Course Description:

The course will be broken into two parts. The first part will talk about moving teeth with plastic and the strategies to get around the hurdles typically associated with aligner therapy.  The second part will be hands-on exercised that will reinforce these lessons. Participants may bring cases from their private practice for discussion and treatment planning purpose. There will be a thorough discussion on technology to gain a full understanding of how scanning and 3D printing work. We will also discuss some of the issues that now plague dentists as a result of the direct-to-the-consumer business model.  We will thoroughly cover how a digital workflow affects your office. Most importantly, we will discuss and demonstrate a full end-to-end solution where we will build an entire case of aligners to manage specific malocclusion issues.

Course Objectives:

The participant will learn:

1. Understand the digital workflow from consult to delivery.
2. 3D printing will be explained and demonstrated.
3. The economics of inhouse printing will be discussed.
4. Learn how to plan, design and hand build an Essix retainer
5. Learn an end-to-end solution for delivering inhouse clear aligners.
6. Learn how to design and build a digital pontic to hide an implant site while it heals.
7. Learn how to fabricate a simple H I T retainer to close an anterior diastema.
8. Doctors may bring private cases to treatment plan, design and build aligners.
