- This stage contains the settings for the simulation that includes defining form information, creating scenarios and segmenting the teeth.
- The overview section provides the space to create several scenario s of teeth movement. Adjust the form information for each of them to compare them at the next stages.
⚠︎ Additional tools for moving the position of each tooth are provided at the Advanced Adjustments stage.
(2) Form information
- Utilize the from information section to mark teeth as missing, plan for prosthesis or extraction for the selected scenario.
(3) Scan data
- Scan data section provides options to change tooth numbering in case the automatic segmentation is not made correctly by the program.
❏ Overview and creating scenarios
To visualize several possible simulation outcomes you can create up to three scenarios of teeth movement based on the entered form information: create several variations of the form information by changing the teeth planned for extraction or prosthesis.
- Press the Add button to add a scenario.
Auto simulation: turns on/off the auto simulation.
Add: adds a new scenario for each tooth movement scenario.
Rename: renames the selected scenario.
Clone: clones the selected scenario.
⚠︎ You cannot clone a scenario if there are more than three of them already in existence.
Delete: deletes the selected scenario.
- Edit the form for each of the scenarios.
- Once the simulation scenario is complete, click the Confirm button to proceed to the next stage.
The form on the left reflects the scan data and shows the missing teeth based on the automatic recognition by the program.
❏ Working on the form information
The form information on the left side shows recognized teeth from the scan data. When the "Pin It" feature located on the bottom of the form information is enabled, the selected teeth (#45, #46, #47 on the screenshot) are pinned during the simulation but adjustable on the advanced adjustment stage.
Mark the teeth for planned extraction or prosthesis on the form by clicking on that specific tooth.
- Click once to mark the tooth as planned for extraction.
- Click again to mark the tooth as planned for prostheses.
You cannot create a simulation when the tooth count for each arch is less than ten.
- In case a tooth is marked as missing even though it is not, click on the number of the tooth on the form, press Add button on the form.
The difference between planned extraction and the planned prosthesis is as the following:
❏ Teeth marking
➤ The program will automatically segment and mark teeth based on their type.
⚠︎ Use the teeth marking as a reference in case you will need to mark a tooth manually. Make sure that only tooth (and no soft tissues) is selected as shown in the image below.
- Tips on tooth area selection)
➤ Check teeth numbering on the scan data. It can be changed by clicking on any tooth on the scan data.
- In case a tooth is misnumbered, click on it on the scan data. The program will suggest one or two options for the numbering.
➤ Utilize the tools located on the right to select the correct area for the tooth.
- Use the Smart Tooth Selection function to mark the area in one click or by pressing and dragging the mouse to automatically expand the area selection. You can also mark the tooth using the brush.
Smart tooth selection: automatically selects the are of the tooth. Click, press, and drag the mouse on the tooth.
Brush selection: allows to select the area using a brush.
Brush deselection: allows deselecting the area using a brush.
Clear all selection: clears all selection.
Zoom fit to selection: zooms fit on the selected area.
➤ : Show/hide color effect on the teeth.
➤ : You can export all teeth tooth by tooth.
