You now have a treatment option for those patients who do not want a visible appliance. It is a way to add value to your practice whilst leaving you in control of the process at all times.
Accusmile® from FORESTADENT expands your range of treatments to include a new digital option. You alone decide when and how to use it. Optimise the process of using aligners and increase value creation in your surgery at the same time. Our Accusmile® department will be delighted to assist you with 3D printing of the models and if necessary producing the aligners too.
What makes Accusmile® stand out and different from many other aligner systems is its flexibility and versatility. There is no need to order the complete Accusmile® set for the case at the start of treatment. Instead you decide when it is time to order the next step in the treatment and the aligners required for it, i.e. you determine the number of aligners, and the timing of their production and each treatment step.
Moreover, you decide which of these steps are to be implemented by your practice laboratory and which by FORESTADENT. It is exactly this flexibility that gives you more control, creates value, and leaves your patients with a radiant and perfect smile.
Our Accusmile® team is always there to support you and happy to pass on valuable tips throughout the entire process of implementing an Accusmile® aligner treatment plan.
A course of treatment with Accusmile® starts in your practice with the dental impression, which is absolutely essential for digitisation and production of the aligners. You can either take a conventional impression and then send us the plaster models for digitisation, or use a desktop scanner to digitise the models yourself. You can also use an intraoral scanner to produce the impressions and digital models, and then send the open STL files directly to us. You can use our secure cloud or your 3Shape Communicate account to send the data.
The next step is processing the STL files with OnyxCeph3TM software, and then produce a treatment proposal based on your requirements and instructions. This can be revised and adapted until you give your final approval. We will make the treatment proposal available to you via a 3D viewer. There is no need for you to lease, purchase or install additional software. Neither is there any need for time consuming and costly certification courses.
Once we receive your approval, our Accusmile® lab will produce 3D print models for each of the planned treatment steps and send them to you. You keep the 3D print models and the final set up data in your practice archives. This allows speedy replacement of any damaged or lost aligners.
Each aligner is thermoformed on the 3D print model. We recommend using the FORESTADENT Track® V thermoforming unit for this. It is user-friendly, very reliable and allows you to produce the aligners in your lab or practice quickly and easily without the need for a compressor. You also have the option to make use of the services of our Accusmile® laboratory team, who will be happy to do this job for you.
Your patients receive the finished Accusmile® aligners from you. We recommend that they are worn every day for 20 to22 hours.
You have the choice whether you want all models and aligners at the same time or if you prefer to split the treatment into separate stages. Splitting the treatment into different stages gives you the ability to work flexibly, and to revise and refine the treatment plan at any time without incurring unnecessary printing costs for unused models. You simply send us a new scan of the current situation and we revise the treatment plan according to your instructions. Our prices include case refinement, i.e. you only pay for the models and aligners that were actually produced.
