  • Modifying Clear Aligner Protocol for Pre-prosthetic Success

    In this course we will review and discuss Invisalign clear aligners and note how to effectively move teeth to prepare for prosthetic restorations. We will pay particular attention to staging of movements and the placement of supporting attachments to make results more predictable. Mechanics of bite opening, bite closure, space opening and space closure will be outlined.

    • - Review an Invisalign case to determine the programmed tooth movement
    • - Compare traditional and optimized attachments needed to support movements
    • - Discover how to better understand movement sequencing and staging
    • - Assess treatment progress to know when a treatment revision is advisable
    • - Evaluate clinical protocols for bite opening, bite deepening, space opening and space reduction/closure
