We wrap up STRAIGHTPRIL with a HUGE one – what makes aligners predictable? How can we make aligner treatment protocols efficient starting right from the planning stages and the Clincheck. I am joined by a fellow podcaster and specialist Orthodontist Dr Farooq Ahmed who is a wizard with Aligners!
Protrusive Dental Pearl: Use floss to create loops and use a chain retainer, like Ortho-Flextech which has made it much easier in my hands!
In this episode we discussed:
- How to pick the winning cases
- Which movements are tricky and how we can overcome them (including deep bite!!)
- Should we overcorrect expansion?
- What is Farooq’s take on elastics and aligners?
- Clincheck golden nuggets!
