Digital Simulation and Digital Planning - Essential Tools for Any Treatment Modality


Lingual Orthodontics has raised a challenge for clinicians to pre-plan teeth positions which was previously done solely by laboratories and only recently by virtual 3D software.

Nevertheless, digital simulation at initial consultation has become an essential requirement both by patients and doctors when choosing a treatment modality such as lingual braces or clear aligners.

We want to assess the types of movements, their magnitude and the end esult and to check alternate options such as: expansion and proclination, extraction, or orthognathic surgery.

The lecture will review some simulation tools available with case presentations.
