In-house Clear Aligners Vs. Invisalign

How would an orthodontist benefit from this course?

With higher than ever marketing push by direct to consumer aligner companies like smile direct club as well as Invisalign, patients are asking for orthodontic treatment with clear aligners. Quick acquisition of digital impressions with intraoral scanners and myriad of 3D printing options allow an easy implementation of digital orthodontics.

The biggest challenge in implementing a digital workflow is identifying the right choices in order to be efficient and be able to scale the operation.

You can offer multiple combination or hybrid treatment options to your patients by having in an efficient house clear aligner system in your toolbox. Additionally, having an in house lab gives you a quick turnaround time and flexibility in treatment planning by combining aligners with traditional braces.

All of these help you to create exceptional patient experience at your clinic in the current competitive market.
