For years Digital Orthodontics has focused on providing orthodontists with cutting edge solutions, pushing towards a future of 100% digital 3D orthodontic treatment planning.

Imaging is one of the most important tools for orthodontists to evaluate craniofacial features and plan treatment. With modern 3D diagnostic imaging anatomical data is quickly gathered using scanning equipment, such as the 3Shape Trios scanner. The data is then processed and displayed on a 3D model which can be constructed, monitored and measured from any perspective or direction.

Facial soft and hard tissues and dentition are three main considerations in the planning of orthodontic treatment. An accurate 3D record of a patient’s dental, facial and skeletal structure, which is interactive and measurable, is of great benefit to orthodontists.

Digital Orthodontics makes it easy for you to utilise modern technology at your practice with model manufacturing, treatment proposal and full digital appliance services. You can send us a traditional alginate impression (which we convert to a digital model) or the raw digital impression and we’ll take care of the rest. We have built an online portal to make it easy to submit, manage and review your cases – you’ll still get the final say on the tooth and bracket positioning and the ability to view the projected result for your patient.

3D Orthodontics scanning technology

There are a number of intra-oral scanners which can be used for 3D orthodontics modeling, including the 3Shape Trios Digital Impression System. The Trios system allows dentists and orthodontists to easily make high quality digital impressions that can be used for a range of treatment options. Click here for more information. There are numerous benefits to you and your patients, which we will now examine.

Benefits for patients and orthodontists

Digital 3D orthodontic technology presents many advantages; messy impressions are eliminated, comfort is improved for patients, accuracy is increased and chair time is reduced. With 3D digital imaging the scan is transferred directly to interactive treatment planning software, enabling tooth movement to be adjusted and guided directly on the screen with real-time treatment presentations. Another key advantage is the computer-aided generation of custom appliances; this leads to increased accuracy and precision. Ultimately digital 3D orthodontics is more efficient resulting in better and faster treatment.
