Kinetics: DSD for Orthodontic Treatment

A simple and efficient concept that uses DSD to guide the orthodontic treatment. Long story short, it allows the transfer of 2D information ( videos and pictures ) into 3D information ( orthodontic set-up ), and 3D information into kinetic information ( guided tooth movement ).

Kinetics concept works for any orthodontic system. Works for bucal braces, lingual braces, or aligners. No matter what system you use, this concept integrates facially-driven esthetics in your workflow. It will give you more precision and because of the increased accuracy, it will shorten your treatment time. It's an ideal tool for complex ortho-restorative cases. 

Main topics:

  • The digital clone : universal documentation protocol ( prostho / ortho )
  • Functional considerations
  • Transferring DSD 2D information to the 3D Setup
  • Transferring DSD to kinetic information
  • Follow up and Quality control protocol during treatment
  • Digital orthodontic workflow
  • Treatment sequencing in multidisciplinary cases.
  • Brackets vs Lingual vs Aligners. Indications for each system.
  • Orthognatic integration
  • Synergies with other digital systems

Course designed for:  orthodontists, non-specialists & multidisciplinary teams

Analog or Digital

Kinetics concept works for both analogue workflow with cast models and traditional orthodontic set-ups  and fully digital workflow with digital set-up and 3D printed models.


  • DSD step by step
  • Transfer to analogue / digital set-up
  • Indirect application
