The optimized digital toolset

by Dr. Bruce Goldstein

3D imaging has become a very popular diagnostic aid. This technology has allowed us to accurately visualize teeth and their relationship to the surrounding bone. Visualization is only part of the equation: the real benefit is to be able to use these diagnostic aids to help guide treatment.
Initial Observations
Patient KD, a 14-year-old male, presented with a Class I bi-maxillary protrusive malocclusion. He had severe lower crowding, a maxillary cant, and lip incompetence. Third molars were impacted and gingival tissue on the lower anteriors was very thin.
Treatment Plan
The ability to use technology to help us achieve superior results for our patients is what suresmile is all about. Being able to see potential problems and having a mechanism for dealing with these problems is what separates suresmile from any other treatment modality
