Why 3D Modeling what ‘s in it for me
3-D Modeling is the newest technological innovation to hit the Dental and Medical health care delivery process. The technology is on the verge of making a paradigm shift in our methodology to diagnose, pre-treatment planning and enhancing our treatment delivery by incorporating –precision.
Fundamentally the process facilitates the transfer of our images from CBCT, CT, MRI and 3D/4D Ultrasonography scans into working models to understand pathology, plan treatment procedure in a manner as yet not possible and deliver the patients with the full capability of treatment precision.
Simply 3D Printing is engaged in producing 3 D models from Radiological Imaging Scans like CT scan, MRI Scan, Dental CBCT Scan and 4 D Ultrasound Scans. The models created will be in different processes like FDM, SLA etc. depending on the accuracy level required appropriate technology will be utilized. We create 3 D models from CBCT, CT scans. These models are both surface and volume models showing the internal bone architecture of jaw bones—maxilla and mandible.
The procedure is simple for the Doctor. The Doctor needs to send the viewer DVD of the radiological scans which contains the Decoma files. These are converted to models and built.
Various fabrications are possible with same computerized technique or manual e.g. Surgical stents, Roth aligners etc.
Hitherto, we had difficulty as we could not use our advanced imaging in the planning and execution but had only a separate evaluation methods, relevant but distant. The process gives the patient a safe treatment process and allows the Doctor total control. 3 D Modeling is a revolution.
