Quality aligners and fantastic support


  Posted by: Dental Design      10th May 2020

As more patients consider orthodontic treatment, there is greater opportunity for practitioners to expand the services they offer into this field. With the right training and support, GDPs can meet the raising demand for simple orthodontics and enjoy an increased patient-base as a result.

ClearCorrect from the Straumann Group is designed to ensure highly accurate and efficient treatment. The comprehensive digital workflow includes a choice of high-performance intraoral scanners, which capture all the data needed for ClearCorrect to produce a 3D set up for the clinician to approve and implement. This can be reviewed at each stage of treatment to encourage the ideal clinical outcome every time. The patient experience is further enhanced with DenToGo – the cutting-edge remote treatment monitoring app that uses artificial intelligence to reduce the number of appointments for optimal convenience. 

Sami Butt, Principal of S3 Dental in Haywards Heath, has been using ClearCorrect aligners from the Straumann Group since they reached the UK market about two years ago.

“A big incentive to use this system initially was the free video simulation,” he says. “Following design of the smile using the comprehensive design software, I could show patients the predicted treatment outcome straight away. The online portal also makes it easy for me to send all the relevant information for fabrication of the aligners, which are returned quickly – especially now I use a digital workflow.

“The aligners themselves are strong and well-made. They cover about 1mm of gum, which is good because it allows for greater tooth movement and helps the patient remove the appliance – they are harder to remove when sculpted around the gingival margin.

“In fact, patient feedback has been great. I’ve achieved some fantastic results and my patients are very happy. One of the greatest benefits is that I’ve been able to treat patients who have otherwise been advised that they need tooth extractions for orthodontic treatment. I have been able to give patients who have been turned away for removable aligners the treatment they desired.”

Dr Butt has been just as impressed with the service he received from the Straumann Group as he has with the effectiveness of the appliances. He continues:

“The support from the Straumann Group has been fantastic. The team answer any questions quickly and provide good feedback. Their support combined with the quality is the reason I use ClearCorrect over other systems.

“Having the backing of the Straumann Group is absolutely a benefit. It gives me more confidence and is why I recommend the system so much. I believe in seeking value rather than simply considering cost. The value that the Straumann Group representatives and brand bring to this product, cannot be ignored. Other aligner reps are there to sell you products, Straumann Group reps are there to support you with products.

“I have also been privileged to see some of the products and features coming in the future – I’m excited about the future of this system and am therefore very happy to continue recommending it to colleagues.”
