A follow-up correction, called a refinement, is a finishing treatment for your tooth position once your treatment plan has been completed. Refinements are required for the completion of a large proportion of all orthodontic treatments, including traditional treatments.
We tolerate only the slightest deviations: our medical team will only tolerate a deviation up to 0.4mm in comparison with the planned before-and-after simulation. If your actual tooth position deviates more than this from the planned results, we will offer you a free refinement if your case meets certain other conditions. In order to receive a free refinement, you must have been compliant during your treatment, i.e. worn your teeth aligners for at least 22 hours a day, used our app as prescribed and informed us of your refinement request in a timely manner. If you do not meet these requirements, you may request a refinement at your own expense. The total costs depend on your compliance during your treatment as well as the time that has passed since the end of your treatment.
If you would like to request a refinement, please contact us for a personal consultation at info@PlusDent.co.uk.
