Ask Zenyum: How Do Dentists and Orthodontists Screen Me Before Treatment?

19 November 2020

Any clear aligners provider can claim that their treatment plans and assessments are reviewed by dentists and orthodontists, but how do you know the extent to which the experts actually participate in the process?

Damage to teeth and bites are almost irreversible and the last thing you want is to be gumming your food because you can’t chew properly, or have your teeth fall out (making your nightmares come true!). You can’t let just anyone prescribe you a treatment plan to fix your smilethe experts are critical to this process.

Here’s how our partner dentists and orthodontists make sure everything goes according to plan before and during your treatment.

You will be pre-assessed by a panel of independent experts

Our partner clinics are independent of Zenyum and are fully autonomous. So you can rest assured that your suitability for Zenyum clear aligners will be assessed objectively—the last thing you want is for your treatment plan to be misprescribed.

Once you fill out our free pre-assessment survey our doctors can gauge your expectations and what you would like to fix. You’ll also be guided on how to take photos of your teeth for our board-certified dentists and orthodontists to pre-assess your suitability for our ZenyumClearor ZenyumClearPlus treatment plans.

We’ll arrange a thorough, in-person dental consultation

In the event that you’re a suitable candidate, you’ll move on to the second stage and attend an initial consultation at one of Zenyum’s partner clinics which includes:

  • A physical assessment, 
  • 3D scan, and
  • X-rays.

After which, you will receive a personalised treatment plan within two to three weeks. This treatment plan will be presented in a 3D simulation format, showing the transformation of your smile. Your aligners will only go into production upon your approval of the prescribed treatment plan.

If you have any questions and would like to review your treatment plan again, simply reach out to our customer success team so that they can schedule a free appointment with your treating dentist.

“Clear aligners are a great alternative to traditional braces. Not only are they more aesthetic and discreet, but they are also more comfortable and hygienic to wear. Of course, not all cases are suitable for clear aligners, which is why it is very important to consult a certified dentist first."

Before treatment begins, your dentist will ensure your aligners fit you

You will need to get your aligners fitted by your dentist before you can start your treatment. This is also the time to flag out any discomfort from wearing your aligners if they don’t fit properly or if they fit into your gums too much. Your dentist will be able to make adjustments to your aligners for a perfect fit.


Your treatment progress will be tracked via the Zenyum app, on which you have to upload a photo of your teeth every 5 days for your treating dentist to monitor your progress.


If you run into any emergencies (such as losing your aligners), you can also reach your dentist via the app to get their advice on what to do.


You’ll be able to relax knowing that the experts have your backand be on your way to a beautiful smile.
