Posted on 9/25/2023 by Pacific Oral and Facial Surgery Center
The Use of 3D In OrthodonticsTechnological advancements are happening in every field of study. They have brought about significant change. A proof that the world is changing. In the orthodontic field, technology is revolutionizing treatments. With the introduction of laser treatment in treating oral disorders, there is also the invasion of 3D technology.

History of 3D

3D technology is not entirely new to orthodontics, they were not widely accessible until recently. With the introduction of Invisalign in late early 2000, the use of 3D image machinery to make retainers has been a dream come true. For instance, Invisalign's most important advancement is the personalized and faster service that delivers the best results to our patients. Some other 3D improvements include:

3D scanners

During checkups, the first step for any orthodontist is to gather as much information as possible about the patient's jaws and teeth. Traditionally, X-rays were used. The introduction of 3D scanners has made it simpler and more efficient. Orthodontists can create a clearer and more accurate picture of the teeth. The images enable the orthodontist to understand your mouth, devising a treatment that will suit you.

Other options

3D does not stop at providing orthodontists with a way to gather clear images of your teeth, they can be used to create crowns and bridges for teeth restoration. Previously, they were made by hand or by a generic machine. With the introduction of 3D, each tooth can be uniquely crafted to fit perfectly in the patient's mouth, at an affordable fee. Thanks to 3D and technological advancements, our team of dentists offers the best services in town.
