What will he talk about
“Clear Aligners – A great treatment option for your patients and your practice”
The introduction of clear aligners has changed Orthodontics. The possibility to deliver clear treatments for misaligned teeth made orthodontic treatments attractive for the wide group of patients not willing to wear braces. Dental practices that deliver clear aligner treatments are able to offer a great treatment option for their patients.
Clear aligners, as any orthodontic appliance, should be used according to orthodontic diagnosis and treatment concepts.
The lecture will focus on the integration of clear aligners in the dental practice, finding the correct indications for this treatment approach in conjunction with other restorative or aesthetic treatments. Proper case selection will be discussed for the general practitioners and for the orthodontists.
