Digital Ideal Archwire Design (DIAD) in lingual orthodontics: technique update


The objective of this study was to describe the update of an ideal arch development protocol, through non-dental software, for cases treated with lingual orthodontics, so that the professional can develop arches that provide a pad thin enough to contain the individualization of bracket prescriptions and regularization of the lingual surface of the teeth, regardless of the shape of the arch used - individual arch, straight, mushroom, Christmas or mixed -, providing more comfortable, biological treatments with better mechanical control.
