Taking advantage of the digital age – Dr Paolo Manzo – Excellere 2019Featured Products Promotional Features
Posted by: The Probe 14th April 2019
Digital technologies have completely transformed modern dentistry. Not only have these systems aided and encouraged better outcomes, more precise workflows and swifter results, but they have also made significant differences to patients and professionals alike in terms of comfort and ease of use.
In the current orthodontic arena, a fully digital workflow has become a necessity rather than a luxury. These systems play a key role in every step of the orthodontic journey, including the diagnostic process, treatment planning, digital set ups and, in many cases, customised appliance manufacturing. As such, it is necessary for professionals to take advantage of these systems and reap the full benefit.
Dr Paolo Manzo, a leading orthodontist from Italy, will be presenting his thoughts on digital systems and how they can benefit both patients and professionals in a session at Excellere 2019, hosted by 3M Oral Care.
Entitled “Integrated treatment planning in the Digital Age” this session is a perfect opportunity for orthodontists and postgraduates to consider all the advantages of digital technologies.
A diagnostic evolution
Dr Paolo Manzo says:
“In my session at Excellere 2019, I really want to highlight the importance of working with digital technologies and how they can benefit clinicians throughout every stage of treatment. Before the introduction of technologies such as CBCT machines we had to rely on 2D images during the diagnostic process. The introduction of 3D imaging has revolutionised treatment in many ways and now professionals can use these solutions to improve diagnosis and outcomes.
“Digital technology is so much more than just a diagnostic tool, and by implementing it into workflows we can gain better insight into the relationship between crowns and roots, as well as plan and execute interdisciplinary treatments. We can enhance outcomes with guided periodontal regeneration and indirect and direct aesthetics. Additionally, one of the most interesting points is the chance to create virtual setups and plan accurate bracket placement through indirect bonding.”
Why digital makes a difference
Dr Paolo Manzo will be presenting how digital technologies have helped to encourage reliable outcomes.
“I want to show how to work with digital technologies and the effect this can have on final results, focusing also on the interdisciplinary approach.
“Reliability in treatment is so important and by using digital technologies we can really improve the predictability of treatment.
“What I want people to take away from my session is as follows. Firstly, I want people to learn how to use digital technologies in a patient-friendly and approachable way. Secondly, I want to make it clear that these technologies are a huge asset in every stage of treatment. Lastly, I really want to help people realise how efficient these systems are from start to finish, even in daily tasks.”

Dr Paolo Manzo adds:
“Excellere 2019 is going to be a very exciting event and I’m honoured to be there. London will be a new environment for me, and I’m looking forward to hearing a wide range of perspectives from those attending and the other speakers.”
