PREVIEW OF THE CASE
Intraoral scanning. The patient’s lower and upper jaw as well as bite registration are IO scanned.
Smile Design. To improve our consultation with the patient regarding aesthetics, a smile design is created using the “Fabulous Smiles library.” Once a preferred smile is chosen, aesthetics is seamlessly transferred for design. Additionally, a Bellus 3D face scan was made of the patient using an iPad Pro.
Digital denture design benefits. By collecting all the information during the first consultation and combining the different options in the design, we achieve a time savings of at least 50% in both the clinical and lab side.
Digital workflow benefits to the patient. By using the TRIOS scanner and combining several steps in the design, we are able to save the patient three appointments.
