VISION, an end-to-end aligner treatment planning software, now includes intuitive and comprehensive staging which includes automatic IPR, group movement, and full flexibility for the treatment strategy.
SoftSmile debuted the upgraded version of VISION, its AI-powered orthodontic software at the recent Greater New York Dental Meeting. The end-to-end treatment planning software, first introduced at the 2020 American Association of Orthodontists Annual Meeting, provides orthodontists with the ability to create aligner treatment plans in-house which are then further developed using advanced 3D printing technologies, according to the company.
Among the new upgrades are intuitive and comprehensive staging which includes automatic IPR, group movement, and full flexibility for the treatment strategy; an automated treatment planner based on actual real-time stress calculation and biomechanics principles; and web viewer, editor, and distributed managing system facilitating cooperation among doctors, technicians, manufacturers, and patients. In addition, postprocessing now includes automated cutting lines generation. Self-learning and automated segmentation is also included in this latest version.
According to the company, in the last year, SoftSmile was granted over 25 new US patents. Pending FDA 510(k) premarket notification, SoftSmile says it is focused on working with established aligners manufacturers and has secured partnerships with several leading dental companies. The next stage will be working directly with doctors, the company adds.
“We are excited to introduce to the market all our latest innovations that we’ve implemented in VISION. The pandemic slowed our go-to-market plans, so we decided to focus on additional improvements. Today, VISION is the best digital solution for manufacturers and doctors, it encompasses all the features that doctors have long wished for and creates a friendly and intuitive environment for aligners treatment planning,” said Khamzat Asabaev, founder and CEO. “The future of orthodontics is bright and the SoftSmile team is working tirelessly to make aligner treatments affordable, to give doctors more flexibility in choosing the strategy and deliver more beautiful smiles to the world.”
