6.3 

Cooling off periodDestination Smile aligners are deemed a medical device designed specifically to match a patient's specific needs, making them a customised medical product which cannot be resold once produced and are therefore exempt from any cooling-off period. 

 

6.4 

Disposing of Aligners 

  • Patients are advised not to dispose or discard of any of their treatment aligners until they have completed their treatment in full and a retainer has been received and fitted,  
  • On occasion specific aligner steps are required for backstepping during treatment, if they are no longer available replacement will need to be purchased by the patient incurring further cost 
  • Also we advise the patient to keep the final aligner in as normal until their final retainer is received  

6.5 

Impressions  

At times impressions received  back by the lab once received and reviewed may be deemed unusable or not of the quality required to produce and aligner, this can happen when the customer has not captured the correct details our have drags in the putty which can impact the quality of an aligner if produced.Destination Smile will only produce the highest quality of aligners and therefore if the quality is in anyway reduced you may need to remake your impressions to produce what is required.  

In this instance a Home Smile remake kit will need to be purchased. The cost for a remake kit is  £25/€25/$25. 

 

6.6 

Refinements:  

If you have completed or are in the middle of aligner treatment but feel as though you could use a little more help (or have not met the treatment fully for whatever reason).We offer attractive refinement packages beginning at the price of £199/€199 

 

Note: This may increase depending on the complexity of the case and volume requirement of additional aligners.

 

Included in your refinement treatment package are the following: 

  • One free Home Smile remake kit or one free scan at your nearest Destination Smile clinic 
  • A full evaluation by our dental team 
  • A brand-new refinement treatment plan 
  • Up to four new steps of aligners (minimum cost 199 £/€, exceeding 4 aligners steps will incur additional costs of 50 €/£ per additional step) pricing structure can change without notice. 
  • Final alignment retainer to complete treatment

As per your signed T&C's, you agree that you have read, acknowledged and accepted that the purchased 3d model plan was a predictive model showing the possible final positioning of your teeth and as with most medical procedures we cannot guarantee to achieve these results in their entirety. Due to the complexity of the human body, each individual is different and therefore results may vary on a person to person basis. There are margins where particular gap closures or particular teeth rotations may not be achieved as detailed/show within the plan. 

 

In treatment Refinements Compliance: You must contact Destination Smile at the point in treatment where your issue has occurred. and failing to do so may lead to an increase in refinement cost from the basic.  It is extremely important that you do not move onto your next set of aligners before contacting our specialist dental team for guidance on how to proceed. Strict adherence following the treatment plan and your personal wear schedule ensure you achieve the maximum movements. Aligners must be worn for a minimum of 22 hours per day and only removed for eating and drinking. If you have followed these guidelines and aren't happy with the results then don't you worry we can help after all, it's what we love to do! 

 

Post Treatment Compliance: For customers who have requested their retainers and then feel the need for further refinement, you must contact Destination Smile within and no later than one month of your retainer being received to still be applicable for a refinement package. After this time you will be required to pay an administration fee to reopen your case or possibly required to purchase a full new treatment dependant on the complexity of alignment relapses. After 3 months your case cannot be reopened and a new treatment will need to be purchased. 

 

Requesting the production of your retainer is an acknowledgement that you have completed a successful aligner treatment which automatically closes your aligner therapy treatment file with Destination Smile.

Fitting issues beyond this 30 day period if not started are not the responsibility of Destination Smile. Beginning of treatment is both compulsory and the sole responsibility of the patient where failure will breach treatment compliance and an additional cost will be applied to produce aligners where changes or alterations need to be made.

10.0 ADDITIONAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

10.1

AWARENESS 

Successful cosmetic dental treatment is a partnership between the doctor and the patient. As a general rule, informed and cooperative patients can achieve positive alignment results. While recognising the benefits of a beautiful healthy smile, you should also be aware that, as with all cosmetic, healing dental treatment, there are limitations and potential risks. These are seldom serious enough to indicate that you should not have treatment. Please read this information carefully. Ensure you know what is expected of you as the patient (or as the parent/guardian of a young patient) during treatment. Clear aligners treatment is an orthodontic treatment in which the patient wears a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually move the teeth to improve bite function and/or aesthetic appearance. This treatment is intended to provide the end benefits of traditional “wired”, “metal” brace treatment, such as straight teeth and improved bite function, as well as the following benefits that are only available when going wireless: 

 

10.2

BENEFITS 

  • The aligners are clear, so people may not even notice you wearing them. 
  • There are no cuts or abrasions from wires or brackets, so clear aligners are more comfortable than traditional braces. 
  • The aligners are removable, allowing you to eat, drink, brush and floss with freedom. 

Although the benefits generally outweigh the potential risks, all factors should be considered before making the decision to wear aligners. If you choose to undergo clear cosmetic aligner treatment with Destination Smile will manufacture aligners customized for your teeth based on your dentist’s prescription. The Destination Smile dentist is responsible for delivering and managing your care.

