sort of customization with the click of a mouse. Each and every patient will have a completely customized prescription to achieve excellent results in a fraction of the time.” Through their unique partnership with SureSmile, OrthoDent serves as the “hands on the wheel” for the complicated software operation and information upload behind the technology – normally a burdensome proposition for the average orthodontic practice. OrthoDent has a value proposition that allows users to experience virtual treatment planning technology without frustration, and the practice learning curve towards full implementation of the technology is dramatically reduced. From the beginning, developers believed that there was a powerful advantage in the kind of exacting precision only robotically bent archwires would yield, however, it just wasn’t practical to have a $6M robot in the average dental office. 3DWired gives the orthodontist total control and allows absolute customization for each individual case, while harnessing the benefits of robotic manufacturing. The technology used to produce the custom wire has proven, over several thousand cases, to reduce the average treatment time by approximately 33%. 3DWired ortho packages are sold in three-, five- or ten-case offerings. An orthodontist can “kick the tires” of SureSmile before considering full implementation. The benefits of robotic manufacturing technology used to produce the custom wire has proven, over several thousand cases, to reduce the average treatment time by approximately 33%. Experienced 3DWired technicians provide support from start to finish helping clinicians create the most customized wire for each patient. This minimizes issues with software and staff training. Dentists find the service to be an invaluable component of the 3DWired system, and report that they appreciate spending less time sitting at a computer manipulating software and consequently having the freedom to spend more quality time with their patients. According to Jones, “Implant doctors have been doing this for years, outsourcing the software manipulation because their expertise is in surgery, not in front of the computer. Our 3DWired technicians have years of virtual orthodontic treatment planning software experience and we can help our partner dentists manipulate the data to get optimal results. This eliminates the need to train staff or invest everything in just one staff member who knows how to use the software.” Retainer Clear Experienced 3D Wired technicians provide support from start to finish helping clinicians create the most customized wire for each patient. 8 NORTH TEXAS DENTISTRY | www.northtexasdentistry.com Retainer Clear gives doctors access to the 3D printing revolution along with the tremendous advantage of digital storage.
