Dr. Neil Warshawsky is the founder and owner of Get It Straight Orthodontics, a leading-edge orthodontic practice in the Chicago area. A board certified orthodontic specialist since 1992, he has over 15 years of experience with cleft palate and craniofacial cases, and lends his support to all of the craniofacial teams in and around the greater Chicago area. His practice uses state-of-the-art orthodontic treatments to deliver healthy, aesthetic results, and works with children from as young as two weeks old to grown adults who wish to correct lifelong malocclusions. A strong proponent of customized lingual solutions, Dr. Warshawsky has been using the Invisalign™ alignment system since 1999, and has twice been in the Century Club, which represents the top 100 Invisalign™ practices worldwide. The high volume of esthetically based treatment with Invisalign™ quickly brought to light Aligner treatment limits. Dr. Warshawsky sought out a better esthetic alternative and was one of the first orthodontists outside of Europe to begin using the 3M Unitek Incognito™ Appliance System in 2003. Since then his practice has become one of largest volume users of Incognito™ in North and South America. Dr. Warshawsky is a nationally recognized speaker who has been featured on television interviews on ABC and Fox news programs. He regularly speaks to graduate students, including those of his Alma mater at the University of Illinois. He also lectures on clear aligner therapy, and is an instructor for Raintree Essix on the MTM minor tooth movement clear aligner system. In addition, he is in the speakers bureau for the Academy of General Dentistry, where he lectures on reconstructive orthodontics as a part of multidisciplinary oral motor rehabilitation and the symbiotic relationship between orthodontics and periodontics. An accomplished author, Dr. Warshawsky has published more than 13 journal articles and book reviews in 15 years. He has been interviewed in numerous newspapers and magazines, has contributed to a variety of national and international dental publications, and has given dozens of presentations to dental groups across the country. Dr. Warshawsky received his D.D.S., M.S. and Certificate of Orthodontics from the University of Illinois at Chicago and is a member of the World Federation of Orthodontics.
This course will be presented in 3 parts to help participants understand the basics of what comprises orthodontic issues and how to spot them in our patient population. We will then focus on correcting mild-to-moderate malocclusions using clear aligner therapy. Diagnosing, planning, and designing clear aligner therapy takes a lot of practice. This course will focus on a basic systematic approach, which will give the attendees a solid foundation on the 6 different types of movement that are available using clear aligners. Once the problem is understood, building the aligners will be discussed and implemented. For simple cases, a single Essix style retainer may solve singular issues. Mild malocclusions and simple relapse can be staged to resolve the problem appropriately. For mild and more involved issues, the key to success in implementing this type of approach will be to design and setup a digital workflow within your office. Once you can “talk” digital, working digitally becomes easier. Our course will focus on how to set up a digital work flow. Vendors from reputable industry leaders will be associated with our course to help you start your digital journey. There will be a significant hands-on section where you will build an Essix style retainer and have the opportunity to build more involved cases as well. Participants are encouraged to bring cases to design and treatment plan.
Each Participant will:
• Understand the digital workflow from consult to delivery
• Learn how to plan, design, and build an Essix retainer
• Learn an end-to-end solution for delivering in-house clear aligners.
• Build full cases using SureSmile® from Dentsply
• Learn how to design and build a digital pontic to hide an implant site while it heals
Doctors should bring their cases to treatment plan, design and build aligners
Please bring photographs, radiographs, models and relevant dental, medical and social histories to discuss your cases with the instructor and the class
