Anato Models 3D Digital Study Models

EDI is pleased to offer this amazing digital orthodontic service to our referring doctors. EDI works closely with some of the most innovative and advanced dental software companies today to help make the most out of CBCT data. Anatomodel from Anatomage, creates dynamic, digital study models with optional 3D face modeling, complete with a free software viewer. These digital models can be segmented as needed and they can even produce a set of stone models from the same CBCT scan, allowing you to offer impressionless study models! For more information on this digital model service, please contact bev@edxi.com

Anato Models 3D Face Modeling

In addition to the digital models, a frontal photograph can be mapped over the external soft tissue that is captured by the CBCT scan and merged, based on common reference points. The digital models and the photograph appear in their correct anatomical position in relation to each other.



3D Soft Tissue Prediction

Based on proposed hard-tissue treatment, full 3D facial aesthetic simulations of orthodontic and surgical soft-tissue simulations can be created, thereby increasing case acceptance rates. Treatment simulation showing orthodontic tooth movement with the modeled teeth is now possible!



Traditional Stone Models

These orthodontic models demonstrate:

  • Biting relationships and tooth morphology
  • Symmetry of dental arches
  • Tooth positions and rotations

For those practitioners who require pre-treatment and post-treatment orthodontic diagnostic models of their patients, we can provide articular mounted (SAM) or traditional (orthodontic trimmed) models. All of our models are detailed, soaped, polished, and labeled.



Digital Photography

Digital Intraoral and Facial Photography clearly shows:

  • Facial balance and symmetries
  • Lip smile line
  • Facial height
  • The patient’s occlusion; whether they have an overbite or overjet and if there are problems related to the occlusion that will need to be addressed
  • Soft tissue problems, including inflammation and recession
  • Fractures on the dentition
  • Color irregularities

Intraoral and Facial photography is an important tool to the orthodontist in the treatment planning process and is considered to be an accurate record of the condition of the dentition and soft tissues.

Frequently Asked Questions

The staff of E.D.I. consists of a Medical X-ray Technologist, Registered Dental Assistants Level II, Oral and Maxillofacial Radiologists, and Digital Imaging Specialists who are dedicated to providing consistent, high-quality records to our referring practitioners. Our facility is equipped with the latest in state-of-the-art imaging and photographic equipment. Sending your patients to us for complete diagnostic records allows more efficient use of your staff’s time.

According to Intrumentarium, the manufacturers of the OC200 Pan/Ceph machine that we use here at EDI, the exposure for all three images is approximately 29 μSv,.

It is important to know that exposure levels vary dependant on the CBCT machine being used. According to Imaging Sciences, the manufacturer of our i-CAT CBCT scanner, the standard Digital Orthodontic CBCT protocol that we use at EDI is a 4.8 second, 0.3 voxel scan with an exposure level of approximately 37 μSv. This protocol is used when there is no specific area of concern indicated for additional evaluation by our Oral & Maxillofacial Radiologists.

Our standard Digital Orthodontic Records acquired with CBCT, when there is no specific area of concern indicated on the referral, includes all of the following:

  • CBCT Scan
  • Pathology Screening of the scan by our Oral & Maxillofacial Radiologist

Printed images of the following:

  • Panoramic
  • Lateral Ceph with Ceph analysis
  • Models
  • Intraoral and extraoral photo montage
  • Free 3D viewing software including all images named above as well as TMJ and airway images.
  • 3D promotional patient video and more!

Our standard Orthodontic Records, including stone models, when there is no specific area of concern indicated on the referral, includes all of the following:

    • Panoramic
    • Lateral Ceph with Ceph analysis
    • Intraoral and extraoral photo montage

When referring to EDI for Digital Orthodontic Records, a specific area of concern may include an impaction or pathology, a TMJ issue, or any other anatomical anomaly that requires a more detailed interpretation and additional images. The scan size would remain the same, while the resolution of the scan would be increased in order to clearly visualize the area of concern. There would be a fee increase to cover the additional work.
