Abstract

This clinical case outlines a comprehensive digital workflow for a minimally invasive multidisciplinary treatment. The process utilizes one open-source software for digital wax-up and one low-cost software to address esthetic concerns related to teeth misalignment. The patient’s function was stabilized with a digitally made occlusal splint. The application of the described digital workflow technique, incorporating open-source, low-cost, and closed software, played a pivotal role in attaining a straightforward and predictable outcome with minimally invasive treatment. Furthermore, the continual evolution of technology contributes to the growing precision of dental procedures. The presented digital workflow helped formulate a predictable treatment plan, replicate a diagnostic digital wax-up, and achieve precise teeth alignment. This approach satisfactorily addressed the patient’s esthetic concerns, providing an outstanding approximation of the definitive result.
