AS22LDS52 - Remote Orthodontics in 2022 & Beyond using Innovative Technology & Aligner Therapy

‐ May 23, 2022 2:15pm

Credits: None available.

Traditionally, orthodontics has involved frequent face to face interaction with patients. However, the outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) effectively shut down many offices for a period of time. Orthodontists have been forced to find creative ways to deliver quality care for orthodontic patients who are reluctant to come into the office. Teleorthodontics offers an innovative solution to resume orthodontic practice during the pandemic and into the future using digital technologies and clear aligners.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss how telehealth platforms can help new and existing orthodontic patients recieve the care they need through virtual examinations, observations, and recalls.
  • Understand how the concept of long-distance orthodontics has evolved into a segment called remote orthodontics, which involves using CAD/CAM technology, aligner treatment, and remote dental monitoring systems to deliver quality care with fewer appointments and less-invasive treatment.
  • Examine the difference between supervised and unsupervised teleorthodontics.
