Complete the case adding further files (intra oral and facial STLs, CBCTs, T-Scan, X-Rays, etc) to the documentation in the DSDApp.
Fundamentals of a facial-driven Smile Design. One of the hardest steps of the dental treatment is to understand what the patient is looking for and also to explain the treatment options & expected outcome at the first appointment. You will learn basic principles of Digital Smile Design for a facially driven 2D Smile Simulations in the DSDApp to improve the communication with your patients.
Create Smile Simulations using the DSDApp for a facially driven planning and improving patient communication.
Use Finalize Tools for a natural-looking Smile Design.
Visualize Expected Treatment Results and Improve Patient Communication
Change completely the way you present treatment planning by creating before & after photos/videos.
HANDS-ON AND DEMONSTRATION:
How to create before & after photos and videos to present in a simple presentation to the patient using the DSDApp.
