3D-Technology and 3D-Applications
in Orthodontics: N. Panavi
The inaugural ICCO Study Club will be led by Dr Nearchos C. Panayi who is an orthodontist in Limassol (Cyprus) and currently a PhD student at the University of Athens (Greece). He studied dentistry at Athens Dental School (1992-1997) and orthodontics at Tel Aviv University (1998-2001) before setting up his private practice. This has since grown into two fully digitalised orthodontic practices in Limassol and Larnaca.
His passion for digitalisation encouraged him to use it consistently in orthodontics. A fan of in-house 3D design and printing, Dr N. C. Panayi has helped develop concepts and methods to transform traditional orthodontics into a fully individualised, digital discipline. He is the inventor of the orthodontic CAD software "UBrackets" for in-house design of patient-specific fixed orthodontic appliances. And he introduced the use of general purpose CAD software in orthodontics for the design of orthodontic appliances. He also conducts research in the field of direct aligner printing.
