We would like to introduce you to Guided Smile Design.
Rather than conventional digital smile design - that invariably involves a singular step in the planning process, we would like to introduce you to the result of the members of International Digital Dental Academy’s digital masters development, an in depth process that will revolutionise the smile design pathway. The NEXT evolution in smile design.
Just as Guided Implant Surgery involves prosthetically planning the implant surgery - Ie planning the final position prior to placement - Guided Smile Design aims to make the entire process guided with the end result planned prior to even the prep of the teeth.
The disadvantage of thi conventional single step smile design is the risk of loss of information and failure to achieve a planned result from 2D or even 3D.
With Guided Smile Design - or GSD - the patient’s new smile is planned incorporating existing principles but by using a common pathway we can predictably maintain the planning.
The GSD steps include using a common tooth library through each;
1) 2D DSD using
2) 2D to 3D DSD through facial analysis.
3) Live Test Drive
4) Guided prep
5) CAD Copy of mockup
6) CAM manufacture & Recreation of natural surface texture
This six step process can be OPEN and utilise any software that incorporates the same tooth libraries. It can even incorporate Meshmixer through the IDDA Meshmixer toothlibraries.
What is the benefit of this?
The main benefit of GSD is that the patient, the dentist AND the technician can all be on the same wavelength and understand limitations from the very start of the Guided Smile Design process.
