DSD (Digital Smile Design)
DSD is an advanced way to help plan a patient’s new smile. By digitally creating the best teeth positions, we can then, using a digital in-mouth scan and CT scan merge the two together then proceed to computer plan the best position of the implants. Once that is established, we then have a unique drill guide printed that will only allow the implants to go in one position, depth and angle that relates to the DSD plan. We reverse plan so that the crowns/ bridge fits the implants not the other way around.
The DSD design team will create a 2D Project which simulates the patient’s ‘before’ and ‘after’ which we can show the patient. This can then be used to print a 3D model of the case and transfer the Planning directly into the patient’s mouth.
Ensuring the optimal 3D position of the implants we reduce the possibility of failure and improve the aesthetic of the restoration.
Implant positions close to anatomical structures can be controlled using minimum distances and alarms.
The system is endorsed by first class implantologists and planning is performed by our expert dentists at DSD Virtual Lab Planning Centre.
By reducing the number of appointments, improving the aesthetics of the restoration and giving the possibility of minimally invasive surgery, we ensure our patient ́s satisfaction.
Digital Prosthesis Planning allow us the possibility to perform an immediate restoration, if the case meets the requirements.
