How Dental Monitoring Can Transform Your Treatment Journey

How Dental Monitoring Can Transform Your Treatment Journey

There has never been a more convenient time to improve your smile. Treatments such as teeth straightening can now be carried out without unnecessary trips to your dental practice as dental monitoring tools put you, the patient, in control of your treatment journey and allow you to communicate with us digitally to make sure that everything is on track towards your new, improved smile.

If you are thinking about having braces, read on to find out how dental monitoring can transform your treatment journey.

How Does Dental Monitoring Work?

Monitoring apps allow dental professionals to remotely monitor the progress of orthodontic treatments, track potential issues, set clinical goals, and ensure patients are sticking to treatment best practices. 

The dental monitoring app, in conjunction with the ScanBox Pro, enables you to securely communicate with our dental practice, send photos of your teeth for evaluation, and receive specific notifications and advice from our dental team to keep your treatment on track, so you can ultimately enjoy the results you are hoping for.

How Can it Improve Your Treatment Journey?

Remote monitoring, using the Dental Monitoring app plus ScanBox Pro, can be beneficial to you if you are undergoing teeth straightening treatment such as Invisalign aligners. Here are 5 of the main ways it can improve your treatment journey:

  1. Remote monitoring: you can upload digital images of your teeth or Invisalign aligners through the app, allowing our dental team to monitor your progress remotely without the need for frequent in-person visits.
  2. Convenience: the monitoring app reduces the need for unnecessary appointments, providing you with more flexibility and convenience in managing your treatment progress and ensuring you don’t have to take time out of your busy schedule to attend appointments that aren’t strictly necessary.
  3. Personalised treatment: the app compiles treatment data and allows our dental team to personalise your treatment plans based on individual progress, ensuring a tailored approach to teeth straightening that delivers the best results for you.
  4. Timely adjustments: through weekly progress scans, we can spot issues early, make necessary adjustments promptly, and prevent delays in treatment, ultimately leading to faster and more effective results.
  5. Peace of mind: you will receive real-time insights into your treatment progress, ensuring that your aligners fit properly and that they are on track with your treatment plan, providing reassurance and peace of mind throughout the process.

Why We Love Dental Monitoring

It isn’t just our patients that can benefit from monitoring the progress of their treatment. This innovative collaborative technology is also much loved by our dental team and here is why: 

  • Optimised chair time: dental monitoring allows for virtual appointments and remote monitoring, optimising chair time by reducing the need for unnecessary in-person visits and ensuring that the time we spend with you in our practice is of the highest quality and benefit to you.
  • Enhanced patient engagement: by utilising monitoring apps, we can engage you more fully in your treatment process. The technology allows for continuous review of aligner cases without additional appointments, increasing your involvement in the process which leads to better treatment outcomes and patient satisfaction. 
  • Improved treatment efficiency: digital monitoring enables us to closely track the progress of each case, ensuring treatments are effective and risks are minimised or eliminated. By remotely monitoring your progress and intervening promptly when needed, we can achieve better treatment outcomes, implement cost-effective treatments, and save time for both our patients and ourselves.
  • Time-saving automation: with tools such as the dental monitoring app, we can automate non-clinical steps, such as sending instructions automatically when issues arise or communicating directly with you through the app. This automation streamlines the treatment process, reduces unnecessary appointments, and allows us to focus on critical clinical decisions rather than administrative tasks, ultimately saving valuable time for all of us.

How to Use the Dental Monitoring App

If you are having orthodontic treatment and have been advised to use the monitoring app, you’ll be given all the advice you need at your appointment, but here is a quick recap:

  • Receive instructions from your dentist on using the ScanBoxpro and DM app during an in-person appointment.
  • Capture photos of your smile using the ScanBoxpro as advised by your dentist and submit them through the app.
  • We will review the photos remotely to track your treatment progress, providing guidance and feedback through the app.
  • Monitor your treatment progress over time with photo time-lapse technology and visualise how your teeth are aligning towards your treatment goal. 

If you like the idea of being able to monitor your progress from the comfort of your own home, or wherever you are, don’t forget to ask about dental monitoring when you come in for your initial treatment consultation or next progress appointment.
