The update brings patient communication applications to the Medit Ortho Simulation, Smile Design, and Compare applications. 

Medit announced an update to its Medit Link software with the release of patient communication applications. 

The new free applications reportedly focus on patient communication, providing visualizations of potential results to help the patient understand their treatment options and potential outcomes. 

Medit Ortho Simulation can be used to demonstrate multiple potential tooth movement scenarios to help the patient visualize a future smile. Meanwhile, Medit Smile Design takes the patient’s future smile and places it in their image, so they can see what digital dentistry can do for them, while Medit Compare automatically aligns two sets of scan data, allowing for comparison. 

With the Medit Link 2.3 update, users can ignore selected colors, such as the color of one’s gloves. The exact colors to be ignored can be chosen using the scanner. According to the company, this reduces the number of artifacts introduced by a clinician’s gloves during retraction, shortening the time needed to conduct a scan.
