We can do a lot with our smart phones these days and that extends to straightening our teeth. At Peel Orthodontics, we have embraced dental monitoring – the latest in orthodontic technology, which enables us to straighten your teeth via your smartphone.
What is dental monitoring?
Dental monitoring is smart phone compatible technology which allows you to take a photo of your teeth during orthodontic treatment, upload it to the dental monitoring app, and have our specialist orthodontists assess the position of your teeth against your orthodontic treatment plan to monitor how your teeth are moving.
This means you don’t have to come in for regular check-ups – that can all be done online!
How does dental monitoring work?
Dental monitoring works in conjunction with Invisalign aligners. At the start of treatment, we take 3D images of your teeth and put together a digital treatment plan for you. This plan shows us – and you – what your teeth will look like at the end of treatment.
We use the photos you take via the dental monitoring app throughout treatment to compare your teeth’s current position with where your teeth should be at that stage of treatment, according to your treatment plan.
If your teeth aren’t moving quite as they should be, we can adapt your aligners; if they are, you can carry on as you are with no need to come in for an appointment.
Dental monitoring is just one of the orthodontic technologies we use here at Peel Orthodontics for the benefit of our patients. We are fortunate to work in an exciting industry where new practices and techniques are being tried, tested and implemented all the time.
As part of our commitment to you, we keep up-to-date on the latest developments within our industry, such as dental monitoring.
