This article presents a clear example about how 3D technologies are strongly entering as fundamental elements in the medical field.
In particular, it explores how the use of 3D technologies can implement the dental prosthesis planning and realization by presenting the relationship between the body posture and the digital dentistry in a real total upper rehabilitation with Toronto Bridge. The article provides an overview about 3D scanning technologies, digital smile design and CAD software, focusing the attention on the application of 3D body scanning technologies in the digital dentistry workflow for the analysis of the prosthetic treatment result.
The article concludes that 3D technologies are implementing everyday more and more the work of both dentists and dental technicians by providing more precise and accurate working protocols. Moreover, the application of 3D body scanning in this field is a new trend, which elevate the pre and post treatment analysis at a very specific level, which allows to understand the cause and the effect of each single pathologic case.
