Current Orthodontics, CAD Systems, and their implementation with Softwares, where we are, and where are we going!

Hello dear colleagues, Digital Dentistry is not the Future, it has been the present for a long time!
Here I want to share a valuable information that I have collected for you!

The advancement of science and technology and its application in the field of health has led to great success in almost each and every one of the treatments performed, providing the patient with greater safety, comfort and tranquility. 

Currently, the use of software in the dental office allows us to individualize each case, facilitating the issuance of a correct diagnosis, and thus establishing the best treatment plan for the patient, obtaining 100% predictable results. These predictive studies allow us to show the patient in 3D what the final result is like without even having started said treatment. Nowadays, when choosing a clinic, patients increasingly value the technological endowment available to them, even above the specialization of the professional who will treat them.

Since patients by referral or through social networks know the technology applied to dentistry, they demand that their dentist trust them and that they have the technology.

Advances in Orthodontics

When someone seeks to improve their smile, what they need is the guarantee and security that it will happen and it will be done in the best way with the best materials. Today 3D planning and computer dentistry allow this.

With this we understand what is needed to be part of a World of Digital Orthodontics:

To be part of Digital Orthodontics you will need:

1) Intraoral scanner: With a 20 micron lens, the intraoral scanning process is performed in a very fast time allowing a detailed copy of the mouth and / or model, thus reducing its margin of error. It is state of the art and provides a precise procedure. 

2) Softwares: Nemotec, a dental biotechnology company, has a digital multidisciplinary platform called NemoStudio, which allows you to communicate with any colleague worldwide and handle your cases in a comfortable, flexible, and easily guided way.

For Orthodontics, one of the software used is

NemoCast, with NemoCast 3D all models will be stored digitally. The program allows you to view the models in a convenient way for the orthodontist and the patient: lateral, frontal, occlusal, and articulated models. With it, you can obtain Model Orientation, Occlusal Plane Identification, Contact Points, Tooth Segmentation, Tooth Axis and Root Identification, Andrews Plane Calculation, Tooth Final Position, Movement Sequence, Control of The progress of the treatment through superimposed models to evaluate the progress and the result of the treatment.

On the other hand, to develop Cephalometries, there is NemoCeph software that allows diagnosing the problem to effectively plan the orthodontic case. As a tool, it offers many possibilities in the diagnosis, treatment plan, and presentation of the case in orthodontics.

And if it is necessary to perform orthognathic cases, NemoFab is the software used by orthognathic surgeons where they can communicate with this tool worldwide, carefully planning their orthognathic treatments through the 3D Module.

3) A 3d printer: The evolution of digital technologies in orthodontics has influenced the traditional clinical workflow towards an exclusively digital format. In the market, there is a wide range of 3D Printers, and one of them is Formlabs, a 3D printer is a type of technology that allows you to create custom dental restorations, molds, and more from a 3D scan of the mouth of the patient. Than carving the image into a ceramic block, like CAD / CAM technology, a 3D printer prints the objects one layer at a time. With a 3D printer, it is possible to print objects, be it a dental restoration, an orthodontic appliance, or a model, from a variety of different materials. The 3D printer can even reproduce the smallest details on the patient's teeth for a much more realistic appearance. The process is fairly simple. First, a digital scan of the mouth is taken, then the scan is displayed on a computer monitor, once the design is complete, the information will be sent to the 3D printer. In just a few hours, the manufacture of the item is complete.


 Understanding the concept "Do it yourself or we do it": 

Understanding the Concept 'Do it yourself or we do it for you Sometimes we have a very tight schedule and where we limit ourselves to not entering the digital world because we think it will take us a long time, I am surprised that with Nemotec it is possible that its technicians will leave everything ready to then be the one to configure the case.
