How to Smile Big: 3D Scanned Retainers

"How’s it going? We’re over here with another How To Smile Big with Dr. Eric Leber. We're talking about retainers today. So Dylan here, say hi."

"Hi."

"Got his braces off last week, and we give them these nice diplomas so before and after’s which is cool because you couldn’t see his lower teeth. And um then we take an x-ray which you can see the roots are healthy and parallel. But one of the big things I wanted to show is what we’re doing now at Leber Ortho is taking scans of his mouth and a 3-D printer is making a replica of his teeth. So we’re going to give this to Dillon. So if he ever loses his retainer, this is really cool, he can use this to make a new retainer. So the traditional way is we take an impression, it’s made up of stone, that gets completely destroyed, there’s no replica of how strait his teeth were the day we got them off. So pop out your retainer Dillon and kinda show them what they look like, the retainer are pretty much the same as a traditional retainer. He just got them so he'll get used to doing that, so it's a clear invisalign type, and but this a 3-D printer."​
