You’ll want to start by confirming the software has accurately related the models and bite registration. Put the timeline of the treatment setup in the starting position and tilt the model up to check for gaps between the upper and lower incisors—comparing this view to the patient’s photographs and records often indicates an improper bite registration for the model.
From the front, check the midline relationship. Use the right and left views to verify the overjet, overbite, canine, and molar relationships. Use the occlusal views to confirm that the impressions or intraoral scans accurately captured the shape of the teeth.
If you’re satisfied with the starting model, carefully review the subsequent steps to verify that the planned tooth movements are safe and effective. Verify that any recommended IPR and engagers are sufficient to achieve your goals.
Bear in mind that these models really just represent the shape of the aligners that you will be given—no one can guarantee what the teeth will do in real life. ClearCorrect’s technicians will attempt to follow your instructions as closely as possible. As the prescribing doctor, you are ultimately responsible for your patient’s orthodontic care.
When you’re done reviewing the setup, click EVALUATE to return to the case page.
When you evaluate a treatment setup, you have four options:
- Approve the setup and start the case
- Decline the setup and ask for changes
- Decline the setup and submit new impressions or scans
- Decline the setup and cancel the case
If everything looks good, click Approve. That's when you'll be presented with a choice between Flex or Unlimited pricing options:
Any case can be treated as Flex or Unlimited, regardless of duration. You'll see the exact duration and cost of both options. If you're not sure which one to choose, check out this article for some points to consider.
