This course is designed for doctors wanting to incorporate fixed straight wire orthodontics into their practice. Accurate bracket placement and how this affects tooth movement will be reviewed during the hands- on portion of this program. Even doctors who have completed multiple fixed appliance cases will benefit from the information presented during this program. How to use auxiliary appliances to create space and multiple wire bending techniques will also be demonstrated.
Upon completion of this course the participant will be able to:
- Implement a fixed appliance treatment protocol for Class I crowded, non-extraction cases
- Understand basic bracket positioning concepts and learn how to bracket teeth
- Tie in arch wires use steel ligature ties, elastic ligature ties, and open coil springs and other auxiliary appliances as part of the initial aligning process if needed
