Description

One Clinician's Journey with 3D Imaging and 3D Printing Over the Past Decade

Dr. Lin will review his experiences, guidelines, and protocols with both cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) and 3D printing. He believes that the orthodontic profession is transitioning into 3D digital treatment for our patients as the standard of care. Both CBCT and 3D printing are major technology differentiators in making this transition happen and, most importantly, are improving the quality of care which orthodontists are able to provide to their patients.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the difference between low dose and regular dose CBCT and the appropriate times to use them in the clinical setting
  • Describe the process and technology for 3D printing
  • Explain the different applications of 3D printing in orthodontics

Intraoral Scanners and 3D Printers: Is it Time to Upgrade Your Digital Toolbox?

Is it time to digitize your toolbox? Intraoral scanners and 3D printers are at the cutting edge of orthodontic technology. The time is right to evaluate whether these amazing tools can, and should, be integrated into your practice. Navigating this ever-changing landscape can be tricky, so this lecture hopes to create clarity out of confusion by discussing how intraoral scanners and 3D printers work, what your options are, and how they can be integrated into your practice.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the various intraoral scanning and 3D printing systems available to orthodontists
  • Determine what scanning and printing systems would best fit your needs
  • Evaluate the pros and cons of integrating intraoral scanning and 3D printing into your practice
