Comparative Analysis of the Treatment Results with DENT@LIGN Digital Aligners and the Virtual Treatment Plan
Keywords:aligners, orthodontics, virtual treatment plan
The aim of the present study is to evaluate the results of the treatment with DENT@LIGN digital aligners by comparative analysis between printed virtual 3D motivational models, obtained from the virtual treatment plan, and conventional plaster casts, from the end of orthodontic treatment.
We measured and evaluated 136 (69 from the upper and 67 from the lower dental arch) conventional plaster casts of 72 patients and 3D printed virtual motivational models of the same patients. The obtained data was evaluated statistically.
The results from the comparative analysis showed high coincidence of the treatment results with DENT@LIGN digital aligners and the virtual treatment plan. The data showed insignificant differences between conventional plaster casts and 3D digital models in the measured parameters.
This gave us the reason to believe that the virtual treatment planning and motivational models correspond to the achieved clinical results and are an overall reliable method for treatment planning.
