With ClearCorrect, you can submit a case for free and see exactly how many steps are planned in the 3D treatment setup. The information in the treatment setup can help you decide which treatment option you prefer to use for your patient. You can choose from three treatment options:
With each of these options you can choose based on the number of aligners you feel will be best for the treatment.
If you're trying to optimize your overall cost over the entire treatment period, you'll need to weigh your options. With Flex, additional aligners (such as revisions, replacements, and retainers) are priced at the same rate as aligners for new cases. You'll also need a new treatment setup for any revisions. This can vary a lot from clinician to clinician and from patient to patient.
Some people don't need anything but what's shown in the initial setup; others start over almost from scratch multiple times. Once these additional costs are factored in, Unlimited can end up being the more affordable option over time for many cases.
The ONE treatment option, gives you up to 24 sets of aligners and includes up to one year of treatment, one set of retainers, and one revision.
There are no strict guidelines, but here are some rules of thumb for the types of treatment that might be best suited for each treatment option:
If you want the most affordable upfront cost, that's going to be Flex for all but the longest dual-arch cases. Flex is also a good option if you and your patient are prepared to deal with any additional costs that may come up during treatment.
