Definition of STL Files.
IDEAL PRE-TREATMENT STL:
This is the Ideal design over the original untouched model (Pink model in the presentation). This is ideal for treatment planning, and also can be used as a prep guide, when the case can go directly to restorative treatment. If you print the model and make a silicone index, you can transfer this to the mouth with BisAcryl (like the MockUp), you will be able to identify where the teeth need to be reduced (they will be sticking out), so you can first reduce and level with the rest of the ideal mockup and then prep through the Ideal mockup using the depth burs.
IDEAL POST-TREATMENT STL:
It is the Ideal design over the original model, that is trimmed (reduced) on substrative areas (teeth and/or gingiva)- (blue model on the presentation). This is also ideal for treatment planning and can be used to make an immediate provisional after prep (when the case can go straight to the restorative treatment). You need to print the model and transfer this to the mouth with a silicone index and BisAcryl after finish your preps.
MOTIVATIONAL MOCK UP STL:
It is the Ideal design adapted more to the buccal over the original untouched model (Pink model on the presentation). This file is only for you to print the model and make the silicone index to be able to do the Motivational Mockup.
