SEAN CARLSON - USA
Beyond Straight Teeth: Enhancing Orthodontic Treatment and Diagnosis Using 3D Technology.
Straight teeth are nice, but long healthy lives are better. Join Dr. Sean K. Carlson as he shares with you his journey from 2D to 3D. Learn how his new modern approach to orthodontics is focusing on not only great bites and smiles, but also on airway issues. You will soon understand how CBCT technology is giving orthodontists information that dramatically improves airway health, treatment efficiency, and patient communication. Learn from Dr. Carlson as he shares years of painful mistakes and practice-changing pearls that will help you make the transition to 3D. This game-changing presentation is sure to forever change the way you practice and see your patients.

Insights into Aligner biomechanics.
Using digital design in Clear Aligner Therapy (C.A.T.) has become increasingly popular. Yet, a major problem with using digital design is that not every time we get the desire result from the Clincheck design. Therefore, we need to combine our clinical experiences and look at the biomechanics we have learned. In my lecture, I will discuss in detail the biomechanics that will help us achieve a better design in C.A.T. Using my clinical cases and tips to solve the challenges frequently faced, including: In control tipping, considering counter moment to prevent from undesired crown tilting in space closing. In extrusion, using Hybrid Aligner-Wire Technique (H.A.W.T.) to achieve efficient extrusion. In torque control, utilizing force system design in clincheck to achieve good angulation of anterior teeth in bicuspid extraction cases. In distalization, combining existing techniques to prevent from row-boat effect. In occlusal settling, designing with biomechanics in view to achieve better occlusion. Digital design makes clinical practice more convenient. But it also brings new challenges for Drs. How to combine the clinical experiences with digital design in the key to success.

Teen Treatments in Aligner Orthodontics.
Since the introduction of Invisalign technology 1999 in America and in Germany in 2001, the system has been through continuous development and technological progress of the ClinCheck Software, but in particular significantly improved by the growing clinical experience and scientific knowledge. In addition to the original treatment indications, the spectrum has steadily expanded also through the introduction of the product Teen in 2008. With the use of the Invisalign Teen product and its features such as eruption compensators or the mandibular advancement tool, young patients can be treated already in the late erupting dentition and even in the early mixed dentition. With Invisalign Teen, it is possible to satisfy the young people’s desire for aesthetic treatment and give them the orthodontic appliances that fits the daily routine packed with sports, music and other activities, also helping to lower the risk of decalcification through optimal hygiene possibilities. The presentation will show an overview of teen treatments with the Invisalign System and combinations with other treatment options.

Keys for a perfect finish, Management of the Posterior Open bite.
Every technique has strengths and weaknesses that we need to master in order to get the most out of it. With the Invisalign technique there are some collateral effects that end up in a posterior open bite at the end of some of our treatments. Some causes are: thickness of the aligner, incomplete ClinCheck Plan, premature anterior contacts, lack of space or the “bowing effect”. Each collateral effect has a proper solution to overcome the downside and provide a great finish.

Asymmetries and Aligners: from digital planning to treatment mechanics.
Clear aligners are now successfully used in many complex cases and asymmetrical malocclusions are between the most challenging to manage in terms of treatment biomechanics. This success mainly comes from the incredible improvements of the ClinCheck Pro software, which gives to the clinician the possibility to digitally plan every aspect of our treatments in advance. This presentation will show how to take advantage of this aspect to precisely plan asymmetrical biomechanics and then how to apply the desired orthodontic forces through aligners and different auxiliaries. The combination of all these features gives great control during the treatment and makes aligner orthodontics ideal to successfully treat asymmetrical malocclusions, because less movement of the teeth means also less risk, less discomfort for the patient and greater predictability.

How to stay ahead of the game with DSD & Aligners.
Technology is changing our industry creating a disruptive moment full of opportunities and challenges. Incorporating technology to better diagnose, design, plan, motivate and perform is paramount to succeed in the new, extremely competitive, dental market that is forming ahead of us. Plan the investments, create key partnerships, overcome the learning curve and get the team on board are some of the obstacles to differentiate ourselves, become a modern Orofacial clinic and create value towards our community.
