In this course, doctors will learn how clear aligners move teeth, and learn how to treat orthodontic patients with clear aligners with proper diagnosis and treatment planning. They will learn how to program that treatment plan into a software program based on principles of biomechanics, anchorage and aesthetic considerations. Case selection will be emphasized and this will be illustrated with a wide range of clinical cases ranging from simple pre-restorative orthodontic treatment to teen treatment, early interceptive treatment and complex malocclusions.
