Reviewing and Approving Treatment Setup
Active Aligners role is to help you create the Active Aligner Treatment Plan and Smile Summary you want for your patient. We offer recommendations and have set clear treatment protocols, however the end result is up to you. This is why we recommend you make any necessary changes to the treatment plan for each of your patients to ensure their optimal outcome.
Lets look at a brief Workflow:
- A candidacy determination for your patient will be sent to you within 48 hours of submission. This will include a yes / no candidacy assessment, comments and reasons (free of charge). It is essential that you submit all the necessary patient records – quality control photos, 3D scan or impression, and your notes for the desired outcome for your patient. This can be done on the platform or via your preferred method of communication.
- A treatment plan (setup) is then done once you request a design on the patient’s case (after reviewing the notes on candidacy determination above). On clicking deign (or requesting a design), it usually takes 72 hours to create. Once it’s ready, you’ll receive an email to let you know, or you will be able to view it on the platform.
- After treatment is completed and the case is closed, the setup will be archived for a period of up to 7 years.
A treatment setup contains 3D rendering for each stage of the treatment, representing the tooth movements as well as a PDF Smile Summary. The treatment setup will show you how stages are planned and their intended outcomes.
Once you click “approve” on the setup, models will be manufactured and used to make your patient’s Active Aligners.
If you would like additional changes, you may (on the platform) request a “redesign” with your comments for changes.
Please remember – Active Aligners are a device manufacturer for Active Aligners. Treatment decisions and case diagnosis are entirely the responsibility of the prescribing doctor.
