Dr. Garino will share with the audience his protocol for Class II first with a distalization approach with the use of specific attachments, then he will explain when he is using the virtual bite jump effect as strategy in the virtual planning.
Moreover, he will explain when and how he use a hybrid approach with the Motion appliance when he is using aligners and, last but not least, he will introduce through clinical cases in progress the most recent innovation represented by the use of the mandibular advancement feature, a revolutionary tool in aligner treatments in severe Class II /I in growing patients.
The speaker will highlight the importance of the case selection, which are the main software and clinical tools to use in managing Class II cases with Invisalign technique, including the current possibilities and limitations.
- New tools to improve efficiency in Class II treatments with Invisalign
- Treatments with aligners became in the last years more and more frequent in the daily practice not only in adult patients but also in teenagers. One of the main goals is to keep treatment timing as efficient as possible and this is based on the current Invisalign possibilities, patient compliance and also the presence of new technologies and techniques which can optimized the treatment timing both in adults and teenagers.
Regarding techniques, Dr. Garino will share his approach which can be done purely with Invisalign and in other situations combined with the Motion appliance. About technologies, he will share his protocols in managing class II in combination either with vibrating devices or with photobiomodulation and share the feedback he found both clinically and by patients.
Last but not least Dr. Garino will share his 5 year experience with intraoral scanning with iTero scanner, from 2.5 until Element, and the main factors which can improve efficiency in the orthodontic practice.
Message from Dr. Kenji Ojima to Dr. Francesco Garino Introduction
I met Francesco Garino for the first time in 2010 when I attended the Invisalign 10-year anniversary celebration in Italy at which he was the keynote speaker. His presentation was truly impressive. He was one of the first doctors to fully implement the iTero scanning system. He had and has published many papers on iTero scanning. I had been under the impression that dental models could not be done digitally. Using iTero however,
Dr. Garino showed me and the rest of the world that digital model’s from scans could be used to do Invisalign treatment planning, ushering in a new digital age in orthodontics. After watching his presentations in 2011 and 2012 I insisted that he come share his wisdom in Japan.
Since his participation in the JAAO in 2016, I’ve had many opportunities to collaborate with him
and have been amazed at the depth of his orthodontic tool box. He is always thinking about how to streamline and simplify Invisalign treatments and his presentations are always informative.
[2017 JAAO Presentation]
Dr. Garino’s presentation this year is going to be great. He will be talking about treating Class II cases in Teenagers and specifically will talk about how to use hybrid appliances, treatments beyond Invisalign alone, to simplify and increase the effectiveness of Invisalign treatments. He will talk about not only the strengths, but the limitations of Invisalign treatments, and how to use other appliances to fill in gaps in effectiveness. I sincerely hope a large number of doctors come to learn from his masterful approach.
