Remote Orthodontic Monitoring

April 23, 2021

What if there was an easy way to skip orthodontic appointments during treatment? With Remote Orthodontic Monitoring, it is possible! Carvalho & Roth Orthodontics uses Dental Monitoring to check on patients between appointments. This reliable app reduces the time patients spend at the office and helps orthodontists manage treatments effectively.

What is Remote Orthodontic Monitoring?

In short, remote orthodontic monitoring is like getting a weekly house call from your doctor. Although it is a relatively new practice in the US, dental monitoring has been in widespread use around the world since 2017. After successful trials of teledentistry conducted in 2014, the current model utilizes a smartphone application to connect doctors and patients.

The platform allows your orthodontist to monitor your progress remotely using images sent from your smartphone. The Dental Monitoring Scanbox and app work together to provide your doctor with images. Patients can submit images from anywhere with standard cellular service.

For your doctor, it means more screen time and less time between patients. But it also carries many other benefits. The doctor can review and advise several patients in the time allocated for one in-person appointment. For office staff, it means less time spent cleaning between appointments. For patients, it reduces commuting time, waiting room time, and increases the doctor-patient interaction.

If security is a concern, you can rest easy. The platform is HIPAA and GDPR compliant. Your information is only accessible by you and your doctor. The app is available for Apple and Android devices so that you can download it in the applicable format.

How Will It Help Your Treatment?

The biggest advantage is that using the DM app and DM Scanbox will cut down the number of in-person appointments you will need. Once you download the app you will be ready to begin remote orthodontic monitoring. Your doctor can specify the interval for submitting images and the app will remind you when it is time. The entire process only takes a few minutes from start to finish.

When you submit your scans, your doctor has instant access and is notified that scans are waiting. The doctor can review the scans and send you feedback or instructions via the secure in-app messaging system. This means you don’t have to visit the office between adjustments, which saves you and the doctor time! Dental Monitoring is available with traditional braces, Clear Braces, Invisalign, and other orthodontic appliances.

The app also includes a time-lapse that shows how your teeth are moving. This allows instant monitoring of your progress and goal tracking. This updates automatically whenever you submit new scans.  This powerful AI software will help you and your orthodontist stay on top of your progress.
