After an initial consultation, photos, x-rays, 3D scanning and measurements are recorded to determine the treatment plan, objectives and limitations. After a precise diagnosis, the dentist sent a orthodontic prescription to ALIGN TECHNOLOGY. At ALIGN, a 3D model of the teeth is made from the 3D scan, photos and x-rays. As prescribed by the doctor, a simulation of the teeth movement is executed to achieve the objectives. Following the simulation, the doctor receives a 3D simulation named ClinCheck. The dentist can then check and modify the proposed treatment.
The simulation completed, dentist and patient meet for the presentation of the case (simulation). After approval, a series of customized aligners are manufactured and delivered to the patient who will change for the next set every 2 weeks. From every 2 to 6 weeks, the dentist will have a physical control inside the month. Week after week, patient can see his teeth move, slowly but surely.
