Dental Monitoring is the smartphone app that is revolutionising the world of orthodontics. Now you can complete Invisalign® treatment from anywhere without visiting us at our practice - it’s as easy as taking a selfie!
How does Dental Monitoring work?
During your first consultation at Carter and Galante Orthodontics, we will use our 3D iTero Scanner to create a digital model of your unique smile. Then, during Invisalign® treatment, we will ask you to send us regular photos of your smile using the Dental Monitoring app. We can use the digital model we created at your consultation to compare your progress against your projected treatment programme to make sure everything is going according to plan.
Having the Dental Monitoring app means you can continue your Invisalign® treatment from anywhere - as long as you have wifi access! You won’t need to come to our practice for regular appointments or adjustments, and, even though we will see you less, you will have constant access to our expertise through the app.
Track your Invisalign® treatment on the go
It’s extremely simple to get started with Dental Monitoring. After you come in for your initial consultation and sign up for Invisalign® treatment, we can get you set up with this incredible app.
First, download the Dental Monitoring app to your iOS or Android smartphone.
Next, follow the instructions in the app to take regular selfies of your smile.
Then, we will use the Dental Monitoring software at our practice to view the photos you sent us. We will ensure that your progress matches up with your treatment programme.
Best yet, if your treatment is proceeding according to plan, we won’t need to schedule an appointment to see you. You can continue your Invisalign® treatment from home, work or even from your beach vacation!
What are the benefits of Dental Monitoring?
Invisalign® treatment is more convenient and efficient than ever with Dental Monitoring. This app allows for:
Invisalign Comprehensive: for major orthodontic treatment which requires treatment of between 6 and 15 months.
Invisalign Lite: for minor orthodontic problems affecting the six front teeth, Invisalign Express can achieve results within six months.
Invisalign Express: for minor orthodontic problems affecting the six front teeth, Invisalign Express can achieve results within three months.
Invisalign First: for children who require preparatory orthodontic treatment, Invisalign First aligners can prepare the teeth and jaws for treatment and help to reduce the extent of orthodontic work required.
Fewer appointments - We can monitor your treatment remotely through the app, so we’ll only need to see you at our practice if your Specialist Orthodontist decides to adjust your treatment plan.
Increased efficiency - Because we’ll get frequent photos from you, we will be able to adjust your treatment programme as needed to speed up your treatment time and ensure the best outcome for your smile.
Constant support - With the Dental Monitoring app, our team is always only a click away. You can contact us whenever you have questions, and we will send you regular progress reports to keep you updated on your treatment.
Ultimate flexibility - Track your progress anytime and anywhere so treatment can work around your busy schedule.
