The American Board of Orthodontist (ABO) will take digital files with any given case, however, they still require that the initial and the final models are in stone. The board, of course, has a various stringent set of rules and measurements that need to be followed for this particular models. That’s where OrthoDenco helps aspiring orthodontists to achieve that goal.
These measurements need to be very precise in terms of the angles and the height of these models and also the proportions between the base of the model and the anatomy of the patient. Those are the considerations we need to have in term of the guidelines, but at the same time we need to have in mind the discrepancies that were treated with orthodontic treatment so that they’re fully showcased on that model which is what allows to the orthodontist to become certified because they need to pretty much achieve a certain number of points with each treatment they present.
In essences in ABO models not only need to comply with the measurement and proportion requirements set forth by the ABO but at the same time need to fully showcase the level of discrepancy treated with braces so that they can give the orthodontist full points when undergoing accreditation.
That’s why these are so important and so critical for the accreditation itself and that’s why we’re also proud to be able to offer this service to people that want to become board certified.
