Module 4: 3D Monitoring & Fixed Appliances

3D monitoring is a patented movement tracking algorithm that allows you to quantitatively assess your treatment with fixed appliances. Learn how to leverage this unique technology to enhance all types of fixed orthodontic treatments.

Dashboard overview in fixed appliances

Dr. Steven Olsburgh


In this video, Dr. Olsburgh introduces the main features of the 3D monitoring dashboard and demonstrates how to interpret the activity curves.

Interpreting activity curves

Dr. Steven Olsburgh


Here’s a brain teaser: Can you correlate the activity curves with the type of treatment and identify what stage it is? In this video, Dr. Olsburgh challenges your knowledge through real-life clinical cases.

The Journey of a Patient
Undergoing Braces Monitoring

Dr. Steven Olsburgh


The paradigm shift in orthodontic care: how is it possible to have increased patient care with fewer appointments?
In this video, Dr. Olsburgh explains how the remote monitoring system helps you better follow the journey of a patient with braces through better communication, patient education, AI monitoring and virtual appointments.

Decision Making in Fixed Appliances Monitoring

Dr. Steven Olsburgh


In this video, Dr. Olsburgh goes over the process of reviewing scans; understanding the logic behind setting up protocols; and how to create decision-trees for fixed appliance treatment monitoring.

Anticipate Upcoming Appointments

Dr. Steven Olsburgh


Dr. Olsburgh shows how the monitoring system allows doctors to follow up with the patient’s treatment through “virtual visits” to evaluate the progress at specific timepoints and eventually anticipate the upcoming in-office appointment for optimized clinical efficiency. Welcome to your Virtual Practice.

Defining scan frequency for specific types of monitoring

Dr. Steven Olsburgh


This video explains the impact of the scan frequency on patient monitoring and shows how to set the most appropriate scan frequency for specific types of monitoring.

The scan frequency: Clinical cases

Dr. Steven Olsburgh


In this video, Dr. Olsburgh talks through 6 clinical cases with different scan frequencies and elaborates on the importance of his choices.

Monitoring Criss-Cross elastics treatment

Dr. Steven Olsburgh


In the following video, Dr. Olsburgh reviews: the force systems involved with criss-cross elastics; how to set up remote monitoring; and how to quantitatively evaluate this kind of treatment through the 3D monitoring system.

Monitoring Rapid Palatal Expander treatment

Dr. Steven Olsburgh


In this video Dr. Olsburgh explains the force systems involved with rapid palatal expander treatments and demonstrates how to set up the most appropriate monitoring process. The video also includes a how-to guide for remote and quantitative evaluation of the evolution of the treatment.

Monitoring Carriere Motion appliance treatment

Dr. Steven Olsburgh


Dr. Olsburgh reviews the force systems involved with the carriere motion appliance; teaches how to set up the monitoring process; and shows how to remotely and quantitatively evaluate treatment, bringing the patient in only when needed.

Retention Monitoring: A New Business Model

Dr. Grant Duncan


In this video, Dr. Grant explains how to leverage retention monitoring technology to ensure long-term stability and keep patients happy, all while generating passive income.

Decision Making in Hygiene Monitoring

Dr. Steven Olsburgh


Learn how to review scans; understand the logic behind setting up protocols; and make decision-trees for monitoring hygiene and gingival conditions.

The benefits of braces monitoring

Dr. Murtuza Hasnaini


Dr. Hasnaini explains how he uses the 3D monitoring feature to remotely monitor his braces cases with DM.

In this vide he covers:

  • A brief overview of the 3D monitoring technology
  • How wire passivity is detected
  • The benefits and the ROI of 3D monitoring with braces cases
