Title: The use of CAD/CAM to simulate interdisciplinary treatment, from planning to finishing


Intraoral scanners and 3D software today enable us to be in full control of our cases, including lingual ones, long before the start of the treatment, as well as during treatment and, most importantly, during the finishing stage.
Now our chair time is minimized thanks to the accuracy gained by 3D tools. 
The lecture will lead the audience step-by-step through the procedure, regardless of the bracket technique employed.
