The medical technology company 3D Predict uses its proprietary artificial intelligence software to produce 3D models to design clear aligners.
3D Predict, the international software developer and manufacturer of clear aligners based on artificial intelligence (AI) technology, is launching in the United States with a new headquarters in New York. The medical technology company has worked globally building recognition for its one-of-a-kind AI software that reportedly produces highly precise 3D models of the smile including the crowns, bone, and roots. These models are then used to design clear aligners.
According to the company, 3D Predict aligners prevent tooth movements that are anatomically impossible resulting in 50% fewer teeth alignment corrections and a 30% reduction in treatment time. 3D Predict received FDA clearance in February.
“As a result of today’s COVID restrictions, currently more and more doctors are making their choice in favor of clear aligner therapy versus braces. Treatment using clear aligners requires less frequent and shorter consultations with less manual procedures, so it is safer and more convenient for doctors and patients in the current environment,” said Marina Domracheva, MD, founder and CEO of 3D Predict.
According to the company, it uses root and bone analysis for greater predictability in treatment, providing information to orthodontists about potential treatment obstacles, such as root collision. By showing them how roots will move during treatment, orthodontists are able to formulate a more predictable and safe treatment plan.
“The growing orthodontics market is driving an even greater demand for more effective treatment models,” added Domracheva. “We saw a way to combine clinical experience and cutting-edge technology to equip orthodontists with a dental device to treat even the most complex cases with greater precision and efficiency.”
3D Predict Aligners are designed on AI technology which, according to the company, boosts effectiveness, and reduces the number of corrections by half and associated chair time by 30%. This allows doctors to increase their margin and save time for new patients.
“The application of technology in aligners equips doctors with a depth of information about the tooth that was previously not available,” says Maria Sokolina, DDS, who practices in New York and New Jersey. “3D Predict gives us meticulous detail using data that allows doctors to analyze the tooth as a whole yielding better outcomes for the patient.”
