Clinical oversight is essential in orthodontic treatment to ensure its success and safety. However, there are challenges in achieving optimal oversight, including the fact that a significant portion of treatment occurs outside of the clinician’s office. Additionally, the duration of orthodontic treatment can be lengthy, lasting an average of 20 months and involving 18 office visits.
Clear aligner therapy has reduced the number of office visits needed, but it comes with a trade-off in terms of clinical oversight. Studies have shown that oral appliances, including removable clear aligners, can affect oral chemistry and increase the risk of issues like caries and periodontal disease. Despite these known complications, patients are often allowed to go for extended periods without being seen by their doctor.
In light of these challenges, a new clear aligner system called CandidPro has emerged as a potential solution. Developed by an orthodontist, CandidPro offers increased clinical oversight compared to traditional clear aligners. This system allows clinicians to closely monitor and assess patients’ oral health throughout the treatment process.
By incorporating the CandidPro system into their practice, clinicians can address the issue of limited oversight during clear aligner therapy. This innovative solution enables more frequent and thorough assessments, reducing the risks associated with compliance and hygiene. With improved clinical oversight, clinicians can ensure better treatment outcomes and the overall health of their patients’ oral cavity.
Clinical oversight is a crucial aspect of orthodontic treatment, and the introduction of the CandidPro system provides a promising solution to the challenges faced in this area. With this system, clinicians can more effectively monitor and assess patients’ oral health throughout the treatment process, reducing the risks associated with clear aligner therapy. By ensuring better treatment outcomes and oral health, the CandidPro system is poised to make a positive impact on orthodontic care.
