The Innovative 3D Modeling and 3D Printing Software for Dentistry and Orthodontics
Every patient’s mouth is unique. Because of this it makes it impossible for dentists and orthodontists to use a standard mold across the board.
Without a 3D view of their patients’ teeth it can be extremely challenging for dentists and orthodontists to create custom solutions.
Unfortunately, creating a 3D model for every patient is not only expensive but also quite time-consuming.
The founder of Orthoselect was on a mission to facilitate orthodontists with treatment planning and bracket placement. To do so, the client wanted to create a desktop application that would enable accurate 3D models of the patients’ teeth to be made. They hoped for software that would copy and replicate the teeth of each patient in a way that would make it easier for orthodontists to treat patients more effectively.
The Scopic Solution
Scopic’s C++ developers coded this 3D modeling vision to life using OpenGL and VTK technologies, among others.
The software and models are used in treatment planning and in specialized cases, such as OrthoSelect’s digital indirect bonding service (DIBS) for both fixed braces and removable aligners. The easy-to-use interface empowers healthcare practitioners to use this application hassle-free.
