Digital Orthodontics: State of the art and Future
Digital Orthodontics is not a new phenomenon. We were
introduced to the digital world with introduction of computers in our offices.
Patient history, diagnosis, treatment plan, cephalometric measurements, growth
prediction, patient appointments, monitoring progress of treatment etc. were
the early uses of digital introduction in orthodontics. In last three decades
we have progressed tremendously with introduction of new treatment modalities
such as aligners, cad cam designed appliances and TAD placement for an example.
This presentation will discuss what is in store for us in future and how
orthodontics will be practiced in next few decades.
