Abstract
(EN)
Systems, devices, and methods for tracking compliance of orthodontic appliance usage are provided herein. In one embodiment, a compliance device is configured to be disposed within a patient's mouth and comprises a sensor configured to detect at a first time and at a second time, subsequent to the first time, an input associated with whether an orthodontic appliance is at least partially disposed within the patient's mouth. The compliance device is configured to be coupled to the orthodontic appliance or to a tooth of the patient. The compliance device is configured to store data associated with input detected by the sensor at the first time and the second time. The compliance device comprises a transceiver or a light emitter.
