This is a two part series covering everything you ever wanted to know on how to diagnose, apply, place and execute use of MSE and TADs in the orthodontic treatment.
Part I of this course is geared towards practitioners who have not done many orthodontic cases and have never placed MSE or TADs or placed very few and still struggling with basics.
This course will present basic orthodontic diagnosis and simplified and practical approach to planning an orthodontic case. We will discuss necessary records and how to approach each case. While we review some basic knowledge, we will primarily focus on cases that would benefit from the use of MSE and/or TADs.
We will also focus on how to plan and set up an Invisalign clincheck for the best and predictable outcomes.
We will then proceed on planning basic MSE and TADs use utilizing CBCT and other existing 3D software/technology. We will review lab orders, proper placement procedures and protocols.
We will discuss possible complications and failures.
We will have a hands on portion of placing MSE on the model. We also will have a live patient basic MSE placement clinical demonstration. Participants will be able to see everything up close and understand the flow of the procedure.
At the end of the second day we will spend time on reviewing clinical cases where MSE and/or TADs were used.
Part II of the course will be geared towards practitioners who have placed MSE/TADs already and are looking for more advanced information. The participants should possess some basic knowledge of orthodontics and have treated a few cases prior to the course.
We will begin the session with a brief review of the basics. Then, we will delve into advanced orthodontic diagnosis and clinical applications of MSE and TADs. In addition to this, we will show how to set up more complex cases using Invisalign clinchecks, and showcase progress with case photos.
Furthermore, the course will cover the following key aspects:
- Understanding the goals of tooth movement and timing it in the clincheck in relation to MARPE development.
- Providing a checklist for the goals of the clincheck.
- Reviewing expansion failures and how to avoid them predictably.
- Introducing Piezotomy for use in adult patients to make adult cases predictable. This will include a review of failures, possible side effects, emergencies, protocols, and related procedures.
Finally, we will have a hands-on portion on piezotomy utilizing 3D printed models, followed by observation of live piezo-assisted MARPE placement in adult patients. Participants will be able to closely observe and follow all the procedures.
The attendee should be able to plan and place MSE/MARPE/ TADs, with piezo cuts, following completion of the course.
