In complex dental treatments, a preliminary virtual plan (VP) can minimise the probability of errors and increase the predictability of the achieved result. Digital technologies and artificial intelligence open more opportunities for such planning, as they can be applied at the early stages of clinical examination to develop a simultaneous VP of all stages of treatment. The present clinical case describes a one-stage entire VP combining all the stages of treatment: gnathological, orthodontic, and prosthetic rehabilitation, until the final result. This approach avoids the accumulation errors associated with multistage VP, in which one stage of planning follows the end of a previous stage. One-step VP also allows demonstrating to the patients the expected results of the restoration, which increases their motivation to initiate the treatment.

Abstract

In complex dental treatments, a preliminary virtual plan (VP) can minimise the probability of errors and increase the predictability of the achieved result. Digital technologies and artificial intelligence open more opportunities for such planning, as they can be applied at the early stages of clinical examination to develop a simultaneous VP of all stages of treatment. The present clinical case describes a one-stage entire VP combining all the stages of treatment: gnathological, orthodontic, and prosthetic rehabilitation, until the final result. This approach avoids the accumulation errors associated with multistage VP, in which one stage of planning follows the end of a previous stage. One-step VP also allows demonstrating to the patients the expected results of the restoration, which increases their motivation to initiate the treatment.
