Straighten your teeth at home with Dental Monitoring
Life – it’s busy, but it should never be too busy to smile. Do you have a smile you like to show off, or have you been considering orthodontic treatment and trying to fit it into your busy schedule?
At Anglia Orthodontics, we’ve found a solution. We now offer a way you can enjoy the benefits, and more importantly the results, of orthodontic treatment without needing to find time in your diary for regular visits to our clinic.
It’s called dental monitoring and it means you can have orthodontic treatment from wherever you are.
What is dental monitoring?
Dental monitoring is exciting new technology that enables our specialist orthodontist, Dr Francis Scriven, to monitor your treatment progress remotely. Instead of coming into our clinic, we can keep an eye on the movement of your teeth on a weekly basis. This means less visits to our practice, which is one less thing you have to fit in to your busy schedule, but you still have the peace of mind that we are monitoring your teeth.
How does dental monitoring work?
If you are going ahead with orthodontic treatment, you’ll need to come in for an orthodontic assessment. We need to know how severe your orthodontic treatment needs are and what type of appliance you could benefit from.
If you choose to proceed with Invisalign, the system of virtually invisible aligners that straighten teeth, we’ll provide you with your first set of aligners and set you up with dental monitoring.
Dental monitoring is an app that sits on your smartphone. You’ll be required to regularly upload images of your teeth via the app which we can see. We’ll assess the images you take to make sure your teeth are moving in line with your treatment plan. This incredible tracking system means your treatment is shaped by your own biology and compliance rather than a standard time frame. It also has the potential to speed up treatment.

Hear from our happy patients
l was referred to Anglia Orthodontics with a pronounced overbite. The opinion of the treatment offered - Invisalign - was honest, due to the movement of my teeth Dr Scriven warned that this treatment may not work. However, I followed advice and wore the aligners and elastic bands as recommended and 17 months later I have straight teeth. I am now finishing the treatment with cleaning and whitening and people have noticed a positive change. What also helped was the Dental Monitoring App which meant that you can have a weekly check without having to make time for more appointments, I have scanned from bathrooms in Austria and Edinburgh! Staff at Anglia Orthodontics have been nothing but friendly, helpful and professional
