DIY Orthodontics Design It Yourself

Nearcos C. Panayi

Since its recognition as the first specialty of dentistry, the practice of orthodontics has been influenced by the development of new materials, techniques, bracket designs and prescriptions, appliances, and software.
Digitization and automation are transforming the entire landscape of how orthodontics is practiced, and the consequence is the “do it yourself” concept.
With the technology available today with intraoral scanning, CBCT imaging, and CAD software, we can create the virtual patient and manipulate dental models virtually.
Not only does this enable better and more precise treatment planning, but it also facilitates better communication with the patient.
Perhaps most exciting is that it permits in-house designing and printing of the majority of orthodontic appliances.
This book describes the current digital technology that is used in orthodontics, including volume and surface scanning, 3D printing, CAD software, and artificial intelligence, before delving into a “design it yourself” guide presenting the application of this technology in all aspects of orthodontic treatment
