Title

Diagnosis and Treatment in the Digital Age

Abstract

During the last century, tremendous advances have been made in the diagnosis and treatment of complex developmental and acquired defects of the face and mouth. Advances in imaging, surgery, bone grafting, implant design and restorative techniques have created a unique and exciting opportunity to use digital imaging and computer-aided design techniques to improve the quality of care and reduce costs. A historical review of diagnostic and treatment techniques will help illustrate the potential of the digital design process. Authors: Stephen M. Schmitt, Ming C. Leu (TelMed Technologies).
