Tech tip: How to double-check your progress

Here's a tip from Dr. Rohini Vajaria of New York:

One tip I can offer is when the patient comes in the office for an appointment, it is helpful to do a careful clinical exam and compare the patient's progress to the ClearCorrect setups and confirm they match up.

For example, the patient's occlusion and alignment at the end of phase 1 should be compared to the phase 1 molds fabricated by ClearCorrect, and both should match each other.

This is a simple, intuitive piece of advice, but if they don't match up, it can help the clinician identify poor patient compliance, etc. and catch potential problems early.

Thanks, Dr. Vajaria.
