ObjectiveThe purpose of this work was to evaluate the completeness of surface structure representation offered by full-arch impression scans in different situations of tooth (mal)alignment and whether this completeness could be improved by performing rescans on the same impressions reduced sequentially to different levels of gingival height and by adding extra single scans to the number of single scans recommended by the manufacturer.MethodsThree pairs of full-arch resin models were used as… 

Digitale Kiefermodelle – Erstellung und kieferorthopädisch-diagnostische Anwendungen

Zusammenfassung Die digitale Kieferorthopädie erfuhr besonders in den letzten Jahren sowohl in der Diagnostik als auch in der Therapie großen Zuspruch. Digitale Kiefermodelle können entweder direkt

Generation of 3D digital models of the dental arches using optical scanning techniques

It is likely that in future intraoral scanning combined with 3D printing will completely replace conventional stone models of the dental arches.

Evaluation of the fit of zirconia copings fabricated by direct and indirect digital scanning procedures



Current Products and Practices OrthoCAD™: Digital Models for a Digital Era

It is estimated that approximately 10% of orthodontists in USA and Canada now utilize digital study models, and improving technology is making it increasingly popular worldwide.

Validity, reliability and reproducibility of three methods used to measure tooth widths for bolton analyses.

The validities of DigiModel and digital photographs for tooth width measurements and Bolton analyses are clinically acceptable, however, Digi model software provided more accurate Bolton's ratios and demonstrated greater reproducibility than the digital photographs.

An evaluation of the use of digital study models in orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning.

The results of the present study indicate that in the vast majority of situations digital models can be successfully used for orthodontic records.

Digital and plaster models: a comparison of measurements and times.

Measurements carried out on 3D models are a valid and reliable alternative to those currently used on plaster models in orthodontic practice, with the advantage of significantly reducing measurement times.
