WEBINAR – Class II Correction With Clear Aligners

Online Webinar

The demand for clear aligner therapy is huge and growing rapidly.  Clear aligner technology has improved significantly in the recent past, however, there remains limitations to the aligner-only treatment approach. A-P correction with clear aligners alone is still a clinical challenge. Having tried and failed, Dr. McFarlane no longer relies on only aligners to provide Class II correction. Instead, he uses the Motion 3D™ to provide fast and predictable Class II correction along with clear aligners. This webinar will explore the when, why and how of hybrid Class II correction with clear aligners. Learning Objectives: Understand the limitations of Class II [...]

WEBINAR – The Benefits of Sagittal First Orthodontic Treatment
