Einführung in die Kieferorthopaedische Frühbehandlung mit transparenten Clear Alignern.

Phase 1, vom 5. bis zum 11. Lebensjahr

Phase 1, vom 11. bis zum 18. Lebensjahr

Early Interceptive Orthodontics with Clear Aligners with a holistic approach including breathing, chewing, swallowing and function & occlusion.

Clear Aligners are firmly established in orthodontics and the treatment options have greatly expanded. Unfortunately, most of the growing patients is still treated with classic approaches like fixed braces in teenage years. Early interceptive orthodontics with clear aligners however is hardly being used at all which means that opportunities are being missed to treat the problems when the arise. Prevention is better than cure! Today, this orthodontic treatment with clear aligners can be usefully integrated into any dental practice and could increase revenue drastically.
The key question in orthodontics is: why are the malocclusions developing? Where can and should the teeth be moved to? This question will be answered in detail in the course series and all aspects important for this will be highlighted.

The necessary advanced knowledge in orthodontics, new findings from paediatric sleeping disorders including diagnostic and treatment of tongue ties, RNO Principle after Pedro Planas, occlusion & function and aesthetics are taught in the course.

Especially the findings from sleep medicine, in particular sleep-related paediatric breathing disorders show that the tongue position, the tongue space and the tongue area are of great importance during the growth and development phase and in every phase of life.

This has decisively changed diagnostics and therapy in orthodontics.

Strong attention has been given to myofunctional therapy and the functional matrix, which plays a key role in training the muscles and tongue both in the growth/developmental phase.

The key to success treating growing patients is to understand how all the above-mentioned topics are linked and to find out what could have caused the teeth to move in specified positions thinking of growth & development, Functional Matrix, Function & Occlusion and Breathing & Chewing & Swallowing. If you can treat the source of the problem, you not only will create a beautiful smile without the need for teeth extractions but as well eventually change and improve a child’s life.

The goal of the course series:

  • Learn how to start diagnosing the minute you see a child.
  • You will learn which findings are required for successful aligner therapy.
  • They can use these findings to determine a diagnosis and a priority list, from that, treatment options that should be considered.
  • You will learn to define exact staging patterns for your treatment platform independent from the clear aligner system you use.
  • You will learn to evaluate and correct your treatment plan using 3D tools.
  • You will learn how to transition from phase 1 and 2 and how to treat teenage patients.
  • You will learn how to manage complex growing patients using 3D metal printed devices, palatal miniscrews and facemasks.
