Using Dental Monitoring – When to Change Your Aligners

Apr 18, 2024

Hi, I’m Dr. Mike Anderson. And one of the important things that you need to know when you’re wearing clear aligners is when you have to change it. I need to be able to see how your clear aligners are fitting, and I can get images like this when you take a scan of your teeth or video of your teeth with your remote monitoring.

Dental Monitoring

To take a video of your teeth, you simply have to have your aligners in. And then you need a scan box, which looks like this, your phone, and it has to be a smartphone, goes into the scan box. You then put your lip retractor in, and then the scan box attaches to the lip retractor, and you can take the video.

Once you’ve taken the video, I’ll get images like this of your Invisalign, and I’ll be able to assess how it’s fitting. If it’s all fitting well, you’ll get a message back the same day saying, great, your aligners are fitting well, you can move onto the next set. And that’s how easy the process is.
