with improper bites or other aesthetic concerns. Typically, jaw growth stops by age 16 in females and 18 in males. In order to receive orthognathic surgery, the jaw must be done growing.The need for surgical orthodontics occurs when the jaws do not line up correctly, and a proper bite cannot be achieved with orthodontic treatment alone. Invisalign in conjunction with orthognathic surgery will properly align the jaw and move the teeth into their proper position.
