What is DSD LOWER?
After a facially-driven analysis, we perform a smile design (wax-up) of the lower arch for your patient. This product is normally an addition to the DSD Upper, once you realize that some procedures on the lower arch will also be needed. It is, as well as the DSD Upper, a starting point that can be used to guide any type of treatment plan. This design includes 2 STL files: the Lower Smile Design over the original model (Pre-treatment) and the Lower Smile Design with the digitally reduced model (Post-treatment). Normally we don’t send the Motivational Mockup file for the lower, unless you ask us to do so. These STL files can be printed by our DSD Lab and sent to your office, or you can print them yourself (or with a local lab).
