Passive self-ligation has expanded the boundaries of what was previously considered predictable orthodontic treatment. Transverse arch development through arch wires now provide stable nonextraction results due to mechanical advantages delivered by lighter forces coupled with decreased frictional resistance and specific appliance design. Numerous clinical cases illustrating correction of dental and skeletal malocclusions will be provided that highlight the benefits of following the prescribed mechanics designed for optimal utilization of passive self-ligation.
The attendee will have an understanding of the proper wire progression to successfully treat cases with the damon System of passive self-ligation.
The attendee will have an understanding of the newest technological advances utilizing the damon System of passive self-ligation and how to implement them into their practices.
The attendee will observe case progression from inception through completion via serial photographic documentation of unusual cases treated with the damon System of passive self-ligation.
