＜Digital Revolution in Aligner Orthodontics: Biomechanical Principles Remain Unchanged＞
The specialty of orthodontics is experiencing a rapid and positive evolution, or rather a revolution thanks to the digital advancement in recent years. With digitization and superior physical properties of dental/orthodontic materials, our understanding and application of basic biomechanical principles remain the “secret sauce” to attaining successful orthodontic results, all the while improving patient and doctor experience. Dr. Daher will review biomechanics as it applies to aligner orthodontic treatment and its application for an impeccable finish.
＜Deep Bite: The Vertical Challenge＞
- Managing the vertical dimension during orthodontic treatment remains a challenge to the
treating orthodontist, despite the many advances in techniques and appliances being used.
Clear aligner therapy aids in opening up deep bite malocclusions with consistency, mostly due
to the occlusal coverage by the aligners. Dr. Daher will show clinical cases and will share tips
and techniques to help use the Invisalign system more effectively.
