Simple Strategies for Advanced Results with Clear Aligners

Simple Strategies for Advanced Results with Clear Aligners

Credits: None available.

Dr. Adam Goodman discusses Simple Strategies for Advanced Results with Clear Aligners (1.25 CE). Dr. Goodman has been recognized for his measured approach towards aligner treatment. He designs treatment around the strengths of clear aligners but also respects their inherent limitations. Despite his vast experience with aligners, having treated over 4500 Invisalign treatments, he has gained credibility in certain circles by not subscribing to the often heard mantra that “every case” can be treated with clear aligners.

While some presentations focus on how to push the envelope with aligners, Dr. Goodman will focus on methods and techniques that will yield you effective and efficient results, case after case.

In just 60 minutes, every aspect of aligner treatment will be addressed. There will not be any lengthy case presentations, but rather, a myriad of accessible tips and pearls that can be immediately implemented into your practice. The webinar will avoid "getting into the weeds," it won't be a series of case presentations.

A MUST ATTEND, for both orthodontists who are apprehensive about using aligners in their practice beyond minor anterior treatments and also helpful for orthodontists with extensive aligner experience looking for simple tips and fresh insight.

Review of Advanced Treatment Protocols for Complex Class II & III Cases

Credits: None available.

Join Dr. Ana-Maria Cantor live from Spain, when she presents Review of Advanced Treatment Protocols for Complex Class II & III Cases (1.25 CE) on October 12 at 7:30 pm central time.

This webinar will show the protocol to treat non extraction class II and III complex cases. Dr. Cantor will also explain an efficient way with excellent aesthetic results to treat the class III cases with missing lateral incisors.

Through 10 cases treated consecutively with the same biomechanics she will explain how with a simple and non invasive way the correction of the sagital problem of the patient is done at the beginning of the treatment with the Carriere Motion appliance (CMA). With this, a class I relationship is obtained in the posterior segments, distalizing them in block from canine to molar. Once the maxilla or mandible has the saggital problem corrected, the treatment continues with passive self ligating braces until its finishing.

Learning Objectives:

  • Simplify the class III cases treatment with missing lateral incisors.
  • Reduce the total treatment time in aligners.
  • To treat class II and class III cases in a simple and non invasive way.

Current Applications & Approaches to the Surgery First Technique

Credits: None available.

The AAO and AAOMS team up to present Dr. Flavio Uribe and Dr. David Shafer to discuss Current Applications and Approaches to the Surgery First Technique (1.25 CE).  The surgery first approach started to gain interest in both the surgical and orthodontic communities approximately 10 years ago. Since then, the technique has evolved and been applied to almost every type of dentofacial deformity. Additionally, the orthodontic appliances have also changed to currently involve clear aligners as an option. This lecture will describe the current applications and approaches used in this technique with the pertinent sequencing.

Learning Objectives:

  •  Describe how the application of the surgery first approach to patients with obstructive sleep apnea.
  •  Understand the use and rationale of surgery-first for the aesthetic minded patient
  •  Describe the planning, sequence and scheme of integrating clear aligners with surgery first in orthognathic surgery.

Clinical Pearls in Micro-Implant (MI) Orthodontics: What I have learned in 18 years

Clinical Pearls in Micro-Implant (MI) Orthodontics: What I have learned in 18 years

Credits: None available.

Dr. Won Moon (1.25 CE) presents on Micro-Implants Clinical Pearls.  Micro-Implants (MI) became available in the early 2000’s in the US, and its utilization has grown exponentially. The application of MI in orthodontics can be extremely versatile. Often, we consider them as mere anchorage devices; however, creative use of MI can provide many treatment modalities which were not possible with the traditional orthodontic approach. As these new treatment protocols proliferated, the early adopters of MI orthodontics also had to face many new challenges as they ventured into the uncharted territories.

Through 18 years of Dr. Moon's journey in MI orthodontics, many new paradigms were established with clinically valuable pearls. This presentation will cover various aspects of utilizing MI in everyday practice, biomechanical advantages and challenges, clinical tips and troubleshooting, advanced application of MI, combining MI with aligners, and many more.

Avoiding Premolar Extractions with TAD-assisted Expansion Protocol

Avoiding Premolar Extractions with TAD-assisted Expansion Protocol

Credits: None available.

Dr. Marianna Evans (1.25 CE) for Avoiding premolar extractions with TAD-assisted expansion protocol

Conventional tooth-supported palatal expanders can at times produce unfavorable periodontal outcomes. The introduction of the temporary skeletal anchorage into rapid maxillary expansion appliances eliminates orthopedic forces applied directly to the teeth. In doing so, orthodontists can avoid adverse periodontal effects, achieve required skeletal maxillary expansion in non-growing patients without surgery and control skeletal and dental post-expansion movements in three dimensions.

Premolar extractions are often necessary in the situations of severe crowding with objectives to minimize periodontal attachment loss and optimize esthetics. This webinar will discuss TAD-assisted expansion protocol to allow periodontally acceptable non-extraction therapy.

Learning Objectives:

  • To discuss the maxillary and mandibular crowding - skeletal perspective.
  • To discuss periodontal perspective of addressing crowding with maxillary skeletal expansion versus premolar extraction therapy
  • To review extreme crowded cases treated with TAD-assisted expansion protocol - paradigm shift in orthodontics.

AAO 2021 Winter Conference - The GRAIL: Predictable Class II Correction with Aligner Therapy

AAO 2021 Winter Conference - The GRAIL: Predictable Class II Correction with Aligner Therapy

Credits: None available.

Class II correction with aligner therapy is difficult, but there is a misunderstanding as to why. It is not difficult to plan treatment and hand out aligners, it is difficult to overcome the psychological barriers to patients wearing elastics when they do not want their orthodontic treatment to show. This difficulty is compounded by the inability to identify in advance which patients will wear elastics from those who will not. This leaves the orthodontist struggling with a patient who will not allow treatment to be completed without fixing the overjet, but who is unwilling to wear elastics to make the correction. Aligner therapy can be made more predictable (and enjoyable) if this dynamic is recognized, appreciated and if we can find ways to work around the trap. This lecture will explain the underpinnings of the psychology around “loss aversion” and present a creative way to correct Class II malocclusions predictably with aligner therapy.

Learning Objectives:

  • Comprehend the concept of “loss aversion” and how it impacts patients motivated by dental esthetics.
  • Evaluate how loss aversion undermines the use of elastics with clear aligner therapy making Class II correction problematic and unpredictable.
  • Gain new clinical techniques and protocols that make correction of Class II malocclusions more predictable with clear aligner therapy.
