The general trend in the orthodontic practice is to become digital in many aspects. Since 1980s, digital photographs have been available and they play a principal role in the orthodontic p...
Evaluation of the Effects of Flat and Modified Inclined Fixed Anterior Bite Planes on Mandibular Position in Growing Females With Skeletal Class 2 Malocclusion Due to Mandibular Deficiency and Deep Bite
This study will be conducted to see if unlocking mandible from deep bite in growing females by flat fixed anterior bite plane will change mandibular position in skeletal mandibular deficie...
This study is to compare the diagnostic accuracy of digital models obtained via 10 digitization techniques to the reference standard of orthodontic plaster model through dental measuremnet...

Process for making, building or constructing a physical object from a three-dimensional digital model by laying down many successive thin layers of building material.
A rapid, low-dose, digital imaging system using a small intraoral sensor instead of radiographic film, an intensifying screen, and a charge-coupled device. It presents the possibility of reduced patient exposure and minimal distortion, although resolution and latitude are inferior to standard dental radiography. A receiver is placed in the mouth, routing signals to a computer which images the signals on a screen or in print. It includes digitizing from x-ray film or any other detector.

A sensory branch of the MANDIBULAR NERVE, which is part of the trigeminal (5th cranial) nerve. The lingual nerve carries general afferent fibers from the anterior two-thirds of the tongue, the floor of the mouth, and the mandibular gingivae.
A detailed review and evaluation of selected clinical records by qualified professional personnel for evaluating quality of dental care.
