EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES & GOALS
There are many new techniques introduced to orthodontics over the past several years. This presentation will review these techniques and discuss how pre prosthetic orthodontics can enhance your restorative results, how TAD's and Lasers are orthodontic game changers, how improvements in Invisalign and Invisalign teen are helping us treat more consistently while expanding the scope of more complicated treatment plans, how using 3D Invisalign controls can give you more effective and predictable ClinChecks, how forced eruption can assist in providing better esthetics, how to treat congenitally missing lateral incisors, and what types of retention protocols are necessary to stabilize our results. Other new technology such as Acceledent and Propel are helping us finish our orthodontic cases faster than ever before, accelerating many cases to completion in less than a year. We will discuss how all of these modalities have improved the treatment of our patients, have enhanced their orthodontic experience, expanded our treatment options, and made it easier to restore patients while providing them with outstanding outcomes.
Dr. Luccarelli will be utilizing a PowerPoint presentation, educational materials, and will provide a question and answer session at the end of the presentation.
