Description

Whether in the sandbox or on the tee, a golfer knows which club to select from their bag. In this battle of the clasts vs. the blasts, our experts will investigate which treatment choice to select out of the bag when considering ortho for a patient. With technological advances, seamless digital workflow, and patient acceptance, clear aligners are quickly becoming the treatment of choice. However, fixed appliances offer a truly comprehensive approach to esthetic and functional design. Understanding types of tooth movements and occlusal schemes allows the clinician to align the right ortho option with the right dilemma, without sacrificing overall care.

Side 1: Fixed appliances have been and will continue to be the cornerstone of orthodontic therapy. The goal of this presentation is to highlight the power, strength, precision and flexibility of fixed appliances.

Side 2: Clear aligner technology and capabilities continue to rapidly advance. It can be challenging to grasp exactly what the capabilities of clear aligners are and how to use them to benefit patients in day-to-day practice. The effectiveness of clear aligners in a variety of clinical scenarios will be clearly substantiated.

Upon completion of this session, attendees should be able to:

  • Learn the types of movements that require fixed appliances.
  • Understand the types of tooth movements and occlusal schemes in which clear aligners are effective.
  • Please note: Study Club events are only open to Central Carolina Dental Continuum members.
