Clear aligner therapy has become increasingly popular over the past decade. The convenience and aesthetics of aligners cannot be matched by traditional metal braces. More recently, there has been an increase in clear aligner brands that are competing against one another and for dentists’ attention.
When choosing a clear aligner brand to offer your patients, it can be tempting to go with a brand that has been around for a long time. However, that doesn’t make them the best option available. Dentists must do extensive research to determine which clear aligner brand offers their patients the most effective and affordable results.
We believe Orthosnap does just that and more. Here are five reasons to offer Orthosnap to your patients over other clear aligner brands:
1. We don’t use 3D printing.
3D printed and CAD-based systems create inaccuracies in clear aligners that create striations on the aligners and undermine their performance. So, although they are called “clear” aligners, they end up not being so clear after all. Additionally, they don’t work as well or as quickly as they could.
Orthosnap uses a dynamic physical model of the patient’s teeth. This process focuses on moving each tooth individually and enables incremental movement. The creation of the aligner, beginning with a PVS record impression, produces a more precise fit and superior accuracy and movement control.
2. Orthosnap is affordable and competitive in pricing.
The proprietary manufacturing process also reduces cost by 30 percent, so patients are more compelled toward treatment. Our price point lands somewhere between direct-to-customer aligner companies and the most popular in-office aligner brands. So, patients have the option of using aligners under the guidance of a dental professional without the high price tag.
Other clear aligner brands require patients to pay upfront fees and offer tiered pricing. We offer a flexible “pay-as-you-go” model that encourages patient compliance.
For dentists, this means more patients, increased productivity, and an entirely new revenue stream.
3. Orthosnap treats a wider range of scenarios than other clear aligner systems.
Because our Dynamic Physical Model System™ (DPM) enables individual tooth movement, we are able to treat more complex orthodontic cases than our competitors, usually without requiring extractions or IPR.
Orthosnap aligners can address mild, moderate, and complex cases of malocclusion, such as:
- Midline adjustment
- Open bite
Compared to other clear aligner brands, our aligners provide full-body movement which reduces the need for excessive IPRs, attachments, and extractions.
4. It’s easy to integrate Orthosnap into your dental practice.
Unlike other clear aligner brands, Orthosnap doesn’t require doctors to complete training (although training is offered). Instead, we’ve streamlined our doctor’s portal so that it is easy to use and understand. Then, our team handles the creation of the treatment plan, with the doctor’s help, of course!
The key to having a successful experience with Orthosnap aligners is to take good clinical photographs and proper impressions and obtaining patient compliance. When you become an Orthosnap partner, you’ll have access to our online doctor portal, marketing support, custom packaging, and 24/7 customer service.
