Montana State Orthodontic Society

  • The Montana State Orthodontic Society at Big Sky Resort, February 7-9, 2019.

Our speaker this year will be Dr. Ed Lin, a practicing orthodontist in Green Bay, WI.
Here is a summary of the topic:
The Impact of 3D Digital Technologies In Orthodontics and Considerations for Creating An Efficient Digital Workflow

With the explosion of 3D digital technologies in the orthodontic industry, efficient digital workflow systems have become an integral component for the successful 3D digital orthodontic practice. In this lecture, Dr Lin will review how he and his team have implemented 3D imaging/CBCT, have integrated SureSmile for all full fixed orthodontic cases (labial and lingual), have mastered the 2-minute intraoral scan for impression free practices, created a 3D printing lab (Envision TEC, Structo, and Form2), and fabricated all orthodontic appliances off of 3D printed models (including 3D printed IDB trays). Most importantly they have created an efficient and cost-effective DIY aligner system as an alternative to Invisalign for all their aligner patients. In addition, Dr Lin will review the impact of Easy RX for management of these 3D digital technologies for an efficient digital workflow system.

Learning Objectives

• To gain a general understanding of 3D digital orthodontic technologies with CBCT, SureSmile, intraoral scanning, 3Shape's OrthoAnalyzer, Ulab, and 3D printing.
• To understand the impact with integration of these 3D orthodontic technologies and the clinical impact with workflow.
• To review important considerations with creating an efficient digital workflow system which will create a more efficient clinical environment.
