BIOMECHANIC COURSE ON SELF-LIGATING BRACKETS AND TADs
AIMS OF THE COURSE
Delegates who attend this orthodontic course will be given the tools, techniques
and confidence to immediately treat moderate to difficult cases in their own
practices. You will learn about the fundamental bases of multibracket orthodontics
and understand the importance of biomechanics in the various treatment phases
with and without TADs.
You will learn about the clinical principles and limitations of different orthodontic
appliances and self-ligating bracket systems and anchorage reinforcement with
TADs. You will understand the actual archwire sequences in the different malocclusions,
providing therapeutical concepts and clinical tips for each clinical situation,
especially in the management of anchorage control and extraction cases. You will
see how orthodontics has changed its mechanics since the introduction of cortical
anchorage and TADs. You will learn and try onto typodonts where it is safe to insert
miniscrews and how to fabricate the anchorage for various clinical situations
(videos and hands-on). Several exercises will be conducted onto typodonts.
You will learn the importance of a careful diagnosis and how to screen your patients
to select those cases suitable for self-ligating multibracket therapy with or without
mini-implants, with or without extractions, with or without orthognathic surgery.
The course will include typodont exercises to support the theoretical lectures.
There will also be opportunities to bring along your own cases for discussion.
