The future is here! CAD/CAM digital workflow in orthodontics: from planning to manufacturing predicted optimal smile
Modern dentistry involves 3D technologies with the help of intraoral scanners and 3D treatment planning. Clear aligners have evolved significantly in recent years and we can treat almost every case without the need of bonded braces on the teeth.
The lecture will focus on the digital workflow from scanning to planning, from in-office minor tooth movements to full 3D individualized orthodontic appliances. Simulation techniques help the clinician to build an anchorage system that can obviate the need for dental or orthodontic implants.
