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. During the entire process, a competent team of orthodontists and orthodontic technicians is at your disposal.
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.
You register once and of course free of charge in our online portal under www.forestadent-portal.com. There you can then place your Accusmile orders, upload and download data, review the treatment proposals for approval and release the model prints. Additionally you can communicate directly with us.
An Accusmile® treatment 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 digitize the models yourself. You can also use an intraoral scanner to create digital models, and then upload the stl-files directly in our portal.
In the next step we are processing the data in OnyxCeph3TM 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 in our online portal. 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 you give us the approval you can decide if you want to print the models yourself or if we shall print and send them to you. With either option 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 printed model. We recommend using the FORESTADENT Track® V or Track® P thermoforming unit for this. They are user-friendly, very reliable and allow you to produce the aligners in your lab or practice quickly and easily without the need for an external 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 to 22 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. Should the treatment not progress as planned, e.g. due to a lack of patient compliance, you can start a refinement order in the portal and upload a new scan (or send us a new plaster model) which we then use for an adjusted treatment proposal.
