New Treatment Options for Aligners and Combination Appliance Therapy with Suresmile

What if the selection of orthodontic appliances were a more dynamic process? What if 3D imaging and precision appliance therapy opened the doors to better treatment options and pairing of appliances that were not previously practical?

In this lecture, Dr Bankhead will challenge mainstream appliance therapy, exploring the advantages of selecting differing appliances to deliver more precise, efficient and cost-effective results. More broadly, he’ll discuss new treatment possibilities made possible by SureSmile’s suite of aligner technology. His lecture will touch on specific case studies, including instances where the technology has greatly improved efficiency and outcomes for labial, lingual and aligner appliances. Provide today’s demanding patients the esthetics they want and the clinical results they expect by exploring new possibilities in therapeutic treatment.

Learning objectives:

  • Discover the benefits of using the SureSmile platform to provide a strong foundation for diagnosis, appliance selection and execution of orthodontic treatment
  • Evaluate the advantages that control over the design of and manufacturing of aligners has on application, outcome, and cost of therapy.
  • Identify opportunities combination appliance therapy provides to increase therapeutic efficiency, outcome and patient satisfaction
