Benefits of Adopting Aligners in Your Orthodontic Clinic
Aligners have become a mainstay of most, if not all, modern dental clinics. Not only do clear aligners allow the doctors to diversify the product offering and open a new revenue stream, but they are also a very strong referral tool and involve significantly less chair time than traditional braces.
Many orthodontists today however still practice metal braces, leaving significant value on the table. If implemented correctly, a proper aligner strategy can have a profound impact on a clinic's profitability and growth.
Less Chair Time
Aligner treatments require significantly less chair time. Placing brackets can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes and requires a lot of tightening which can be unpleasant for the patient. Aligners on the other hand are quite simple and the initial fitting session will not take the doctor more than 5 to 10 minutes on average. Reduced chair time with each monthly visit means a doctor can see more patients at the same time.
Clinics that have more aggressively adopted aligners in their practice have gained the confidence to tackle more challenging aligner cases and have seen significant improvements in their practice long term.
Aligners do not require the clinic to stock any brackets or parts that are required for aligner treatment. When accounting for other indirect costs such as overheads, salaries of assistants, adopting aligners increasingly becomes an economic as much as a clinical decision.
As aligners are more comfortable than traditional braces, doctors have to address fewer patient complaints which leads to better patient compliance and excellent treatment outcomes. Emergency visits have become a thing of the past with aligners. There’s no hassle of loose wires and brackets, or injury to the surrounding soft tissues with aligners, as they fit perfectly around the teeth.
