Align Technology Announces Treatment Planning Collaboration With Digital Smile Design
The DSD concept is an interdisciplinary treatment planning approach that combines state of the art restorative and orthodontic dentistry based on the analysis of the patient's facial and dental proportions, together with patient communication tools and techniques to create beautiful smiles for patients. In combination with Invisalign treatment planning, DSD's esthetic, facially-driven smile design protocols and Invisalign clear aligners allow doctors to improve pre-restorative tooth positions and/or tooth alignment prior to starting restorative treatment. The combination results in a less invasive approach that seeks to preserve as much tooth structure as possible.
"We are excited to announce the collaboration with DSD, our first step toward enabling combined teeth straightening with the Invisalign system and restorative workflows to help dentists achieve their ideal aesthetic and functional treatment goals," said
"Providing dentists the ability to visually combine DSD's unique treatment and patient communications tools with Invisalign treatment planning is ideal in designing beautiful smiles," said Digital Smile Design Founder, Dr.
The collaborative workflow with DSD is expected to be available later in 2017.
