orthodontics changing the way we care for our patients?
The orthodontic field is buzzing with new digital
workflows for orthodontist. It seems as if every day has a new way of providing
treatment or a new piece of equipment we must have to stay current.
Dr. Christensen will share his experiences with new
technologies and discuss his highs and lows of being an early adopter of some
of the technologies available in orthodontics. A clinical part will demonstrate some of the routine applications of
digital technologies in the practice such as indirect bonding, cast metal
appliances and functional appliances. In a philosophical part Dr.
Christensen will debate whether these new technologies dictate the treatment we
provide. Most solutions are
advertised as making orthodontics easy – the argument in this lecture is that
digital solutions does not make orthodontics easy. Digital technologies can
perhaps improve our control of the orthodontic treatment.
