What if you could visit the dentist without leaving the comfort of your home? With technological advancements and help from tools like AI powering the apps stored in our phones, you can now keep up with your dentist and on top of your oral health by simply tapping on your phone's screen. Maybe it sounds a bit like science fiction, but it's a real app called DentalMonitoring.

How Does Dental Monitoring Work?

During a patient's treatment plan, the DentalMonitoring app allows the patient to take photos of their teeth that the app will securely send to our dentist here at Oasis Smiles Dental. Instead of taking a weekly trip, the app requires a weekly photo instead! We instruct our patients on properly taking the images for review and send two more tools called the DM ScanBox and DM Cheek Retractors to aid in the process.

How Can I Benefit From Dental Monitoring?

  • Less frequent trips to the dentist
  • Professional oversight during your treatment plan
  • Flexibility to upload images from home or mostly anywhere else!
  • Using the app saves fuel, time, and money usually spent on commuting
  • Provides an open line of communication between you and the dentists for any updates, questions, and concerns

When Do I Need Dental Monitoring?

When our patients in Tamworth and surrounding areas require teeth-straightening treatments, we rely on a variety of clear aligners to avoid long-term metal brackets. These include Invisalign, ClearCorrect, and MTM aligners. These clear aligners used in conjunction with the DentalMonitoring app allow us to keep an eye on your teeth weekly during the alignment process.
