The aim of this paper is to illustrate how new opportunities offered by technology and diagnostic imaging can more easily create a 3D integration of soft tissue Face Scan and IOS (intra oral scan) for orthodontic evaluation in children.
Through TrueDepth technology, a software commonly used for digital devices such as smartphones and tablets, the authors illustrate the acquisition of facial scans by means of different applications, and their integration with IOS to perform diagnostic evaluations and treatment planning at zero biological cost for patients.
TrueDepth technology is both accurate and easy to use for all clinicians, even those less accustomed to digital innovations. In the past, stereophotogrammetric systems and devices were used, and they are the gold standard for three-dimensional acquisitions. However, there is a major drawback associated with this technology as it is expensive and non-portable. Truedepth technology is an effective substitute, as smartphone applications are portable, cheaper, and more accessible, giving each orthodontist the ability to take advantage of the benefits of facial scanning in their daily practice.
