Scott Smith Orthodontics :: Dental monitoring

Snap your way to straight teeth

Dental monitoring

Are you trying to work out how to fit orthodontic treatment into your already busy lifestyle?

If you’re currently juggling work commitments, travel, family routines and DIY, chances are there’s very little time left in your diary for a visit to the orthodontist.

But at Scott Smith Orthodontics, although we love seeing our patients smile, we also have a way that you can straighten your teeth without needing to make appointments with us.

It’s a smart phone app called dental monitoring.

What is dental monitoring?

Dental monitoring is the latest in orthodontic technology which is making it easier for patients to enjoy the benefits Invisalign and other orthodontic treatment. The software connects to an app on your smart phone which enables you to take photos of your teeth to send to us at the clinic. We can monitor the movement of your teeth simply by looking at these photos and lining them up with your treatment plan. If your teeth are moving as they should be, you don’t need to come in and see us!

A smart way to smile

Dental monitoring is a smart way (no pun intended, well maybe) to achieve that beautiful smile you’ve always hoped for. And not only does the dental monitoring software ensure precise results from your treatment, it also means you only have to visit us about four times during your 18-month treatment plan (usually we’d require you to book an appointment every six weeks).

Getting started

So, the next important question…. how do you get started? First things first, book a consultation with us. We still need to see you to kick start your treatment and assess what treatment you could most benefit from. You’ll then need to return for a fitting appointment, which is when we’ll fit you with your appliance. Once that’s complete, follow the three steps below, and you’re well on your way to straight teeth and a beautiful smile:

  • Step 1: Download the Dental Monitoring app to your phone.
  • Step 2: Take photos of your teeth as per the Dental Monitoring app instructions.
  • Step 3: Email the photos to your orthodontist for assessment.
