Using the visual aligner to manually fine tune the automatic teeth alignment

Dental Pro automatically aligns teeth models to the corresponding face models.  However, in some cases further fine tuning is desired.
The new six-axis 3D teeth aligner allows you to visually fine tune the automatic alignment in in 0.2mm and 0.5 degree increments to accurately align the patient's 3D teeth model to the patients existing teeth.  

How to use:

  1. Launch Dental Pro
  2. Select All By Date on the Home Page
  3. Tap align in the upper right corner
  4. Select Jaw Alignment
  5. Pick your jaw and face models
  6. Tap Next
  7. Automatic alignment is performed. 
  8. Then tap the Adjust tab.  This will show the Teeth Model with the real teeth and 3D teeth models at the same time.  The Tools tab shows the normal smile with the lip line cut out which results in hiding the normal teeth. 
  9. While in the Adjust tab, the left axis adjusts the translation of the face model to the teeth.  You can make the translation adjustment in the X, Y or Z axis.  The right axis adjusts the rotation of the face model to the teeth model also in the X, Y or Z axis.
  10. Look at the center picture that shows a semi-transparent view of the 3D teeth model over the 2D (see screen shot below).  Use the translation and rotation +/- controls to get the 3D semi-transparent teeth model to line up exactly to the 2D teeth model underneath.  The picture is just the upper teeth.  That is all you need to adjust at the lower teeth will follow.  
  11. When done, you can Save and/or Export if you have a Dental Subscription. Check here for subscription information:
