With health and safety restrictions during COVID, a growing number of teens and adults made their choice in favor of clear dental aligners versus metal braces. Here’s why.
People’s smiles were thrust into the spotlight as the world turned to video conferencing. We all started analyzing our teeth even more than ever — and unlike metal braces, discreet clear aligners aren’t noticeable on Zoom calls.
Secondly, treatment using clear aligners requires fewer (and shorter) office visits with fewer manual procedures. Clear aligners have been a safer and more convenient option for both doctors and patients during the pandemic.
Industry reports indicate that the orthodontics market will soar over the next few years; driving even greater demand for more technologically advanced and effective treatment methods. Enter 3D Predict and its clear dental aligners based on artificial intelligence software.
The team has discovered a way to combine years of clinical experience and cutting-edge technology to equip orthodontists with a product to treat even the most complex cases with greater precision and efficiency. This allows doctors to formulate a more predictable and safe treatment plan.
With AI-driven aligners, an orthodontist is able to analyze the tooth crowns, roots, and bone that surrounds them, avoiding anatomically impossible tooth movements. Aligners are based on AI technology which boosts predictability, reduces the number of refinements in half, and cuts chair time by 30%.
This one-of-a-kind, proprietary, and patented software produces highly precise 3D models of a person’s smile. These models are then turned into highly effective, comfortable, and discreet dental aligners.
“3D Predict allows me to virtually simulate orthodontic treatment with the ability to visualize the resulting root position and its relationship to the alveolar housing. I believe this technology is a significant improvement over the traditional clinical crown-based virtual treatment simulations that were developed over twenty-plus years ago. The AI software has a very intuitive and user-friendly interface and helps me to provide a higher level of patient care by reducing negative outcomes associated with a clinical crown-based aligner system.”
The above testimonial comes from Dr. Jeffrey Miller who practices in Florida and Maryland, USA. His knowledge is frequently sought out by other orthodontists regarding difficult cases.
