There are 2 situations that might indicate the need to revise a treatment plan.
Before Tx Plan Approval
If the doctor is asking for revisions to the treatment before treatment is approved, they might make adjustments based on patient needs, profile, and doctor's preferences to achieve an optimal outcome and experience.
The doctor is advised to reject the treatment plan that is sent to them. They will then be prompted to propose revisions then.
Mid Treatment Revision
If the doctor is asking for revisions to the treatment plan mid-treatment because the patient is not tracking, this will occur because the discrepancy between the treatment plan and desired outcomes is widening.
In this case, the doctor is advised to
Take new impressions or scans
Send them to Orthosnap
And we'll send out the next batch, manufactured to adjust for the tracking issues experienced previously.
The doctor may identify this or it may be picked up in the weekly remote patient scans from Dental Monitoring. Or the patient might self-identify a tracking issue by explaining that the aligners aren't fitting like they used to.
As the patient gets to the end of their current batch, in the portal when ordering a new batch, you will be prompted if you're sending new impressions and any special instructions to indicate the tracking issue.
How to Describe the Revision
Describe any issues or problems you are experiencing with the treatment plan. Give as many details as possible.
A tooth that isn’t rotating as planned
An aligner is too tight
Be specific with requests, such as:
Attachments that do not appear to be doing their job
If you want overcorrection
If you desire to add an attachment
Also, please note any troubleshooting you have already tried for tracking issues and let us know at what step the patient went off track.
