At Colchester Orthodontic Centre we are excited to use the latest orthodontic technology called Dental Monitoring. Dental Monitoring transforms your smartphone into a remote scanning device which enables us to track your treatment progress remotely. This software has been designed to make having orthodontic treatment easier, with fewer check-up appointments, an easy to use app and communication with our team.You keep your treatment on track with fewer appointments which makes orthodontic treatment easier to fit into a busy lifestyle.Once you have downloaded the Dental Monitoring app to your smartphone you will be guided through the easy process of taking photos of your teeth (DM scans) to capture your treatment progress. You will have access to progress reports, receive our messages and instructions, for example when to change your aligners, making sure treatment is truly customised and made just for you.
So how does it work?
The Dental Monitoring app is synced with software in our practice and currently only available to Invisalign patients. Once you have been fitted with your aligners, we will ask you to take scans at regular intervals via your smartphone and send these to us via the app.We compare the images you send us with your treatment plan to track your progress and ensure your teeth are moving into their desired position. If your teeth are moving as they should then there’s no need to come into the practice for a check-up, but you still have peace of mind that your treatment is being monitored.Click here to view the Dental Monitoring Tutorial

Louise - Patient
“I skipped on having braces as a child and took the plunge when I was 28 as this was holding me back with my confidence. At first, I wondered what people would think of a grown man with braces, but I am pleased to say this had no impact at all and I never really noticed that I had them. I thoroughly recommend Colchester Orthodontic Centre to my friends, family and anybody else thinking about having treatment.”
Warren - Patient
“After over 2 years of impeccable TLC from Colchester Orthodontic Centre my daughter is now able to show off the smile she has always deserved! Mr Davies was able to advise us with his wealth of experience as to what was needed, and the result is proof that they clearly know how to look after their client’s needs and ensure the best result at the end of the journey!”

“My Invisalign experience with Colchester Orthodontic Centre was fab. I was supported the whole way through and given many options and I am now really happy with my teeth. The Invisalign aligners are very comfortable and discreet. I would definitely recommend Invisalign treatment at Colchester Orthodontic Centre.”
Hollie - Patient
“You can make the most of your teeth at any age. Sometimes mature years can make you feel awkward attending the orthodontist, although I have been encouraged and treated with care and attention at every appointment. I try to maintain my teeth as best I can and I have received the very best care you could wish for. I started out feeling reluctant to smile. I am now very happy to smile at any occasion and feel grateful to the wonderful team at Colchester Orthodontic Centre, the whole team treat you with professional care and kindness.”
