Objective: Know the protocols and techniques to perform good panoramic, lateral and CBCT radiographs in order to make a good diagnosis by the orthodontist.
Practice: Students will be shown live how a CBCT is performed with the different fields of vision and the ideal protocols for a 3D orthodontic study.
Objective: Management of a photographic camera independently, controlling the necessary parameters to obtain orthodontic photographs with good quality for diagnosis. Students will learn the technique and clinical tips for taking intra and extraoral photographs, as well as the preparation of photographic templates.
Practice: Photography with a Reflex camera and a 100mm macro lens: Live session with external flashes and ring flash.
Goals: Learn to handle an intraoral scanner smoothly and accurately and minimize the time spent taking records.
Practice: intraoral scanning, tips to improve scanning efficiency. Export of files in different formats.
Goals: Know the different types of 3D printers, components and calibration of resins to obtain accurate models.
Practice: management of laminating software and printer calibration. It is recommended to attend with a laptop and a mouse.
