NEW YORK—3D Predict, an international software developer and manufacturer of dental aligners based on artificial intelligence (AI) technology, is launching in the U.S. with a new headquarters in New York. The company's AI software produces highly precise 3D models of the smile including the crowns, bone and roots. 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.
3D Predict uses root and bone analysis for greater predictability to treatment. The company provides information to clinicians about potential treatment obstacles, such as root collision, and shows how roots will move during treatment, allowing doctors to formulate a more predictable and safe treatment plan. The clinician is able to analyze the tooth as a whole and make a more effective treatment plan, preventing at least five extra patient visits due to reduction in corrections.
“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 boosts effectiveness, reduces the number of corrections by 50% 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 Dr. Maria Sokolina, DDS, who practices in NY and NJ, “3D Predict gives us meticulous detail using data that allows doctors to analyze the tooth as a whole yielding better outcomes for the patient.”
