Date: February 5, 2020

Time: 07:30PM - 08:45PM

You must be registered to participate!

Dr. William Dayan (1.25 CE) will discuss the need of any comprehensive orthodontic plan to include control of the curve of spee at the same time as the vertical dimension of the patient.  Learn how to customize the opposing curve of spee changes in the upper and lower arches of aligner treatments. Learn how to use the curve of spee changes in aligner treatments to both open deepbite cases, and close openbite cases.

Learning Objectives:

  • Customize appropriate intrusions and extrusions to change the curve of spee in different malocclusions.
  • Choose the appropriate anchorage teeth and attachments to support changes desired.
  • Explain how to open or close the vertical dimension of patients with aligner orthodontics.
  • Explain how to introduce inter-arch elastics to add more control to curve of spee customizations.
