We sometimes begin invisalign treatment with lower aligners and an upper appliance prior to beginning the upper aligners. Is there a way where we can enter that we delivered 0 upper aligners and x number of lower aligners in the aligner tracking tab? I noticed that the minimum number is 1.
Good day Helen ( @htrohatos ),
The system does require a non-zero number for both upper and lower aligners at this time. I am tagging the OrthoTrac Product Line Manager, @uriyahrobinson , to let him know of this suggestion. You may also submit the suggestion in the Product Ideas section of this site.
The Product Ideas section can be reached by clicking the Practice Management pull-down on the toolbar at the top, then selecting "Product Ideas" at the bottom. A direct link is also available here:
The Product Ideas section is closely monitored by management and popular ideas can also be voted on by the community.

hi @htrohatos ,
Thanks for providing this idea to the message board. I wish to learn more about this particular clinical case. Could you help me understand the reasoning behind taking this particular treatment approach? And how far along with the lower trays do you typically initiate the upper tray?
On a similar note, how many trays do you all provide to patients on average? Currently, the Universal Aligner Tracking feature tracks up to 40 trays.
This helps us to better understand how the updated design should be for a future release of the software.
Ever since our doctor changed to a one week protocol we have noticed that we have many patients with more than 60 aligners and have a couple with 80+. We have one patient that has 92 aligners in her initial series.
