Orthodontic Arts strives to offer the most up-to-date technology and we pride ourselves by putting systems in place to allow for seamless appointments. Our Dental Monitoring service is a safe and effective way to check-in on patients, especially during the current environment with COVID-19. This monitoring service allows patients to use their smartphone to do quick scans for their aligners, which in return Dr. Birdwell and Dr. Wilson have the opportunity to monitor treatment progress.
So, what exactly is a “Dental Monitoring Service”?!
Every patient’s biological response to treatment is different. A Dental Monitoring service is a tool to help our office predict a better clinical outcome. These at-home scans create efficiency and peace of mind. One of the things that can be frustrating with aligner treatment is making sure the fit of the aligner is correct and comfortable. A poorly fitting aligner can lead to prolonged treatment times and the need for additional aligners. Luckily with our Dental Monitoring, the scan communicates this information to our doctors and we can address issues in a timely manner. We can also message with the patient to let them know when they can move to the next aligner tray. This will help us make sure patients have as few in-office visits as possible while making sure that they’re on track! We understand that orthodontic treatment is a time commitment. Luckily with this technology our patients can do their scan in less than five minutes, make their treatment as efficient as possible and keep their office visits to a minimum. It’s a win-win for everyone! We’re excited to offer this service at zero cost to our patients. If you’re a current patient that’s interested in this service please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Our job is to answer your questions and help you along the way to achieve the smile of your dreams.
