Digital Planning and Custom Orthodontic Treatment offers a thorough overview of digital treatment planning as it relates to custom orthodontic treatment. Chapters are focused on 3D imaging, movement of the mandible (4D imaging), digital planning of treatment, CAD/CAM fabrication of appliances, and effective transfer of the custom appliances to the dentition. The book describes current workflows for a number of custom systems available, including the aligner system Invisalign, the Insignia buccal custom appliances, and lingual custom systems such as Incognito, the Harmony System, eBrace/eLock, and custom wires made by Sure Smile.
Written to emphasize practical information, the book offers up–to–date coverage of digital documentation in 3D and 4D for analyzing malocclusions and for the planning, design, and fabrication of custom orthodontic appliances. Digital Planning and Custom Orthodontic Treatment is a useful guide for orthodontists, maxillofacial surgeons, and practicing dentists.
