Tooth Movement Software

Available in a range from fully manual to fully automated, the purpose of tooth movement software is to produce a printable model. There are three steps in using tooth movement software including preparing the model, segmenting teeth (from each other and from the gingiva) and moving teeth which also includes placing attachment and staging aligners. The last step is exporting the stl file so a model can be printed.