 

10.3

POSSIBLE OCCURRENCES WHICH CAN INCREASE TREATMENT TIME 

  • Treatment time may exceed estimates. 
  • Poor compliance of your dentist’s instructions,  
  • wearing aligners less than 22 hours per day,  
  • excessive bone growth,  
  • poor oral hygiene can lengthen treatment time, increase the cost, and affect the quality of the end results. 
  • Unusually shaped teeth can also extend treatment time and affect results. For instance, short clinical crowns can cause problems with aligner retention and slow or prevent teeth movement. • Tooth decay, periodontal disease, decalcification (permanent markings on the teeth), or inflammation of the gums may occur if proper oral hygiene and preventative maintenance are not maintained, whether wearing aligners or otherwise
    . 

10.4

THINGS TO WATCH OUT FOR 

  • Sores and irritation of the soft tissue of the mouth (gums, cheeks, tongue and lips) are possible but rarely occur due to wearing aligners. 
  • Initially, the aligners may temporarily affect your speech. Patients generally adapt quickly to wearing aligners and it is rare that speech is impaired for an extended period of time. 
  • While wearing aligners, you may experience a temporary increase in salivation or dryness of the mouth. Certain medications can increase this. 
  • Any medications you may be taking and your overall medical condition can affect your dental treatment. 
  • Though uncommon, allergic reactions to the material used during treatment may occur. If you believe you are experiencing an adverse reaction, inform your dentist immediately. 
  • Tooth sensitivity and tenderness of the mouth may occur during treatment—especially when advancing from one aligner to the next. 
  • Bone and gums, both of which support the teeth, can be affected by wearing aligners. In some cases, their health may be impaired or aggravated. 
  • Wearing aligners may aggravate teeth—previously traumatized or not. 
  • Existing dental restorations, such as crowns and bridges, may be affected by wearing aligners. They may become dislodged and require re-cementation or in some instances, replacement. Before any dental restorations are replaced or added, consult your dentist, as they can affect the way your aligners sit. 
  • Teeth may supra-erupt (come out of the gums more than other teeth) if not at least partially covered by the aligner. 
  • In very rare cases, there are chances of tooth devitalization (loss of vitality). 
  • Root resorption (shortening) can occur during any type of orthodontic treatment, including clear aligners. Shortened roots are of no disadvantage under healthy conditions. In rare cases, root resorption can result in loss of teeth. 
  • In cases of severe crowding or multiple missing teeth, it is more likely that the aligner may break. Contact your dentist as soon as possible if this occurs. 
  • Because orthodontic appliances are worn in the mouth, accidentally swallowing or aspirating the aligner—in whole or in part—may occur. 
  • Though rare, problems may occur in the jaw joint, causing joint pain, discomfort, headaches or ear problems. Inform your doctor of any such problems immediately. 
  • Aligners worn out of their intended sequence can delay treatment results and result in complications including (but not limited to) patient discomfort. Always wear aligners in the order specified by your doctor. 
  • In some cases, a “black triangle” of missing gingival tissue may be visible below the interproximal contact when teeth are aligned after being overlapped for an extended period of time. 
  • Results may relapse if proper retainer wear is not followed as directed by your doctor. 
  • A successful treatment outcome cannot be guaranteed. After the customised aligners have been shipped, some cases may require refinement with additional clear aligners to achieve ideal results. There may be additional costs to you if you require such procedures. Always follow the directions for use (included with each aligner package) for best results. 

 

10.5

AGREED DISCLAIMER, CONSENT AND AGREEMENT - APPLICABLE ONCE GOODS ARE PURCHASED

I understand that Destination Smile does not practice dentistry or give medical advice. I understand that Destination Smile manufactures medical devices based on instructions from the prescribing dentist. I understand that I should always contact my dentist regarding my expectations, difficulties, results, or any other aspects of my treatment. I understand that it may be necessary to take impressions and/or photographs for diagnosis, professional review, and submission to Destination Smile in order to create customised aligners for my cosmetic dental treatment. I recognize that these will be included in my medical records, which may include "personal data" as that term is defined and protected by the Data Protection Document. I consent to these medical records being disclosed to my dentist, other consulting dentists and orthodontists, and aligner manufacturers, some or all of whom may be located in the European Union and/or the United States of America, for the purpose of treatment, payment, and health care operations. I agree to the transfer of my personal data outside the European Union. I further agree that my dentist and/or Destination Smile may use my medical records for research and educational purposes, but only to the extent that no individual identifiers, including but not limited to my name or address, are used or disclosed.

Chronic usage of anti-inflammatory medications, aspirin, estrogens, or calcitonin may slow or limit tooth movement. 

I hereby certify that I have been examined by a licensed dentist within the past year, have received a thorough dental cleaning in the last six months, and do not have any of the above conditions or any other condition that may affect my medical or dental health or ability to be treated properly. 

Additionally, I understand that I have been advised by Destinationsmile.co.uk, that my best health interest would be served by having an orthodontic consultation by a licensed dental professional before purchasing any dental aligner or positioning system. I certify that I am over 18 years of age and do not wish to have an “in person” orthodontic evaluation before purchasing the Destinationsmile.co.uk Aligner treatment. In the event that I do not proceed with treatment due to a contraindication or treatment or any other medical reason, I will seek care and follow up with my regular dental professional. 

I have read and understand Destination Skin Group Ltd’s Terms and Conditions and agree to be bounded by them. I accept that the predictive positioning is an estimated position and I am not guaranteed to achieve these results. I agree to wear a Destination Smile retainer for 22 hours a day, for 6 months, followed by indefinite use of the retainer at night, to maintain the results of my treatment and promote healing.
