The DSD Concept course is the heart of the DIGITAL SMILE DESIGN Protocol.
It is a 3 days theoretichal//practicaldemostrative course, very intense, where the speakers present the concept and the protocol on which this new and modern method of diagnose and treatment plan is based.
A simple but sistematic protocol will be described in order to capture photos that will allow to quickly and accurately perform (approximately 1 hour) the DIGITAL SMILE DESIGN.
A new approach to dynamically and statically document all the informations necessary for a modern and complete Esthetic Diagnosis.
A simplified method to highlight problems, to visualize solutions, even before making diagnostic impressions.
In few minutes and through simple steps is possible to visualize the required pictures necessary to diagnose the esthetic problems and to plan the solutions to solve esthetically the case
The conventional technique to pre-visualize the esthetic outcome (Mock-Up) requires a wax-up generally done by the dental technician following the instructions given by the dentist. This procedure ends up being not very convenient from a logistic, economic standpoint as well as leaving room for misunderstanding between the clinician, the technician and the patient.
The "virtual wax-up" allow, just in few minutes, to evaluate the position, the shape and the dimensions of the teeth and surrounding tissues, consequently the patients can understand what are our objective of treatment.
The DIGITAL SMILE DESIGN allow to share with the technician accurate measurements taken, analyzed and verified on the clinical pictures. This way the chances of mistakes or remakes are minimized and therefore teh classic wax-up can be completed smoothly.
Though the DIGITAL SMILE DESIGN the communication between all the members of the Team is extremely simplified, even if all far away from each other.
All the techniques, the softwares and the tricks utilized and tuned up by the speakers will be described in order to facilitate the interdisciplinary communication.
The preview of the final outcome before starting the treatment and before any irreversible procedure as well as before and conventional step (wax-up or setup) together with the patient present several advantages:
- The patient participate actively to the planning of his/her case
- The patient appreciates the effort dedicated to his/her treatment planning by the dentist and the other members of the team because he/she is aware of the "back-stage" of a treatment and the complexity related
- The patient, in this way, commit to a treatment having a better idea of what he/she will have to go though.
Keynote is now used as a "Digital Chart".
Pictures, radiographs, lines, notes, audio comments and much more are embedded into the slides...
All this is an incredibly efficient way of saving our datas.
Through a simplification of all the basic and fundamental steps necessary for treating successfully a patient such as Diagnosis, Treatment Planning, Communication with the Team, the possibility of sharing the planning with the patient through a visualisation of the treatment, brings as a consequence, an increase of the effectiveness and success of our clinics.
"SInce I perfom the DIGITAL SMILE DESIGN during my first visit, my way to diagnose esthetic issues has dramatically changed... in other words... my approach to patients has completely changed" - Dr. Andrea Ricci
"To be precise, efficient, minimally invasive and at the same time create beautiful work we need to improve as a team. The key for successful team work is correct planning and communication. The DSD Concept gives us the ability to envision a project, to share this project with the team mates and above all to motivate our patients."
"We believe that the DIIGTAL SMILE DESIGN is really a step forward in the future in order to better diagnose the face and smile esthetics. No doubts that is an important contribution for the dentist, the technician and ultimately for the patient"
“DSD concept for accurate facial aesthetic analysis and re-designing a smile in contemporary dentistry, is as essential today as utilizing a GPS to find your way”
"A unique course that has improved the skills of the most experts but especially the younger generation. It has been a pleasure to follow this pragmatic and sistematic presentation at such level of documentation. Digital Diagnostics is far more beneficial as compared to old-style wax-ups, slides and provisionals"
