''Three-Dimensional Printing Technology in Orthodontics forDental Models''

Updated: Apr 30

Bending wires in Lingual Orthodontics

Session 1

by Prof. Alfredo Gilbert


Dr. Gilbert has spent several years digitizing the procedures of lingual orthodontics in order to simplify and refine the technique. Initially, digitization was used primarily for administrative purposes to, above all, facilitate the storage of patient records. The technological advances that have occurred during the last 15 years have allowed automated and semi-automated systems to be incorporated into daily practice that the dentist, and in this case the lingual orthodontist, uses to gather information, diagnose and plan treatments. The topic of today's talk will allow the orthodontist to know an in-house system, consisting of the reception of dental images through a scanner, the preparation of the treatment plan (Setup) with the use of a software, the materialization of the objective of the treatment through a 3D printer, the positioning of the brackets and their subsequent transfer to the mouth and the manufacture of the wire arches using a bending robot for managing the whole orthodontics plan. Everything inside the dental office, without needing to send anything outside the orthodontist's own facilities.

Cases treated through this digital system will be presented, where its effectiveness can be assessed. For more :
